The Second Etymologist is Back at Czech Republic. The Indian Story is Over?

He left to India on 19th May to a planned two month holiday, during which he wanted to collect larvae of beetles for his scientific research. Petr Svacha didn’t have an idea his staying is going to take half a year, from which a month is going to be in a prisoner’s cell.

He gave away an interview for Denik, so now we know he feels good, and is glad he is home and legally, by which he points to the other etymologist, who had to escape from India law which went wrong in this whole absurd case. Svach anyway congratulates the other one for making it, stating that to play fair is possible only if the other side plays fair as well.

When he describes India prison, it is something one would probably really like to escape from: 25 m long room, with Turkish toilet in one corner and a television in the other, and two-metre long benches with the prisoners – there is about 30 of them in each room.

So the story is over – the two etymologists are finally home in the Czech Republic, with a story to tell their grandchildren. However, it pointed out the absurdity of the local law we are not used to in Western countries.
