Justice Indu Malhotra addressing at AIMA Aspire’s WomenSpeak Session
While people are more aware of their rights now, the courts have also decided to relax the procedural laws that made justice easily accessible to people, said Justice Indu Malhotra, Former Judge of the Supreme Court of India at AIMA Aspire’s WomenSpeak Session.
Public Interest Litigation is an essence. It is a petition filed by a public-spirited person who has no personal interest or animus. He brings an issue concerning a public cause before the courts and the courts are only the Supreme Court and the High Court which exercise writ jurisdiction. And he is not the Dominus Litis of the litigation. Dominus Litis means master of the litigation. Suppose he decides to, you know, remove his name from the proceedings, the proceedings will continue if the court finds merit in it. And he is not an aggrieved person. And the nature of these proceedings is not supposed to be adversarial. That is how PILs were conceived at the threshold. of public law litigation was in the United States in the year 1953 with the judgment in the Brown versus Board of Education case wherein they sought to set aside discrimination, racial discrimination between the Americans and black Americans of African origin who were seeking admission to educational institutions.
Ms Rina Dhaka, AIMA Aspire’s WomenSpeak Session
The things to keep in mind while executing professional fashion are hygiene, presentation, trend and experimentation, said Ms Rina Dhaka, Renowned Fashion Designer, Proprietor and Advisor at AIMA Aspire’s WomenSpeak Session.
I’d say that in a professional setting, appearances matter a lot. Appearance opens doors and appearance opens conversations. In crowded and competitive spaces, it helps to look distinct and intriguing even before speaking. Having a good sartorial sense is a major asset in a professional setting.
Raman Kant Garg at AIMA’s 62nd LeaderSpeak Session
Inequality is prevalent globally as revealed by the statistics, but tax is a tool that keeps it in check to foster fairness in the society, said Mr. Raman Kant Garg, Commissioner of Income Tax India (Exemption) at AIMA’s 62nd LeaderSpeak Session.
I would say that Inequality is a major social, political and economic disruptor. Globally, currently, there is a deep rethinking of taxation philosophies and their role in driving immediate economic growth, creating long-term economic capacity and achieving socio-political stability. The debate about balancing between driving growth through lower taxation and striving for equity through higher redistributive taxes is occupying the minds of most economists and policymakers. Since the early 90s, the taxation trend has been towards cutting corporate and personal income taxes to really encourage production and consumption.
Mr Harsh Vardhan Shringla at AIMA’s 8th National Leadership Conclave 2023.
Indian Presidency for G20 under PM Narendra Modi would strengthen the grouping at the global level as PM’s views are highly valued by the global leaders, said Mr Harsh Vardhan Shringla, Chief Coordinator, G20 and Former Foreign Secretary, at AIMA’s 8th National Leadership Conclave 2023.
I am a strong votary of the human-centric approach to globalization, formulated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This commendable approach is gradually being accepted and widely appreciated across the globe. The question that arises is how do we take this approach forward? In my opinion, it is an ongoing effort that requires continuous work and collaboration. One notable platform, where we are witnessing the implementation of this human-centric approach, is the Quad, an alliance that focuses on key areas of mutual interests. With India assuming the presidency of the G20, I anticipate further advancements in this direction. The G20, with its global influence, can pave the way for a human-centric globalization.
