  1. Dear Esteemed Members of the August Forum, I had filed a complaint on Human Rights Commission, Haryana regarding the human rights violation in the premises of District Courts. I complained(Copy of undersigned Complaint Enclosed): QUOTE " 1) There are no seats to sit for clients/litigants in Gurgaon District Courts and even for advocates which results In thronging the doors of the Court resulting in hampering Court Work; 2) Senior Citizens who are ill and physically challenged have no seating arrangements in District Courts in Gurgaon; 3) There are a couple of toilets in District Gurgaon Courts for a visiting citizens of around 2000 people daily which are so unhygienic that it is difficult to use these toilets: " ' 4) There is no litigant bench at district courts in Gurgaon; 5) There is no Case Status Display in District Courts; 6) The Courts are housed in bathrooms in District Gurgaon Court Complex thus living no space even to stand in these courts; 7) There is no ramp system for physically challenged citizens of Gurgaon in District Gurgaon Courts and no lift for elderly and physically challenged citizen's of Gurgaon to visit second floor Court rooms in Gurgaon District Courts. The above reasons contribute to human rights violations in District Courts in Gurgaon and-as such pray to Hon'bte Commission to pass appropriate orders under relevant section of the said Human Rights Act as deem fit by Hon'ble Commission." UNQUOTE The Hon'ble State Human Commission Haryana took cognizance of undersigned complaint bearing number 1064 of 2014 and on hearing held on 13th Oct 2014 and issued notice to Deputy Commissioner, Gurgaon for submission of reply/report in eight weeks and next date of hearing was fixed for 12th Feb 2015. (Copy of Order Enclosed) On 12th Feb 2015, the double Bench of Hon'ble Human Rights Commission ordered that in view of serious nature of Complaint, the Deputy Commissioner of Gurgaon to file reply/report within four weeks and next date of hearing on 08th May 2015.(Copy of Order Enclosed) The matter is of having larger public interest and is clear cut case of Human Rights Violations as the conditions in District Courts premises in Gurgaon is pathetic and situation there inhuman.

  2. The Economic Survey of 2014-15 had given Maharashtra the dubious distinction of having the largest number of stalled projects in the country. RTI documents obtained by activist Venkatesh Nayak shows that only 13 of these projects were stalled due to problems of land acquisition. Majority of the projects were stalled due to unfavourable market conditions. Read at: Less than 1% projects stalled over land issues: RTI finding | The Indian Express
  3.

R C Singhal, who was the special public information officer (SPIO) in Gurgaon in the department of irrigation and is now posted in Faridabad, has now been directed to appear before the commission personally in the next hearing on February 16.

  5. The MP State Information Commission has taken a very stern view of the failure of the food and drugs administration (FDA) officials to provide information related to adulterated food under the right to information (RTI) Act and issued show-cause notices to three officers. During a hearing on Wednesday, information commissioner Atmadeep directed that show-cause notices should be issued to the chief medical and health officer (CMHO) of Bhind district Rakesh Sharma (who is also ex-officio deputy director, FDA) and food security officers of Ashu Kushwaha of Sagar and Shivraj Pawak of Hoshangabad.

  6. I came across this details in Jaago Re website (http://www.jaagore.com/issues/differently-abled/details) ____________________________________________________________________________ Who Are The Differently Abled? What comes to your mind when someone says ‘differently abled’ people? In simple parlance they are seen as handicapped people with birth defects – the blind who will always need assistance crossing the road or the lesser fortunate who’ll be bound to a wheelchair all their life, a ‘special’ child who has to go to a special school and more such stereotypes that are only reinforced over the years due to ignorance & deep set prejudices. But at the end of the day, the ‘differently abled’ are just people. Causes Lack of Opportunity: If you had to choose between hiring someone with a physical disability and another without, who would you go with? Most employers would choose the former because widely speaking a disability is still considered a weakness, and not regarded as a ‘different’ ability. Whatever happened to employers who gave merit and talent their much required due? And on what grounds are opportunities even presented? Are they even justified? Traditional Beliefs: Let’s face it. Even in the most advanced cities, people with disabilities aren’t considered ‘normal’. In many rural areas they are disrespected and are completely devoid of job opportunities forcing some of them into taking up jobs as ‘freak shows’ in travelling circuses. In some places in South India, the ancient custom of burying children with disabilities neck deep in sand during an eclipse to rid them of all their evils is still very common. One part of the country might be advancing leaps and bounds but it really holds no value if the other end is still living in the fifteenth century. Discrimination: 45 year old Shyamlal Guha who lost both his legs in a train accident a few years ago looked for a job in a bank, but didn’t get a favorable reply from most of the places he approached. His disappointment is echoed by others with physical disabilities who complain that despite having the capabilities for the job they are asking for AND the required documents (a pre-requisite to avail Government facilities), they STILL have to deal with severe discrimination. Accessibility: If you know of a public space that isn’t being accommodating enough of the disabled bring it to the notice of those who are in charge and ensure that something is done about it. Three out of five malls will not have the infrastructure that a blind, mute or handicapped person would need. A couple of years ago Bangalore was one of the first metros in the country to wake up to the need of making their infrastructure disabled friendly. While today, most of the bigger malls have followed suit, the smaller ones are just realizing the importance of this move. Its not just public spaces like malls, even offices or residential buildings don’t have facilities for differently abled people. Effects Undiscovered Talent Pool: The Dalit farmer turned revolutionary, Bant Singh’s daughter was raped by the land owners in 2000 battled the aristocracy long and hard to fight for justice. In the process, he almost got beaten to death and today has lost both his limbs, an arm and is wheel chair bound. Still, he tries to draw people’s attention to real issue by writing poetry and singing about inequality and injustice. In November 2009 he visited Mumbai city to speak at a conference dealing with Music as a tool for Social Change. Examples like these are far and many. Do you really think that in a country where 60 million people are disabled, there isn’t a single person who could go on to be a great writer, philosopher or scientist? Lack of Confidence: When someone is born with a handicap, then treated differently from the others, it builds an undesirable inferiority complex. This leads to them developing a contorted self image fuelled by weakness and self pity. When this is compounded by all the sidelining they’re subject to in society, it leads them to believe that they’re greatly disadvantaged. If this attitude is bred over a period of time, it gets very difficult for them to develop any amount of self confidence to set goals for themselves, let alone achieve them. Conflict: Even the differently abled sections of society need to have a voice and be treated equally. This means that there should ideally be equal provisions made for them as for everyone else. In Mizoram, for example, there is no provision made for the differently abled people in polling booths at the time of elections. This means that an entire section of the society can’t vote or have their voice heard. There might be many other places in the country where this happens, but we don’t even hear of it. If we look at this from a holistic perspective, it reflects back on us as a nation that’s regressing instead of progressing. Solutions Employment Opportunities: Before you decide to take on something big, ask yourself, if someone with a handicap came to me for a job, how much thought would I put into my decision? And how much of it would deal with his disability and efficiency? Ideally, jobs have to be based on merit. Corporates need to realize this and keep a certain percentage aside for people with disabilities. Remember this while hiring domestic help in your home or in your office such as a maid, a peon etc. Empathy: The most important need of the hour is to empathize, not sympathize with these people. Very often what we tend to do is offer them extra help and talk to these people in a particular way, which they’re used to but don’t really like. The minute we do that, it’s our way of saying, ‘we feel sorry for you because you’re so unfortunate and that’s why we need to go the extra mile and treat you with more care’. Instead, a better attitude would be to treat them just as you would anybody else, assist them whenever they ‘ask’ for help and aide them to stand on their feet, an attitude that will actually make them feel like a part of regular society. Education and Awareness: As the age old adage says, prevention is better than cure. A big proportion of the cases of people with disabilities are those that could have been prevented - by taking a vaccine, a dose, a shot. The Government probably needs to do more in ensuring that people are educated about health care but you can also contribute by doing simple things like talking to your domestic help about vaccines that they or their kids absolutely need to get e.g.: Polio, TB etc. The other thing that you can do is read up and learn about the various kinds of illness and disorders there are so that the next time someone calls a person with Down’s Syndrome ‘mad’ you can actually correct and educate them about the condition. 5 Ways Empathize: Exercise empathy and sensitivity. If you see a disabled person not being given due respect or being treated the way he/she should be, stop, intervene and educate the party concerned. Educate: Teach people how they can deal with those who are disabled or impaired. Learn how to do this by spending time with someone with a disability. Push for Change: Draw the Government’s attention to the concerns of the Differently Abled. They too need assistance and a voice to fight for their rights, so get a group of friends together and lobby for their cause. Job Opportunity: If you’re on a hiring committee, don’t discriminate against someone with a disability. Everyone deserves a fair chance based on merit. Volunteer: There are a number of NGOs that work the differently abled, so volunteer and find out what it feels like to be around someone with a disability.
