figurehead and has no meaningful role to play As a general rulethe President is obliged to act in accordance with ministerial advice Howeverthe President can require the ministry to reconsider its advice if he has any misgivings about it Former President R Venkataraman had doubts about the proposal of the VP Singh government to create additional posts of Joint Election Commissioners and asked the government to reconsider its proposal The government modified its proposal in light of the Presidents misgivings President K R Narayanan had strong reservations about the contemplated move of the NDA government for imposition of Presidents rule in Bihar As Attorney GeneralI had a meeting with President Narayanan ThereafterI conveyed to Prime Minister Vajpayee that the Presidents reservations were cogent and Presidents rule in Bihar would be constitutionally vulnerable in view of the Supreme Courts judgment in the Bommai case Thereafterthe proposal was happily dropped There are some areas judicially recognised in which the President can act according to his individual judgmentviz (a) dismissal of the government which has lost its majority; (b) request for dissolution of the House; (c) the choice of the Prime Minister In the last casethe principle to be borne in mind is that the person chosen would be able to provide a government with reasonable prospect of stability This is a crucial area for the exercise of the Presidents individual judgment which requires complete objectivity uninfluenced by political considerations Pranab Mukherjee has been in the thick of party politics for the better part of his political life Apprehensions are expressed about his objectivity and fairness in the matter of choice of the Prime Minister in case of a fractured electoral verdict in 2014 These apprehensions are premature Consider the example of the appointment to the Supreme Court of Justice Krishna Iyera former minister in the Namboodiripad Communist government in Kerala Ialong with other lawyers in Bombayhad publicly opposed Krishna Iyers appointment And we were proved wrong by Krishna Iyers judicial pronouncements which betrayed no trace of Marxism but a strong attachment to our constitutional values and social justice A person grows with the office he occupies President Mukherjee after his election is no longer a member or minister in the government He is the President of the people of India We can count on President Mukherjee discharging his functions objectivelyuninfluenced by partisan political considerations but with the sole resolve to preserveprotect and defend the Constitution in keeping with his oath of office Masculine force against molesters The shameful incident of molestation of a young girl in Guwahati has generated a furious blame game Quite a few have blamed the police for its lack of swift actionits inability to ward off the molesters and to swiftly arrest them The TV journalist who recorded the incident is blamed by some for instigating the molestation To inject hilarity in the tragic situationthe girl victim is blamed for her frequenting the bar and her subsequent behaviour Blame squarely lies on the men who not only failed to come to the girls rescue but apparently enjoyed the scene with a perverted sense of delight It is often reported that when incidents of rape or molestation take place in the opennumerous males nonchalantly pass by What has happened to Indian men Are they scared or just not bothered so long as the victim is not their wifedaughter or sister I distinctly recall when two fellow college students and I confronted a hefty man who was pestering a young girl in a B-1 route bus in Bombay We rang the bell to stop the bus and with the help of the conductor and the driver threw the brute out of the bus That was in 1951 Surely Indian manhood has not taken a dip since then If it hasit should be invigorated No molester should get away unscathed with his ribs and bones

their experiences about facing racism Top News A few days ago Kal Penn shared a series of tweets that documented a few of the scripts offered to him during the early phase of his Hollywood career The scripts reflect the discrimination and racism that an Indian actor goes through while auditioning for these roles These tweets shatter one’s image about Hollywood as a liberal and forward-thinking place Kal was repeatedly asked to do stereotyped characters The actor also asked to speak in authentic ‘Indian’ accent Now in an interview with Vanity Fair Kal shares his reasons for digging out these old files and reflecting on them: “Probably eight years ago or so I was cleaning out scripts and I saved some of the ones that I thought ‘Wow this is crazy Maybe in like 50 years when things change I can do something fun with this’ I don’t remember why I decided to do it [post them now] I thought it could be fun because we have come a very long way—but we still have a long way to go” Kal told The actor also says that Hollywood is not as liberal as people think it to be “People generally think of Hollywood as forward-thinking or liberal and it’s not People who work there definitely consider themselves to be liberal or whatever but a lot of the things we sometimes unfairly assign to people who don’t share our political beliefs are things that we need to look in the mirror for as well” Kal

was asked to put a towel on his head ” I remember going on a commercial audition where somebody said ‘Can you put a bed sheet on your head Why don’t you have a turban’ And I thought Well I’m not Sikh [laughs] ‘Can you put a bed sheet on your head and come back’ Uh well no Actually I think I’m just gonna stay home So there were experiences like that; I think now you’ll find that you have an audition for something that gets canceled and you’ll ask why and they’ll say well they don’t want people of color for this or they already have people of color But again it is changing” Also Read:Nach

side Boavista FC until the deal collapsed at the last minute (Source: File) Related News Gurpreet Singh Sandhu officially signed for Bengaluru FC on Thursday But it could well have been Boavista FC The India goalkeeper who was with Norwegian team Stabaek was close to joining the Portuguese first division side until the deal collapsed at the last minute With his contract with Stabaek expiring at the end of this year Sandhu was on the lookout for another team in Europe According to sources he was in advanced talks with Porto-based Boavista who finished ninth in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season A transfer fee was being negotiated by Stabaek and Boavista who had agreed to loan him to Bengaluru for the upcoming Indian Super League season But there was a catch The deal had to be worked out by August 16 which was the transfer deadline in Norway and also the final day for Bengaluru to submit an International Transfer Certificate to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to make Sandhu eligible for continental matches Sandhu had been in talks with Boavista for several weeks but the club management was undecided The team already had two goalkeepers on its permanent roster and a third Brazilian custodian Wagner was there on loan That would have made Sandhu the team’s third or fourth-choice goalkeeper There was disagreement over the transfer fee as well Although the amount is unknown sources said Boavista found Stabaek’s demand too high With time running out Bengaluru FC stepped in The club’s chief technical officer Mandar Tamhane met Stabaek officials and initiated the process to complete the direct transfer to Bengaluru instead of loaning him from Boavista However Bengaluru did not disclose the transfer fee they paid to Stabaek to get the deal “Gurpreet was supposed to be transferred from Stabaek to another European club who were then going to loan him to us But that transfer was taking time and our thing was time-bound” Tamhane said “For Gurpreet to feature in the AFC Cup we had to submit the International Transfer Certificate to the AFC by August 16 midnight That was also the transfer deadline in Norway So we directly signed him for a transfer fee” Sandhu it is learnt was keen to join Boavista but was ultimately lured by the prospect of getting regular match time at Bengaluru The 25-year-old parted ways with Stabaek on Wednesday because he wasn’t getting enough playing time despite being the number 2 goalkeeper In Portugal he would have been the third-choice goalie at best With India all but assured of playing in the 2019 Asian Cup Sandhu said it was critical for him to remain match fit “I had an offer from another top-flight club in Europe but the need to play regularly ahead of the Asian Cup in 2019 was something that was on my mind” he said “With Bengaluru playing at the continental level this season as well as the next one it will provide the perfect platform for me” For all the latest Sports News download Indian
