#ccstalks TweetChat: ‘Should we ban government bans?’

Event Date: 15 Apr 2015; Time: 7-8pm
Venue: tweetchat.com #ccstalks

We’re seeing a slew of bans from the government—the beef ban in Maharashtra, the ban on diesel vehicles more than 10 years old, the earlier ban on alcohol in Kerala. Are we undermining individual freedom? Do we need protection from the nanny state?

#ccstalks TweetChat: ‘Rule of Law versus Rule of Mob’

Event Date: 18 Mar 2015; Time: 7-8pm
Venue: tweetchat.com #ccstalks

A mob in Nagaland barged into the Dimapur Central Jail, dragged out a rape accused and lynched him. This was a result of dissatisfaction with the legal system. Is such form of vigilante justice justified? Or a violation of the rule of law? And have movies and the media played a role in glamorising mob rule? Join us for #ccstalks, Wednesday, 18 March 2015 from 7-8pm as we debate this issue. Log in to tweetchat.com or Twitter and follow #ccstalks. We look forward to speaking with you!

#ccstalks TweetChat: ‘Should we introduce private participation in the Indian Railways?’

Event Date: 04 Mar 2015; Time: 7-8pm
Venue: tweetchat.com #ccstalks

The Indian Railways displays many of the symptoms of a government monopoly. With the exception of select lines, we often find that trains and stations are unsafe, unclean and service is not of good quality. Introducing private participation has worked for the airways – should we try the same with railways? Against the backdrop of the Railway Budget, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the issue! Join the discussion next Wednesday at 7pm. Log in to tweetchat.com or Twitter with your account and follow #ccstalks.
