Plea in Indian SC to stay release of film Indu Sarkar

A woman, who claims to be the biological daughter of late Sanjay Gandhi, Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the release of the movie 'Indu Sarkar'.
The movie is scheduled to be released this Friday.
The counsel appearing for the petitioner mentioned the matter before a three-judge bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra and alleged that the Madhur Bhandarkar-directed movie is "full of concocted facts and is totally derogatory".
The bench also comprising Justices Amitava Roy and A M Khanwilkar refused to give a date for hearing the plea.
"You give your memo. We will see to it. We are not giving any date," the bench said.
Petitioner Priya Singh Paul's counsel alleged in the court that the movie contains "derogatory facts" to malign the image of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
The counsel told that the movie was scheduled to hit the screens on July 28 and they are seeking a stay on its release.
The plea has challenged the July 24 order of the Bombay High Court dismissing her plea to stay the release of the movie.
The high court had said that the petitioner had not made out any case for the court to interfere and stay release of the movie after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) already granted certificate to the movie.
The Bombay High Court had also noted that no acknowledged descendant of Sanjay Gandhi has raised objection to the film.

Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-Ã -vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.
Unanswered questions on recent leftist alliance
Although they seem to be very much communist while in opposition, whether about the 'Indian semi-colonial status' in Nepal or American hegemony, this has never been evident while they actually come into power and rule Nepal.

What we need to learn from Thailand?
Thailand is a developing country. But it seemed like a developed country at first sight. It is hard to believe that Thailand is a developing country. There are big buildings, and clean and broad roads. The city is clean with no trace of pollution.
