Does anybody remember Phantom Sweet Cigarettes? In the 70s, it was mainly for a Phantom cigarette, anybody? a boy to strut around with one of these ciggies in the mouth. Like Amitabh Bachchan and his half-chewed beedi in ‘Deewar’. They weren’t tobacco-stuffed cigarettes, of course.

Fate is a great equalizer… … Knowing you are alone in the custody of the judicial system, despite your commitment to stay with those who said they would be by your side no matter what must be dreadful. A remand in police custody is only marginally less humiliating than being at the mercy of the courts. Interrogating the accused at odd hours and denying sleep is the way many crimes are solved.
