December 26, 2013. The district court in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, validated the recomendations of the special-investigation team and dismissed the charges against Mr. Narendra Modi's involvement in the Gujarat massacre in 2002.  He was the Chief Minister of the state then and is now.

Immediately after the verdict, Mr. Modi tweeted, "Satyameva Jayate" -- that truth triumphs at the end.  The words sound hollow.

Referring to the 2001 earthquake, he wrote on his blog, "Hundreds of lives were lost. Lakhs were rendered homeless. Entire livelihoods were destroyed. In such traumatic times of unimaginable suffering, I was given the responsibility to soothe and rebuild. And we had wholeheartedly plunged ourselves into the challenge at hand."

Of course the hardcore supporters will lap it up, but this should have happened as an initiative and not as a reaction.

Mr. Modi, did you not have the responsibility to soothe and restore the lives of the riot victims, at least with some heart if not wholeheartedly? If you had cared for them, the world would have been with you and you did not have to play these games.

However, you still have the time to show if you really have a pure heart that does not discriminate any one. Mr. Modi said, "I pray to God that no bitterness seeps into my heart". Please do the praischit (repentance);  prayers alone won't cut it, and they are merely words.
