In India, we believe that law and technology are way apart. However, time is changing. Both law and technology are beginning to understand each other better. Law Commission of India took a leap into cyberspace by announcing its presence on the most popular social networking websites under the following names:
Facebook: Law Commission of India
YouTube: Law Commission of India
Not only this, the Law Commission of India has a logo specially designed for this purpose.
The Commission in its report said,
“A good percentage of the urban Indian population is active on one or other social media website. The Law Commission of India would also like to be part of this growing trend In order to make its presence more prevalent.”
The report clearly depicts the Commission’s intention to make its existence felt at a wider scale and get a first-hand opinion of the public on its policies.
In my opinion, I believe the population prefers to be more socially active than mentally active. Being a critique of anything and everything on a social platform is the new “cool.” When a stupefied comment pops over their screen, such people work their asses off to understand it. When it’s beyond the capacity of their so-called brains, they try to save their “oh so precious social image” by ramparting other like-minded people who are unaware of their own online actions. This depicts how the mentally lethargic world works today.
As long as we can keep such nonsensical revolutions and opinions at bay, people who think they can change the world sitting behind their PC screens will bring a more positive change. It just depends on how active the Commission stays. After all, the zeal with which the Indian Government works never persists till the end in the long run. Time will be a better judge of that. For now, we can just hope the good work continues.
