Govt Vs judiciary Why the SC must back off and not encroach on executive domain

The confrontation that's brewing between executive and judiciary is partly because in the last 25 years the judiciary encroached onto executive space, aided by weak coalition governments who failed to assert themselves #ConnectTheDots #InMyOpinion #Executive Vs Judiciary #Markandey Katju #SH Kapadia #Judicial appointments #LoP #Judicial Independence #NJAC Bills

England vs India Old Trafford thrashing exposes Dhoni's acceptance of defeat

Without agreeing to safeguarding their food interests, India cannot agree to a treaty aimed at maximising (mostly) rich countries exports. #UPA #US #InMyOpinion #Food security #WTO #Trade Facilitation Agreement #Modi's WTO stand
