About The Two Days International Conference

India is unique in its demagogic structure. Being decked up in different diversities, the country has its own challenges to meet the constitutional paradigm. In its 77th year of independence, the constitution has lived up in myriads of societal upheavals while proving to be resilient inevitably. Democracy today is thriving like such in scores of conflicts, which are perniciously affecting the constitutionalism of the country. As in the present trace public opinion is subservient to the parliamentary model of democracy, and defection in political parties is leaving the vibrant repels in the society.

The problem has unfurled to be serious in nature since democracy is embedded within the mobocracy. In connection to such the result has been delipidating. The countrymen are losing their hopes in the democratic model, and in consequence, the arbitrariness of power is rising rampantly. In consequence, the unequivocal faceoff between the judiciary and legislature is visibly jostling against each other. Parliament is sovereign in itself, and the clamour of its sovereign character has continued since independence. But the present democracy is witnessing in its law-making power a challenge and an undemocratic cacophony.

Our constitution has provided for the space for an ordinance, which in need to meet the emergent situation is sought for being employable, but the present practice is deteriorating, where in recent practices laws for the country have been witnessed passing through the ordinance-making power, which in sense is a threat for democracy. The role of the governor has become significant, who is in nature seen playing the role of smothering through political influences. The election commission is subject to that to what extent playing the role independently is again a question of thought.

On the other hand, the judiciary in its sphere of judicial appointment has been in a debate of accountability and checks and balances. The collegium system is in the exchange of criticism and for which the role of appointment is still an unsolved matrix yet. The dictum of judicial primacy has been continuing since 1993. The shift in primacy from the executive to the Chief Justice with the fellow judges with whom the collegium is made has been in question in different democratic platforms. The subject is unsolved yet, and in wonder to meet the solution further, though several of the endeavours are taken from the quarters but the question of maintaining the checks and balances is always at the surface to take the attention on.

The 2015 judgment striking down the National Judicial Appointment Act 2014 in calling for it as ultra vires, has raised the debate of judicial supremacy over legislative primacy. The debate is continuing and is in look for a better system to emerge.

The Right to Privacy in the Puttaswamy case in the year 2017 has been given ratification within the fundamental rights. As technology in the prosperous society is arising blatantly the right to being ratified is apparently squeezed within. Data protection and the concern regarding its access have become a challenge in different spheres. The law in that hemisphere playing the role of a catalyst is the subject of adherence. Since the benign nexus is being drawn inevitably the manner in which social media and the e-contents in it, as well as cloud computing and Google database, are at work in maintaining the prestigious right are the bottlenecks and much in discussion in our regular quest of the democratic affairs that in the manner the privacy be well maintained. It is in a sense, therefore, the subject afloat to be of importance and in vigour regularly while dribbling with the technological heist. As society is growing in its nooks and corners, so is the pragmatic and sovereign ambit of the folks at large.

Much of the Western influences have been already in place, and are in play in today's democratic world. The societal relationship has been in such influences perching above the societal embargo and stipulations. The institution of marriage has undergone much to its changes, and accordingly, the right to choose has become a right of priority, a reflection of which same-sex marriage has become a subject of debate. The institution has seen much of its water being flown down, and in the constitutional crux, the right to marry one wishes is at the zenith of its discussion. The constitutional values and the societal paradigm to an extent at rest have been in question to ratify the sanctity of such marriage. Equivalently, the rights of the men have been rattling, in the realm of their sexual harassment. Protection for them has been the concern and to maintain the quantum of equality and substantiate gender justice constitutionalism is in hoax, which is in need therefore mend carefully to span the societal flow gracefully. Menstruation is a right that has obtained, like other rights in the Western World, a subject of leave from the workplace. In India, the subject is still a challenge and warrants importance, though the matter is in vigilance but the light of the day to meet is still being anticipated.

The list is an unending phenomenon which the democratic vigour is throttling to make its presence successful. The conference in the face of such leaden-headed hurdles is in an attempt to provide an interminable brief of advocacy in finding through its exchange of thoughts the path against the travesty. The importance therefore for the conference is premium which in place would draw brilliant minds to head together towards sparkling the course of redeeming the democratic ethos and its essence successfully.
