"Power Tends To Corrupt, and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely"
-John Acton

India is the largest functional democracy in the world, and the Constitution of India is unique in each and every way. The Constitution of India is a mammoth piece of document; in fact the Indian Constitution is the longest in the world. As of now is has 441 Articles and 12 Schedules. It is probably the longest of the organic laws now extant in the world. The Constitution of India confers upon India the status of Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic. It allows us to elect our representatives and to form a government to makes laws and enforce them.
The Constitution of India guarantees to the people certain basic human rights and freedoms, such as, equal protection of laws, freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship and religion, freedom of assembly and association, freedom to move freely and to reside and settle anywhere in India, freedom to follow any occupation, trade or business, freedom of person, freedom against double jeopardy and against ex post facto laws. These rights are knows as Fundamental Rights and are envisaged in Part III of the Constitution of India.
A person can claim Fundamental Rights against the state subject to the state imposing some permissible restrictions in the interest of social control. The grounds for imposing these restrictions on Fundamental Rights are expressly mentioned in the Constitution itself and, therefore, these rights can be abridged only to the extent laid down.
The Ramlila Incident was a very unfortunate event. The Supreme Court of India took suo moto cognizance of the case and gave a new dimension to the Fundamental Rights stating that the right to sleep peacefully was a part was Article 21 and thus a Fundamental Right.
The brief facts concerning the incident are that Baba Ramdev wanted the government to bring all the…...

Critical Incident

...My chosen toolkit is: MCI personal competencies model Summary of critical incident At the Residential Weekend I have noticed the critical incident, which was interesting to me. It has taken place after “Building bridges” task. Our group was giving feedbacks. The positive feedback from others about my contribution to the team impressed me, as most of the time I felt myself disengaged, not providing any tangible support for the task and disappointed as a result. The evidence for this was X‟s negative part of feedback: “Don‟t do actions, sometimes too observant”. However, most team members pointed out, that I was helpful and supportive by showing good listening skills and generating others‟ ideas. The facilitator‟s feedback highlighted my ability to „brighten up the room by good inner-spirit‟. It got me thinking, that I really may be good at inspiring others. I start to understand myself and my preferable teamwork role better. It does not mean that I am useless for the team. I believe, I can participate in the group work in what follows. I can listen, advise and provide support. I should not think less of myself. How does this reflect the findings of your chosen self analysis toolkit? To evaluate this critical incident and support findings with theory, I filled in MCI (Management Charter Initiative) personal competence model questionnaire. This toolkit provides better self-understanding of work within diverse groups. According to results of this model, my „Acting...

Incident at Oglala

...Name Instructor Date Course Incident at Oglala Incident at Oglala is a 1992 film is a good but also biased documentary which talks about the murder of two FBI agents at the pine ridge Indian Reservation in the year 1975. The film purports to show that one convicted suspect who was referred to as Peltier Leonard didn’t commit this crime. In the year 1975, the FBI agents Coler Jack and Williams Ron pursued a robbery suspect into the reservation. Within few minutes, there was a gunfight which was between the agents and American Indian activists whereby William and Coler were murdered. There was a massive manhunt which ensued. One member of AIM Leonard was convicted and is now serving his sentence in Leavenworth prison. This film narrated by Redford Robert will convince most that Leonard is innocent of the murder. The movie however fails to point out that the suspects that the FBI were chasing for armed stopped their vehicle in an open field. Incident in INCIDENT AT OGLALA must be viewed not only with an open mind, but also with larger grain of salt. This film according to me is a good film which tries to figure out and show its viewers on how some people in the society are victimized and convicted in the expense of their innocence. it also shows people on how to go about justice in a society and also helping people on how to tackle some issues. Benefits The film provides a specific social service in trying to prove both the unjust imprisonment of Leonard and make its......

Major Incidents

...this report I am going to analyse the importance of inter-agency emergency planning for major incidents It is very important that public services work together and plan how to deal with major incidents, because it makes their job more efficient. They can get the job done quicker, because they know their roles and responsibilities, so not messing around, but doing their duties and run smoothly at the scene. Planning gives them opportunity to get more training so they will know their roles even better so it makes their job easier and safer as they will get some experience in some kind of situations. They will have knowledge how it could look in real major incident, so they would not get stressed so much if they are newly employed. Also it saves some money when dealing with major incidents as they will be better in their roles, because of training through planning. Another benefit is that because of planning, they would know what equipment they are responsible for and they will bring it to the scene so when it will be needed, they will have it. The first responding agency is always Police and they are responsible for sending other agencies to the scene, protecting the scene – setting cordons around. Inner cordon - operational command – officers that deals with the incident at the scene. Outer cordon - tactical command - creates tactics for operational command how to deal with the incident. Lack of organisations means that they would not be sure what their roles are, they......

Critical Incident

...Critical Incident: Late Cardizem Drip Salomon Rivas Purdue University Calumet NUR 48200-09 Critical Incident: Late Cardizem Drip The incident I will be writing this paper about actually just happened at my new job. I received my nursing degree last March and started working in LTC last summer. After 6 months experience, I was lucky enough to get hired as a new nurse on a telemetry/ step down ICU floor. I started this position on January 5, 2015 and will be finishing my one to one orientation next week. As the weeks have passed and my patient load has picked up, I have been able to work more and more independently while my preceptor attends to other patients or matters. If all I had to do was assess, pass medications and chart, I would be fine but as we all know, critical thinking has to prevail and careful watch has to be of utmost importance for such sick patients. On the night of the near critical incident, I was taking care of 6 patients. It was the very beginning of the shift and I was getting report as my preceptor was attending to a patient that was crashing fast. She told me to just continue with report and start my night and she would fill me in later as this patient had to be sent to the ICU. I finished getting report on my 5 patients and was sitting down to organize my night when my preceptor came over to me and asked what I was told in report. When I got to the new admit that had just come to the floor......

Autobiographical Incident

...Autobiographical Incident Have you ever felt so alone? Feeling nostalgic like you’re in a deep isolation and despair? Feeling like no one can be there for you when you feel the earth is against you? I did. Ever since my parents separated, my whole world changed and I can never do anything to bring back those precious moments. I was only eight years old back then. If you could only imagine how an eight year old girl desperately cry in a corner without anyone being there for her. A young girl yearning for a parent’s presence and desperate for playful moments with her siblings. Well I cannot bring back those times because you can never bring back time. My childhood memories were indeed the best memories I will ever treasure. Those blissful moments when we go out on a Sunday as our family day to attend the mass and after mass, my father would treat us to our favorite fast food chain where we play and take pictures. Every time I reminisce those moments, I remember a girl, so happy and jolly, thinking only how happy her family is, without thinking any problem because her parents never let her see how bad their relationship is going through. Until I found myself having a long night trip to Nueva Vizcaya with my mother and my youngest brother. I didn’t know what was happening back then. All I know is I am thousand miles away from my father and my siblings. I tried to ask my mother but she chose to tell me nothing until I discovered that we will live in Nueva Vizcaya and I will......

Cyber Incident

...Boston Children’s Hospital – Possible “Anonymous” Attack Cyber Incident On April 24, 2014, the Boston Children’s Hospital reported they had been under a cyberattack from an unknown source for the previous four days. This paper will focus on the details of the cyber security incident, the impact of the attack, the consequences, and a brief explanation of the mitigation steps the hospital has taken post incident. The Boston Children’s Hospital was a victim of a cyberattack between the dates of April 20 and April 25, 2014. The cyberattack on the hospital focused on bringing down the hospital’s internal website – used by hospital personnel to check appointments, test results, and other patient information (Wen, 2014). The hackers used a distributed denial of service approach attack, which consisted of a bombardment of traffic to the hospitals web page, causing it to crash and become unusable to all hospital staff. The hospital has insisted that no patient data or information has been compromised due to these cyberattacks (Farrell, 2014). Law enforcement was notified of the attacks, but it is unconfirmed whether investigations were started. It is suspected the attackers were a part of the well-known hacker network “Anonymous”. Even though no evidence exists to prove this group is behind the attack on the Children’s Hospital, the incident has all the markings of a typical Anonymous cyberattack. The group typically targets Internet pages of large organizations and......

I asked David to calm down and he became even more belligerent towards me while me son observed. This in turn frustrated me and then the exchange of words began. Eventually, David went inside his apt and came back out ranting and raving, and more words were exchanged, David then threw a 24in two-prong fork at me, and charged down the stairs in a combative manner. I didn’t hesitate to prepare for a confrontation, but I warned him that I wasn’t going to allow him to bully me as he had been doing all the other tenants in this vicinity.

An Unforgettable Incident

...Certain incidents so impress us that they leave an indelible mark on our memory. I was once involved in an incident of which I shall always have vivid recollections. The incident occurred when I visited a village in India together with my parents, sometime during my holidays last year. Early in the morning on the day the incident occurred, I was talking with a few of my new friends in that village. All of a sudden, a boy of my age came rushing towards us to break the news that violence had broken out in the neighborhood. Alarmed at this news, we began to protect ourselves, and before long the violence spread like wild fire throughout our area. I was a little confused at first for I had no idea about the cause of the outbreak of violence there. One of my friends told me that the area had been notorious for such occurrence owing to rivalry between two parties. Each party tried to destroy the influence of the other in that area, and the bad blood that existed between them had caused several deaths and great misery to innocent people for a long time. Official influence could not be exercised effectively in this area owing to its remoteness from the centers of authority. The members of the rival parties therefore enjoyed almost complete freedom of action. The police arrived only when there was news of violence, and often long after the damage has been done. While I was listening to this account of facts and events, the situation suddenly took an ugly turn. A man who had been......
