Bid Adieu to All Obsolete Laws - Hemant Kumar
It is highly laudable on the part of the incumbent Modi dispensation for deciding to repeal all archaic laws which continue to remain in our statute-book notwithstanding the fact that over the years they have outlived their utility. There cannot be any second opinion regarding bidding adieu to all those antiquated legislations which are otiose in contemporary era and of course, such a weeding out process ought not to be a one-off exercise but rather a continuing one as per the prevailing circumstances.

   Optimal Copyright Protection for Media and Bollywood Industry - Mr. Trilochan Verma

Bollywood!! The industry made on dreams; full of people who dream. It is those ambitious and optimistic people who pack their bags and go to this industry to achieve…achieve something big. There was a time in this same Bollywood when once in 1958 ‘Mother India’ got nominated for Oscars but the maker had no money to attend. The government of India was requested in this regard for funding. This is the same Bollywood where now a production house spends around USD 12 million on just a single movie. Bollywood makes the most number of movies in a year compared to any other movie industry in this world. In fact this whole scenario changed when Bollywood got the status of an industry in the year 2001. Funding and flow of money is not an issue anymore in this industry. Neither foreign investment is an issue anymore because government has allowed 100% foreign direct investment in this industry. This opened up the gates for all foreign production houses to get a piece of one of the largest movie making industry in the world. When we hear news such as Reliance Entertainment signed a deal of USD 1.2 billion with Steven Spielberg to produce 36 movies for next 6 years, Walt Disney invested USD 324 million with Yash Raj Productions etc. then we understand the flow of money and change which is being talked about. Revenue generated by Bollywood was expected to be more than USD 4 billion in the year 2013. These statistics and data are more than enough to prove the evident extensive amount of money in this industry. Read More....


   Tracing the Footprints of Law of The Use of Force - by Aishwarya Singh Kashyap

“All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal.” - John Steinbeck
The new millennium presents us with the unfurnished quandary over the scope and limits of the use of force in International Relations 1, and continues to be the epicentre of a plausibly dormant pandemic catastrophe, waiting to explode. The use of ‘force ' runs parallel to history itself, increasing in magnitude of its implications along with the evolution of men. Whether it was the Church or the Sovereign, force was never ousted from the process of man's rationale to either prove his point or settle a dispute. Mythology, whether Greek or Indian has played a significant role in celebrating the prowess and grandiose of War, every now and then, being a legitimate means to conquer, as has been immortalised by the famous Julius Caesar himself - “Veni, vedi, vici” meaning ‘I came, I saw, I conquered .' However, playing an ode to such demonstration of duress, even if exuded by hegemony, is highly debatable. Read More....

   Editorial - Mr. Manish Arora

Being a decider of fates, which judges are, is not as comfortable a position as those who have never been in that position might imagine. It is a huge responsibility to shoulder, and even the shoulders with the wisest of heads on them might sometimes find it too heavy to carry, given the stringent demands of justice. Not only is law to be applied to given set of facts, but it is also to be ensured that such application of law produces just consequences, and that in no condition does it produce unjust results. .. .Read More.....
