Remembering Manju at the Mumbai Marathon

Today's Indian Express carries on its front page the story about Dharmendra aka Dhammo, who ran the entire Mumbai Marathon in remembrance of Manjunath.

Dhammo, who was my senior, and Manju's classmate also has a blog - Dhammonia. As Dhammo says,

‘‘It’s not that we must forget about it since the compensation has reached the family. It’s all about justice,’’

Indeed! We are all happy that Manju's family has gotten support from all quarters. But what is more important is that his murderers be brought to justice, and the lacunae in the system be removed.
