Indian Premier League (IPL) has taken a jibe of SPOT fixing in its latest season of 2013 just before the finish of trophy. Fixing in cricket is not fresh scandal unearthed by the Delhi and Mumbai police, even before also former captain of India cricket team was found to be guilty. But bigger question is why did Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), did not take the action after the scandal surfaced in 2000, they sat on it for so long that It has became so nasty now that not only players but even the team managers seems to be involved in it. Again police seems to be doing the job to spot the players who seems to be involved in the business of fixing and their links to Bollywood and underworld. If police is willing and government allows they will soon hit a hornet’s nest, which can lead to big fishes and sharks who are actually controlling this billion dollars business. But the basic question need to be asked whether putting a better laws to curb betting business will help anyone or it will be a cover up until a fresh scandal hit the media and chorus starts again to ban the game itself. Indian media and society just wanted to show their back to nasty business of spot fixing, as if it is something which was not done before and after scandal it is not happening, which is totally untrue because of the nature of business, where money is involved in billions of dollars. We need to face this issue upfront that demanding more laws to curb the spot fixing will not help, as bookies and their masters will find a better solution to use the same system to generate the profit. Better solution will be to regulate the betting and legalize betting so that bookies can come in open and revenue, which is generated can come to government. Government and their ministers have to understand that basic instinct of human nature cannot be curbed by more and strict laws but by regulating it, which is done in the case of liquor, which once was treated as immoral and ban was put on it. But soon the government realized that it will not help and regularized it start a revenue stream from it, same need to done for cricket too. Continue Reading more!

To begin the joke, India has given its citizen “Right to Freedom of speech and expression”. The best part is, joke ends there and people who thought that they have that right, suffered either at the hand of public or government or police or media. No debate or discussion, to ask someone who made statement that prove it in public with evidence else you will be ignored and lose credibility. But it’s INDIA, we don’t have to expect much in terms of understanding free speech and expression as First amendment made to constitution was to curb it under Restrictions Clause (2) of Article 19 of the Indian constitution, enables the legislature to impose reasonable restrictions on free speech under following heads:
- security of the State,
- friendly relations with foreign States,
- public order,
- decency and morality,
- contempt of court,
- incitement to an offence, and
- sovereignty and integrity of India.

Violence is one of the basic human instinct evolved since the inception of human being where the survival of the fittest was the only way out. People were and are always involved in some sort of violence; gaining some or the other benefit, either tangible or intangible. Mostly women are the one, who suffer maximum number of causalities and abuse. Only human can think and we all are products of our own thoughts; which builds character from preconceived notion from society and religion. Human mind being the servant of its own thoughts, which are deeply rooted in patriarchal and religious values. Religion no matter what it is; always been biased for women and subjugation of the right is prevalent in sacred text; where women is not even treated unequal but also a method to bring shame to family. This mindset who do not challenge; treat almost all women in their life with disrespect and abuse. In Indian and other society too, virginity is treated as symbol of honour not only for the girl but to her whole family, and if her virginity is lost before marriage or without the consent of family before marriage, then havoc hits that family. Verbal, physical and mental abuse starts not only from relatives and neighbor but also within the family and can drive them to a limit where they can take the life away from her. As Voltaire said “It is one of the superstitions of the human mind to have imagined that virginity could be a virtue.”
