which included all the three candidates of BSP, the court held.The court also struck down a provision in the Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act 1976 which put the burden on a person found to be in possession of beef to prove his innocence The court said that too infringes on the fundamental rights of a person The state argued that striking down these provisions will make it difficult to implement the beef ban in place since March last year Former Advocate General Shreehari Aney had earlier argued that “other provisions cannot exist without 5D (possession of meat slaughtered from outside the state)” The 2015 amendment to the 1976 law envisaged preventing not only slaughter but also consumption Upholding the ban on slaughter a division bench of Justice A S Oka and Justice S C Gupte said “The State Government has justified the prohibition imposed on slaughter of a cow bull or bullock bycontending that the cow progeny excreta is recognised as a source of rich organic manure which enables farmers to avoid the use of chemicals as well as inorganic manure…” The court said this has to be appreciated in light of the fact that the state economy is predominantly agricultural Share This Article Related Article The court upheld the constitutional validity on ban of slaughter transport or export of products made from bovine flesh within the state However the court said preventing a citizen from possessing the flesh of a cow bull or bullock slaughtered outside the state amounts to prohibiting a citizen from possessing and consuming food of his choice In a 245-page judgement the court also struck down provisions for conviction of a person for one year and a fine of Rs 2000 for import of such meat It also struck down the right of police or any other authority to stop or search a vehicle carrying bovine flesh slaughtered in another state The division bench was hearing over 20 writ petitions and PILs filed by filmmakers students lawyers and farmers challenging the beef ban and the constitutional validity of Section 5D of the newly amended law The court pointed out that in Section 5D the focus seemed to be on consumption of beef as a food item “Consumption of food which is not injurious to health is part of an individual’s autonomy or his right to be left alone Hence it is an infringement of his right of privacy In our view Section 5D violates the right of privacy being an integral part of the personal liberty under Article 21” observed Justice Oka adding that the state cannot enter people’s homes and prevent them from possession of flesh slaughtered outside the state “Section 5D will have to be struck down as being violative of fundamental right guaranteed by Article 21 of the Constitution of India” said the court Saying that the scope of Article 21 has been expanded by the apex court the HC said “It includes the right to lead a meaningful life It protects the citizen from unnecessary state intrusion into his home For leading a meaningful life a citizen will have to eat food and preferably food of his choice If the state tells him not to eat a particular kind of food…it will prevent the citizen from leading a meaningful life…” said Justice Oka Regarding Section 9B of the amended Act under which the burden of proving innocence on being arrested for slaughter transport export sale purchase or possession of beef is on the accused the court said it is easier for the prosecution to provide evidence that the slaughter was in contravention of the Act “than for the accused to bear the burden of showing otherwise” Justice Gupte also observed that merely because a person is found to be in possession of bovine flesh this does not mean he probably knew that the slaughter was within the state Such a person cannot be held guilty if he is transporting such flesh without knowledge the court observed “No one has told us at the Bar…of there being any way of distinguishing the flesh of cow bull or bullock from the flesh of other bovine species for example buffalo It is inconceivable that an ordinary consumer would know the difference” Justice Gupte said Stating that such a burden is unreasonable and subjects the accused to a grave hardship and oppression the court said “The procedure prescribed by Section 9B for the trial of offences cannot be said to be fair just and reasonable We must therefore hold Section 9B as unconstitutional which infringes Article 21” The court also refused to grant the state government a stay on the part of the judgment which allows import of beef in the state and removes the onus on

that promotes follicle development and stimulates ovary growthand could act as a potential ‘game-changer’ in human fertility treatment The discovery may help improve effectiveness of current fertility treatments for women and possibly lead to entirely new treatments altogether Researchers from Stanford and Akira University in Japan identified the hormone called “R-spondin2” “The finding of a new ovarian hormone produced by the oocytes capable of stimulating ovarian follicle growth could lead to new infertility treatments” said Aaron J W Hsueha researcher involved in the work from the Division of Reproductive and Stem Cell Biology in the Department of Obstetrics and Genecology at Stanford University Medical School in StanfordCalifornia To make this discoveryHsueh and colleagues analysed all the proteins likely made by the eggsand discovered a previously unknown hormonecalled R-spondin2 The researchers then replicated this new hormone in test tubes and injected it into mice The hormone stimulated growth of mouse ovarian cellsleading to the generation of mature eggsresearchers said in the FASEB Journal These eggs were fertilised and led to successful pregnancies and the delivery of healthy pups Thenhuman ovarian tissue was grafted into miceand this also grew after treatment with this newly identified ovarian hormonesuggesting that the hormone could work in humans The researchers speculated that when used in conjunction with the traditional Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)this newly discovered ovarian hormone could lead to new infertility treatment options for those not

Neumann at Princeton ran off 2400 vacuum tubes and could store programs in memory a tremendous feat at the time It was destined to improve thermonuclear weapons but when it arrived writes Garry Kasparov the scientists did not set it to solve criticality problems Instead to put it through its paces they programmed it to play chess Its game was called “anti-clerical chess” because the system memory could not accommodate the standard eight by eight chess board — it was reduced to six by six by dropping the bishops MANIAC 1 lost to experts but trounced a rookie volunteer This unsung martyr was the first human victim of computers foretelling job losses still half a century in the future when robots would displace production line and call centre workers and make surgeons uneasy in their operation theatres “Few people in the world know better than I do what it’s like to have your life’s work threatened by a machine” writes long-reigning world chess champion Garry Kasparov He engaged with chess-playing machines when many grandmasters avoided contests with them because no one knew what would happen if the machine won Would the sponsorships dry up Would people stop playing chess because no chance of winning remained But Kasparov appreciated why scientists and computer manufacturers keep making chess machines and programs: the eight by eight board and the strict laws which govern it provide a clearly defined sandbox for testing machine intelligence The enduring popularity of the game the distant descendant of the game of dice in which Draupadi was gambled away ensures that experiments involving it get breathless coverage in the press Besides it turned out that losing to machines does not deter humans any more than losing to the Kauravas Millions of people play chess regularly the world over despite the rise of algorithms which can beat them in minutes Deep Thinking explores man-machine contests — and collaborations — from the viewpoint of an interested participant Almost all the literature on the subject owes to computer scientists science fiction writers and coders the people on the side of the machine Kasparov brings us a unique account from the human corner of the ring including the first first-person account of his clash with IBM’s Deep Blue The contest was followed as obsessively on live TV as the Spassky-Fischer match in Reykjavik in 1972 which seemed to crystallise the superpower rivalry of the Cold War The battle with Deep Blue looked like a simulacrum of an imminent war between neurons and neural networks “When I sat across from Deep Blue 20 years ago I sensed something new something unsettling” writes Kasparov “Perhaps you will experience a similar feeling the first time you ride in a driverless car or the first time your new computer boss issues an order at work” Actually we felt it long ago when we first made an STD call bypassing the operator or got in an elevator without an operator for the first time punched a button and got where we wanted to go Not much novelty there really except that Deep Blue was lots smarter than an elevator But it wasn’t human Kasparov finds machine chess “ugly and inhuman” There is something clinical about a computer’s approach because it is essentially conducting a maximisation exercise Unlike a human it is indifferent to winning and losing and has no reputation to protect That makes a huge difference to the state of play and machines are also programmed to approach the chessboard differently Algorithms are generically of two kinds brute force and pattern-seeking The first tries all possible solutions until it finds the right one like a random attack on your Google password The second focusses on probable solutions like a dictionary attack on the same password It is a bit closer to how the human mind works avoiding the grunt labour of solving for all possible outcomes As in life it makes a big difference in chess where the first four moves open up 300 billion possibilities A techno-optimist Kasparov believes that computing democratised chess Players no longer had to find a club and a coach carry around a heap of notebooks or raise an army of seconds to research their opponent’s style A cheap laptop can download games immediately after they are played in tournaments thousands of miles away He attributes the rise of Indian chess partly to easy access to chess programs However one can’t extrapolate from here to a general optimism about digital technology Chess machines are non-threatening because they only play chess Most artificially intelligent entities are ‘expert systems’ which excel in only one thing — gaming translation driving climate modelling or the search for the biggest prime number They are limited to that role which is why in

evolving a mechanism to make public the final list of eligible farmers in “chawdis” across 40913 villages in the state The revised loan waiver amount following inclusion of farmers whose loans had been restructured would increase from Rs 34000 crore to Rs 37000 crore A source in the state government told The Indian Express: “As the process of loan waiver begins there is a possibility of some additions and subtractions As the government has adopted a flexible approach in enforcing the biggest loan waiver ever in Maharashtra or the country Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has issued strict guidelines to the ministry of co-operation and marketing to ensure not a single eligible farmer is left out” Operational guidelines have been issued to financial institutions including district

the application form that would be submitted to seek the waiver A senior cabinet minister said: “Along with technology we are also planning to publish the names and amount of individual farmers who have taken the loan waiver in their respective villages/hamlets The role of the local bodies namely gram panchayats and village committees would be significant for the exercise A closely-knit village
