“Nature is plundered for the greed of profit of the monopolies, including the recent destruction of Amazonia in the interests of capitalism”, noted the 2200-plus word appeal of the 21st international meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties in Izmir, the third-largest city of Turkey on the Aegean coast, known as Smyrna in antiquity, between 18 and 20 October.

CJI’S DEALING OF KASHMIR PETITIONS SHOWS HIM IN POOR LIGHT

Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi is retiring on November 17. Lawyers often joke that an incumbent chief justice of India always makes the last one look better, and nowhere has it been more true than the present one. In the run up to the retirement of Chief Justice Dipak Mishra (Retd.) in the last week of September, 2018, there was much anticipation of the onset of ‘new era’ under the stewardship of the Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, who was supposed to be upright and no nonsense person, and who participated in that landmark press conference by the four seniormost judges on 12th January, 2018. Alas, the last one year has been such a shock to the ‘collective conscience’ of the lawyers, jurists, and common public that people are now talking fondly of Justice Dipak Mishra, and how he was not ‘so bad’. It’s like our current Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, making the Hindutva ideologue, L.K. Advani look better.
