People Power Versus Simultaneous Elections

In view of the revival of the controversial issue of “one nation, one election”, I reproduce below an analysis which I penned when the Narendra Modi government raised the issue. Five years later, the essay is perhaps more relevant today than when it was first written.

Revisiting Article 370: When the BJP had it right

In view of the historic case being argued before the Supreme Court on the legality of the abrogation of Article 370, I reproduce below an essay on the genesis of this bond of faith between India and the people of Jammu and Kashmir in the historical perspective of the times and circumstances in which the Article was enacted. This piece was published almost a month before the abolition of the Article on August 5, 2019.

When the court speaks loud and clear

In the recent past, several eminent, reformist political thinkers have been urging the judiciary to call out the Constitutional sins of the executive branch of the government. Prominent among them is Padma Bhushan and Magsaysay awardee Arun Shourie. Last month, in a well-publicised TV interview, this intrepid scholar-journalist-politician called upon the Supreme Court “to behave as if it’s at war in defence of the Constitution”.

Diversity is the key

There is a rainbow on the cover of this issue of India Legal. When our editorial team sat to discuss how best to illustrate the theme of our latest cover story, we unanimously invoked the rainbow—the Indradhanush. Why? Because nature in no other form depicts its “vibgyor” colours more emphatically than in the vibrant arc that cuts a swathe across the skies after a rain.

He who pays the piper…

This week’s cover story is part of our continuing reportage on a subject that is perhaps the most explosive constitutional showdown since the Founding Fathers, in 1950, framed the principles, laws, rules and regulations within whose framework the institutions of the newly-founded Indian Republic are designed and meant to function.

Giving Birth to a Nation

This issue of India Legal is dedicated to the nation’s most celebrated and hallowed secular text that is, in its evangelical message, as powerful as any holy book: The Indian Constitution.

Remembering Dignity

December 10th should be considered, along with all major religious landmark events like Diwali, Xmas, Eid, Gurpurab, Hanukkah, a day of reflection and the celebration of the power of the human spirit.
