  1. Capital punishment should be banned or not?
    Capital punishment is a death punishment given to the person who found guilty of the crime and his/her crime was serious enough to give death sentences. It is given mostly in rare cases in India usually for the crime of murder, serial killing, rape, bombing etc. The final decision is given by the judge.

    Capital punishment in India is not very popular and mainly given in special circumstances where there is no other severe punishment can be given to that person for his crime.
    The final decision is given by the judge and if the offender wants to appeal the higher court he/she has the right to do so. But if the same judgment is passed by the supreme court , it cannot be reappealed again. There are many capital punishment cases in India although it is not very popular here like nirbhaya case, Mumbai bombing case etc. These are the cases where the crime is very severe that no other punishment would be enough for the offenders. But it might be in contrast with the right to life of Indian constitution where every citizen has the right to live . This contrast between the punishment and fundamental right made this issue a serious one. Whether capital punishment should be banned or not?
    Right to life is for those people who is not trying to violate others right as well . Capital punishment are only for those who violated the rights of others in a very severe manner that it can be punished only by death sentence of that offender. So it should not be banned so as to maintain the fear of the punishment of such crimes otherwise the severe crimes will not reduce if there is no death penalty on them. For instance if the criminals of nirbhaya case were not sentenced death, it will boost the confidence of other rapers to do the same as there were not severe punishments for there crimes and lead to the increment of crimes in India. Similarly with the bombing which kills huge innocent population , definently needs a death penalty on the attackers for the justice of those innocent people who died without any reason by them.
    Capital punishment is a very huge punishment given to a person with the idea that he/ she can change himself after spending time in fhe jail, it is not possible all the time and therefore it should not be banned in India otherwise crimes will definitely increase. Judges should evaluate properly that it is necessary to give this punishment or there are option to punish him. This is helo in the development of better law and order in the country.

    It was the year 1862, when Alexander Parkes introduced the concept of Parkesine, which was later named as Plastic. There are many types and varieties of plastic available since then, a notable one being ‘Single use plastic’. It is the term used to describe a plastic discarded after single-time use. Example – Plastic spoons, cups, ear buds, plastic glasses, polythenes, PVCs etc,. The amount of it being dumped into the ocean beds after use, is so huge that it is even regarded as the ‘7th Continent of World’. And if the process continues in this pace then there’ll be more plastic in oceans as compared to fish by 2050.

    India stands at 94th position among top 100 countries using ‘single use plastic’. Keeping in view all of these, The Government of India took the decision of banning single use plastics in August 2021, with effect from 1st July 2022, being implemented in phase wise manner. Any person violating this act, will have to pay 1 lakh rupees as fine, or imprisonment of 5 years or both. Bangladesh was the 1st country in 2002 to have carried such motion and the recent one being by New Zealand in 2019. Many International resolutions and charters were passed since, to keep a check on the amount of Plastic used, and the pollution caused.

    We have often seen terrestrial and aquatic animals succumbing to plastic consumption. If implemented wisely, this initiave can save innocent lives of the biosphere. Plastic, at times, causes major blockage of sewage system causing huge incovenience. When dumped into the biosphere, it reflects detrimental impact on the soil health, hence biodiversity of a region. Ocean and sea beds are seen has dumping grounds of used plastic, causing menancing impact on aquatic bodies and the lives revolving around it. But as a coin carries 2 sides of itself, so does every other aspect. The move as warmly welcomed by the public and environmentalists, is also deeply condemned by the industrialists and economists.

    Banning plastics, gives way to other expensive alternatives posing a threat to the current economy. Paper being the material easily available after plastics, the step would also increase the burden on forests, encouraging deforestation. Approximately, 200,000 workers directly and 450,000 workers indirectly are engaged in plastic manufacturing and related industries. Shutting down the product wholly, would cause these workers lose their livelihood. Rather than completely banning the cheap, easy to use product, one should try opting better options of recycle, resuse and better disposal; considering the viability of the situation.

    Single use plastics consists of about one-third of the total plastics available worldwide. The enemy is not that plastics exist per se, but that plastics exist in the environment. Having known all the aspects of the scenario, one should try and take calculated and reasonable steps, considering every possible outcomes, so that India doesn’t risk an economic crackdown repurcussions in the impending future.
