Prakash Narayan Column: IIT Bay Area’s leadership conference was enriching

Prakash Narayan writes: IIT Bay Area’s Leadership Conference on September 16, 2023 at the Santa Clara Convention Center embraced the principles of Resilience and Reinvention. As we are collectively facing the aftermath of the Pandemic-induced “Great Reset”, along with stubborn inflation, the ongoing war in Russia, a decline in GDP, and a deterioration of startup valuations, the conference equipped the attendees with the tools and ideas necessary to navigate through these turbulent times with knowledge, determination and strength.

Justice Markandey Katju: Arghya Sengupta’s superficiality and inanity

Justice Markandey Katju writes: I saw a recent interview by eminent journalist Karan Thapar of Arghya Sengupta, research director of Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy on his book ‘The Colonial Constitution’, and I regret to say that I found Dr Sengupta’s views superficial and inane. The thrust of Dr Sengupta’s argument is that the basic defect in the Indian Constitution of 1950 is that it does not devolve power to the people. In other words, it gives too much power to the Central Government, which towers over the people, and therefore it is broadly a repetition of the colonial Government of India Act, 1935 made by the British rulers.

Blame Canada

Father’s Day this year could have ended differently for Balraj Singh Nijjar, of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

Around 8:30 PM that day, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, 45, father of Balraj and a younger brother, walked out of Surrey’s Guru Nanak Gurdwara into the parking lot. Two heavier-set masked men laid in wait for at least an hour and shot Mr. Nijjar through the window of his truck multiple times; assassins escaped in a getaway car driven by a third accomplice. Mr. Nijjar, a Canadian citizen since 2007 after entering the country in 1997, was the President of this Gurdwara and a prominent member. Three months on, no arrests have been made, nor any suspect named.
