UK court's decree a blow to Boris govt
The landmark decision was unanimous when eleven judges in Britain's highest court delivered a momentous blow to Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government.
The justices ruled the Prime Minister's decision to advise the Queen to suspend Parliament from the second week of September "was unlawful" because it had the effect of preventing Parliament from carrying out its constitutional functions as a legislature.
However, some legal experts worry that the British judgment could set a troubling precedent, opening the door to a form of judicial review that is widely accepted in the US, which has a Supreme Court that actively interprets the Constitution.
Britain, by contrast, relies on an unwritten set of traditions and conventions that have treated a sovereign Parliament as the supreme law of the land.
Once the courts venture into the political sphere and begin passing judgment on Parliament's actions, they say, there is no going back.
For democracies like India, the ruling is a signal that an independent judiciary can find the leeway to rein in the executive with numerical majority when parliamentary conventions are undermined.
Normally, courts steer clear of political decisions taken by the executive.

Centre should promote tourism in a big way
In view of the World Tourism Day on Friday, the government of India should keep its promises made during the time of budget introduction in Parliament for promotion of tourism.
After the formation of the Central government, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman assured to the people of India that they would recognize 17 most important tourist places in the country and modernise them for generating revenue and employment.
I appeal to the government of India to understand the cultural, economic and regional aspects and the lifestyle of people in order to promote tourism in a big way.
In addition to that, promoting of tourism has many benefits as it creates employment opportunities and reduce regional feelings. Due to tourism, one can improve physical strength and psychological thinking.
It is welcome on part of the government to allot Rs 2,200 crore for promoting tourism for this financial year. On this occasion, the Central government is conducting the World Tourism Summit in Delhi.
The Centre and Andhra Pradesh State government should concentrate on developing different types of tourism such as religious tourism, medical tourism, heli tourism, village tourism, spiritual tourism, eco-tourism, sports tourism, water sports and adventure tourism etc.
As all we know Jammu and Kashmir is wonderful and a famous place for site seeing, and due to the abrogation of Article 370, the scope of tourism widened there, and employment opportunities are also opened.
We expect that new initiatives and business opportunities will start very soon. But the government should take all measures and provide safety and security to the tourists. It's also time to promote handicrafts of people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The government of India should take challenge for promoting tourism in Jammu and Kashmir and also other parts of India and particularly, in Andhra Pradesh places should be identified for promoting tourism in all 13 districts.
Minister for Tourism in AP Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao should prepare comprehensive guidelines for promoting tourism on the occasion of World Tourism Day.

Introduce Sanskrit at degree, PG levels
Nowadays, more than 10 lakh students are studying Sanskrit as their second language at intermediate and degree level. So, BRAOU and IGNOU should also initiate Sanskrit at graduation and PG level.
Because there is no regional study centre of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan of New Delhi in Telangana State. Due to this inconvenience, several Sanskrit students are abandoning their inclination towards the language.
There are number of retired Sanskrit scholars in the State. The UGC can utilise their valuable services by beginning the BA and MA Sanskrit at BRAOU and IGNOU centres throughout the State.
As there is no Sanskrit University, it would be an added advantage for Sanskrit students. since the Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetham is now under AP jurisdiction, it is time to establish a Sanskrit University in Telangana.
Can't we study Sanskrit under the motto of 'education at your doorstep'?
