Ideology can differ; ideas need not necessarily.When everyone strives for common good utility is the experience ordinary people enjoy. But there needs to be a Lowest Common Factor(LCM). The LCM for public men on service of the common people can be summed up in three words—DECENCY,RESPECTABILITY,& DIGNITY.

The webinar in Malayalam medium discussed it at length. Listen to the various tones set to same notes!!




Human rights are inherent in an individual.Inextricable and inalienable. Every authority under the constitution and the laws have an indispensable duty to protect human rights of all human lives under their jurisdictions.

Government plays a major role in protecting the human rights as well as can also violate human rights when

fails in its duty to protect them.

The key note speaker Dr. Subramanian Swamy congratulated Dr. Pillay for the new concept. He enlightened us on Article 14 of the Constitution of India wherein government was obliged to impose the fundamental rights of

equality which has been misinterpreted by the general public. He emphasised on various judgements wherein Hon’ble Supreme Court has held equality of the equals. He also mentioned in his talk about the violation of Article 14 raised by AR Antulay for being treated differently by the establishment of special courts. He also talked about Article 19 which deals with the freedom of speech and also emphasised about the reasonable restrictions

enshrined in Article 19(2) which cannot challenge the unity of India. He shared his reminisces where Former Prime Minister Narasimha Rao nationalised all the lands around RamJanmaBhoomi. Courts play a major role in protecting the human rights of all the citizens of the country. Article 25 which deals with the right to practice, profess and propagate religion of one's choice is also subject to public order morality and health. Citizens have the right to

sue the government for damages when their fundamental rights are violated. He further emphasised the

need to agitate the issue of genocide wherein a large number of innocent people are killed.

TIME - 5PM         DATE- 26TH   MAY  2021 (WEDNESDAY) 

Speech by Hon’ble Mr.Justice L.Nageswara Rao, Judge, Supreme Court of India.

A virus born in Wuhan, China, escaped to the world outside and smouldered into a global health catastrophe with the speed of light. Within no time it became a pandemic. World came to a standstill. Man confronted a unique adversary. It affected everything; it affected the factors and forces that regulated human relations. COVID-19 as it came to be called dealt with the law and justice sector rudely. Legal education became an easy scapegoat. The problem has its micro, macro and mega dimensions. New platforms emerged; new tools, new jargons, new procedures, new work ethics got developed. How the legal profession and legal education could briddle the “ unruly horse” that is Corona? That is for deliberation. The problem, it’s diagnosis, remedy and the future.



TIME - 6PM         DATE- 19TH   MAY  2021 (WEDNESDAY) 

“The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.”-

‘The Second Coming’, W.B.Yeats


A new disease which was unknown to the normal people had emerged in 2019. Strange words such as quarantine, lockdown and Corona virus have become common among the commons. The world has witnessed a pause in the never-ending sound of travel. Flights cancelled, tourism stopped; also the lives, profession and the health of the people were threatened by the fast multiplying virus risking the very safety of human civilisation.

Apart from the economic problems created by the border closures and lockdown procedures, the people were also affected psychologically due to the social distancing and quarantine procedures.

In India as part of the preventive measures in spreading COVID -19, a nation-wide lockdown for more than two months was clamped; although it is still questionable whether people are aware of the seriousness of the issue. Indians are particularly vulnerable because the majority lack social protection and access to quality health care and have lost access to productive assets.

The recent outbreak of 2nd wave of COVID -19 and the Oxygen shortages in India have pinpointed the lacunae in the Government administration.

We must rethink the future of our environment and tackle climate change and environmental degradation with ambition and urgency. Only then can we protect the health, livelihoods, food security and nutrition of all people, and ensure that our ‘new normal’ is a better one. The scenario is such that it is ‘situation reaction tests’ for those in power and authority; with responsibility and obligation. The governing process suffered huge turbulence; the governed running helter-skelter; and governance stands truncated.


Let us go back to W.B.Yeats to capture the correct imagery,


“Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold:

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned:

The best lack…………………………….

………………………passionate intensity.”

But it is a fight mankind has to win. Win we will with connectivity and collective action, “To strive ,to seek, to find, and not to yield.” CG3 is presenting before the esteemed audience the perspectives of the problem and its panacea through the words of wisdom of the scholarly guests. Welcome to all; come and get connected to the event.
