Harvey Weinstein must face British actress's sex trafficking lawsuit, judge rules 14.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Movie producer Harvey Weinstein must face a civil lawsuit by a British actress who has accused him of violating sex trafficking laws by inviting her to a hotel room in France and sexually assaulting her, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet in Manhattan on Tuesday denied Weinstein's motion to dismiss the lawsuit, which was filed last year by Kadian Noble. The judge said that while the case was "not an archetypal sex trafficking action, the allegations plausibly establish" that Weinstein violated the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act. Lawyers for Weinstein and Noble could not immediately be reached for comment. Noble is one of more than 70 women, mostly young actresses and other women employed in the movie business, who have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including rape, in a series of incidents dating back decades. Weinstein , who was one of the most powerful figures in Hollywood before the accusations surfaced in October, is separately facing criminal rape ...

Speak up Delhi: Kanwar kand – An act of disgrace, a capital shame, say angry citizens 13.8.2018 DNA: India
The auspicious month of 'Sharavan', known to bring divine grace on devotees, is also famous for the Kanwar Yatra, which is an annual pilgrimage by Shiva devotees who walk from their homes to Haridwar to fetch holy Ganga water. But this has started turning into a menace in north India for both the police and the locals. With hooliganism in the name of god, the Kanwar Yatra in recent times has started to see a kind of social disorder and violence on the roads, never witnessed earlier. The recent such incident was when around a dozen saffron-clad kanwar pilgrims wrecked a car — driven by a CISF inspector's daughter — with rods and sticks and turned it turtle on a busy street in West Delhi's Moti Nagar area on Tuesday evening, as policemen and passersby looked on helplessly. The video capturing the violence showed two policemen nonchalantly strolling nearby as the vandals went about wrecking the car. "The vehicle hit one of the Kanwariyas after which an altercation began. One of the occupants slapped a ...

Jurisprudence and a girl on a tightrope 13.8.2018 DNA: India
Though it is almost a vanishing art, our city still has few troupes of tightrope walkers performing on the streets. As I was watching a little girl balancing herself precariously above the hard tarmac of the city road, I was struck hard by the symbolic nature of the phenomenon. If you observe a tightrope walker troupe, they erect their masts of bamboo and ropes by driving a two feet metal nail into the tar road to anchor the ropes. As these nails are hammered through the structural cross-section of the road, they are like deep wounds through which water will travel below the road and, over time, can even lead to the caving of road that we citizens celebrate as a Bhuvo – a symbol of "failure" of the civic administration. So, if one troupe is performing at ten locations in a day, they end up seriously damaging the road by making twenty such holes per day. If we look at the cost city incurs from their vocation, the knee-jerk reaction would be that state should immediately ban such performers. But, is it ...

Politics over crime perverse: PM Narendra Modi 13.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
Reducing cases of crime against women and lynching to mere statistics for politics is a "great travesty", and shows a "perverse mindset", Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said in an interview with ANI. "Let there be no doubts about the will of my government to implement the rule of law in its true letter and spirit," he said. He said even a single incident is one too many and deeply unfortunate. "Everyone should rise above politics to ensure peace and unity in our society," he said. PM Modi tore into his rivals when the news agency sought his comments on the Opposition that has raised cases of rape and lynching, and accused him of being silent on them. "It would be a great travesty to reduce these incidents to mere statistics and then indulge in politics over them. That shows a kind of perverse mindset that looks at violence and criminality as something to be milked, instead of unitedly opposing," the PM said in the e-mail interview. He said his party, BJP, and he have spoken in clear words against such ...
