Magazine Description

In this issue

Law of the Land When Devendra Mishra, a lawyer and RTI activist, looked into a seemingly unclaimed plot of prime land in Bhopal, he found that the Madhya Pradesh government had leased it at an exceptionally low rate to a cooperative housing society for judges—which included a retired judge who oversaw an official investigation into the Vyapam scandal. The same rate, MD Hizbullah and Atul Dev investigate, had been approved for two societies of journalists too. “Why would the government want to give land to judges as throwaway prices?” Mishra asked. And why would the judges—and the journalists—accept it? Also in this issue: How to write a saas-bahu saga; The robber gangs of Rajmahal; Unrest in Kashmir reveals the failures of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party; Why experts and activists are up in arms over the grant of a patent for a blockbuster hepatitis C drug; A rickshaw driver by day, stand-up comedian by night; Faiz Ahmed Faiz in Beirut
