JANATA DURBARS, THE PARALLEL Robot to climb coconut tree JUDICIARY OF LAW MAKERSIS IT LEGALLY BINDING ? Of late, Janata Durbars that are being run by politicians in many states are becoming more and more popular. The summary justice that is being delivered and the orders that are being passed and executed by the executive are faster than the fastest fast track courts of the country. In India, if one files a criminal police complaint against somebody or a civil suit in court, the police or the court first investigates the genuineness of the complaint and then investigates the guilt of the defendant and then passes orders and punishments that has to be executed by the executive branch of the Govern-

M. Thomas , USA ment. This process could take decades due to the gross underfunding and consequent undermining of the judiciary by the legislature. In such a scenario, the convenient janata durbars are a god send for complainants. All they have to do is go to a janata durbar and file a complaint to the politician or Minister conducting the janata durbar and lo and behold, orders are passed directly from these extra constitutional authorities to the executive authorities like Police Commissioners, other Government officers etc. who are forced to be present at the janata durbar. There is no research into the genuineness of the complaint, no discovery, no investigation, no evidence presented; no witnesses examined, no cross examination, no dismissal, no law being followed, just orders being passed. Orders are passed directly from the Minister to the Executive Authorities. How convenient for complainants who are close to the Minister conducting the janata durbar or to his party. The operation of the janata durbar is exactly like a durbar of

the Maharajas of India. In the olden days when Maharajas were usually cruel and crooked dictators, they held a court with their 'chelas' and used to hear the complaints of the people and issue summary orders arbitrarily based on his mood without following any due process of law. This was in the days of absolute control of the Maharaja who used to be the head of the executive and the Judiciary with supreme authority. However in a democracy, the judiciary, the lawmakers and the executive are three separate bodies who are controlled through a system of checks and balances and separation of powers under which no wing of the Government can influence or control or manipulate the working of the others. But the legislators have found ways to manipulate this system. Ever since independence the judiciary has not been funded properly resulting in a lack of courts and judges and a backlog of cases that could take decades to judge. In such a scenario, crooked and pompous politicians hit upon an even greater idea to become an extra constitutional judiciary and have their own courts. In the guise (continued on page 4 )

IS RISING PUBLIC ANGER A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY ? T

he recent slapping of Sharad Pawar, Union Minister for Agriculture, by an angry youth over the issue of inflation and corruption has brought to the fore the issue of whether rising public anger is a threat to democracy or whether it is a harbinger of good times to come for the people of India as it would make politicians afraid of the public rather than the other way it is now. It is not to be assumed that the slap was directed at Sharad Pawar for being corrupt. The slap was just a symbolic one for all lawmakers who are corrupt, estimated to be 99.9% of all lawmakers both ruling and opposition. Sharad Pawar just had the bad luck of coming close to this person, due to low security. This newspaper condemns the slapping incident of Sharad Pawar as a shame for Indian democracy. Anna Hazare the anticorruption crusader first joked and laughed at it and then he too rightfully said that violence was against democracy. But the very fact that all politicians of all hues and colors closed ranks on the slapping incident shows that all different political parties may fight with each other but when one of them gets slapped by a common man on the issue of corruption, they all rise together and become one and condemn the common man. The man who slapped Sharad Pawar has also been slapped with many charges including attempt to suicide so as to ensure that he will be behind bars for a long time to come. He would surely also have been tortured in jail by the police for his brazen attempt to slap a senior Cabinet Minister. His family is trying to prove that he is mentally unstable so as to

prevent him from being tortured in jail. The media and some lawmakers want to dismiss the case as something done by an insane person to reduce the significance of people who are angry at corruption. According to the details presented, the court subsequently asked for a mental evaluation and he has been kept in a mental hospital. One wonders if a person who slapped a commoner on the road would be charged with so many charges. Probably he would be given bail on the same day and released. Thousands of people die every month due to violence sparked by politicians. How many politicians have spoken or saw justice for those killed? Do they even bother? What happened in Gujarat? If Gujarat MP Ehsan Jaffri was chopped and tortured and killed in Gujarat in 2002, there was not much hue and cry because the killers were politicians too. Had Ehsan Jaffri been killed by the common man over corruption, then there would be a hue and cry in parliament and huge numbers of people would be arrested and tortured in jails. This piece is not meant to say that violence is not to be condemned but meant to show the public the priorities of an opposition who would vehemently fight against even a small slap against corruption. Their support for Anna Hazare is hollow and Anna too would be relegated to the background if they ever come to power. Public Anger is the only thing that can help bring some fear in the minds of lawmakers and thus help the democratic process. It can never be a threat to democracy but public apathy or in contrast public violence due to anger sure is.

Diabetes drugs cuts Cancer risk A low-Cost diabetes drug seems to beat the growth of breast cancer, especially by preventing a number of natural and man-made chemicals that promote it . James Trosko from Michigan State University and a team from South Korea's Seoul National University have thrown up evidence to show that use of metformin for Type-2 diabetes reduces risk of cancers. “People with Type-2 diabetes are known to be at high risk for several diabetes-associated cancers such as breast, liver and pancreatic cancers,” Saied Trosko, paediatrics professor at Michigan's Collage of Human Medicine. “While metformin has been shown in population studies to reduce the risk of these cancers, there was no evidence of how it worked,” the journal Public Library of science quotded him as saying. Trosko and colleagues, using culture dishes, grew miniature human breast tumours or mammospheres that activated a certain stem cell gene, according to a Michigan University statement.

In Criminal Justice Administration

T

o maintain order and peace in society and to prevent, detect and control crime, the state provides its law enforcement machinery, particularly the police, with wide ranging powers. If used arbitrarily, these powers could impinge on the dignity and liberty of the individual. To preserve the human rights of the citizens, it becomes necessary to build safeguards in the criminal justice administration. Concern for human rights of individual in the criminal justice administration is of recent origin. In ancient India, the Vedas and scriptures provided the basis for Hindu jurisprudence and criminal justice administration. Village assemblies and the King administered justice, with the assistance of selected villagers and town folk. People directly participated in adjudicating guilt and awarding punishment. The emphasis was on the good of the society, and the impact of punish-

ment on the individual was of no relevance. Presumption of Innocence As in human rights, where the emphasis is on basic human dignity, the basic principle that an individual is presumed to be innocent till the contrary is proved against him has been enshrined in Article 21 of Indian Constitution and in Article 14 (2) of the International Covenant of Civil and

Political Rights 1966. Prevention of ex-post facts operation of criminal Law The Second principle is that no person can be accused and convicted of an offence for an act which was not an offence under the law in force on the date when it was committed. This is a guarantee against the ex-post facts operation of Criminal Law. This principle has been enshrined in Article 20 (1) of the Constitution of India and Article 11(2) of the Universal Declaration of human Rights. Protection against “double jeopardy” The third important principal in ensuring human right is the protection against double jeopardy; no person can be punished for the same offence twice. This has been enshrined in the Indian Constitution in Article 20 (2) and also in the criminal procedure code.

What is grants writing ? What Dr. Man Mohan wrote as a grant to USA in India ? D

o you have liberal arts education? Are you a wordsmith? Are you persuasive by nature? Are you sympathetic to peoples problems? Can you present the problem as a good proposal for funding? Are you able to do writing in a cogent and convincing manner for a compelling attention of the proper authority to fund you? May be you are one to do grant writing. Like wise is our prime minister for USA. Invariably lives of most Americans are affected and improved by the successful efforts of grants writers. After all there are purposes for asking grants, for every type of activity, after all resources are somewhere idle but somewhere else is needed. So one need to channelise. Companies approach banks for all kinds of credits and what the companies write is seeking granting of funding. Without funding Banks cannot survive at all. Like that our great ICICI, HDFC... to name a few. They take deposits from one source and deploy the same elsewhere, on some interest administration basis. Their successful processing of seeking needs of companies make them very important component of society. Every company fund raiser is a grant seeker but for him the company cannot be functional. Private banks do. Smt. Indira Gandhi understood as a schrewed Prime minister. When she found private banks did that she nationalized Fund raiser - private banks essentially, as they have close links with very rich corporate - is grants manager at some attractive interest rates. They also earn by their great liaison activities. Like that the companies go to public for cheap equity debt

through public offerings called IPOs. And deploy the surpluses, by spurious statements that they have to service the equity debts. Invariably banks are grants writers for IPOs. Mostly in this trade is private bankers in India. They invariably talk about the 'soundness of the company' and that means nothing repeat 'nothing', as purpose is different but needed to ask people to invest their hard earned money under facade of equity returns at stock markets. If markets dive corporate dives as a show but it makes its killing too, by buying its own shares at the loss of small investors! Why even bankers too make their pie. Sometimes they seek private offerings in the name of private placements, as a substitute if public offerings fail this private offerings will salvage, in most cases the very same promoters have floated those private investors, as venture capitalists. Private offers are some funds available in big quantum for lending from surpluses of companies generated, by any means. After all if funds surpluses are not circulated several times the money becomes fungible and a stage may come one day that surplus will become a great burden to the very company and so they go perforce whole hog to circulate as many times as possible. In fact those funds do not do

any charity but make the borrower work over and over to generate his(this man's wealth) wealth by giving interest rates while the borrower survives his needs while paying interest through nose. In fact, but for this borrowers, the lenders money not only becomes fungible but also a great burden to the very lender, if not circulated. So it is a mutual funding interest management, supported by interest rates. When the borrowals come down the lenders have to some how lend their moneys. So the concept of 'credit cards' came into being in Americas. Soon the 'Credit card' of General Electric people wanted to make fast buck as their moneys are to be utilized by borrowers. Sometimes they behave as great philontrophists. They enhanced their lend interest rates in case of some defaults in servicing by borrowers due to genuine reasons upto 50% to lent amount. And kept perpetually the 'card holder' as a perenniel borrower. This way the lenders' surpluses generated exorbitant profits at the illegal costs to borrowers. Governments keep quiet as they are paid their share too. So rich became richer and poor continued to remain poorer. Poor started thinking that they are conspired by nature but truth is rich and politics really conspired against poor and in this bandwagon banks also joined to loot the borrowers. Banks are supported by Securitization kind of Acts thanks to Chidambarams as finance ministers. Banker gives you loans and he waits to see you fail and he pounces on you with sec 5 of Securitization Act and also sec (continued on page

Immune to Anna wave

E

ven the bitterest critics of Anna Hazare would concede that the anti-corruption movement spear- headed by him has no parallels in recent times. The launch was perfectly timed; day after day, the newspapers had been exposing stories of major corruptions running into crores and crores of rupees and a stage had been reached where people had virtually got fed up with the administration. Thus, it was no wonder that the anticorruption crusade led by Anna received a tremendous response. Thousands of people from all parts of the country took to the streets. They held public rallies, undertook fasts and organized different forms of protest. There were several functions in which even school children participated and took oath against corruption. The Hazare wave swept through the country like a tornado and even shook the citadels of power. However, a particular section of our society appears to be totally oblivious to the happenings around. These people seem to be blissfully unaware of the rising tide of public anger against corruption unleashed by the Hazare team. It is none other than the category of bribe takers. For them, it is business as usual, Hazare or no Hazare. If you take a look at the newspapers for the last few months, you will be convinced that officials at various levels have been accepting, even extorting, bribes without any let or hindrance. In a shocking incident of police brutality, a truck driver was allegedly clubbed to death,

A time to be born and a time to die (Eccl. 3:1) Job's answer to his three friends, Elipha, Bildad and Zophar very clearly confirms that a human being has an appointed time to be up on earth. He/she is full of trouble, comes forth like a flower and is cut down-flees as a shadow. Job had a firm hope and faith that he will see his God by his own eyes. Death is only the gateway to enter into heaven where all the souls will be judged as per their deeds. Many believers do not give much thought to the judgment which they have to face in future. Death is always an uninvited guest and death is not at all the end of road. A true believer knowns that after living for 70 or 80 years with sorrows, illness, failures and pains, he/she will fly away to the Lord. Yes, the present troubles are temporary and we all have a great eternity. Indebted to Suvartha

for refusing to pay a bribe of Rs. 5000, by constables of the Regional Transport Office in Chandauli, U.P. His crime was that he was short of cash and was unable to meet the demand of the police. Post Hazare movement, it is perhaps the most barbaric incident that has been reported. Nearer home, on 14th Sep. 2011, a police sub-inspector attached to the Bhayander police station was caught red handed while accepting a bribe of Rs. 50000 from a local builder for negotiating a disputed land deal. The original demand was Rs. 5 lakh, which on bargaining was brought down to Rs. 2 lakh. As a first installment, PSI Shiv Shankar More had already received Rs. 75000 and his arrest by the CBI came while receiving the second installment of Rs. 50000. This was the third incident in a month when police personnel landed in the ACB net for accepting bribes to settle property related disputes. Recently, a senior inspector of Vile Parle police station was apprehended by the ACB for accepting a bribe of Ts. 15000 from a local shopkeeper. The complainant in this case, had bought a tea shop from a woman and wanted to do some repair work which was illegal. Senior inspector Jaisingh Patil promised to help him and demanded a sum of Rs. 50000 to sort out the matter. The money was paid, but within a few weeks, Patil again called up the victim on his mobile and allegedly threatened to take legal action if he failed to pay an additional Rs. 15000. Interestingly, Patil was trapped in the wake of Police Commi-ssioner's warning to senior ins-pectors to stay away from civil disputes. In another case, a colonel posted at the Border Roads Task Force was arrested along with his deputy by the Central Bureau of Investigation after they were caught red handed receiving bribes

from a contractor in Udhampur district. They were caught while accepting a bribe of Rs. 23000 for releasing a payment of Rs. 14. 58 Lakh to the supplier. The amount, according to them , was only the normal commission @ 1.5 %. One can go on and on narrating cases of corruption. It is important to note that only a fraction of the cases gets reported in the press. Generally victims take the trouble of complaining to the authorities only when the harassment for bribes becomes unbearable. It is a fact that as in the case of the colonel, many in government service believe that a 'commission' is their right and there is nothing wrong in accepting it. The crucial question is whether Anna Hazare's agitation will mend these people overnight? Though his campaign is against graft, the focus is on the enactment of a Jan Lokpal bill in accordance with the draft which has been prepared by his team. The general public has to deal with different government and municipal departments and corruption is a major issue. The discussions on the Jan Lokpal bill are currently centered on the higher echelons including elected representatives, ministers, judiciary, office of the Prime Minister etc. Is corruption in our country rampant because there are no laws to tackle it ? Will a new Act of parliament or State legislatures eradicate the menace? The answer obviously is 'no' in both the cases. It is not easy for those who are habituated to taking bribes to suddenly give up the habit. The outlook on a transparent, graft free administration is really dismal. Hope lies in the new generation of young enterprising officers who value self respect above all.

(What is grants writing...

People may have seen bank employees, and company, private and public sector why government employees are paid exorbitantly. In fact all the employees of all classes are forced to 'consume the resources' as many times as possible just to ensure lender is safe for ever. That is consumption econo-mics capitalistic theory. Americans' poor are kept in these vicious circles for ever so that rich American is safe and poor sloughs and this is a kind of capitalistic slavery management. For this illegal gains, the capitalists psychologically browbeat you the poor. This is modern grants management! In this process, the bankers earn for themselves so also for depositors by way of interest receipts. This process came in real estates in India. Banks started lending under equated installments basis (EMIs). Banks had perennial borrowers in pipeline uninterruptedly. By this process the cost prices get inflated due to interests payable over the loan amount over a period of time while costs of land can never accellerate though land depreciation is not there.

138/142 of Negotiable instrument is handy to him. Soon over night you poor bloke become 'bankrupt'. Actually the lenders generated the 'idea of consumption in borrowers' and if borrowers do not have money the rich will lend through credit cards and increase borrowals so that unnecessary consumption takes place. Unnecessary consumption means enormous wastes. Consumption economics encourages wastage of resources. People travel on tours even if they do not have money, in the name of great ideas of encouraging tourism as tourism enriches one's perspectives and the like, by borrowing moneys, right and left, from banks under tourism promotions or credits to be paid in easy installments. You expend. In fact it is luxury without real needs, and you in the process, just waste your own credit worth and at the very cost of savings. Infact you are left with nothing to fend yourself in rainy days, say during unemployments, or hospitalizations etc... a common phenomena today.

Under Construction (expected possession will be in 3 months)

COMB YOUR HAIR, SAVE THE WORLD Sanyo John Sunday Evening: Hypercity Food Court “Change your hairstyle dude. Typical oily haired Mallu lag rahe ho“, screamed my North Indian friend. The regional stereotypic talk did irritate me, but then the fact dawned on me. I had kept the same hairstyle for nearly four years. I was so much in ease with my oily combed back hair that I failed to recognize the new era of hair style changes that had crept up on the human race. Like Barack Obama says “Change is good”, or wait...Did Godrej say that…Ah who cares... Monday Evening: Barber Shop (Now called Hair Grooming Studio) You can wait at the bus stop, at a cinema hall, or even at a busy hotel, but waiting for a 'hair cut' isn't exactly the way I like to spend my evenings. It takes about 42 minutes and 25 seconds (Yes, was counting) for the rainbow hair colored stylist to invite me to the throne. Me: I need a change of hair style. H.S: Sure. That's why I am here, what style you got in mind? Now that's like asking an elephant on Ramayana, whenever I normally visit a barber, my exact opening dialogue is “Shorten my hair”. This is a new domain. Me: What are the new styles? What would suit me? The hair stylist strokes my hair like he is going to paint, and goes into deep thought. H.S: I can spike it up, that's the new trend, and Ta Ladies find it hot. Now “HOT” is a gross exaggeration. If your hair style made you hot, every Tomachan, Dickappan, and Harry Chandran would be one hair cut away from Bollywood. But then, you never argue with a barber, especially one who calls himself a hair stylist. Me: Ok, anything that looks good. Let's try spiking. The hairstylist seemed to invoke his innate artistic abilities and starts off on a journey through my hair. I close my eyes and pray that my 'ears' aren't sacrificed. 5 minutes later H.S: All done. I look into the mirror. I actually don't see much of a change, other than messier hair. Me: Can't you shorten my hair a little more? The hair stylist seems upset on my ignorance of his piece of art. H.S: No, this is the way it should look like. You won't look good with shorter hair. He wants to end the conversation, as he has another prey waiting. Me: Ok, Can I use the comb, the sides look so messy. H.S: No mister, now see, this is the new trend, hair should look messy, it's the 'just outta bed look'. The new ishtyle of youngsters. No way, I was going to win this battle, I pay the cutting fees and leave. This very informative discourse with the hair stylist made me realize one undeniable fact. THE END OF THE WORLD IS NEAR. Mankind has come full cycle. Don't believe me ??.. Look at the stats:Neanderthal man – Messy Unkempt hair, whole race wiped out of earth. 1st - 20th Century Man – Better hair grooming style, leaps ahead in science, technology, culture. 21st Century Man – Messy Unkempt hair, Future Unknown!!!... Now you readers, please be the change. COMB YOUR HAIR, SAVE THE WORLD.

of helping the common man, they organized janata durbars. In the same way that the Kings were surrounded by his chelas, in the present day janata durbars, the Minister is surrounded by Government officers from various departments completely paralyzing and puppetting the departments concerned. It can be seen that janata durbars are above the law and can subvert the law to suit their own purposes without following due process of law. Janata durbars have thus become the latest tool of the Legislature to overtake the Judiciary and the Executive. First they curbed the growth of the Judiciary by not funding it properly. Now they have taken over judicial functions by holding such superfast track courts and passing orders like a dictator. In a democracy, the job of the legislature is meant to make laws that the executive and the Judiciary have to implement and interpret respectively. But when a lawmaker gives direct orders to the executive to implement laws based on his interpretation of the law in contravention of the constitutional mores on separation of the legislature, judiciary and executive, then there is a serious issue of the legislature taking undue advantage of its lawmaker status and concentrating power in its hands at the expense of the executive and the judiciary. The janata durbar has no legality under the constitution of India in just the same way that Anna Hazare's Lokpal directives can have no legality under the Indian Constitution. How the

janata durbar operates in India should be an eye opener to the Judiciary and the Executive whose roles have been surreptitiously taken over by these all powerful Ministers whose intention is to subvert the executive and the judiciary and become all powerful. It is seen that the judiciary has still not realized the gravity of this threat of violation of judicial space as the janata durbars have tried to

create a good image for themselves without getting into controversies. However, since the subversion of the Judiciary is a very serious issue for the country, the Supreme Court needs to consider this as a writ petition and take immediate action to put an end to such practices that are undermining the core of the constitution of this country.

Fatty Liver disease has no affect on longevity Surprisingly, fatty liver disease that targets the obese or patients of heart disease poses no risk to one's longevity. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common condition tied with obesity and heart disease, undermining health and longevity. But a new study by researchers suggests the condition does not affect survival, the British Medical Journal reports. “Physicians have considered fatty liver disease a really worrisome risk factor for cardiovascular disease,” says Mariana Lazo, postdoctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. “Our data analysis shows this doesn't appear to be the case. We were surprised to say the least because we expected to learn by how much non-alcoholic fatty liver disease increased the risk of death…,”adds Lazo, who led the study. Using data from survey of 11,371 Americans between 1994 and 1998 who were followed for up to 18 years as part of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III), researchers checked liver enzyme levels and ultrasound tests for evidence of NAFLD.they ultimately looked at death rates associated with NAFLD. The participants were aged between 20 and 74 year during the survey years, according to a Hopkins statement. The Hopkins team found no increase in mortality among those with NAFLD, which was identified in 20 percent of the NHANES participants.
