There was a man who was born into a Reddy household. He always wanted to be join the police force when he grew up. He achieved his dream and went on to become the DGP. But one day, he made a statement which made people lose his respect for him. He said ‘Rapes and murders are not strictly under the control of the police. I am telling you a frankly down-to-earth point. People are turning out to be more fashionable. Even in villages they are wearing salwar kameezes. All these provoke and this cannot be under the control of the police. So rapes increase or decrease…. What happened next? Read our first edition of Tangy Tuesday Picks for the year 2012. 🙂
