TH: MIsSING THE ASIAN TAILWIND? GS-2 Why India should be worried? Till 1757, India was the richest country with its wealth based on textile export,then the British looted us. o In 1950 ,India was richer than China. But now China is richer than us and expected to takeover USA. o We are not a part of OBOR NITIAarog has yet to develop a strategy laying out how India can become a $10-trillion economy by 2032. o no national perspective on the uncertainties, challenges and opportunities from global forces and technological innovation reshaping global politics, economy and society We are concerned about Pakistan and ignoring global trade. With two-thirds of global wealth soon going to be in Asia and India is obviously alone in the trade zone,when we look at the OBOR project. How China is readying itself to dominate the trade world? o US. President Barack Obama failed in writing trade rules for a re-emerging Asia through the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership, deterring China from claiming the strategic South China Sea despite the military pivot, and preventing the establishment of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank by asking Europe to keep out.
TH: MIsSING THE ASIAN TAILWIND? GS-2 US , Russia and China have strengths in individual sectors, their relations may well get better with China having low cost labour Mr. Trump is also moving away from military alliances to ramping up military superiority based on technological leadership. o Mr. Trump's policy shift considering a deal with China on trade China's national goal is to double its 2010 GDP and per capita income by 2020 for which the OBOR is considered essential. All the above points show How China is moving on the right road to become a dominant player in global trade. o Conclusion: China is keen that India join the OBOR initiative, providing the opportunity to reset relations with China and Pakistan, where we always look for military strategy and this OBOR will refocus on the democratic view. We should be a i hdinga "Digial Susainable Aia"copont Some encouraging signs that we have begun to think strategically by balancing cross-border terrorism with cross-border water flows and greater reliance on endogenous cybersecurity and missiles.
TH: ELECTIONS ARE NOT A REFERENDUM GS-2 o Referendums are, of course, a ready and a convenient method of resolving incompatible opinions The proposal that State Assembly elections can be reduced to a referendum on whether the Prime Minister was right or wrong evokes discomfort. There is, as we shall see, a perceptible difference between elections and a referendum. If the BJP does not win in politically significant States, the policy of demonetisation will hardly be rolled back. And the Central government will not even consider resignation. o The reduction of State Assembly elections to a referendum diminishes the political competence of voters to decide what sort of a government they wish to be ruled by. Elections, unlike referendums, are not an isolated instance. They represent a decisive moment in long-term civic engagement with structures, institutions, and holders of power. o if a citizen has the right to publicly debate the limits and the possibilities of power, she also has an obligation: that of acquiring knowledge on crucial dimensions of collective life. There is nothing more destructive for democracy than uninformed and quick decisions o A non-partisan and non-hysterical media, Social audits and report cards issued by civil society organisations, which keep anxious watch on acts of omission and commission by the government, are of equal import. o The way a society votes echoes the way a society thinks, the issues it identifies, who it thinks is capable of resolving them, and its aspirations.
IE: WHAT WE NEED TO GUARD GS-2 o What this article is about? Fundamental righs and current issues with Fundmental rights o What did the Constituent Assembly think about Fundamental Rights? o A Constitution does not "confer" fundamental rights. It confirms their existence and accords them protection o It is not a gift to the citizens but it is the basic human rights, gave much importance to fundamental rights. Thus this is the rationale of Fundamental Rights. Issue of Fundamental Rights and the Courts: o The Question which is asked by many "whether a court can deduce additional fundamental rights which are not expressly set out in the Constitution?" o Our Supreme Court has deduced fundamental rights which are not specifically mentioned in the Chapter on Fundamental Rights on the principle that certain unarticulated rights are implicit in the enumerated guarantees. o Eg- 1.freedom of the press based on the guarantee of freedom of speech and expression. o 2. right to travel abroad and return to one's country-Article 21 o 3. right to education until the age of 14 based on Article 21
IE: WHAT WE NEED TO GUARD GS-2 o Not only our Supreme Court but also other countries have followed other the similar trend. o Eg:-1. US Supreme Court has deduced rights of privacy and parenthood 2. Irish courts in the Republic of Ireland o The author says, No fundamental right is or can be absolute. Every Constitution provides for restriction of fundamental rights in general public interest.However, the restriction imposed should not be excessive or disproportionate. In determining this issue, judiciary plays a part. But that is no ground for declining judicial review ing judicial revieW. o Eg: State of Madras v. V.G. Rao decided in March 1952,Supreme Court says "it is inevitable that the social philosophy and the scale of values of the judges participating in the decision would play an important part", but emphasised that if the impugned legislation violated a fundamental right it would have to be struck down because as regards "fundamental rights", the Court has been assigned the role of a sentinel on the "qui vive".(qui vive means alert) o What is the basic principle on these courts have acted upon? o principle of constitutional adjudication is to construe a statute in a manner that will obviate constitutional challenge.Itis like interpreting the meaning of certain provisions based on the merits of the case or in favour of a particular view o Su spending Fundamental Rights: serious violations of fundamental rights occur during emergencies, reason is that fundamental rights are required to be suspended temporarily in order that the nation may survive
