    In the biggest disappointment for Us-based Indian filmmaker Bedabrata Pain, an American court has ruled out the possibility that his elder son Ishan, who died in a freak electrical accident in 2010, had died due to his faulty razor. Pronouncing the judgment, the Los Angeles court said that his son was on drugs and set himself on fire. Filmmaker couple Bedabrata Pain and Shonali Bose, who directed filmsChittagongandAmurespectively, fought a long and difficult court battle for the past two years against the razor company, the bereaved parents hold responsible for the accident. "Yes, we lost the case. The jury couldn't come to the conclusion that the shaver was at fault. It was a shocking decision. But that's life. For me, it changes nothing. In going through the trial, and having had to review the evidence within the last two years, I was even more convinced that the razor had produced the spark that caused the fire that claimed Ishan's life," said Pain, who is also a NASA scientist. He added, "I am going through very complicated emotions. I can't really express it. However the callousness of the razor company just makes me so sad. Even after we informed them of the tragedy, they didn't make even one attempt at investigation. Instead, they started making all kinds of allegations against Ishan.”
