    Maadidannu unno maharayare.Vinaasha kaale vipareetha buddhi.verdict is very much apt.Along with 10 years,you havde also been awarded 5000 as enjoy the life in jail for ten years.No water bill/no electricity bill/no house rent and free food.No tension at all.You wanted to ruin the happiness of respected family just for your greed/lust for money and wanted become overnight millionaire and enjoy the life lavishly.Every action has its own and eqaul reactions.mind it.This is a lesson for others.
