Rasila Raju OP, a software professional, was brutally murdered inside the Infosys office in Pune a week before. The incident has once again brought to public attention the sad state of women's safety in the information technology and BPO sector. The practice of forcing employees including women to work late nights and weekends is widespread, even when it is possible to give them options to work from home. Often, this is forced upon employees in spite of growing safety and health concerns raised by them. The corporate Human Resources departments, which are supposed to ensure fair working conditions, rather resort to reminding the employees of their contractual obligations made at the time of hiring, the interpretation of which stands for unlimited working hours without any overtime pay. Many of these facilities operate in Special Economic Zones (SEZs) where the enforcement of labor laws is scant.

Resolution against commodification of sports

Despite having talented young sportspersons, India with a population of over one billion has not emerged as a major contender in international sporting arena, even after seven decades of independence. The Central Government and most of the state governments have not paid proper attention to development of sports infrastructure.  Most of the facilities are in dire straits. Market has taken over the arena of sports. Premier leagues involving millions of rupees in auction of players are being popularized. Big Corporates and celebrities are owners of all the teams in Premier League in Cricket, Football, Kabaddi and Badminton. This is a glaring example of commoditization of sports.
