BOOK RELEASE

TEXTBOOK ON LAW, POVERTY & DEVELOPMENT -

by Maj. Gen. Nilendra Kumar

A Soldier's Soundign Reveillie To Fight Social Injustice

He fought in the battle field, emerging gloriously shining. Retired but spirits still alive and virile, Maj Gen (Retd.) Nilendra Kumar found yet another casus belli against social injustice, thereby sounding reveillie to invade the virulent foe- the poverty, not by drawing out the sword from scabbard, not by holding the blunderbuss in hand, but by holding the tiny yet mighty weapon of pen using his entire vim. 

Maj Gen Nilendra Kumar observed and studied the vicissitudes of peoples' lives living below poverty line and prescribed the anodyne of law to cure the deadly disease. The first step of Maj Gen Kumar to rekindle his combat drill was to compile his recce observations in the shape of the book, captioned, Law, Poverty & Development . Maj Gen Kumar is presently the Director of Amity Law School, Noida. The book in question is co-authored by his son Kush Chaturvedi, Advocate, and has been published by Universal Law Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd.

The book was released at Amity University, U.P. on July 27, 2011, by Dr. M. Veerappa Moily, Minister of Corporate Affairs, in the august presence of Guest of Honour, Mr. Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan, Judge, Supreme Court of India. Also present on the occasion, was Dr. Ashok Chauhan, Founder President of Amity University and Maj Gen (Retd.) K.J. Singh, Vice- Chancellor.

Justice Radhakrishnan said that in several countries there is a provision of two years' compulsory military service. We, in India, should prescribe a two years compulsory social service after graduation.

In his speech, Veerappa Moily said that our Constitution is a conflict resolution document, which should be used for elimination of poverty. He said poverty is nothing but absence of opportunity. We should use the might of law to provide opportunity for everybody. Moily congratulated the authors and the publishers for producing such a wonderful book.

Dr. Ashok Chauhan found the function an opportunity to meet his students face to face. He advised the students to keep on reading the illuminating judgements of the Hon'ble High Courts and the Supreme Court for knowledge and enlightenment.
