Asian Studies

Most Asian Studies research and other activities are carried out under the aegis of programmatic thematic clusters that address questions relevant to present-day Asian societies while paying attention to long-term historical trends, and all built around the notion of social agency. The aim of this approach is not to exclude anyone or any topic, -Asian Studies also welcomes research in other areas-, but to cultivate synergies and coherence between people and projects, as well as to generate more interaction with Asian societies. Asian Cities
Keeping a close eye on contemporary developments, the cluster seeks to explore the longstanding Asian urban ‘tradition’, by discussing the origins of urbanism and urban culture in different parts of Asia, and by linking the various elements of city cultures and societies, from ancient to modern (colonial to postcolonial) times.

Why Should UP Have Least High Court Benches In India?

Image
Let me begin on a bitter note by expressing my profuse disappointment and utmost disenchantment with the continuous and callous disregard of more than 19 crore people living in different parts of UP which is more than 10 small states put together by Centre since 1947 till 2019! Why is it that only Eastern UP has high court at Allahabad and a single bench at Lucknow and all the other regions like Western UP, Bundelkhand and Purvanchal etc have been completely disregarded and denied their legitimate share by giving them at least one high court bench? Why no government in Centre has ever taken any initiative to correct this worst injustice since 1947 till now in 2019? It is UP where maximum cases of crimes takes place and West UP alone owes for more than half of the total cases in UP and yet it has not even a single bench of high court even though Justice Jaswant Singh Commission headed by former Supreme Court Judge Jaswant Singh categorically recommended bench for West UP …

Drop This Episode From Your Minds And Gossips”: BCI Endorses Bobde Panel Report, Accuses The Complainant

Image
In a latest, landmark and extremely laudable decision, the Bar Council of India (BCI) which represents all the lawyers of India and lays down rules and regulations which all lawyers have to follow has clearly, courageously and convincingly endorsed in no uncertain terms the Bobde Panel Report which was prepared by the second most senior Judge of Supreme Court – Justice Sharad A Bobde along with two eminent women Judges of Supreme Court – Justice Indu Malhotra and Justice Indira Banerjee. The Bobde Panel Report after examining the charges in detail had found no substance in the allegations made by the woman complainant against the CJI Ranjan Gogoi and therefore her complaint was rejected. The incumbent CJI Ranjan Gogoi thus stands exonerated!

Needless to say, the Bar Council of India (BCI) has very rightly minced no words in directly appealing to the members of the legal fraternity, the Judges and the people of this country to rise to the occa…

Successive Bail Applications Should Be Placed Before The Same Judge Who Considered The First One: SC

Image
In a fresh and latest development, the Supreme Court on May 6, 2019 has in a latest, landmark and laudable judgment titled M/s Gati Limited Vs. T. Nagarajan Piramiajee & Anr. in Criminal Appeal No. 870 of 2019 [Arising out of SLP (Cri.) No. 6677 of 2018] reiterated as it has several times in the past that successive bail applications filed by an accused should be placed before the same Judge who had refused bail in the first instance, unless that Judge is not available. If that Judge is not available who had refused bail at the first instance then it can be placed before some different Judge. Both the litigants and also all the Judges must always keep this key point in mind on such cases. There can be no denying or disputing it!

To start with, this notable judgment begins by first and foremost observing in para 2 that, “This appeal is filed questioning the order dated 25.07.2018 passed by the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court in Cri. O.P. …
