    I truly hope that was a spoof of a melodrama in one of those low budget movies in Bollywood!

  5. i was in lucknow high court, we were waiting for our case. there was a case which was being argued about why a man was arrested. The judge looked at the government lawyer and asked:
    judge: counsel, why is this man arrested?
    lawyer: lordships, he is a pick pocket.

    judge: (going through the case file), have you seen his wife's picture?
    lawyer: no lordships.

    judge: such a beautiful woman, cannot be a pickpockets wife. please release this man!
