Madurai Bench of Madras High Court Betrays the Vice Grip of English on the Judiciary
Justice Mani Kumar of the Madurai bench of Madras High Court dismissed two petitions on July 12 saying that advocate Bhagat Singh tried to present the cases of the petitioners in Tamil; the Judge pointed out that Indian Constitution permits use of only English in the Supreme Court and High Courts. If arguments in any other Indian language is sought, the permission of the Rashtrapati or the state Governor must be obtained. One of the petitioners is Ayisha Banu of Kovilpatti in Thuthukudi district seeking the court’s direction to the External Affairs Ministry to bring back her husband stranded in Saudi Arabia. The other petitioner, a panchayat official from Kanyakumari district, had sought the court’s direction for approval of his house building plan. Both petitioners were denied relief, pointing to the grim reality of the sway of English over a free country that is Bharat.
How Hundreds of Chennai Walkers responded to the Call to support RSS relief work in Uttarakhand
One fine morning last week, hundreds of walkers frequenting  a public park in T.Nagar, Chennai, were pleasantly surprised to find a huge digital hoarding  at the park’s entrance containing an  appeal to donate in cash and kind for the relief work by RSS – inspired Uttaranchal Deivi Apada Peedit Sahayata  Samiti. The banner also bore the local contact number, that of Shri Bhaskaran, an office bearer of the Walkers Club, who had thoughtfully displayed the banner there. In a couple of days, a DD for Rs 40,000, being the walkers’ contribution, was sent to the Dehra Dun office of the Samiti. By the way, Bhaskaran, a businessman now, was a pracharak of the Sangh 35 years back. A full page multi colour advertisement containing the appeal published in the nationalist Tamil weekly ‘Vijayabharatham’ came handy for him in printing the flex banner.  

Malaysian Tamil Scholar Appeals to Tamils in Bharat to speak English-Free Tamil
Dr. S. Kumaran, Head of Tamil Research in Malaya University of Malaysia fervently appealed to Tamilians in Bharat to cultivate the habit of  speaking in English-free Tamil so that the language could be passed on to the next generation intact.  He said he could observe Tamilians in Tamilnadu resorting to English quite often. He was sad that the population of Tamilians in Malaysia went down from 11 percent to 7 percent over the years, owing to the policies of the government there. Kumaran was addressing the literary club meet at Urumu Danalakshmi College on the outskirts of Tiruchirapally. The Tamil Research department of the college is to sign an MOU with Kumaran’s department. S. Sekar, Principal of U.D. College chaired the session.
