Rule of Law is to dispense justice in court not on road:
In 1950 a suit was filed in court claiming certain right over a property. How long the courts should take to dispense Justice?
What delay should be acceptable if dispute relates to an ‘alleged‘ birthplace of Lord Ram?
Ram is to the majority of population of India what Christ is to Christians or Mohammad to Muslims. Diwali, the main Hindu Festival is celebrated to commemorate the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after epic battle with Ravan.
So how long it takes to decide a civil suit?
History of Treachery in India
Tryst with treachery in India is rather ancient. However at first, I will refer to two namely Jaichand and Mir Jafar. Have you ever met any person in India with identical name? No and never. Their treacherous conduct is too well known. However one name is not so notorious. He is Gulab Singh. People do name Gulab but reason is that his treachery is not too well known.
Jaichand is also spelled as Jai Chandra and has a wiki page devoted to him here. According to this page the betrayal of Jaichand is fictional. As if history is not fictional. As per another wiki page, Jaichand was king of Kannouj and there was no Prithviraj Chouhan.
As regards Mir Jafar, it is too recent to falsify. He is a character which is also part of French History. Mir Jafar, was the commander in the army of Nawab of Bengal Siraj-Ud-Daulah. He betrayed Siraj ud-Daulah to become the next Nawab. Thus after helping the British defeat Siraj ud-Daulah he became the new Nawab of Bengal in 1757 with military support from the British East India Company as a reward for his betrayal. Wiki page on Mir Jafar affirms this. Continue reading
Seeking information in this era.
Information Age is the era we live in. Information gathering was never so fast. In 1966 when Star Trek , a ScFi TV show was launched the dream of information age was first envisaged. Star trek had a talking computer which could answer back any information which was asked to it. In 50 years of Star Trek, we have crossed into the era where information can be sought from computer by asking the right question on the phone itself. It is called Google Now on Android phone and Siri on iPhone. But I wonder if the Megyn Kelly, Arvind Kejriwal and Donald Trump knows about it. They seem to be too self obsessed to notice anything. But ladies first.
When Megyn Kelly met PM Modi in Russia.
Megyn Kelly is supposed to be a journalist. Therefore it is also supposed that if she is going to interview a politician, who would do her home work. Which now days can be done on phone itself. In few minutes one can find out about any person by looking at social profile on facebook and twitter etc.
Example of corruption by PSU while doing ‘legal’ thing:
Socialism brought into existence industries owned by Govt. Some of these are monopolies of sort and are also in profit. The companies which are in profit are given a lot of autonomy by Government and in India such Companies are called and given a status called ‘Navratnas’ or one of the nine jewels. One such jewel under Ministry of Railway called up our office to seek legal opinion in respect of a matter which was patently wrong.
This is the reply given by us to them:
We have strict policy of not to be part of any corrupt practice. Opinion shopping is one such corrupt practice. Though we do not imply any corruption on your part at all.
Some PSU officials resort to seeking opinions from a number of lawyers but use one opinion which favours their cause. Since they can’t keep other contrary opinions on record, others are destroyed. And the lawyer who gave favourable opinion gets paid.
Accordingly to discourage this corrupt practice we have as a policy insist on upfront payment so that the opinion given be us remains on record.
In the year 2012 your predecessor took an opinion and was not happy with it. Hence our bill is still unpaid. We were not given any reason for non payment. Emails ignored and phone call refused as busy.
If you desire details of that transactions can be made available.
Under these circumstances we insist advance payment and can not render opinion without an advance payment.
We regret if it caused you any inconvenience.
