The DA case judgement [PDF] is 570 pages long. But there is a rather interesting supplement at the end which is very short. I’d encourage you to read those 7 pages at the least, if not for anything else, just for the language of the honourable justice Amitava Roy (who by the way happens to be a Bengali). Sample this:

“A growing impression in contemporary existence seems to acknowledge, the all pervading pestilent presence of corruption almost in every walk of life, as if to rest reconciled to the octopoid stranglehold of this malaise with helpless awe. The common day experiences indeed do introduce one with unfailing regularity, the variegated cancerous concoctions of corruption with fearless impunity gnawing into the frame and fabric of the nation’s essentia. Emboldened by the lucrative yields of such malignant materialism, the perpetrators of this malady have tightened their noose on the societal psyche. Individual and collective pursuits with curative interventions at all levels are thus indispensable to deliver the civil order from the asphyxiating snare of this escalating venality.”

Tamil popculture does have an expression one needs right now: ppaah!
