  1. Two momentous judgments greet Chief Justice Bandial?s commencement of stewardship of Supreme Court of Pakistan
  2. Prince Harry reportedly said that "quitting your job can bring you joy" but was swiftly reminded that not everyone has millions in their bank account
  3. It has been a little over two and a half months since two-time Indian Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar was accused of murdering a fellow wrestler Sagar Rana by beating him to a pulp with a stick and asking one of his goons to record the whole act on video. Since then, Kumar has run away, deceived and escaped the Delhi Police, and was ultimately caught, smack in the middle of a highway. After being arrested, Kumar’s case has been making constant rounds of the judicial court and his custody is being played hot potato with, between the judicial system and the law enforcers. View this post on Instagram Finally, it was decided that Kumar will be transferred to Tihar Jail, one of the biggest prisons in the world where the most dangerous, and evidently the most important criminals are kept and if you are really lucky (or have achieved celebrity status), you will get to make unnecessary demands as a prisoner and your wishes will come true. Kumar has all of the above and so when the wrestler made a request to have a television set up for him to watch the 2020 edition of the Olympics in Tokyo, the men at Tihar said “Sure! Why not?” Delhi's Tihar Jail will arrange a TV in common area of the ward where wrestler Sushil Kumar, accused in murder case of wrestler Sagar Rana, is lodged. He will be allowed to watch TV with other inmates: Tihar Jail official Earlier this month, Sushil had requested for TV pic.twitter.com/ks79YilwlU — ANI (@ANI) July 22, 2021 “Delhi's Tihar Jail will arrange a TV in common area of the ward where wrestler Sushil Kumar, accused in murder case of wrestler Sagar Rana, is lodged.

All the medals won by Sushil Kumar should be taken from him. We believe that police will investigate properly but Sushil will try to influence it by using his political links," Rana's mother argued, according to India Today. "We are hoping for justice. Where did he go when he was absconding, who gave him shelter, and most importantly the gangsters with whom he is connected to. He should be hanged so that people learn a lesson and think before killing his own pupil," said Rana’s father. View the full article
  4. Experts have come after Meghan Markle for her ?exhaustive? misuse of privilege
  5. The pandemic this year highlighted the disparity among people even more. While in the beginning, with complete lockdown, a lot of people were mildly inconvenienced after being forced to work from their comfortable homes, the number of people who were left stranded with no jobs, no accommodation, no way to survive was much much higher. © Reuters Now, with everything opening up, people were finally able to go back to work and earn money to survive but then again, are getting criticized for using public transportations as there's no social distancing being followed. A video from yesterday showed the crowded Borivali station in Mumbai where there were people piled on top of another in order to board the train. At first glance, a lot of people just shook their heads and commented about how we'll never get rid of COVID-19 if people behaved like this. Borivali station, Mumbai. Today. pic.twitter.com/QGspNgPPD3 — Sheela Bhatt (@sheela2010) September 24, 2020 But honestly, that statement in itself reeks of privilege. Of course, everyone who has the luxury to work from home with all the comforts available to them would be that preachy. © Reuters But what a lot of people fail to realize is that everyone travelling by the local train doesn't have any other option. I'm pretty sure they would not choose to risk their lives by being stuck to strangers in a public place, but how else are they going to get to work? No wonder the virus loves Bombay and Bombay loves the virus — Radhika Ramaseshan (@Radrama) September 24, 2020 Cabs are expensive as hell for everyday travel and not everyone can afford personal cars to ensure social distancing. It could be helpful if the people in charge could focus on this urgent matter and find a way to follow some kind of social distancing and if the employers would be more relaxed with the in and out timings so employees can at least get on the train when it isn't that crowded. Corona has no space to enter ... — Dinesh Trivedi (@DinTri) September 24, 2020 The problem here is not with the people on the train, it's with the people sitting at home criticizing these people without even considering their predicaments. It's a request to such people to get off their high horse and actually demand a real change from the government if they care that much. It's honestly sad that people have to pick between COVID and starvation. Me too travel from mumbai local train... No choice.... Salary to chahiye...

I see a lot of blame on these people and not on the corporates who are making them do this. https://t.co/7FdhRRdEa8 — Stigette Cha Navra (@Brewkenstein) September 25, 2020 Some of us will never get it. Obviously we have failed. There's no doubt about that. We fucked this up. Imagine having to step out for your daily bread at the risk of your life — Pog!ba goes my heart (@WhiskeyTwilight) September 24, 2020 Please suggest suggestions on how. Hello my Mumbai, social distancing pls? https://t.co/fjrbtrwZ2N — Chaiti Narula (@Chaiti) September 24, 2020 This is what I meant when I talked about entitled people. Why Bombay why https://t.co/8e001mZQuX — Akshita Nandagopal (@Akshita_N) September 24, 2020 Ding ding ding!

  6. 'Nepotism is prevalent everywhere in our culture, be it in politics, business, or film," Abhay Deol said
  7. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, people across the world have suffered huge losses. As of now, COVID-19 has taken 293,547 lives and it continues to infect more people worldwide. However, besides the actual disease, casualties are also seen in the form of people who are working on the frontlines, or the ones who are dying from not having enough food and other supplies in this time of crisis. In India, migrant workers have been worst hit amid the lockdown, as they have no means to fend for themselves anymore. As they move in large numbers to go back to their hometowns, (as living in cities is not even an option anymore for them) without public travel facilities, they're dealing with hunger, exhaustion, and the sheer trauma of having their life uprooted in a jiffy. For instance, an NDTV reporter recently interviewed an auto driver, Md Jawed who was traveling with his family and relatives from Bhiwandi to Lucknow as living in Bhiwandi wasn't possible for the family anymore. The tempo approximately carried 19-20 people in it. मà¤à¤¦à¥à¤°à¥à¤ à¤à¥ à¤à¤¼à¤¿à¤à¤¦à¤à¥ à¤à¤¾ à¤à¥à¤ भरà¥à¤¸à¤¾ नहà¥à¤.. लà¤à¤¾à¤¤à¤¾à¤° हम मà¥à¤à¤¬à¤ नासिठहाà¤à¤µà¥ पर मà¤à¤¦à¥à¤°à¥à¤ à¤à¥ परà¥à¤¶à¤¾à¤¨à¥ à¤à¤ªà¤à¥ बता रहॠहà¥à¤, à¤à¤ भॠयहॠà¤à¤° रहा था.. सà¥à¤¬à¤¹ 10 बà¤à¥ à¤à¥ à¤à¤°à¥à¤¬ वासिà¤à¤¦ मà¥à¤ हमारॠमà¥à¤²à¤¾à¤à¤¾à¤¤ मà¥à¤¹à¤®à¥à¤®à¤¦ à¤à¤¾à¤µà¥à¤¦ सॠहà¥à¤.. à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¥ परिवार à¤à¤° à¤à¤¾à¤à¤µ à¤à¥ à¤à¥à¤ लà¥à¤à¥à¤ à¤à¥ मिलाà¤à¥ à¤à¤°à¥à¤¬ 20 लà¥à¤ à¤à¥à¤®à¥à¤ªà¥ सॠà¤à¤¾ रहॠथॠpic.twitter.com/TZCAyjjAVV â sohit mishra (@sohitmishra99) May 11, 2020 Things took a turn for worse when the reporters while returning, spotted the same tempo that they had interviewed earlier that morning. The tempo had met with a gruesome road accident that took the life of the driver on the spot. While some family members were injured and admitted to a nearby hospital. Here take a look at the report.

As PM Narendra Modi first announced the first phase of a nationwide lockdown on March 24, 2020, without a heads up, the migrant workers in metropolitans started struggling. With a meager, hand-to-mouth income that barely cuts it, meeting needs for weeks to come was next to impossible. In such a scenario, migrant workers in huge numbers had set out to return to their hometowns on foot given the fact that there was no alternative left for them. Walking hundreds of kilometers on foot meant that casualties increased by the day. This also brings into perspective the fact while some of us are comfortably cooped-up in our houses complaining about the monotony amid the coronavirus crisis, there are people out there struggling to make ends meet in unimaginable ways. Times like these easily highlight the growing difference between the privileged few and millions suffering in the country. While the government is increasingly looking out to help these workers, the efforts are not enough to help tackle the situation at hand. View the full article

  9. It's a rare occurrence for our cozy privileged bubble to burst. Recent events in Mumbai and Pune call for rethinking what we knew about caste and caste-based violence. This is an opportunity to understand the unspoken laws that govern our society and to determine whether we'll follow the same footsteps as our ancestors or make a personal change for the betterment of all. This incident, and in extension, this article, is an invitation to retrospect, learn and hopefully progress in the right direction. What Happened In Pune And Why? © BCCL An event was organised in Shaniwar Wada on 1st January to commemorate the bicentennial anniversary of the Battle of Koregaon where the British East India Company defeated Maratha ruler Baji Rao Peshwa II. During the week preceding the event, several right-wing groups like the Akhil Bhartiya Brahman Mahasabha, Rashtriya Ekatmata Rashtra Abhiyan, Hindu Aghadi and the descendants of the Peshwas had opposed the event, stating that it was 'anti-national' (for any foreigners reading this, that's an Indian politician term used when you disagree with them) and casteist. On the day of the event, protests broke out when activists, some carrying saffron flags, attacked the peaceful gathering. An innocent person died in the violence, several others were injured and over 40 vehicles were damaged. The protests spilled onto Mumbai when Dalit activists mobilised several people to participate in raasta roko, rail roko protests and called for Maharashtra Bandh on 3rd January. What's Wrong With The Way We Responded? We, who constitute the urban youth, responded with characteristic insensitivity. We took to Twitter where vitriol sells better and faster than nuanced opinion. Branding the protestors as jobless freeloaders, sharing memes about how SC/STs have always kept their interests above the nation and getting agitated because the gym was closed are a few of the many ways we completely missed the point. Clearly, our views seem to be based on a superficial understanding of the issue, selfishness and WhatsApp forwards. Firstly, it is important to note that in the late 18th century, Peshwas were considered to be upper-caste Brahmins whereas Mahars were untouchables. Mahars were made to tie brooms behind them in order to clean the area that was left “impure” due to them having walked over it. Yes, the imprint of their footsteps was deemed so dirty, that they themselves had to clean it lest the upper caste people step over it. Despite having helped the Peshwas win several battles earlier, they were made to sleep and eat differently from the other soldiers. Shocked? Open your eyes and check where your house help is sleeping/eating right now. But we'll get to that in a bit. Now, it may seem off-putting that the Shaniwar Wada event was organized to commemorate the victory of the colonialists over an Indian ruler. The reason is that in the Dalit narrative, the British forces consisted of a considerable number of Mahars and the victory of the British over Peshwas was heralded as a victory of the Mahars over their evil oppressors. Within this broader historical context, it's foolish to dismiss members of the Dalit community as freeloaders or anti-nationals, these are victims who are merely celebrating their freedom, and our dialogue should acknowledge that. Casteists Hiding Under The Veil Of Nationalism As it turns out, upon further research, painting the Battle of Koregaon as a victory over caste oppression was a bit of a stretch. Although the British were perceived as the lesser of the two evils at the time, they were, after all, imperialists and took little interest in restoring social equality after the dust settled. Regardless, on 1st January, there was no cause for violence when people had gathered peacefully to address the oppression faced by different minorities. Yet, right-wing groups calling such gatherings casteist and possibly playing a role in disrupting them is the most ironic stance taken by any group in recent history. It's like when white Americans were referring to the Black Lives Matter movement as racist. No, dear privileged-member-of-society, this isn't about you, this is probably because of you. Support or shut up. © BCCL In 2017, the young urban population was thoroughly exposed to the nationalism aspect of Hindu nationalism with censorship of Hollywood movies and mandatory standing for the national anthem in theatres. We have the money and the privilege to have these problems. We saw a glimpse of the Hindu aspect when we saw innocent Muslims being lynched on TV. With the Bhima Koregaon protests, we finally see the real ugly face of Hindu nationalism - a fringe group of upper-caste Hindus trying to convert the social privilege that they've accumulated over the years into political power under the veil of nationalism, an equally ancient, but unfortunately relevant concept in today's information age. We realize that a bandh enforced by brute force is unfavorable and unconstitutional but so is caste-discrimination and that continues to be the norm long after the drafting of our Constitution. Our fellow countrymen have suffered centuries of humiliation and are still struggling to assert their identity, we need to get some perspective and stop blaming them for disrupting the traffic for a few hours. Violence is wrong, but we're making the mistake of allowing the minority violent faction to drown the noise that peaceful protesters have been trying to make for quite some time now. But We're Woke AF Some people proudly declare that caste is an artificial construct and disappears automatically in cities considered to be melting pots like Mumbai. It's not often that the urban population finds itself dealing with caste issues; it's something that they consider to be a rural problem. Nothing could be further away from the truth. In rural areas, casteism is blatant and painfully visible but in cities, it hides in plain sight. Whether it's hiring a maid or filing a police complaint, transactions in urban India tend to have subtle casteist undercurrents. It's a matter of opening our eyes to them. © Youtube_The Viral Fever (Image for representational purpose only) We can't even imagine letting maids sleep on our beds but in reality, they won't dare to sit on them either, because of their inherent casteism. When your friend is forced to break ties with a long-time partner, to marry someone “who will find it easier to adjust” in his household, he's being forced to marry within his caste. Terms like "those people" that your family uses have casteist undertones. If 25% of the population belongs to the SC/ST community, why haven't you met anyone who identifies themselves as a member? Why is being a 'TamBrahm' (Tamil Brahmin) a badge of honour? If the first question your grandmother asks your maid before hiring her is her “surname”, then that's casteism right there in your family tree. Ever notice how many times people around you ask you your surname and then immediately guess your father's occupation, how do they do that? Casteism is an issue and it's all around you. Lower castes suffer even in the most progressive environments, it's just that the problem is so strongly rooted in our society that it is not easy for one to identify their own privilege. What We Can Do To Help In conclusion, it is important to recognise that more often than not, urban is synonymous with upper caste. We're complaining about being inconvenienced because a community that has been wronged is protesting while we're the ones responsible for suppressing them in the first place, either through direct caste-based discrimination or through our ignorance. In times like these, the very least we can do is acknowledge the sensitive nature of the problem and inform ourselves. For those who believe that their caste or religion is an integral part of their identity, here's a simple experiment - if you can strip it off and suddenly find yourself at a disadvantage in regular daily-life activities, then before being a part of your identity, it is part of your privilege. Strip it off - it's a relic of the past and a heavy baggage for the future. Everyday actions can help break down casteism. When such protests happen, listen. Destroy the utensils 'reserved' for your house help. Stop calling a shabbily dressed person "bhangi". Take off the janeu. Stop hashtagging #Tambrahm, because that one hashtag also involves a whole sect of people forced to clean out human waste with their bare hands for generations. Actively acknowledge, support and learn from current issues of the lower caste people. And most importantly, don't arrogantly expect the Dalits to strip off their identity, for it is to that very identity that we owe massive reparations.
