India Today - - SNAPSHOTS -

What hap­pens when In­dia’s fore­most cor­po­rate at­tor­ney puts pen to pa­per? You get an au­thor­i­ta­tive yet ac­ces­si­ble read per­fect for any­one keen to un­der­stand In­dia’s le­gal sys­tem and the foun­da­tions of our democ­racy. Zia Mody’s new book Ten Judge­ments That Changed In­dia ex­am­ines ten piv­otal judge­ments by the In­dian Supreme Court over the years. From ex­plain­ing why Shah Bano’s al­imony was rel­e­vant to In­dia’s sec­u­lar­ism to elab­o­rat­ing on how Bhan­wari Devi’s rape helped de­fine sex­ual ha­rass­ment at the work­place, Mody’s book takes a look at themes such as cus­to­dial deaths, reser­va­tions and en­vi­ron­men­tal ju­rispru­dence.
