want create site? find free wordpress themes and plugins.~by inderjit badhwar“let reverence for the laws be breathed by every american mother … let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling books, and in almanacs—let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. let it become the political religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay of all sexes and tongues, and colors and conditions keep the rule of law.”this quote from abraham lincoln was how the current deputy attorney general of the united states, rod rosenstein, ended a recent speech at the bar association of montgomery county’s law day celebration in maryland.rosenstein is probably the most talked about public official in the donald trump administration. he has become the lightning rod for the fury of the white house and its republican supporters in congress for refusing to play footsie with them in the ongoing justice department investigation headed by special counsel robert mueller into the trump administration’s subterranean interactions with the russians, designed to influence the outcome of the presidential election.the ongoing probe is a textbook case for all constitutional democracies—especially india—on the role and conduct of prosecutors in the disinterested pursuit of fraud, waste and corruption. it is an abject lesson on the practic...

delhi durbar: an inside track of happenings in lutyens’ delhi
want create site? find free wordpress themes and plugins.foreign ties resetnew delhi has decided it is time to change the focus of its foreign policy which revolved around the us. now, the new approach is to pay more importance to neighbours to prevent them getting too close to china—narendra modi’s trip to nepal was part of the new strategy. all other neighbours, even the maldives, despite extreme provocation, have been subjected to a charm offensive. the diplomatic outreach includes countries getting close to pakistan.modi discussed pakistan’s terror tactics with president xi in wuhan and next week, he meets vladimir putin (russia is negotiating arms deals with islamabad). another pakistan ally, north korea has also just received a rare visit by an indian minister, general vk singh (left).simultaneously, delhi has restarted the stalled raisina dialogue with pakistan, also known as track ii, where informal but secret talks are held between retired ifs, ias, armed forces and academics and intelligence officials, from both sides, acting on behalf of their governments. the ramzan ceasefire break in j&k would also suggest that the big brother approach to smaller neighbours has boomeranged and the pressure on delhi by china, the us and others is for a resumption of formal talks with pakistan. track ii is a baby step in that direction.rahul’s single status?he is india’s most eligible bachelor, now getting a bit long in the tooth, so is marriage an option? it would seem s...

media watch: latest happenings in the corridors of journalism
want create site? find free wordpress themes and plugins.absurd claimndtv founder prannoy roy is no stranger to vile attacks from right-wing trolls on social media but he must certainly have been left laughing his guts out at the absurdity of a message that has been circulating about him on whatsapp for the past few days. the message claims that a cbi raid at roy’s residence has unearthed the veteran journalist’s original birth certificate which states roy’s “real name” as parvez raja and his place of birth as karachi. it adds that the cbi sleuths even found a dartboard in roy’s bedroom that “uses narendra modi’s face as a target”.the most outlandish claim in the message, however, is about roy’s wife, radhika. not only has the depraved mind behind this message found radhika’s original name to be “rahila” but it has also tracked her to be the granddaughter of a cook who served in the army of babur, the founder of the mughal dynasty. given that babur died in 1530, radhika’s grandfather—a cook in the mughal ruler’s army as the message claims—and perhaps her father after him must have partaken of the elixir from the fountain of youth to have a third-generation descendant still alive to rile the bhakts.incidentally, prannoy’s father, known by his doon school name of ‘hurricane’ roy, was one of the leading corporate figures of calcutta, as it was known then, for many decades. his wife was irish.not business as usualwhen anurag batra, founder ...

satire: ‘serious’ issues that plagued the karnataka elections
want create site? find free wordpress themes and plugins. ~by dilip bobbfractured verdicts are bad for democracy, as we are seeing in karnataka which is becoming more natak than kar. ideologically committed governors, power hungry politicians and the obsession with a congress mukt bharat makes for a witches brew, in which the constitution and morality melt in the morass. the problem with indian democracy, as seen in karnataka, lies in the issues that voters base their decisions on.  so what were the issues in this election? here are some clues that explain why the voting went haywire.mudhol dogs: a type of hound that comes from bagalkot in the state. it was the first canine breed to be inducted into the indian army. based on that little known fact, in a dog eat dog electoral battle, narendra modi made a point of using his election rallies to say that the congress needed to learn lessons in patriotism from mudhol dogs. it was a dog whistle strategy, in which the population gets a message without understanding the meaning or context.field marshall cariappa: also to do with the army and patriotism, modi went to town—and village, and street corner—, declaring how a hero of karnataka, field marshall cariappa, the indian army’s first commander in chief, had been humiliated by jawaharlal nehru. modi’s obsession with the nehru family often backfires, as did this election issue, since it was neither true or was backed by any historical evidence. it was left to cariappa’s s...

cyberia: can the beast be tamed?
the point here is that it is not limited to free speech or press freedom alone. we already have a robust ipc and other penal acts for almost everything that is violated on the net (see box). why do we need more control and how will it be achieved? what can be done to remedy a situation where an entire society is committing crimes on a daily basis because it is easy to do so? it’s easy to hide behind a computer or mobile screen and extort, plan a murder or heist, commit fraud, whore, pimp, troll and do almost anything that was way too difficult before the net came into our lives, with its cousins, 3g and 4g, armed with fb and whatsapp. the truth is researchers are only just beginning to un­derstand how the internet influences people’s behaviour and new communication technology is used to form and main­tain relationships, pursue interests, and otherwise engage in a virtual world. what is understood is that the internet efficiently connects individuals who would previously have been iso­lated from one another. importantly, this activity is done in relative anonymity, which contributes to close relationship formations because of reduced risks of self-disclosure. thus, it presents some unique opportunities for deviant behaviour.journalist aniruddha bahal cites the it act to say that india monitors its social media, mahathir. photo: anil shkayaa study conducted by harvard university reported: “people have always lied, cheated, and stolen, but the internet enables some of u...

insolvency & bankruptcy code: the cauldron froths...
want create site? find free wordpress themes and plugins.above: jaypee home buyers demand a judicial probe into the delay of their flat allotments/photo: unithough a 14-member panel has recommended amending the insolvency & bankruptcy code to treat home buyers as financial creditors, it is yet to fructify. the supreme court has now stepped in to give them succour~by mukesh kackeri had predicted in my last column on insolvency & bankruptcy code (corporate cauldron, december 24, 2017) that it would throw up so many issues that the corporate cauldron would not only keep bubbling but would froth and boil over from time to time. my prognosis has proved prescient with developments relating to insolvency dominating the business and financial landscape of the country during the last five months with no abatement in sight.while new cases of insolvency have also come in (reliance communication is the latest!), the chaotic happenings in this area have largely been due to three factors—emergence of new and hitherto unimagined issues in the insolvency resolution process, the plethora of legal cases that different stakeholders have initiated against one another and conflicting interpretations of the ibc by warring parties. true, there has been some forward movement in handling a few major issues correctly, but total clarity is yet to emerge.one of the major issues that has seen some traction is the treatment of home buyers of under-construction apartments when the insolvency/bankruptcy o...

dangers of internet: what is fake news?
want create site? find free wordpress themes and plugins.though the madras hc has said that forwarding a message is equal to accepting and endorsing it, it is debatable as to what is fake news. it’s all a question of perception… ~by ranjeev c dubeywhen journalist-turned-politician s ve shekhar casually forwarded a social media post suggesting that women journalists needed to sleep with their bosses to keep their jobs, he found himself accused of crimes under sections 504 (provoking breach of peace), 505 (public mischief) and 509 (insulting the modesty of a woman) of the ipc. facing arrest, shekhar pleaded that he forwarded “ideas” without great thought, whether or not he agreed with them. in any case, he argued that he had no intention of committing a crime.the madras high court was unimpressed. words may be said in the heat of the moment and regretted later, it ruled on may 10, but putting such words in writing meant that the author knew the consequences of what he had written. in culmination, the court established a remarkable new legal principle: “forwarding a message is equal to accepting and endorsing the message.”at a superficial level, those of us who have suffered at the hands of compulsive forwarders of perverse social media trash will be gratified that the law now requires citizens to behave like responsible adults. some of us will probably be relieved that it will now be a tiny bit more difficult to circulate obvious fake news without facing the consequ...

another disaster in the making: lease out your farm land and be trapped in 18% gst net from june 1
want create site? find free wordpress themes and plugins.the tax regime is set to enter agricultural land, so far exempt from taxation. from june 1, income from all agricultural land that has been rented or leased out – which means that the owner himself does not plough the land and sells its products for him or herself, but has contractual farmers – will have to pay gst at the rate of 18 per cent. this will have to be paid by the owner of the land.not only is the gst a confusing and complicated tax structure, its entry into the farm sector would immediately mean that prices of farm products would jump to record levels. it will also mean that farmers who had been on the brink of committing suicide because of no return on investment and mounting debt will now be even closer to death. it also means that the government’s minimum support price for farm produce will make no sense at all, tagged with 18 percent gst in some cases and nil gst in certain others.this can only be a recipe of disaster and there is already huge resentment about this growing.gst, which was started with much fanfare on july 1 last year, has failed to address the total confusion it has generated within the msme sector, with gst rates in most products far exceeding existing vat rates. the entire system was put in force without any detailed study of ground realities and the paperwork involved in this has grown manifold.talking about paperwork, these owners will now have to file gst returns as well. for t...
