Privacy Matters - Does it Supreme Court

A statement by Supreme Court few weeks back about the right to privacy not being constitutionally added to the fundamental rights of citizens is both disheartening and an example of lacuna vision.
Privacy is important everywhere, in each fields. It is by the worth of privacy different judiciary roles are vested among the officers in a hierarchy. The different departments correlate to each other by carefully studying what forms the crucial, important and ethical information. Another fact of privacy is security. Armed forces, banks, businesses, healthcare, education and even job sector are not secure if the data about their functioning and those involved with them is openly shared.

Nations play the card of tough ground position of each other to deal among themselves. There is no way we openly can discuss our national security. However, we have much improved by acquiring latest weaponry and our soldiers have latest field techniques and skills. Yet, we do not superfluously indulge in issues without giving it first a peaceful thought.

Banks thrive on strong encryption and passwords to provide financial strength to their customers. Is it okay to elucidate to everyone with mere an interest about one’s financial assets.
Businesses are judged by their market value, ROI, and find a tough competition on various tender notices. A single act of misinformation has been crucial in judging the reputation but also leaked information leads to instability and indecision. There could not more tough metrics than what is substantially required by them and thus, privacy is here a rule.

In healthcare, the funds are scarce and health insurance is still a distance dreams for millions up and below the poverty line. In this scenario often the wise decision is made from the circumstances in this country. It is sometimes circumstantial too. To study some epidemic or more relevant diseases, the funds are prioritized. Many other schemes if so openly discussed, a layperson could feel dumb because one can only challenge and even 50 years of pinning on courts cannot bring results. The problem is elsewhere. In these cases privacy is not a problem but ineffectiveness is. It is however, very threatening to destabilize the system because some truth is known, even if half.

The same is about education and job sector, though minimal problems but they require sensitive handling by the education departments. More so, there is consistently changing situation in our country and the best challenge is our human resource which immediately settles not just to be independently responsible but to strengthen the whole.

Privacy is controversial at places where it leads to poor resolution of problem but largely it hardly a base. The facts lie somewhere else. There has to be a visionary like Dhirubhai Ambani, Ratan Tata, Anna Hazare who tell us that we can build much stronger us and the nation without bringing her to knees.

Hope our government and Supreme Court will too take into notice these minor edges. Hope the situations can be contained. If the solutions are not feasible or cannot be imagined at least we remain lawful and respect privacy.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Has Always Been

First Published on Poem Hunter

Once wide open
does seems the world is
riding on breeze
for a moment of thought

my pen is pouring
celebration of life, an afterthought
in own musing of ideas
where a tear is no longer a fear
nothing devises as found in

eternal or has always been.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
