India's Judicial "Pendency"

Image result for stupid Indian judiciary

A whopping 33 million cases are pending across various courts in India. The statistics proves more grim when we realize more than half of them are pending for more than 2 years & over 3.7 million cases (around 11%) are awaiting conclusion for more than 10 years. Considering an involvement of minimum of 2-3 persons per case, justice is delayed OR denied indefinitely to over 50 million peoples of India. What is the ultimate use, if justice is given to someone once the essence of his / her life is over? What's the use, if someone is acquitted or accused after twiddling one's thumb for years together? If this situation continues, our country will have 15 crores pending cases by end 2040. Seems there is a systematic problem with India's judiciary.  Why there is a judicial pendency in India?

As per me, there are many reasons to it;

1) Increasing criminal cases: We are one of the leaders as far as crimes are concerned. Our country has also earned the dubious distinction of being the country where maximum numbers of murders takes place in the world. In numbers, it is double the figures in US. Another disturbing aspect is that the largest litigant in our country is our government itself, who is responsible for nearly half the pending cases. Many of them are actually cases of one department of the government suing another, leaving the decision-making to the courts. In other words, both our government & criminals are striving towards keeping judiciary overburdened & stretched. 

2) Less number of judges: India has one of the world's lowest ratios of judges to population in the world with only 13 judges for every million people, compared with 50 in developed nations. This leads to increased number of adjournments & finally results in cases piling up. Even though debates are going on for decades about filling the shortages of Judges, still our judiciary is running with skeleton crew. The laxity & levity approach shown by various governments clearly indicates how serious they are when it comes to "providing justice to citizens". It also exposes our various governments' failures to come up with judicial reforms. 

3) Money & muscle power takes priority away: It is surprising to note most of the high profile cases were  attended & verdicts are given so fast whereas the common citizens are ignored forever. The entire attention is diverted to cases where VIP's are involved. One side, common man is pleading for justice whereas on the other side, our judiciary is working hard to support VIP criminals. Indian courts are turning out to be a safe heaven for big criminals. Special Benches have been called to assist them. Nothing but a subject of ridicule. All this supports the fact system cares only affluent class & common man as always gets ignored. It's high time judiciary must be released from money power & political interference. 

4) Too much of holidays: I have checked the Indian Supreme Court's calendar & found they are 134 holidays out of 365 possible days. This includes a summer vacation of 6-7 weeks every year!!!. Of course, the British started this concept but the unanswered question is "why still we have to follow the colonial practice without justifiable reasons". Doesn't it look clumsy to see our judiciary most of the time in hibernation mode, that too in a country, where criminals and dacoits working overtime. I do appreciate the fact that Judges requires some relaxation from the monotonous job they are carrying out. But as the same time as a responsible citizen, I do agree even minute measures can accelerate the disposal of backlogs.  If the existing judges can work an extra hour/day, 15 to 20 % of pendency can be easily resolved. This extra one hour of yours can give justice to 10 million more people. Please understand the essence of constitution in it's right spirit can be delivered, only if we are alert all the time.

Above all parameters clearly show that the entire judiciary system in India needs a complete overhaul so that constitutional mandate of equality before law is made meaningful.

Let's together work towards strengthening our judiciary.

Cau"Very Shame"

Cau"Very  Shame"

The Cauvery river dispute has raised its head again & has been raging since Sep 5. As a result, many people are fueling violence at various locations of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. India’s garden city turned out to be a city of Commotion & vandalism. Curfew was imposed in parts of Bangalore & city came to a standstill. Tamils have been attacked in Bangalore & Kannadigas assaulted in Chennai. Even though the interest of farmers, drought & famine were cited as main reasons, issue reached to a monstrous form due to poor systems & political inability. The situation, I believe is running out of political solution as of now.

What is the actual issue?

Issue is nothing but a river known as Cauveri, which is 809 km’s long.  The 44000 Sq.km of her basin area (BA), were occupied @ 54% & 42% by TN & Karnataka respectively. (Balance with Kerala & Puducherry). The bone of contention is the drought area in the basin. Here Karnataka has 63% share while TN contributes 37%. Taking all these parameters in to consideration, tribunal verdict (2007) sanctions 58% of water to TN & 37% to Karnataka. While TN was okay with the verdict, Karnataka contends that it does not receive its due share. In short, Karnataka requires more water while TN doesn’t agree to this. To support this, TN claims about 12000 Sq. km land has been already developed in the basin area & are heavily depending on the existing pattern of usage. Any change in the system, it says will affect the livelihood of millions of farmers in the state. The end result: the dispute, which is more than 125 years old, is still ON.

We have our own ways of aggravating the issues:

Who can stop us, if we declare ourselves insane? Who can stop us, if we decide to value pain & pleasure over right & wrong?  Who can stop us if we have a problem for all the solutions. Everyone is on an encashing mode. Channels eyeing TRP ratings, Politicians after popularity stunt & for anti-social elements, it's celebration time.  Both the states are still on the edge as a slightest spark can even ignite to a sporadic violence. In short, a state is declaring war against the other over water !!,   All these atrocities are happening in a country, where we were talking about Rivers Connect & festivals connect. We damage national properties....we burn our neighbors alive.....still we  boastfully claim “united we stand”.

Conclusion:

It is difficult to understand who actually the sufferer is & who is gaining mileage out of it. One thing is clear….the loser is human MORALITY & our NATION.  To die with dignity, what we requires is few drops of water….Doesn’t matter whether it comes from Cauvery, Krishna or Ganga. What requires is compassion, which only humanity can provide. .

What's Stopping you Women?

Image result for women great

“I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men. They are far superior and always have been” William Golding

Why feeling inferior?

If woman is determined to rise, no power on this planet can stop that force.  Nature has given you so much. Power to create….Power to nurture…. Power to transform. What you need is.... embrace it. You have got the capabilities to transform lives.  You have got the magical Midas touch to make anything & everything larger. You make home out of house, sumptuous repast out of groceries & whole heart out of a simple smile.  You are capable of handling family & profession together & what is more commendable is you make best out of both worlds.  Women outnumber men in academics…In Bachelor’s degree, you are 23% ahead of men & when it comes to Master’s, you are ahead by 30%.  When it comes to sports, it is 2 among you, which helped India avoid a potentially embarrassing Olympic blackout. You are much more expressive than men. You are multi-fold caring than men.

Then what’s pulling you back?

Is it insecurity?  As per me, insecurity should be rated as an unfortunate personality trait. Never be so serious about that.  The fact is "many a times you forget to reckon your prowess". Please understand power is something you have to grab & never expect someone to drop-ship for you. 

Having family still a career barrier for women? A woman to have 2 children & raise them is a full time job. Across world, no consultant ever tried this. I am sure no one will ever...This is simply because you only can do that. You are manufacturing a next generation of people. How the world will be tomorrow will be determined by what kind of mothers one has today. In short, you are moulding sensible & responsible citizens. That’s why; a woman who cannot become a leader is a leader itself, because she produces the leaders for the future. 

How to correct it?

Failure happens when you compete for attention. Never do that. You may feel life as intimidating. Never bother about it. Try to learn when to walk away. Create your reality. But dare to live your life. Few tips are;

Don’t be a woman that needs a man…. Be a woman a man needs.
Never be an object, always be a subject.
Avoid too much of judging & gossiping.
Never ever live with worry & doubt.
Go away from your subconscious awareness on impending doom.
Settle for less....

It’s up to you to decide whether all these are feasible or Utopian. 

Piece of advice for men:

All the women in the world has a dark side as well. If provided with a crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit. So never mess around with a woman. Those who think women are not leaders are certainly not married. You have 2 choices… accept them as leaders or get married soon. 

I am sure, a woman driver at the helm of Formula 1 OR a female runner challenging Usain Bolt is not that far away....

All the very best....

Be a Partner to the Progress of this Nation

Image result for india progress

Dear Friends, there is a free partnership job available for everyone in this country. The job, which I feel is the superlative of all,  is awaiting consent from each one of you. Let's get in to the details....

Name of the Organization:   INDIA
Type of job:                           To become a partner in the progress of this Nation.

Job responsibility:  Contribute immensely wherever you can & ensure India prosper.
Remuneration:        Will be paid  every moment  but In the form of  RESPECT only.  
Goal includes:         Exterminate all those who creates obstructions, whoever it may be.

Major Key Responsibility Area's re

     I.   Say "NO" to food wastage: How many of us  have attempted to starve for more than 48 hours. I am sure none. When we have tried anything & everything under the Sun, why haven't we tried this? The answer is very simple because all of us know "how unbearable it will be". From this point… imagine about 270 million Indian’s, who go hungry daily. Nothing works out when you are hungry. How can we expect this 270 millions to contribute for our nation's growth?  It won’t be exaggerating if I mention "our nation still have people who suppress their hungers by eating Rats & even human waste" 
      Image result for india food wastage 
    These poor people are starving not because India doesn't have resources but due to our extravaganza. Our country tops the global food wastage's list while it's 25% population still in starving mode. Just look at the absurdity of the situation. 

    When we showcase our money power & perform this wastage, have we ever thought, it is our nation’s resources, which we are wasting?  Money may belongs to us, but the resources are of this nation. The entire 1.27 billion people have equal rights to it. Who gave us the permission to snatch these rightful resources from these 270 million people? Is it because, they won’t retaliate. Doesn’t it look awkward?     Do we run out of intellect. In short, our country has yet another 1 Billion brains, which hardly works because of  over eating & ignorance . 

     II.  Help Govt. to bring Black Money Back:   Recently a  report by wiki leaks attracted my attention. Report confirms a cumulative deposit of 15 lac crores owned by top 30 Indian account holders at various Swiss banks. Needless to mention almost all of them are either politicians or ably supported by politicians. An average Indian, paying all sorts of taxes, struggling day & night to save 100 rupees a day, has got all the rights to know what extra ordinary activity helped these traitors to accumulate this wealth. 
      
     III.  Can all of us take few pledges: 


1.  We feed / support  at least one needy  person a day 
2.  Say NO to food wastage  no matter at home or hotel. For those, who still  wants to  show           the money power.... kindly get it packed & deliver to the needy as fresh as you can
3.  Let's together say  NO to "Bribe & Tax evasion"     
     4.  Kindly extend all possible support to the GOVT. in it's endeavor to bring this stacked                  black money back to India
    
     Buying words from our PM’s official site:  "Together we will script a glorious future for a strong, developed & inclusive India" 
    
     Be an INDIAN today …… & always

     Jai Hind.......Anil Panicker
