No order, no justice


By T S Sudhir

It is not a storm in a T-cup at the courts in the Telangana region. It is a very serious issue that has split the judicial system in Andhra Pradesh down the middle. Telangana lawyers want 42 per cent of all posts, the govt says the quota is already in place. Telangana lawyers claim anyone and everyone who has stayed in the region for 2-3 years is being labelled a native of Telangana.

    Hi Tss,

    That is a great title again ! Nice, relaxed but sharp report.

    Whatever I write now, might seem like talking about “my own world” , away from the realities of Indian systems. Or, some very simple thoughts. But I have to express them.

    I believe, that India, better have, a European kind of structure. Fostering DECENTRALIZATION. Tending towards all round development, rather than city-centric development. Will such Model ever be even thought of for India ?

    Frustration, over domicile status, has been at the root of T-discontentment. As regards, any sector. Along with the resentment over Dominating nature of people from other regions.

    What a tough line it is, between enjoying on one hand Indianness, constitutional provisions of being able to “settle” anywhere and take up any profession, and on the other the protection of the interests of the locals !

    My only sadness, worry, is that why does everything in India, has to be such Ad-hoc and unplanned, as opposed to “Systems being in place” ?

    I do not know whether to be cringing about this seemingly unbreakable deadlock, or watch interestingly, as to how things pan out…if I consider all this T-agitation, as a symptom, of horribly wrong roots and systems….

    The way Hyderabad was selected as “Capital” and vishalandhra idea was went about, has created such unnecessary tangles ! Will India learn, or simply lead into more “Kashmirs”, though minus the complexities of Pak and Chinese involvement.( Not commenting on ISI ).

    Should I see this, as an opportunity, for fixing a lot of Historical short-sightedness and lack of planning, or, let the heart bleed, at the way, circumstances, are controlled by strong, rich politicians and industrialists, for their interests ?

    I feel sad, when the “Lawyer-agitations” in the past one year, have been commented upon by T-politicians, in terms of “Lawyers awakening”, “Student agitation”….Before Dec 2009, how many did honestly respect or worry about Lawyers ?

    Is this the way to go about Decentralization and Smaller states ? Or, is “Something-Better than Nothing” ? I mean, just sit back and think that, anyway things in Indian system happen by Clobbering together and stuttering around ?

    Can smaller states and decentralization in, withstand the risk of “Fiefdoms” like Jharkhand, or Naxal-tangles like chattisgarh ? Or, there can be no alternative, but go ahead with “Growing-Curve” for smaller states, like learning curves ?

    Do these questions even matter for the public at large ? Thanks, for letting me use this valuable space to express my quandaries.
