Description

Opinions are like flare, which can turn either way: they can spread like wild fire or encapsulate themselves within the bounds of personal integrity, and thus illuminate. I started writing opinions in the year 2008 through my blogs. I admit at times I did go wild with unsubstantiated accusations and surmises, leading to risky speculations and irresponsible opinions. Recently, I published a comprehensive book of my writings entitled "Writings @ Ankur Mutreja", and the present book is a short selection of my opinions presented therein with emphasis on responsible writing. I am an advocate by profession; therefore, most of my opinions have a tint of law; in the first part, the expression is simple; so, it is for lay persons who wont mind a little exercise of mind in the legal arena; whereas, in the second part, I have gone whole hog with law, and I admit those without formal legal training may find it convenient to ignore. My style of writing is terse and pointed, but at times I have gone overboard like in one particular opinion on Aarushi murder, where emotions and logic intermingled in an expanded narrative. Rights, especially privacy and equality, are my area of focus; therefore most of my opinions herein; i.e., the ones discussing Brain Research, NCTC, Sting Operations, LGBTs, Prostitution, SC/ST quotas, and AADHAR/NPR; are focused on these two areas. In my selection, I have tried steering clear of politics, but politics is nevertheless all encompassing; however, one opinion on tussle between Delhi Police and AAP is majorily political; another political opinion, but with a strong emphasis on law, is the discussion of Zakia Jaffrey case. There were few very big events in the recent past; one amongst them is the Nirbhaya murder, and I have also discussed it, though my take is slightly different: I think the murder has been manipulated by the vested interests. I am a resident of an unauthorized colony; therefore, my opinion on Unauthorized Colonies has found place in the present selection; though I admit had the case been different, I wouldnt have included it; so please bear with my little bias. Though I have no expertise in international affairs, I have taken a plunge into it albeit within the ambit of my legal training; the topics discussed are Indo-Pak relationship and Julian Assange. Finally, in the second part, I have discussed various judgments and laws. I would recommend anybody to read at least my critique of Aarushi Judgement. Other than that I have critiqued Binayak Sen Judgement and Aruna Shaunbaug Judgement. In the second part, I have also critiqued RTI Act and Amendments in IPC post Nirbhaya murder. Enjoy Reading! Ankur Mutreja.
