The Supreme Court ruled that a married Hindu woman cannot adopt a child even with the consent of her husband. According to Hindu Adoption Maintenance Act (HAMA) 1956. Child adoption specialists feel that the apex court can recomend this case to call upon the government to amend the antiquated law.
In a case of Brajendra Singh versus State of M.P. & Another, the Supreme Court refused to recognise the right of an ‘adopted’ son of a woman to her property as her husband had not sought the adoption. This despite the fact that she had been living separately from her husband for decades.
Section 8(C) of HAMA which states that any female Hindu “who is not married, or if married, whose marriage has been dissolved or whose husband is dead or has completely and finally renounced the world or has ceased to be a Hindu or has been declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be of unsound mind, has the capacity to take a son or daughter in adoption.” HAMA is applicable to Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs. “Under the law, an adoptive mother is not a joint petitioner, but only a consenting party. This reflects an obvious gender bias,” says Dr Nilima Mehta, chairperson, Child Welfare Committee (CWC), Maharashtra.
Pampering and fostering Government
In most countries the greedy political leaders are root cause for countries turmoil and shakeable ground for unfavourable incidents. They give priority in their party’s growth and progress which sometime stake country’s sovereignty, solidarity and harmony. A country should tend equality among all it’s people irrespective of any identity as race, religion, political, social and etc.. Before Law and Judgement, everyone is equal. Partiality encourages mistrust, misunderstanding and commotion.
In India, because of vote bank the government always is blind for certain section of people. This partiality returns as boomerang.

SC convicts a boy for sex with 16-yr-old girlfriend. A trial court in Patiala convicted Rakesh Kumar and sentenced him to seven years' imprisonment, despite the girl confessing that she had sex as she was in love with him. The girl being a minor, her consent to sex did not help mitigate the boy's offence. For, law terms sex with a minor, with or without her consent, as rape. the girl's father. accused him of kidnapping and raping his minor daughter and pleaded for leniency, the Supreme Court sentenced Rakesh Kumar three years behind bars. The main ground for leniency, as mentioned in the high court judgment, was the rural background of the boy.
The Punjab and Haryana high court, which said it would be harsh to send the boy behind bars, long after the incident, for seven years just because two youngsters in love had sex. This story shows how the Judiciary in India performs . The subject under discussion, it makes me think our law and order and judiciary system is not mature and strong, physically after twelve a girl is mature to conceive, this signal she gets it from her own body.I may suggest thatour law makers should look into the matter and give our children a natural feeling for life. I think to deter a rapist law should be revised. You must guard and prevent crime but you must not create problem to others in the name / guise of guard.
On August 2, 2008 in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister, the Chief Justice recommended the impeachment of judge Soumitra Sen of Calcutta High Court.
Judge Sen is accused of having been involved in financial misappropriation before he was appointed as a judge. It is reported that in 1984 while judge Sen was practicing as a lawyer he was appointed as the receiver in a dispute concerning the Steel Authority of India. It is alleged that in the capacity of the receiver he misappropriated a sum of INR 2,500,000 [USD 59523], which judge Sen reportedly paid back on orders from the court. Later, he was appointed a judge at the Calcutta High Court in 2003.
A judge accused of corruption facing impeachment, a process by which a sitting judge could be removed from service in India. A court of law, a public office demands scrupulous impartiality and untainted personality.
There are similar allegations against some judges in India. But not a single judicial officer was impeached so far. The only exception was the case of judge V. Ramaswami who faced impeachment in 1991, an attempt that failed due to the absence of a political consensus. It is expected that history will not be repeated. If it is repeated it would be a shame upon the Indian judiciary and its accountability.
JUDGES IN PROVIDENT FUND SCAM ?
NEW DELHI: Faced with accusations having the potential to unhinge the traditional public perception of the judiciary’s clean image, the SC on Monday decided to examine the possible mode of probe into the Rs 23 crore illegal PF withdrawal scam allegedly involving 23 judges, including some from the HCs and one from the apex court.
The difficult question on the mode of probe was posed by a petitioner, who is the chairman of Advocates Welfare Trust and Bar Association of Ghaziabad — the place where the scam took place — even as CJI K G Balakrishnan had shown faith in the integrity of the judges by asking the UP police, which is probing the scam, to send questionnaires to the judges, whose names allegedly figured in the scam.

The intellectual people are trying to understand freedom of expression
First person : All artists have his freedom of expression.
But Artist ( all creative persons) can not hurt the sentiment of common people.
Second person :Look! on the back ground of the painting Hussein has drawn India’s map, do you think it is our Indian map? Because he is an artist? Never. Its his expression. Right or wrong. We have our Indian map. When we need it we shall never come to hussain’s map. If you find incorrect thing you just ignore it. I see a nude lying figure, a silhouette of a sitting man on the right and on the left a boat. What does it mean?
Third Person :All artist speak mostly about his own life through their own works. They take things from real life and imagination; they completely depend on their own life experience also. India is his motherland also. The way M F Hussein had seen his mother the same way he has portrayed his motherland, perhaps he did not see better or worse than this picture. This painting explains the whole life of hussein : his growing up, knowledge, experience, his race, religion, his home etc. everything. So his people are not protesting what he has done why you are involving with his credit? He loves to portray his mother in nude among multitudes it’s his taste and culture. We may enjoy his crazyness. Its art! Maybe you will find your goddess name there, still, it is his . So, better ignore and don’t look back…
Different religious fanatics are on the rise. After Kandhmal, it is the turn of Christians in Karnataka to face the ire of right-wing Hindu mobs.
Suspected Bajrang Dal activists vandalized seven churches and a house in Mangalore, Udupi and Chikmagalur districts on Sunday. In Dakshina Kannada district, the activists targeted the Adoration Monastery just off the Milagres Church on Falnir Road. The group barged into the prayer hall and damaged the tabernacle, where the holy Eucharist is kept. They damaged windowpanes, furniture as well the crucifix. Another group attempted to vandalise another prayer hall in Kankanady.
The Christians gathered in large numbers in front of the Milagres Hall to protest against the series of attacks. The protesters and the police resulted in violence. Protesters hurled stones at the police who lathicharged them in return. Several vehicles were damaged.
Police in the southern Indian state of Karnataka have arrested over 60 people in connection with attacks on churches and clergymen over the weekend.
Last month, anti-Christian violence in the eastern Orissa state led to the deaths of at least 20 people
Concerned over the prospects of an anti-Christian campaign spreading to Karnataka soon after attacks on minorities in Orissa, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh drew the attention of chief minister B S Yedyurappa to reports of such incidents earlier in the day. The Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has described the violence in Orissa as a "national disgrace".

Sept. 13 -- Five bombs ripped through several crowded markets in the span of 25 minutes Saturday in the Indian capital, killing at least 22 people and injuring more than 90. followed by another explosion five minutes later outside Gopal Dass Bhawan near Metro Rail Station on Barakhamba road
The bodies of the victims have been kept at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital while the injured are being treated at various hospitals including Lady Hardinge, Safdarjung, Jasaram and Gangaram. More than 200 people have been killed in terrorist attacks in the country over the past year by bombs placed on bicycles, kept under theater seats and near markets
"Whoever has done this, they are enemies of humanity and enemies of India," said Home Affairs Minister Shivraj Patil, who appealed for calm. "They want to destroy peace in our society. . . . We will take the toughest action against them."Patil also announced that the Centre would give Rs one lakh as compensation to the families of those killed.
"The fact that the blasts took place in crowded markets on a Saturday indicates the evil intention of the culprits to cause maximum casualties and damage," said Home Minister Shivraj Patil.
Mayor Arti Mehra said: "It's a very cowardly act of violence. They want to break the spirit of Delhi.
"They have tried this in other places before and they have not succeeded and they will not succeed here. They will not scare us."
The e-mail sent by ‘Arbi Hind’ from the email-id email@example.com, claimed that 9 blasts would rock the capital that would stop the pulse of the country. The security agencies are investigating the source of email. A little-known group, the Indian Mujahideen, asserted responsibility for the attack in an e-mail sent to several media offices. "Within five minutes from now . . . this time with the Message of Death, dreadfully terrorizing you for your sins," the e-mail said. "And thus our promise will be fulfilled, Inshallah." The message also challenged security agencies, saying, "Do whatever you want and stop us if you can." India's television network NDTV quoted the email as saying, "In the name of Allah, the Indian Mujahedeen has struck back again." The email apparently originated from Mumbai.The e-mail, which police have traced to a Mumbai suburb, warned that there would be nine blasts in the city. Bomb disposal teams defused four bombs planted in various parts of downtown. The Indian Mujahideen sent similar e-mails to news organizations and police departments ahead of bombings in the cities of Jaipur, where more than 83 people were killed in May, and Ahmedabad, where 56 people were killed in July.
Many officials say a group called the Students Islamic Movement of India, which was banned in 2001, is behind much of the violence. Some say the Indian Mujahideen is another name for the group.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Police has ruled out the use of RDX in the bomb explosions. Karnal Singh, Joint Commissioner of Police (Special Cell), said, “No RDX was used in the bombs”.
Ten days ago, Narendra Modi, the chief minister of Gujarat state, where Ahmedabad is located, accused the national government of appeasing Muslims by refusing to pass a tougher law to combat terrorism.
"I experience helplessness without an anti-terrorism law," Modi, from the right-leaning Bharatiya Janata Party, said at a news conference in New Delhi.
"A strict law can prevent sons of good families from venturing into violence. During interrogation sessions with the suspects, we have learnt that the Indian Mujahideen has set up networks in nine Indian states. That is a grave danger," Modi said.
A witness to one of the blasts Saturday said the government lacks the will to punish the guilty. "The government is too soft on terrorists," O.P. Shardam, a local official, told reporters at one of the bomb sites. "They are not in control. People keep losing lives and shedding tears. And the government keeps issuing statements."
Two explosions each occurred in Connaught Place and Greater Kailash and one in Gaffar Market in the space of about half an hour.
Another unexploded bomb was reportedly found at the India Gate monument, popular with visitors and families. It had been mixed with shrapnels (ball bearings) to cause maximum damage. Most of them were placed in a dust bin and were set off by timers," said a senior police officer.bombs were plotted in black polethins, Indian Mujahideen claims responsibility Preliminary examination says low-intensity ammonium nitrate tied to integrated circuit used An explosive expert with one of the bomb disposal units said the devices appeared to have been packed with steel ball bearings and nuts and bolts "to cause maximum harm".
The injured were rushed to AIIMS and Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.
Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani strongly condemned Saturday's blasts, expressing their shock and grief over "the loss of precious human lives," according to the state-run Associated Press of Pakistan.
Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari yesterday condemned the blasts and expressed solidarity with India.
"The people and the government of Pakistan share the pain of the victims and bereaved families," said a statement released by the Foreign Ministry.
President Pratibha Patil, Prime MinisterManmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi, president of the ruling Congress party, all condemned the attacks.
``The president has condemned the serial blasts and condoled the loss of lives in this mindless act of violence,'' said an e- mailed release from the president's office.
U.S. Ambassador to India David C. Mulford extended his government's sympathies to the victims and their families.
``There is no justification for the vicious murder of innocent people,'' Mulford said in an e-mailed release. ``The U.S. stands shoulder-to-shoulder with India in the fight against terror.''
Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi condemned the blasts, in a statement made to the CNN-IBN television channel.
India has already lost an estimated 70,000 lives to terrorism, with little success in investigating or prosecuting most previous terrorist attacks.
The Indian Mujahideen, suspected to be a shadow amalgam of the banned Simi and the terror outfit Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, claimed responsibility for the blasts through an e-mail sent to some media organisations around the time the blasts took place.
“Eye for an eye,” said the document, with the image of two men — including a victim of the 2002 Gujarat riots. It threatened: “The dust will never settle down.
“Our intense, accurate and successive attacks like the one you will see exactly five minutes from now, Inshallah, will continue to punish you even before your earlier wounds have healed,” said the e-mail, sent shortly before the explosions.
Investigators tracked the e-mail to an Internet Protocol address registered in the name of Messrs Kamran Power Control Private Limited in Chembur, Mumbai. There was no response when HT tried to call the number for Kamran Power and the phone line had been connected to a fax.
It is unclear whether the company has any link to the explosions, and investigators have not ruled out the possibility of a hacked Wi-Fi connection being used to send the e-mail, as it was done after the Ahmedabad blasts in July.
Sources said the e-mail ID, firstname.lastname@example.org, used to send the mail was created on Saturday itself, and that the person who finally sent the e-mail using the ID had received the mail from someone else on Saturday afternoon.
Delhi Police tonight set up a helpline to provide information about the blast victims. The number is 011-23490312.

When political parties call a strike, they force and close down all commercial and non commercial establishments it’s like a banana peel. The political leaders gauge and enjoy the strength of their party, the opponent party trips over that and common people suffer a lot, many hundred thousand day wage earners then go on starvation.
Its strange fact that WestBengal is losing its charm of work culture and thwarting its own economical growth and progress. The highest justice system, law and order has failed to deter this abominable practice, a number of contempt cases were brought against many political leaders and ministers. But no result. Instead of development and progress of the state it seems the politicians prefer their own party activities and exercising power of their organization. That is why when people of west Bengal are in dire crisis the political parties play the chess of politics. Their indifference push us more in helpless state.

We have witnessed in olympic game how China muzzles free expression
for further reading click http://newsfreedomofexpression.blogspot.com/
Alas! They are capable of pulling two opposite poles: closing a factory for working class and fostering a factory for capitalists benefit. Ultimately we see we are where we were. And we are drowning in dark desperation.
The followers of Karl Marx are rewriting new 'Das Kapital' and "The Communist Manifesto" Surely its a happy news!
Why Mills, factories and industries are closing and locked? who answers? who is responsible for 3 decades?
I think people know the answer. People have given up taking the opium of religion but started taking the opium of politics that is why they can not react instantly.
The World outside is watching: NANDIGRAM & OTHERS
Very sorry! I don’t expect such situation in Nandigram. Those are involved should be punished. The ruling party and administration are acting like Dhritarastra of great epic Mahabharat fame who was blind enough to see his son’s felonies, ..
.....After the first rounds were fired, eyewitnesses state that as the protestors fled, the assailants chased them down the road. Survivors spoken to report seeing the brutal murders, including the beheading of a child. Our observers, who entered the village as late as 17 March, say that the streets had remnants of human blood on them for two kilometres from the site of the initial confrontation. Locals claim that 100 to 150 people were killed and party cadres were seen placing dead bodies into the back of lorries. The police suggest that 14 people were killed. Official figures differ greatly from what we gathered from the survivors, prompting suspicion amongst our observers that either party could be wildly exaggerating….
the number of rounds found in the area with also a variety of bullet types. Body parts have been unearthed, most notably the charred remains of a body in the Sonachura area. Meanwhile many families report missing relatives; some report seeing their family members falling to the police bullets. An arms cache with 800 live rounds belonging to CPI(M) members was also found in a brick kiln. Whilst the confrontation occurred, party cadres cordoned off the area to prevent press and supporters of the villagers into the area for quite some time before allowing entry. …
incidences of beatings and sexually harassment including that of a 55-year-old woman, who on all accounts was not a threat to 'law and order' or to practically anything or anyone. So traumatised was she that her relatives had to recount her tale for her. "She had fallen down on the spot; bahini (party cadres) people beat her badly, later because they did not prefer raping her, they put a stick in her genitals and mutilated them.".......
This news from one account , there are more vivid description of human killings. I think it is the time the ruling government should take a retirement. In comparison with other states in India we are living in worse condition.
Hijab and women in Islam
"A woman is like a private part. When she goes out the devil casts a glance at her"
Al-Hadis, trans. Al-Haj Maulana Fazlul Karim, vol. 2, p. 692, from Mishkat al-Masabih, by Waliuddin Abu Abdullah Mahmud Tabrizi
This women thinks she is 100% vagina.
every square inch of my body is private part, every square inch of it can make you horny. Therefore my entire body is an 'awrat, (lit. pudendum, genital) and I am a sex object from head to toe. People cover their private parts. This woman thinks her entire body is private part.
To them both are embarrassing and should be covered. Thinking with their genitals these ambulant vaginas are fighting for the right to be humiliated, beaten and treated as sex objects.

Do we ask ourselves ‘why?’ when we are chained /feel helpless /meet crisis and become slave of someone or some habit or some traditional custom? In most cases, we don’t.
For, I think, there are more illiterate and ignorant people than literate and socially conscious people. That is why most people, who are illiterate become a victim of social injustice and fall prey for superstitions. They cannot think of better, never protest, accept or grant anything comes before blindly without giving it a speculation. Though painful, harmful, meaningless still they show their obedience to their customary beliefs. They do it with a simple good faith that ‘its demand of god, or a condition to be with god’. They loose their voice; they act like they are in a trance.
People who are literate they can read papers and books but how many among them can understand the content and the message in it and subsequently use it in practical life. Very few. Therefore, they cannot use the knowledge in their practical life.
I have seen those socially conscious can find a way when they are in trouble. Society, always are changing, in all religious, socio-economic and political sphere of life. We do not follow the rules and custom that were in use 5000 years ago, but we should be mindful to a law--, a new rule, that has been passed a few minutes ago , violation of which can take you in jail. The constitution of a Country (civilized country) is supreme power to it’s nation, so you can not do things against it's law, be it a religious, economical, political or any undefined nature. The law of the country always on guard. But we people are often motivated, those are representatives of a government are human, and their nature necessarily fallible, sometimes being influenced, sometimes they being are ignorant.
You cannot follow religious doctrines if your country's law prevents it. Religion, in no countries, is above the supreme rules of Constitution of that country. I have seen and read many religious scriptures. And I have come to this conclusion that religious scriptures were written when people were ignorant, no communication were possible between people live in geographical different parts of this globe, and was basically helpless and frustrated against the Nature, its courses and phenomenon. Besides, people are moved by their own faith, but their faith mostly seated on wrong tracts and assumption, it has no concrete base, if thing has no strong foundation/ ground then it would surely collapse/ break. We are not much aware of our faith, we do not necessarily give a conscious foundation to our faith or belief; what we hear, what we see, we less bother about it’s genuine truth. But we take it for granted; this is what our basis of faith. In thousand years ago, what was written for the immediate society and nation, by monarchs or religious teachers cannot be suitable for today’s generation. So, simply discard it. And god never associates with wrong and unjust thing, so, no fear. Our concept of God is always with right things! He is just.
Our lives today are dictated by electronic gadgets, computer and different types of media, we are living in a age where science, reasoning/ logic and information has occupied most of the space. We can see things more transparent than we used to see thousands years ago. If you take religious law books or the parts where a law is mentioned, or you want to follow certain custom mentioned in the books you should not follow, because the law of your country’s constitution has forbidden long ago. If you do so you may necessarily challenge your country’s supreme law. Therefore you will be put behind the bar or wall of the jail. If your country ignore you, forgive you the neighbouring country will not forgive or ignore you. So, just avoid what is harmful to present society.
And we can assume and be sure that what is allowed by the civilized society we must follow. We must not incline to prejudices /superstitions /unchecked / and preconceptions that are harmful to society.
We become orthodox/ headstrong/ irrational / because we are in fear of loss. We are weak and frustrated, we do not know proper way to satisfy our need and demand, we nurture our wrong founded faith that cannot help. I have noticed most businessman /traders are more inclined to god and religion and traditional customs who want more success in their business/ or when they face a challenge /tension with their business. They have less time to analysis or speculate their demand / failure / or tension concerning their business. All they want or believe is a middleman or a priest or religious body who can bribe god and bring their desired result. In their real life they never are least religious and pious. On the contrary, you will find them they are least bothered with scriptures and law. They understand only money and their saviour is also money.
If you have eyes to observe the religious leaders and their allies like priests, and the serviceman of temple /church/ mosque, you would find most of them are selfish, morally corrupted, opportunists, and trespassers of religious law and country’s law. Most of them are a failure in struggling life they have taken their path to religion as a means of survival. They create their own law in the name of god and religion to satisfy their desire. In plain, they are sinners according to their respective scriptures. Yes, there are good people and mission also there who serve nation generously /philanthropically in more practical way, in war ravaged, riot torn places, in flood and drought areas, and in natural calamities and catastrophes, we owe them a lot. They never show you their religious identity. They serve you just you are a human being and in distress.
One thing, if your thoughts and knowledge are transparent and clear, you will be able to know you and aware of you. And on top of that if you are aware of your rights and ability you can cross all hurdle races in life demands. You will not belittle another human being, you will show compassion to another human being in distress. You will know or judge what is right and wrong. You will free yourself from the bondage you are in.
So, in our education system our focal point should be on how we can free ourselves from old concepts /prejudices/ superstitions that are harmful. And understanding of society in relation of science and rational thoughts.
If I can not love and respect you simply it means there is some problem in me not approving you. We should check them with ‘why’. We may not show love and respect to everyone due to many social reasons and status but I can keep myself out from all sorts of evil design and intentions.
Those people are free from superstition/ old traditional belief and are rational should take care of others who might follow traditional customs blindly. It is a way of broadening ones’ freer state and space also for his interest.
I have seen knowledge and information can make people free from his/her old state of life. It gives joy of freedom and a delight of mind. The way we wash our clothes and iron it is the same way you have to treat your belief and trust. Always check with new ideas, knowledge and information. And sharing your view, knowledge and information with someone also are cheering. Don’t be discouraged when your ideas are discarded by new progressive thoughts because you have been introduced with the facts you did not know before. You have learnt new knowledge and added it to your experience. You can check your new knowledge with different communities, lets see how they react!
Many religious and traditional thought and cult are very harmful and dangerous to a progressive society in a developing country. As example, genital mutilation /circumcision, inflicting cut / wounds on children, influencing people with wrong human degradation, .. there are a lot. Killing and inflicting harm in the name of god and religion is abominable crime. Civil society of a country should check them with strong law and punishment.
It is a right time for every religious people to check their stand whether they would follow old harmful practices and challenge civilized laws of the nation.
In Internet, websites, you will find many resource centers where you can find many shocking news, of human degradation, at the same time you will learn also what is right and wrong.
A few days ago, while browsing, I came to halt and with great shock …. You may check them it here and now:
Two words 'awrat’, or ‘zaifeh’ ? two different thoughts, two different ways of utility two different societies.
