Executive decisions are not for judges

Context:

The Supreme Court ban on the sale of liquor is an example of judicial overreach. Such policies are unambiguously in the domain of the executive


Hack that EVM, the republic demands it

Context:

A good, first step

Context:

The move to let retailers revise fuel prices on a daily basis is a beginning. But more needs to be done

Context:

Recent media reports on proceedings in the Supreme Court reported that the massive use of paper means felling thousands of trees. However, there is no truth in the argument that using less paper saves the environment. The paper industry in India is not cutting forests; it has been encouraging the growing of trees at a fast pace in order to source wood.


Towards a stronger seafood sector

Context:

An indifferent approach to exacting quality control could be disastrous for India’s buoyant aquaculture industry.


Finally, a progressive mental healthcare Bill

Context:

While the decriminisation of suicide marks a huge step forward, reforms in mental health facilities are urgently needed
