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.
Supremacist conflict or paranoia.
Death to kafir is the massage to every single person who does not follow Islam is in “kufr” or ” Sin”. Those folloing Islam are superior people if not race. Democratically elected Govt. cannot determine what is right or wrong. The correct word in Persian is Halal & Haram which can only be deterrmined by Allah. The last sentence is a near reproduction of the words used by ISIS or Daesh* commander in an interview. Thus the only option for non-Islamic people or not following correct version of Islam is but to convert to Wahabi-Sunni-Islam or die.
Are all the above expressions exaggerated.?
Is it a paranoid version of a Non-Islamic person?
Unfortunately the above stanza is buildup with the word spoken, written, conveyed or preached by Terrorists, Leaders and Preachers. Continue reading

Kejri effect is a new addition to vocabulary of Indian English. Kejri effect means reckless lies in shape of false promises which the promissory is neither in position to fulfill nor has the intention to do. so. It is an inducement to sway the decision in favour of Promisor who shall be called ‘Kejri‘ for the sake of brevity.
Selecting a lawyer.
A friend called up last Sunday. His problem was that he was an educated person who had a case pending in a distant High Court and that he had a good case on merits as well as law. Case was continuing for over a decade and inspite of changing several lawyers there was no conclusion. As we discussed the friend confessed that it appears that he has been duped by lawyers in the past who promised like Kejri but simply could not deliver at all. This problem made me realize that we have new word in our thesaurus. Just to be through let me share the advice I gave to the friend. My advice to him was. Continue reading
Bad choices are sometimes more than mere mistakes.
Yakub Memon was hanged yesterday, 30th July 2015. He was found guilty of conspiracy of terrorist bomb attack killing 257 people and injuring over 700 people in Bombay in 1993. His second petition to Supreme Court was dismissed during the day. However certain legal and political intelligentsia decided that it would be in ‘public interest’ to challenge the hanging of Yakub. This public interest petition was heard during the night by Supreme Court and rejected at 3.00AM on 30th July 2015. First a little background about public interest litigation.
Public interest litigation.
Public interest litigation in India is similar to Class action suits in USA except that in India only High Court and Supreme Court have exercised it in writ jurisdiction.
A litigation can only be started by a person aggrieved. That is the law. If a cause of action is personal i.e. not relating to estate, it dies with claimant/plaintiff/petitioner. Public Interest Litigation is an exception in which a person can approach the court to seek redress on behalf of another person or class of persons if such person(s) are underprivileged or in disability.
