  1. “…he would buy drugs from Kerala and sell it to youth from salethuru, kudthamugeru, maadakatte….” – report on one Jalaaludeen.

    Well, those who know these areas clearly know what he meant by ‘youth’ here!! smiles….These areas are similar to Kalladka, Kannuru and parangipete!!! Then again, I respect the the unwritten laws of modern day reporting!! LOL

    On a different note, drugs should be legal. I don’t know why alcohol is openly sold while these ganja peddlers are arrested!! I wish there was an open debate and discussion in our society. Oh well…
