Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 160

Jail Diary xvii
Sanjay wakes up knowing that today is his last chance of legal option and he is determined to do it with a smile. Summoned before a four judge bench at the Supreme Court he says his final prayers for divine intervention.
It does not help. The judge does not find merit in Dutt’s curative petition – the last procedural resort for a party to seek redressal against SC verdict. A bench of justice had on March 21 upheld Dutt’s conviction but
SC on May 10 dismissed his plea for a review of its judgment.
Sanjay is sorely disappointed but is determined not to break down at least not in public.
He has not slept in many nights and today, is perhaps the most difficult night of all because it has frozen all possibilities of hope.
