LORD RAMA: MYTHOLOGY AND JURISPRUDENCE

AYODHYA VERDICT STARTS A NEW CHAPTER
Author: Barun Das Gupta - Published 13-11-2019 10:21 GMT-0000
The most significant aspect of the Supreme Court verdict on Ram Janambhoomu-Babri Masjid dispute is that for the first time a court of law has given recognition to a mythological figure as a juridical person by tacitly accepting that what is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Rama is, indeed, his birthplace. This has serious implications for the future. Law has always differentiated between belief and evidence – evidence that is admissible in a court of law under the Indian Evidence Act. Recognizing belief as evidence opens a Pandora’s box. There is no evidence to show that Lord Rama was a person of flesh and blood and not a mythological figure who was born at a certain place.

AYODHYA VERDICT STRENGTHENS INDIAN SECULARISM

A BOLD MOVE FOR ENSURING COMMUNAL HARMONY
Author: Sagarneel Sinha - Published 13-11-2019 10:18 GMT-0000
Since the announcement of the historic verdict regarding the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute in Ayodhya by the constitution bench of 5 judges led by CJI Ranjan Gogoi unanimously, there have been opinions from a section of intellectuals and some politicians that the verdict is based on faith — not on law. They allege, as the constitution of India enshrines secularism, this verdict, that is majoritarian in nature, goes against the very basic values of it. Those who untill before the day of judgement clearly viewed judiciary as the only solution to this very controversial issue that polarised the Indian politics and society, started criticising the apex court by saying that “Supreme Court is supreme but it is not infallible” — and are trying to forecast all those repeated “doomed prophecies of danger in the upcoming days for minorities and secularism in the country.”

AYODHYA VERDICT: JUDGMENT HAS OVERLOOKED JUSTICE

SUPREME COURT JUDGES STRESS MORE ON FAITH
Author: Amritananda Chakravorty - Published 13-11-2019 10:14 GMT-0000
On 8th November, 2019, around 8.30pm news came out that the much awaited decision of the Supreme Court in the title dispute relating to a plot of 2.77 acres of land in Ayodhya on which Babri Masjid once stood, before it was dastardly brought down by Hindutva goons on 6th December, 1992 was to be delivered next day, i.e., on 9th November, 2019. Being a Saturday (9th November), when the Supreme Court is usually shut, it was an unusual event that a judgment of this magnitude would be given. The knowledge of the impending judgment made me feel utterly scared that our worst fears would come true. This article is not a legal analysis of the 1045 pages of judgment written by, in fact, NO ONE, since the judgment is silent on its author(s), even though 5 judges of the Supreme Court led by the CJI, Ranjan Gogoi, and our ostensibly liberal ‘woke’ judge, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, heard the case on an urgent basis for 40 days.

UNCERTAINTY OVER FUTURE AFFECTS ECONOMY

Lithium is the key ingredient for the batteries fuelling the world’s electric car and smartphone revolution. Market analysts speculate that by the mid-2020s, lithium supply will be straining to keep up with demand from auto and mobile device manufacturers. It’s being called the “gold of the 21st century.” Bolivia’s largely untapped Salar de Uyuni salt flats, located high in the Andes, are estimated to contain between 25 and 45% of the planet’s known reserves. The government of Evo Morales has been working to create a publicly-owned lithium industry to help diversify his country’s economy and raise more of its people out of poverty.
