October 23rd marks the 50th anniversary of Hungary's famous five day Revolution, brutally put down by Soviet rule.
The present circumstances in Iraq are sufficient to reach the conclusion that America will never have imagined about the blow that it had received in Middle Asia during the last three decades.

Fear breeds fear just as love extends love. So the question becomes: which would we rather have? Fear masks as good judgment, reason, planning, and necessary defense, yet who has populated the world with nuclear weapons and fomented war in recent times more than the most abundant nation on Earth? What nation is leading the advance in turning the garden planet into a tortuous prison plantation of death, destruction and slave wages to serve the elites?....A paradigm shift is underway, and a bright, bold new post-material, post-scarcity era called The Age of Infinity is rapidly emerging....

Electronic judiciary in India (E-judiciary in India) is no more a science fiction though much has still to be done to make it a practical and operational reality. Electronic justice in India (E-justice in India) has already found its existence to some extent and that is reasonably enough for a good beginning. The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for judicial purposes has its own advantages. The major among them is the reduction of backlog of cases, decreased costs, increased efficiency, etc. At the same time ignorance of ICT will also come with its costs for the judiciary in India. The judicial system can collapse if it fails to adopt and transform itself as per the requirements of ICT in India. It would be a good idea to train the fresh judges at the entry level and provide e-learning and classroom training to the existing and otherwise competent judicial force in India.
The Bangalore Cyber crime lab will open in November and IT companies like Infosys, Motorola and others are involved in this initiative. The same may, however, not be very much effective in the absence of a sound cyber law in India. The proposed IT Act, 2000 amendments have further diluted the part dealing with cyber crimes in India. There is a drastic need of paying attention to cyber security in India, cyber forensics in India and computer security in India. The same is also important for e-governance in India and e-commerce in India.
The aim of this article is to consider the far reaching consequences of the proposed IT Act, 2000 amendments as suggested by the Expert Committee appointed by the Government in this regard. These amendments were severely criticised in India because of their inherent weaknesses and retrograde approach. If these proposed amendments have been approved by the cabinet without considering the critical evaluations or without the necessary modification, India will surely be a “safe heaven” for various cyber crime and contraventions. Equally at risk are e-governance in India and e-commerce in India. In the present scenario, cyber law in India is going to be a remedy worse than the malady. We may have a cyber law without teeth. Rather, it may actively encourage and support the criminal tendencies and cyber crimes in India. It is ironical that though India is emerging as the leading country in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) yet the law that is needed to make it a ground reality is itself removing the protection and safeguards necessary for the survival and continued existence of ICT in India.
