When Minds of different people work together collectively, then only we can call something acceptable and unacceptable. We speak in different forms of same language, we criticize something, we accept something over the other, we reject things, we evolve different social structure with different forms of dance, art, festivals etc. Culture affects each other in different aspects of life and the way we transact with each other. Traditionally, India is rich in cultural values and diversity as different societies prevail and preach different values of their culture to the individuals belonging to that specific society. Cultural bonds directly connect with our rights as well because many thinkers and philosophers have evidently worked upon the connection between our culture and human rights. Our country has always been an informed and knowledgeable society as it has always welcomed thinkers and philosophers to walk on this land with their thoughts and creativity. India is a land of thoughtful minds and spectrum of these minds are always being embraced through practice and writings.</em></p> Apeksha Kumari Pallavi Baghel Copyright (c) 2022 GLS Law Journal 2023-01-01 2023-01-01 5 1 1 8 For a Healthy Society its Laws Should Be Based on Morality: A Critical Study on Law & Morality <p><em>Law &amp; morality acting has a significant impact in the moulding and guideline of societies. There is likewise a specific measure of cross-over among regulation and ethical quality as frequently regulation gives articulation to the acknowledged principles of profound quality inside the general public, regardless of whether it straightforwardly enact for it. The examination centres around an analysis investigation of epistemological premise of the connection among regulation and profound quality in H.L.A. Hart's normal worldview. It is as indicated by prophetic worldview which depends on philosophical methodology. As per the examination, it is reasoned that Hart's viewpoint depends on the epistemological essential presumptions including the essential and optional standards; Value/Ethics including epistemological morals, for example, independent, individual, procedural, and relative morals while the prophetic worldview depends on the epistemological suspicions in which Relative Morality is the consequence of creation and will of outright reality.

People collectively take participation into choosing their leaders, whether for the national general elections or state elections. Elections are the root of the concept of democracy, as democracy brings out the idea of people’s rule and hence a large amount of people goes to the poll </em><em>to elect members for the Lok Sabha, State legislative assembly, and the legislature of the union territories</em><em>. One of the basic features of our Constitution is Free and Fair Elections. Election gives a ruling party an immense amount of power and hence it is vital for the sake of protecting democracy that nothing hampers with such process of electing members. Elections in India are almost treated equally to one of the big festivals, as people are collected to celebrate the process of voting and campaigns take place all over the country or state in a grand manner. This paper particularly talks about Right to vote of prisoners. The paper would analyze the concept of right of vote in a democracy and the degree of importance that a mere right can hold. The paper would also be comparing the right to vote for prisoners internationally, so as to reason behind the concept of different opinions when compared to the Indian society. Prisoners are felons of the society and they are treated always lesser than the other citizens but it is important to make sure that how much low they can be treated for what they have done, as taking away right for being a prisoner but not on the basis of the degree of the crime is how far right and how far wrong.</em></p> Anjali Sharma B.S.

Since India became the first country in the world to impose a legal need for CSR in 2014, the concept has been evolving ever since. As India faces the second wave of the Covid-19 epidemic in 2021, a number of recent events have set the ground for dramatic transformations in the way companies approach social responsibility and collaborate with the social sector. The ministry of corporate affairs (MCA) has issued various clarifications on what corporations might consider as part of their CSR spend amid urgent increasing health care needs, as India pushes over four lakh Covid-19 cases per day in April. The most recent statement, made on May 5, was that enterprises may utilize CSR funding to build health infrastructure for Covid-19 care, including medical oxygen and storage plants, as well as manufacture and delivery of oxygen concentrators, ventilators, cylinders, and other medical equipment. This article examines the current epidemic from the perspective of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and its requirement for reshaping. </em></p> Naman Shukla Krishna Pandey Copyright (c) 2022 GLS Law Journal 2023-01-01 2023-01-01 5 1 30 37 Cyber bullying: A Need for Separate Provision in Indian Law Saran <p><em>The Internet has become an essential component of our daily lives. It has opened the door to many opportunities and new social media culture. The Internet has made connecting and communicating with people more accessible than ever. The use of the Internet cannot be overemphasized as much as its inherent peril could not be underestimated. A few relevant ones are (but are not limited to) online harassment, voyeurism, identity theft, phishing, internet fraud, etc. The Internet has also become a medium for character assassination. Online abuse is severe and pervasive. It is severe because it causes the victim to suffer from mental distress, insecurity, and depression, especially in children. It is pervasive because it has become common, and the facility of publicity is detrimental to the dignity and reputation of people.<a href="#_ftn1" name="_ftnref1"><sup><strong>[1]</strong></sup></a> Cybercrimes have unique features and raise special evidentiary issues that might not be adequately addressed by simply stretching old laws to fit new crimes.<a href="#_ftn2" name="_ftnref2"><strong>[2]</strong></a> Most countries have taken measures to prevent cyberbullying. However, Indian law did not take cyberbullying into its cognizance. In this paper, we are dealing with cyberbullying and its effects, how foreign law deals with cyberbullying, how cyberbullying is dealt with in India, and most importantly, the need for separate provisions in Indian law to deal with it.</em></p> Saran Errakot Rahoof VK Copyright (c) 2022 GLS Law Journal 2023-01-01 2023-01-01 5 1 38 45
