Is Privacy An Ethical Or Fundamental Right?

Privacy is synonymous with humanity, goodness, character, decency, ethics and many more words, both in terms of meaning and essence. Although, it is not a fundamental or constitutional right in our country, but it is an anvil to shape almost every fundamental right, an imperative ingredient which can never be ignored while considering the human rights and freedom. To disclose one's personal life in the public using a variety of mediums - human or electronic is a disgraceful act which bitterly affects dignity and life a person. Therefore, privacy is rather a fundamental tool to protect the fundamental rights.

From family life to business engagements, there can be many incidences where people can intrude and disturb one's privacy. And, in the age of communication and social media people are more vulnerable to privacy attacks on social media. Crimes such as e-mail hacking, identity theft, data theft, counterfeiting, morphing, blackmailing and even terrorist attacks are directly or indirectly associated with the violation of privacy policies or better to say ethics.  In many recent cases a victim went through such an emotional shock that she/he compelled to make suicide attempts.

Privacy also play a pivotal role in sacred relationship between husband and the wife, too much curiosity about one's personal life spoils mutual trust, ruin relationships and even results in the disintegration of a family. If your partner is unwilling to disclose her/his past, then don't insist much. Focus on the present and the future, past has been passed forever and it will never come back. According to Charles Fried, "Privacy is necessarily related to ends and relations of the most fundamental sort: respect, love, friendship and trust, without privacy they are simply inconceivable." 

Being human, we cannot force any to share his/her personal issues, what one's like or dislike, love or hate, favour or disfavour is of no use to us, until and unless his actions or policies going to affect us. Otherwise, it is the choice of an individual that whether a person is interested to reveal his/her views or not. In fact, things depend on mutual understanding, for those whom we trust, unveil every aspect of our life very easily and comfortably, but people who are just familiar with us can never become our confidante. Hence, we should keep ourselves away from the personal life of other people because dignity is the part of humanity.

Solar power is ready to enlighten the rural India

Majority of India's underdeveloped towns and villages are highly dependent on agriculture and other primitive activities for their livelihood. Afflicted by recurrent dry monsoons and limited water supply in canals, these rural areas have nothing to meet the irrigation and potable water demand, except water-pumps and tube-wells and they too often remain idle because of poor power supply and frequent load shedding problems. Long power cuts not only adversely affect the agriculture in these areas, but the unavailability of electricity deteriorated the socio-economic growth of these regions on a larger frame. Unemployment, low productivity of the cottage industries, lack of medical facilities and poor educational opportunities are the main factors behind the underdevelopment of the rural India.   

People dwelling in rural India are currently paying their monthly electricity bill against 4 hours of per day consumption on an average, which is of no use to them. This much power is not sufficient for efficient farm produce and substantial irrigation. They are in the dire need of cost effective and uninterrupted  power to increase their productivity and income. The Government of India allows 100% FDI in renewable energy industries. Solar power shares just over one percent of India’s total installed power capacity. The present government at the Centre is planning to add 100 GW of solar capacity by 2022.

Investment in solar energy has received widespread benefits and that's why the government of India is providing Rs.15, 050 crore to promote it. Solar energy safeguards the interest of the rural population through the addressing majority of developmental issues without damaging the clean and pure environment of the countryside. Environmentally friendly solar electricity helps to enhance the annual agricultural productivity by 20-40%.  Moreover, it will also give a new life to cottage industries and small scale handicraft firms mainly run by women in these villages. Solar power in these areas will eventually increase the household income of rural people and will reduce various overhead costs such as diesel expenses for generators and irrigation roughly by Rs. 1000 – 3000 per month.

Mr. Barack Obama has expressed firm support to India in boosting the non-conventional energy sector including solar power during his visit to India in January this year. In addition, solar companies from Canada, China and Japan are also showing interest in installing their power plants.

Banking Matter Advocate Addressing Banking Concerns

Trade and commerce has always played a vital role in human societies and thus today banking is an inseparable part of these societies. Initially banking was all about maintaining accounts but now banking has moved from just maintaining accounts and transactions to the level where it has become the backbone of the country's economy.

Since banking plays such vital roles in the economy as well in the lives of millions of customers across the globe, there emerge numerous legal issues which need to be addressed. These issues come into the forefront almost every day owing to the large space of the economy that banking occupies. The nature of these issues varies from issues related to accounts to issues of loans; and issues of transactions in ATMs to issues of different schemes of the bank. Many customers come to terms with these where sometimes the bank is at fault and sometimes the customer himself is guilty.

Advocating banking matters requires skills at different levels. A banking matter advocate apart from being legally certified has to know the technicalities of banking as to serve his clients. The efficiency of a banking matter advocate can be measured by the amount of knowledge he possesses in the vast field of law and finance and also by the number of cases he has dealt with regarding banking.

Property Matters Advocate On Making A Will

Property disputes are the major causes of rivalry between families, relatives and even siblings in India. The sky-rocketing prices of properties in urban India are responsible for the greed of materialistic societies. Litigation is not always practical as it often results in prolonged procedures, lawsuits and excessive loss of money. It is popularly said that wise people always make their will at right time to make things easier for the successors. But, those who lack foresight and dies without leaving a valid Will, their property related issues are resolved through law of intestate succession and not through testamentary succession.

"It is quite ironical that around 80 per cent people in Indian die without writing a Will resulting and their heirs end up with taking legal battles against each other. Section 2(h) of Indian Succession Act, 1925 describes Will as a legal instrument to transfer his/her own property to the person he/she names after his/her death."- Kislay Pandey, Property Matters Advocate, the Supreme Court of India.

As per Section 59 of the ISA the Will maker must be mentally sound and should be at least 18 year of age. A person can make amend an old Will or can make a fresh Will after destroying the previous Will. A Will made by a person in inebriated or unconscious condition will be treated invalid before the law. A will should be made in simple language and only in those languages which are recognised by the government of India. The language should be clear to convey that what is the intention of Will maker and to whom he really transfer the property after his/her death.

A Will becomes enforceable only after the deaths of the person who has made the Will; the testator. It is not only ancestral property that can be covered in a Will, one can also make a will of personal wealth and assets.  "The attestation of the Will by an experienced physician is also advisable to avoid latter problems, after the attestation none can claim that the testator was not in sound mental condition at the time of Will writing. Following this, there should be the appointment of a few trusted persons as the executors of the Will at the time of any legal process they need to assure that properties are transferred as per the desires of the testator." - Kislay Pandey, Property Matters Advocate, the Supreme Court of India.
