There is a criminal nexus between Lawyers-Police-Polititians. For short
call it 'unholy nexus'. This unholy nexus perpetuates all kinds of legal
and illegal atrocities upon hapless public. For example, in the example of
Puduchery given in this piece, what was the police doing? Why did they not
take any action against the obstructing lawyers for 'obstructing a Civil
servant in the performance of his duties'?
Illegal degrees are everywhere. Not only this the whole lot of us have
become dishonest and corrupt, in every other walk of life. There is a very
good Urdu verse describing the resultant situation:
"Rag rag mein hai
Nashtar lagaein kahaan
"Every artery is
affected by the rot of the cancer,
Whither should the
surgery be performed?"
Has the country become incurable/ungovernable? Was democracy (in its
present form) and so much of freedom suited to our intrinsic
characteristics? These are the questions relevant under the current state
of the Nation. For almost seven decades we have tried democracy. It has
brought us, today, to this present hopeless situation. Should we continue
with it or should it be replaced by some other system which would be better
suited to our national character? This is the subject that needs debate.
Otherwise, we will be discussing 'lawless lawyers', 'corrupt police',
'corrupt politician', 'corrupt corporations, 'corrupt public behaviour'
(rape, terror and so on), 'disruption of parliament by MP's' and so on
........ an unending list.
Over-population and poor governance have been the root causes from which
all these other evils of India are sprung. These again are directly
associated with our National Characteristics.

Is there any single department in governance today that one could look up
to and say with pride that it is functioning lawfully? A forensic audit
that is based on information technology is the need of the hour. Setting up
committees have not yielded the desired results and have, on the contrary,
drained more resources, financial or otherwise!
As is true in any other major irregularity, the numbers involved (money +
people) are so large that the cost of such an audit can be off-set even if
it is given to any of the large accounting firms of repute. Alternatively,
there are significant number of upright retired bureaucrats who could be
assisted by the young IT professionals to devise ways and means to stem the
It's about time IAC gets some teeth to take the project off the "design
board" to "action ground".

*India Against Corruption*
THE LAWLESS LAWYERS
The chairman of Bar Council of India said recently in Chennai that one
third of the lawyers in India are fake. But, the loud mouthed lawyers did
not comment about this startling revelation and are conspicuous by silence.
Drunken brawl between lawyers in Chennai are no more uncommon. Many law
students in Chennai have fought pitched battles with stones and
draggers and murders have been reported. While such unsavoury incidents
continue, it now has reached a new low , as the lawyers in Puduchery
prevented the magistrate from leaving the chamber, when he remanded a
junior lawyer for misconduct. The crowd of lawyers insisted that the
accused lawyer should be released on bail and the magistrate yielded
so that he could come out of the court complex. Similar conditions prevail
all over India.
Lawyers are known to say lies without twinkling of eyelid but the image
of the lawyers have now become so tarnished that people are no more
surprised , when it is revealed that one third of the lawyers in India are
Many people are now suspicious of some of the judgements and several
judges at various levels face accusation of corrupt practices. The lawless
lawyers only further reflect on the state of judiciary in India.
It is extremely important that a screening committee should be
immediately appointed by government of India to filter out the fake lawyers
all over the country. Lawyers all over India should be asked to submit
their qualification credentials for verification and the task cannot be
simply left to bar council of India. It is too serious a situation , as
judges are being selected out of these lawyers and judiciary has a very
important role to play in safeguarding probity in public life.
