Lecture session on Criminal Justice System in India

A nation's legal system is integral to how its citizens look upon issues that concern the country in general and their individual lives in particular. The Criminal Justice System is a series of government agencies and institutions whose goal is to identify and catch the law-breakers and to inflict a form of punishment on them. Other goals include the rehabilitation of offenders, preventing other crimes, and moral support for victims.

Of late, the relevance of our criminal justice system- both substantive and procedural is being seriously questioned. Perhaps the criminal judicial system is based on the laws that are arbitrary and operate to the disadvantages of the poor. Keeping in view the fundamental and human rights of the citizens, the Indian criminal laws were amended in 2013 and 2015. The importance of these developments to the delivery system of justice cannot be ignored. They have revolutionized our judicial jurisprudence and will go a long way in giving relief to the large masses and the common man.

In view of the recent amendments to criminal laws, the Ludhiana Management Association has invited Mr. KTS Tulsi, Indian politician and a senior advocate in the Supreme Court of India & Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) for a thoughtful and engaging lecture on 'Criminal Justice System In India' to discuss its emerging dimensions, its ground realities and best reformations that could benefit the public at large.

Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha)
Date : 25th August, 2018(Saturday) Time : 7:30 p.m.

He is President, Criminal Justice Society of India since 1994, was Vice Chairman, Law Commission of India; Additional Solicitor, General of India & held very senior position in public life. He was nominated as Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) in February, 2014.

Seminar on New India's Engine of Growth : Entrepreneurship & Seed Investing

An economy grows when creative destruction is actively happening. Entrepreneurs are central to this process of creative destruction. They are credited with creating new businesses, and creating jobs, intensifying competition, and even increasing productivity through smarter technology. Globally, entrepreneurs and SMEs are widely considered to be vital for a healthy economy as they create a higher share of total jobs than their larger counterparts.

Seed funding of new firms is critical to make successful commercialization of business innovations. Few entrepreneurs have the personal resources necessary to finance very-early-stage ventures, and they often find themselves relying on external sources of seed capital.

SEMINAR ON PHILANTHROPY

We live in an interdependent world. Every time we cut off somebody else's opportunities, we shrink our own horizons. Social advance depends quite as much upon an increase in moral sensibility as it does upon a sense of duty. The test of a civilization is in the way that it cares for its helpless members.

Wealth is not to feed our egos but to feed the hungry and to help people help themselves. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Philanthropy is not about money..it's about feeling the pain of others and caring enough about their needs to help. It is different than charity, which focuses on eliminating the sufferings caused by social problems, while philanthropy focuses on the elimination of social problems. True philanthropy requires a different mindset, innovative thinking and a philosophy driven by entrepreneurial insights and creative opportunities. The results of philanthropy are always beyond calculation.

With a mission to inspire, transform, and catalyze a network of effective philanthropists as a means to a more just, sustainable, and enriching world. Ludhiana Management Association has invited Mr. Rakesh Bharti Mittal , Vice- Chairman and Managing Director, Bharati Enterprises for a thoughtful and engaging interaction on 'Philanthropy'.

Healthy Living, Healthy Nation

Healthy Nation begins with Healthy Me'. Health is not just the absence of disease; it is a state of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Fundamental to everything we do, health enables us to engage with life. Without health, we cannot manage relationships with our families and friends, fully participate in our chosen work, contribute meaningfully to our communities, or effectively compete on the global stage.

A Healthy Nation is a Wealthy Nation & Healthy citizens are its greatest asset. India may be on a high growth path, a beacon among the slow growing economies of the world, but its health sector is in trouble especially in the measurement of health indicators. India needs a focused, centrally sponsored, stronger public policy on health and a public campaign about what is important.

Seminar on Wealth Creation through Art - cum Dinner Meeting

Art is globally established as an alternate asset class for centuries, with many European families treating art as 'family silver' since generations. This trend is likely to catch up in India, with the wealth creation cycle only gaining momentum and an ever increasing interest in 'investments of passion'. Even after the top end Indian artists have grown tremendously in value over the last decade, the highest priced Indian painting (Rs 29 crore for a VS Gaitonde) is less than 1% of the value of the highest priced International painting (Rs 2,940 crore for a Leonardo da Vinci). All this clearly suggests that there is significant headroom for Indian art market to grow as we see more and more Indian collectors emerging as well as global collectors adding Indian art to their collections.

To get a better understanding of above subject, Ludhiana Management Association has invited Mr Rishiraj Singh Sethi, for a thoughtful and engaging interaction on 'Wealth Creation through Art'. Rishiraj is a CA and CFA (US) who after working for Andersen / Ernst & Young ("EY") for 11 years, has spent the last decade in developing Aura Art as a leading Integrated Art House and expanding the culture of collecting art throughout India. He is now recognized as a thought leader in the space, speaking regularly at forums as well as contributing articles, besides authoring the recent publication "The science behind valuing art" alongwith EY.

The event details are as follows:

Speaker : Rishiraj Singh Sethi, Director, Aura Art Development Pvt Ltd, Mumbai
Subject : Wealth Creation through Art
Date : 8th March, 2018 (Thursday); Time : 7:30 p.m.
