Uncovering Triple Talaq

 

Talaq is not a gigantic issue to be brought centre stage and used for giving vent to the prejudices and biases of majority community against Muslims. It cannot also be the top most priority issue for empowerment and emancipation of Muslims. READ

Mera Desh: Aspirations & Anxieties

 

On achieving independence, our youth was ignited to fight against superstition. Today, the political leadership lights them to fight against reason and scientific temper and espouse tradition and blind faith as golden nationalist treasures.READ

My take: On Vishwajeet, Defection & Recontest

 

If the former MLA has committed impropriety and made politics murky, it is for the electorate to take a call. The judicial intervention does not appear to be a possibility. READ

Lifting the Aadhaar Card Curtain

 

The Aadhaar Act aims at voluntariness; the Finance Act makes it compulsory. It means there is no way to file the IT returns for a citizen unless the citizen is prepared to part with biometric data, fingerprints and iris scans for Aadhaar card. READ

'Destruction Conspiracy' of coal hub & dredging

 

This is to be viewed in conjunction with the business plans of MPT and corporate magnates importing and handling coal. It is evident that Goa’s rivers are to be modeled into speedy highways of coal transportation and anything else to be flagged as obstruction, says PRABHAKAR TIMBLE.READ

Judicial activism without concern

 

Though a votary of judicial activism, I hold the judgment on the liquor ban as insensitive and irresponsible judicial law-making. Any similar enactment by Parliament or any State legislature would have been declared as invalid and struck down by the Supreme Court invoking the virus of retrospective legislation.READ

The National Anthem Order: Constitutionalism v/s showy patriotism

 

There is no precedent or legal reason to support the judgement except the temptation of the judges to keep up with the ruling political Joneses. READ

Are you a sadist bureaucrat, Mr Vice Chancellor?

 

Should you be remembered as rigid, arrogant, inflexible and sadist bureaucrat? Or Should you stay in history as understanding and compassionate educationist? The choice is yours. Sir, it’s a choice which you have to make in your extended stay as a Vice-Chancellor which stands legalized by a special Ordinance issued by the government superseding the provisions of the Goa University Act.READ

Why I Am Not A Nationalist

 

I cannot paint Historians as western Dictators as men of steel Scientists as fools and jokers God-men and Babas as scientists Or a Muslim boy as Pakistani READ

When Justice is Delayed

 

The Indian judiciary should realize that unless the delays and pendency are brought within tolerable limits, it cannot accept the award of being considered as the only pillar in which the people can repose faith and confidenceREAD

Goans has no other Choice. Goans has to choose between AAP versus Congress/BJP.

They cannot throw all the 3 out of Goa. One will stay in Goa, either AAP or Congress/BJP.

If any Goan campaign against AAP means that Goan is supporting Congress/BJP unintentionally. Any Goan who don’t want to support AAP then just ignore it but don’t criticize it.

Campaigning against AAP will definitely benefit Congress/BJP.

Prabhakar, stop living in the past. Demonetisation is done & over with, remonetisation has taken over. The very people whom you refer to as the most affected have given the initiative a thumbs-up through the ballot. All, except a few sundry experts, have begrudgingly accepted it to be a good measure.

Your take on it's negatives are mostly based on assumptions & estimates. Your statement about it being a 'all-by-myself decision' too was in bad taste. Unless you are privy to the goings-on in the corridors of power, you should stop coming to such irresponsible conclusions. They not only cast aspersions on your credibility but also spread a lot of avoidable bad breath.

To expect the economy not to take a beating in the short run or to expect the citizens not to be inconvenienced by this sudden decision is being nothing but naive. In fact the suddenness of the decision is what made it hard-hitting.

Your & your clan's expectations from the BJP government in general, & Narendra Modi in particular have taught me the meaning of impatience, the intellectual variant of fast food.
