Did Air Asia fly into dead zone?

Another aircraft has gone off the radar and this time it is the Air Asia flight travelling from Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people on board. It is another reminder of the MH 370 which disappeared off the radar last March with 239 passengers on board. The missing jet could have well gone missing due to very bad weather as a request for deviation was made, the company had said. However search operations are on and we sincerely hope that all is well.


The missing MH370 continues to be a mystery. There was without a doubt something more than what met the eye and it is clear that the Malaysian authorities were hiding something. It did not appear to be a crash as till date the debris was not found. When the plane went missing, it was said that it went off the radar. Now how does a plane go off the radar. A plane cannot be spotted only when it flies through a dead zone. A dead zone is when an aircraft is flying 200 kilometres between two radars. For someone to shoot down a plane in a dead zone it is a very difficult task as the precision needs to be that high.

A juvenile offender again; why are the laws not changing?

1374849697_Acid_attackVery often one wonders why there is so much stubbornness in amending the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children Act) which states that an offence committed by a person below 18 is an act of innocence.

While in the Nirbhaya case we saw how a juvenile offender got away with that horrific crime, this issue has once again cropped up in the Delhi acid attack case.
