VNS suggested to the Chief Justice of India (CJI) concerning news of ‘Sexual Harassment of an Intern by a retired SC Judge’ and his suggestion and reasoning were well taken and openly appreciated by the CJI.

On a petition filed by VNS, Delhi High Court stayed Delhi Cabinet’s decision, taken during Arvind Kejriwal’s tenure, to grant subsidy to power bill defaulters, waiver of penalty and withdrawal of power theft cases. Delhi High Court has directed the LG of Delhi not to implement this decision.

The aspects of elections, its functioning, its analysis is all multifaceted and multi-layered. While there are ongoing issues that need redressal, there’s also a vision that is needed to be achieved. The Politics, itself cannot have a vision; it is open, fluid, for people and by its own people. This book introduces layers of what we see, what we could have seen, what we could have done as citizens, what betterments could have been brought in the system by way of sheer improvisations in the right directions. The Dream to achieve that heavenly kingdom must be seen and attempted; giving up hope can only let us dwell aimlessly in dungeons.


Published by world’s top publisher Thomson Reuters, the book contains a highly enlightening storyline weaved around real incidents of electioneering, applicable laws and rules, roles of Election Commission of India, political parties, candidates, corporates and 100-landmark election judgments of Supreme Court & High Courts.
