The Hindu LFL 2019: Arun Shourie in conversation with N.Ravi

Eminent journalist and political commentator Arun Shourie in conversation with the Publisher of The Hindu, N. Ravi at the session Making India Work.

N. Ravi initiates the discussion on Mr. Shourie's book 'Anita Gets Bail' in which the latter narrates the travails of his wife Anita being prosecuted for an alleged environmental law provision. Mr. Shourie reads out from his book "Anita Gets Bail" and takes a dig at certain judgements of the Supreme Court.

Mr. Ravi, in the context of the Supreme Court's judgement on Rafale deal, says, "The Court may be supreme but not infallible."

Mr. Shourie questions the refusal of the government to disclose the price. He recalls that in the past, the price had been stated in Parliament with regard to the Mirage deal.

On Sabarimala row - While women's solution is to go to the temple whereas my solution is: "I will never go there."

Mr. Shourie ends his session by calling upon people to study judgements and comment on them in an academic way. "This is the way to ensure accountability."
