You may not be able to change the world, but at least you can embarrass the guilty. 
-Jessica Mitford, author, journalist, and civil rights activist (1917-1996)

The Mitford lineage is a much-admired one. Jessica is the much younger sister of Nancy of ‘Noblesse Oblige’ fame. Jessica had won acclaim in many fields of activism. It is widely believed that, when she died in 1996, the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, "In this strangely flat era of 'diversity,' she was the rarest of birds, an exotic creature who rose each morning to become the sun around whom thousands of lives revolved."

We may therefore take her admonition seriously and shame those guilty of misdeamenors. A cause-list for those willing to fight for a cause:
  1. The Bihar parents, who assisted cheating in the examinations.
  2. Defenders of the rapists.
  3. Granite grabbers.
  4. Manalvari Mafia.
  5. Aavin diluters.
  6. Commonwealth game, 2G, coal Anthology

so many more.

As JS Mill put it,‘Eternal vigilance is the price of Liberty’.
