"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well."

-Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.

Disrespect of Parliament from within

Yesterday's The Hindu carried an evaluation of Indian Parliament by Vidya Subrahmaniam. Incidentally, a Private Member Bill was proposed to ensure that the Lok Sabha meets at least for a minimum of 100 days. Find the news here. See a report by PRS Legislative Research with statistics of the 2009 Parliament sessions here.
