am It sometimes emerges as an attempt to shame governments private institutions places of consumption for compromise of the rights of the users Related News By: Nishant Shah column Within the online space where wonderments often run rife and conspiracy theories travel at the speed of light there are many dark recesses where netizens half-jokingly self-referentially in a spirit of part-truth part-exaggeration often wonder on what the real reason is for the internet to exist One suggestion and probably the most persuasive one drawing from the Broadway musical Avenue Q is that the internet was made for porn Positing a competing argument is a clowder of cat lovers who insist that the internet was made for cats Or at least it is definitely made of cats From the first internet memes like LOL Cats (and then subsequently Grumpy Cat Ceiling Cat and Hipster Kitty) which had pictures of cats used for strong social cultural and political commentary to Caturday — a practice where users on the Web’s largest unmoderated discussion board 4Chan post pictures of cats every Saturday — cats are everywhere I want to add to this list and suggest that the internet was meant for “shame” With the explosion of the interactive Web more people getting access to mobile computing devices and more websites inviting users to write reviews leak pictures expose videos and reveal more personal and private information online there seems to be no doubt that we live in the age of digital shaming It sometimes emerges as an attempt to shame governments private institutions places of consumption for compromise of the rights of the users Anything from denial of service and corruption in government offices to bad food and substandard goods in restaurants and malls is now reported in an attempt to shame the people responsible for it This kind of “citizen journalism” allows for individual voices and experiences to be heard and documented and the people in question are forced to be accountable for their jobs From fascinating websites like IPaidABribecom to restaurant review sites like Zomato we have seen an interesting phenomenon of “naming and shaming” that gives voice to individual discontent and anger And so commonplace has this become that most managers of different services and goods track respond and mitigate the situation often offering apologies and freebies to make up for that one bad experience Most big organisations have Twitter handles that function in a similar way addressing grievances of users in real time and helping to deliver better services and products It is a new era of granular accountability that ensures that individual acts of discrimination neglect or just disservice get reported and have direct impact on those responsible for it On the other end of the spectrum of this call for transparent and accountable structures is the phenomenon of shaming and cyber bullying that is also increasing especially with digital natives who spend more time online On social networking sites it has become almost passé for personal and sensitive information to be leaked in order to shame and expose a person’s weaknesses and vulnerabilities Especially for young teens who might be in a disadvantaged position — for reasons of sexual orientation location practices or interests — the shaming through exposing their private information often creates extremely traumatic conditions even leading people to take their lives Shaming takes up particularly dire forms on websites and platforms that are designed to leak this kind of information Hunter Moore who has recently earned the title of being the most hated man on the internet was the founder of a revenge-porn website which invited male users to reveal sexual and embarrassing pictures of their former girlfriends and even spouses to reveal them in compromising positions and shame them for being “sluts” Moore’s website has been shut down now and he is facing multiple charges of felony in the US but that one site was just the tip of the iceberg Slut shaming and trying to humiliate women has become a strong underground practice on the dark web Hidden by anonymity and the security that the Web can sometimes offer people betray the trust of their friends and lovers and expose them to be punished by voyeuristic audiences The aesthetic also embedded in peer-to-peer platforms like chatroulete or snapchat where people often engage in sexting is also becoming common in popular media The ability to spy to capture private images and videos and expose the people who violate some imagined moral code has dangerous implications for the future of the Web and our own private lives And as more of it goes unpunished and gets naturalised in our everyday digital practices it is time to realise that the titillation it offers through scandal is far outweighed by the growing stress and grief it causes to victims While there are some values to public shaming that ask for more transparency and accountability we need to reflect on how it is creating societies of shame n For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express AppBy: Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: September 2 2017 4:08 am Bombay High Court Top News The Bombay High Court Friday said the amendment to the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules 2000 by way of which the Maharashtra government had done away with existing silence zones was “ex-facie unconstitutional” Granting an interim stay on the August 10 notification of the Centre through which the amendment came into force a full bench headed by Justice A S Oka said not seeking suggestions and objections prior to issuing the notification — as mandated under the rules — made the government’s exercise of power “manifestly unreasonable” The interim stay granted by the court on the notification means that silence zones as earlier identified — an area of no less than 100 meters around educational institutions courts and hospitals — would continue to exist and exceeding the prescribed noise limits in these zones would amount to a violation of the Noise Pollution Rules The court was of the view that with the Centre’s notification doing away with the silence zones it would be possible to permit the use of loudspeakers as close as 5 metres or 10 metres from a school hospital or a court Citing the view taken by the Supreme Court the full bench held that the constitutional right to life covered the right to live in peace If a human being has to live in dignity he/she cannot be compelled to listen to unwanted sound the court said citing the apex court With the court’s decision coming during Ganeshotsav festivities in the city the use of loudspeakers in silence zones may now attract prosecution The state and the Centre urged the court to stay its order but the full bench declined it The court however clarified that the government may not proceed with prosecutions for violation of noise pollution rules for the next four weeks Under the Centre’s August 10 amendment the state government was tasked with earmarking silence zones Prior to the notification silence zones in the state had been identified on the basis of a Bombay High Court ruling of 2016 The state had informed the court last month that in light of the Centre’s notification no silence zone now existed in Maharashtra and the government would have to undertake a fresh exercise to identify them Intervenor in the case anti-noise pollution activist Sumaira Abdulali of Awaaz Foundation had contested the notification through lawyer Birendra Saraf Her plea was placed for hearing before a full bench of Justice Oka Justice Anoop Mohta and Justice Riyaz Chagla The state had contended that staying the notification and bringing back the erstwhile silence zones would lead to law and order problems However when the court asked the government pleader to point out instances of law and order problems since the silence zones came into effect he was unable to do so “The government pleader said that there is no material to show that silence zones had led to a law and order situation” the court noted It added that after the court’s 2016 ruling Ganpati and Navratri festivals were celebrated in the city and the government had not said that it had created law and order situations A bunch of petitions pertaining to noise pollution cases was being heard by a bench of Justices Oka and Chagla The bench had earlier disagreed with the state over disbanding of silence zones It had said that the government would first have to seek modification of the court’s 2016 order However last week the state had sought transfer of all noise pollution matters from the bench headed by Justice Oka alleging that he nursed a “serious bias” against the state machinery Chief Justice Manjula Chellur transferred the matter to a special bench of Justice Anoop V Mohta and Justice G S Kulkarni but later withdrew the decision The petitions were placed before the same bench of Justices Oka and Chagla afterthe state tendered an unconditional apology The petitions challenging the constitutionality of the August 10 notification however were placed before a full bench Granting the interim stay on the notification the full bench has now listed the case on October 6 for fixing of a final hearing date For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App

amid much media speculation Related News Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s relationship is no less than a jigsaw puzzle After dating for around eight years the two silently parted ways amid much media speculation Given the demand of the hectic promotional schedule of their upcoming film Jagga Jasoos there’s a high chance the two will come together to share the same platform What kind of a vibe will the two share during promotions Will they bury their past hatchet Can Ranbir pull out his exes-turned-friends act on the same lines as Deepika Padukone for the sake of promoting Jagga Jasoos with Katrina too One can of course expect some awkwardness between the two But before we see Ranbir and Katrina courting a volley of questions from media during the promotions (if they do it together) Katrina has dropped a behind the scenes video on her Facebook account The contents of video surprise you as the song in question was reportedly shot after their alleged break-up While you expect them to have a ‘cold’ vibe on the sets (as was reported during the time that they were not getting along) their off-screen chemistry suggests otherwise We can see Katrina Kaif teasing Ranbir in the video and there is ample amount of comfort between the two on the sets But what puzzles is Ranbir’s mannerisms on the set If you missed it we want to let you know that there is a short glimpse of both Katrina and Ranbir during the video standing aloof and barely talking to each other What is also visible is a direct communication gap between two stars This is unlike Ranbir who is otherwise very warm with his co-stars If you want to know what we are talking about just go back when Ranbir and Anushka promoted their film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Ranbir has so far always looked at ease with himself during film promotions with any co-star even including Deepika Padukone Ranbir minus Katrina has always been about an easy open frank person The actor’s demeanour changes around Katrina The couple always had a relationship of hide and seek with the paparazzi The otherwise frank Ranbir gradually turned self-restraint during his social interactions while dating Katrina Post their break-up the actor has become more easygoing as reported by many media outlets Both Katrina and Ranbir haven’t openly spoken about their much-speculated break-up While the video shared by Katrina suggests that all is well between the two actors but we want to know how much is it for real and how much is it for the sake of promotions For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online

Ministerial ambitions as the mere wish of her party workers She is now taking her ‘good friend’ Modi head on as the polling date for Tamil Nadu looms large "Who is a better administrator Is it Gujarat’s Modi or this Tamil Nadu lady" asked Jayalalithaa in her last campaign speech for the polling season “Tamil Nadu’s lady is better than Gujarat’s Modi in providing better administration in all spheres of governance Tamil Nadu’s growth story is much more inclusive it is one in which the poor have a role to play” she said PTI Although she has already made comparisons between the Tamil Nadu model and the Gujarat model this rally marks the first time that she has drawn a direct comparison between herself and Narendra Modi in a head to head personality battle So what do the comments imply Is the Jayalalithaa – Modi friendship on rocky ground The short answer is no Firstpost editor G Pramod Kumar had earlier said Jayalalithaa’s attacks were nothing more than public posturing with Jayalalithaa taking care not to attack him too strongly Writing after Jayalalithaa attacked both the Congress and the BJP over Cauvery he said: Jaya could have picked on the BJP on many other fronts including secularism its manifesto and the prime ministerial choice of Modi; but instead she chose to make her punch softer by clubbing it with Congress And the issue she chose was very specific to the state’s interests In other words she betrayed no political difference with the BJP and didn’t express any deep-rooted ideological difference or political ire against the party And here again we see that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has not made any personal attack on her Gujarat counterpart It is noticeable that she has chosen to take him on over the issues that he is contesting on – namely development and growth as opposed to communalism which everyone else has been shouting about from the rooftops It would have been extremely easy for Jayalalithaa who has not hesitated to use the communal card before – most notably to ban Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopamfrom playing in theatres across the state – to do just this The fact that she has not In fact she’s being much nicer to Modi than his own alleged counterparts like Praveen Togadia and Giriraj Singh who have been playing the communal card with aplomb – and at great detriment to Modi’s campaign prompting him to tweet out against such ‘irresponsible and petty’ statements Her ‘attack’ against Modi – if it can even be called that – could come instead perhaps from a fear that the BJP could steal away precious voteshare from her party After tying up with the DMDK the BJP now has a half-rainbow alliance which might turn out to be stronger than the DMK in the northern and western regions In alliance with the the AIADMK the DMDK had outsmarted the DMK in the 2011 assembly elections and had become the opposition party in the state assembly It had scored 29 seats against the DMK’s 23 As pointed out in an earlier article: The significance of the BJP DMDK PMK and MDMK alliance is the parties’ individual vote-share and the possibility of their synergistic expansion when they are together The DMDK and the PMK had 8 and 52 percent vote-share respectively in the 2011 assembly elections while the MDMK didn’t contest the elections In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections the DMDK had polled 103 percent and PMK 64 per cent of total votes While the MDMK scored 37 per cent in 2009 the BJP accounted for less than 3 per cent in both the elections Jayalalithaa is simply trying to ensure that she remains important in a post poll scenario In the world of politics friendship is only between the powerful and the relevant – as Lalu Prasad learned to his detriment in Bihar That Jayalalithaa is well placed these polls is widely acknowledged But her ambitions are high She wants to win all the seats from Tamil Nadu so that she can either present herself as a compromise Prime Ministerial candidate in the event of a hung
