Legality of Hyperlinks

Legality of Hyperlinks

I, for one, while writing, picture the intended audience and the beneficiaries (wishful thinking). This article talks about the legality of hyperlinks, taking a leap from trademarks we jump to the next but a slightly tangled trajectory of Intellectual property Law. Copyrights are about ideas, they say ideas are bullet proof but with all my […]

Can one trust lease property to Another?

Can one trust lease property to Another?

None of the trusts is a public trust. (Every state has its own law for public trust) Both trusts have been validly created as per the s. 4, […]

Diplomatic Relations (Indo-Pak relations)
______________________________________________________
This post comes in light of deteriorating diplomatic relations between India and Pakistan. Both have dismissed multiple members on one another's diplomatic missions in their countries. Even though it seems to be more of a tit for tat diplomacy, this could result in great harm to diplomatic relations between the two countries. This is not only because of repo career diplomats take years to make in the governance and political system of the foreign country, but also due to legal consequences that flow. In this post, we try to bring to you basic international treaties that govern diplomatic relations between two countries. Perhaps these laws are followed by almost all the sovereign countries in the world and in 1992, UN general assembly, by a resolution, gave Vienna convention on diplomatic relations, 1961 status of customary international law. This would mean that in international context it is binding even without a nation state explicitly submitting to its jurisdiction. Diplomatic Relations (Indo-Pak relations)

The other side of feminist and Marxist debate_____________________________These pictures on the internet are rarely seen by a large chunk of our population.

The issue of UCC has popped up again in the public domain. Things are certainly different from how they looked in 1986. There is a Hindu right government in the centre, women’s rights movements have become more powerful and there is a general consensus to address archaic medieval practices like triple talaq. On the other hand under current political environment Muslim community feel its identity to be threatened more than ever before. Under such circumstances debate is likely to be fierce. God forbid any communal violence. Debate over the Uniform Civil Code

Trial court had dismissed his petition on the ground that the instances of cruelty pleaded and proved by him did not satisfy the standard of cruelty as per the provisions of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955.
However in its judgement, the bench referred to the settled legal position that “denial of sex to a spouse itself amounts to causing mental cruelty”. “The appeal being well founded deserves to be allowed,” it said, adding “we grant a decree of divorce in favor of the husband on the ground of cruelty by dissolving his marriage with the wife that had been solemnized”. “In view the foregoing discussion, we are of the considered view that the husband has fully established that he was subjected to mental cruelty by the wife by denying sex to him for a long period despite living under the same roof, without any justification and though she was not suffering from any physical disability,” a bench of Justices Pradeep Nandrajog and Pratibha Rani said.

The Cauvery Water Disputes --------------------------------------- The Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal (CWDT) was constituted by the Government of India on 2nd June 1990 to adjudicate the water dispute regarding inter-state river Cauvery and the river valley thereof. The Tribunal had also passed an Interim Order in June, 1991 and further Clarificatory Orders on the Interim Order in April, 1992 and December, 1995. The Cauvery Water Disputes Tribunal has submitted its reports and decision under Section 5 (2) of Inter-State River Water Disputes Act, 1956 to Government on 5th February, 2007. The party states and the Central Govt. have sought clarification and guidelines under Section 5(3) of the Act. The terms of the tribunal has been extended upto 2.11.08 as per provisions of ISRWD Act, 1956. Further, the party states have also filled SLPs in the Hon’ble Supreme Court against Cauvery tribunals report and Hon’ble Supreme Court has granted leave. The matter was last heard by Hon’ble Supreme Court on 29.7.08 and the Hon’ble court passed the order that the matter maybe listed before a three Judge bench in Nov, 2008.

The ideology behind us

First, they came for the Communists but I did not speak out because I was not a communist. Then, they came for the socialists and trade unionists but I did not speak out as I was neither. Then, they came for the Jews but I did not speak out as I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, but by then there was no one left out to speak for me.

–          Pastor Martin Neimoller

This pithy statement from Pastor Neimoller perhaps best captures the driving philosophy that Project Legal Renaissance embodies. We at PLR do not shun ideology; we embrace it. So much so that it has become a part of our work ethic. It is the very fabric of what PLR is, of who we are. And to you, the reader, we say only this- criticize us. Criticize us all you want. Denounce us publicly and run us down for the smallest of the errors in our thinking. Whatever it is you do, just do not stop thinking. Do not stop transcending. If ripping us to shreds serves that purpose, so be it, for this is the founding philosophy on which PLR stands- to give to the people enough information to make their own informed decision, to give to the people their right to dissent. To make them strong enough so that the next time they come for the communists or the trade unionists or the Jews or any one of us, we can see through their charade and rise up boldly against the unspeakable tyranny in its throes.

We take a stand, and we make no bones about it. Yes, we are prejudiced. Yes, we are biased. But also yes, we are genuine. We would not lull you into a false comfort like the humdrum of mainstream media does. We would not promise you that things are looking up when they in fact are not. We will give you the brutal truth whether you have the stomach for it or not. We know this approach of ours would earn us enough enemies, more detractors than we can possibly imagine. But to us, all of the drawbacks will be overridden by the impact that we believe we will make in the masses. Unlike other “neutral”, “non-biased” coverage, we are not scared of asserting our opinion in face of all opposition. We are who we are, and we would never, ever speak under our breath. And we want you, the new and discombobulated initiate on the path to self-realization and discovery to embrace this idea as well, an idea which might seem abhorrent, repulsive but at the same time brilliant and scintillating to you.

So there you are friend, embarking on a journey of discovery and knowledge that is perhaps more intimidating for us than it is for you. However, worry not. We believe in you, and would like you to believe in us. Together, we (hopefully) would be able to make sense of it all. To make better life for us and our brethren in a world defined by indefiniteness and ruled by chaos. Welcome aboard!
