ON REVAMPING THE INDIAN POLICE

It is the inbred duty of the state to provide for a non-partisan and efficient police authority that will facilitate in shielding the interests of the people. ‘Police’ being a state subject under the Constitution of India, the onus falls upon the state government to provide for a streamlined police force. Quite a few years have passed since the prominent judgement of the Supreme Court in the case of Prakash Singh v. Union of India[1] on police reforms exhorting the central and the state government to modify the police system making it more people centric than ruler centric but the ground reality seems to be unvaried. During our colonial time people had a fear of Police owing to the fact that the very fabrication of colonial police is based on wariness, and the image associated with it was robust but now that fabrication needs to be reviewed.

What is Article 35-A?

Article 35-A is a provision that was incorporated in the constitution giving the J&K legislature a carte blanche to decide who all are to be regarded as the permanent members of the state and to confer them with some special rights and privileges.

Accordingly, the Article 370 was incorporated into the Indian Constitution, which stipulated that the other Articles of the Constitution that gave powers to the Central…

E-books: The New Trend in Reading

Well, books are nothing but the art of literary works. Starting from the very primitive era where ‘The Epic of Gilgamesh’ had been recorded as the first written story to the present-day world where the concept of e-books has been established, the primary motive of an individual is to achieve success. And for achieving the success he tries to bring down the atmosphere to as comfortable as he can. 
Late 20th century and early 21st century has witnessed many great inventions. The invention and increased usage of smartphones and tablets are probable what has lead to the popularization of e-books, even changing the attitude of people towards reading altogether. So much have these inventions affected people that some are now of the view that E-books are the death of paper books while some people still believe in the old traditional way of reading. For me, it is somewhat a different concept. Surveys conducted by several agencies have revealed that every passing year witnesses a gradual increa…
