When life imprisonment in our country means only bloody senseless 14 years, then why the hell such a 'phrased' term as life term? Or sentenced for life?

There is no such thing as life imprisonment being for 14 or 20 years. That is a misconception spread out in India. Supreme Court of India has already clarified that life imprisonment means that the convict will be in prison until the end of his/her life. The 14-year limit comes from a separate provision in the Criminal Procedure Code.
