'Cultural issues' at the core of Vishal Sikka's exit as Infosys CEO 18.8.2017 News
As the first non-founder chief executive, Vishal Sikka "gives in" to the board and co-founders' feud and steps down. And, Infosys seems to have again proved its apathy towards a cultural shift of the type information technology (IT) companies need. When Sikka, a Stanford University alumnus and former SAP board member, took charge at the founder-led Indian IT services major, he had a crucial responsibility apart from business -- changing the culture at Infosys. The company once saw co-founder Narayana Murthy "taking a decision on which carpet to choose for one of the floors at the Infosys campus in Bengaluru", said a former employee. It began to see changes in areas from operations to technology under Sikka. However, after a series of "distractions" over claims of governance lapses under his regime, he blamed the the co-founders for passing on allegations as the primary reason for resignation. Though Murthy has not pointed fingers at Sikka's strategies, he continuously raised concern ..

Law shields minors for giving false info, court lets off girls 18.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The bar in law to prosecute minors for giving false information has led a Delhi court to let off two girls for filing a false rape case against their father. As per the provision of the stringent Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, no punishment shall be imposed on a child for giving a false complaint or false information, which is otherwise a penal offence. Additional Sessions Judge Ashwani Kumar Sarpal acquitted the father of the two minor girls, who was accused of raping and sexually assaulting them, saying no offence was proved against him as his daughters -- aged 15 and 11 years -- have resiled from their statements. "No doubt the complaint on which FIR has been registered is in the own hand writing of the victim (elder daughter) and both the victims had also given statement under the CrPC against the accused, from which they have now resiled. "But these victims cannot be prosecuted for any perjury due to bar of Section 22(2) of the POCSO Act. Hence, accused is hereby acquitted ...

Winning elections at any cost 'new normal' in politics, says EC; Congress urges for election finance reforms 18.8.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
 The Election Commission in a scathing commentary on Indian politics has stated that winning the elections at all cost, without ethics, is a new normal. "Democracy thrives when elections are free, fair and transparent. However, it appears to a cynical common man. We have been scripting narrative that places maximum premium on winning at all costs to the exclusion of ethical considerations. Winning the elections at all cost, without ethics, is new normal in politics," Election Commissioner Om Prakash Rawat said, while addressing a press conference on Thursday. The comments are significant in context of the fiasco which happened during by-poll in Tamil Nadu which was ultimately cancelled and the RS elections in Gujarat, where Congress MLAs switched sides before the elections and finally veteran leader Ahmed Patel managed to barely scrape through. There were allegations of large scale use of money power to influence the MLAs in Gujarat.  "In this narrative, the poaching of legislators is extolled as smart ...
