Peechhe se mara-wara

Mid Day reports:
Former deputy chief minister Chhagan Bhujbal said that the accused in the Gateway blasts, standing right behind him in court yesterday, terrified him.

“Peechhe se mara-wara toh problem ho jayega (If they hit me from behind, there’ll be a problem)” he muttered to advocate Rohini Salian, who smiled in reply to Bhujbal as he slid forward to the edge of his chair.

And later:
It was only after they left, that the creases disappeared from Bhujbal’s face and he relaxed again. This relief, however, was momentary — the press was waiting to grill him outside.

That's right. If the terrorists don't get you, the journalists will.
