“She was murdered for catching an Indian priest and nun in a sex act. Three decades later, justice is served”
This article describes the story of Sister Abhaya, a 19 year old girl from Kottayam, Kerala (India), and how her family finally found justice for her murder after 27 years. “Among India’s Hindu-majority population, 2.3% follow Christianity — a figure that hasn’t changed in more than two decades. But Kerala has a sizable Christian community, around 18% of its people” (Mogul, 2021). The story goes, sister Abhaya walks in on Father Thomas Kottoor and Sister Sephy engaging in sex in the kitchen and she is then murdered and dumped in a near by well to cover up their sins. For years, her case is ruled as a suicide, but with the efforts from her father and Chief Judicial Magistrate kept all the failed investigations from closing and justice was found. According to the details from the investigation, Father Thomas Kottoor and Sister Sephy had the money and connections to cover their illicit relationship. They played Sister Abhaya to have issues, due to being from a poor family and “struggling” with her studies, which further prolonged the case being ruled a homocide.
Although poverty has declined from 54.7% in 2005 to 17% in 2020 in India, according to the World Bank, the divide in the wage gap still stikes poorer families significantly (Wiki, 2021). Poverty is cosmopolitan, a universal concern for all citizens around the world (Mackinnon and Fiala 2018, 562). In this case, Sister Abhaya is unfortunately an example of a poverty case. She came from a poorer family and it is quite obvious that the ones with more money were able to have better protection and prolong creditable investigations from finding the truth. During the investigation, the CBI found multiple officers a part of the Kottayam West Police Crime Branch had tampered with evidence and had connections with Father Thomas Kottoor. If she had come from a more wealthy family, the time frame would have been less I am sure.

JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon is paid $31.5m after decrying income inequality
This article (Links to an external site.) is a brilliant example of wealth inequality in America. The article discusses Jamie Dimon, the chairman and CEO of JP Morgan Chase and his ‘battle’ against wealth inequality. For years, Mr. Dimon has expressed the opinion that wealth inequality in America will bifurcate the economy. While he has publicly spoken out against the ever-increasing divide in economic statuses, his salary has seen a steady increase. He even saw a sizable income increase during 2020, a year in which many people were forced into poverty, with some even becoming homeless, due to the Coronavirus pandemic (Rusche, 2021). According to the article, Mr. Dimon is one of a handful of billionaires that have warned of the dangers of excessive capitalistic practices. Although Mr. Dimon has avoided questions in the past about his salary increases, there is some merit to his preaching. In March of 2019, JP Morgan Chase announced a $350 Million program that focused on boosting job prospects and training programs aimed at acquiring skills to make individuals more competitive in the job market (Son, 2019).
I do believe that wealth inequality in America is more prevalent than ever and that if left unchecked, could drive a wedge through society that does irreparable damage. The problem of economic inequality is nothing new. Recent surveys have shown that approximately 40% of Americans would struggle or be unable to cover an unexpected expense for as little as $400 (Sherter, 2019). According to our text: “…in 2014, (the last year for which data was available) …15 percent of the population lived in poverty” (MacKinnon and Fiala 2018, 346). If America is to continue as a capitalist nation, it must do so with caution, and must exhaust every effort available to close the gap in the current wealth divide. A good start is to adjust the minimum wage and reconsider what it means to earn a livable wage. Individuals should not have to work multiple jobs in order to simply survive.
