New Delhi: The Delhi High Court was on Monday informed by the Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DLSA) that 51 women out of 152 women under trial prisoners, who have been languishing in Tihar jail for more than six months or completed half of their sentences in lesser offences, have been released on bail.

Filing an affidavit before a division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath, the DLSA said that in Jail No.6 at Tihar, there were 105 women under trial prisoners who were facing charges other than murder, rape, culpable homicide not amounting to murder and under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). There were 47 women undertrial prisoners who have completed half of the period of their sentences in lesser offences in case of multiple offences, the affidavit said.

Undertrial Review Committees have already been constituted in all districts of Delhi in compliance with the Supreme Court’s directions in April 2015, the affidavit said. Out of 47 women undertrial prisoners, 11 have been granted bail by trial courts. “Out of 105 undertrial prisoners lodged in Jail No.6, a total of 40 undertrial prisoners have been granted bail,” said the affidavit filed by member secretary Dharmesh Sharma of DLSA. The DLSA response came on a bunch of PILs over the plight of 152 women undertrial prisoners not involved in heinous crimes but languishing in Tihar for over six months due to tardy disposal of cases.

Smart living is also about smart breathing.

By Himanshu Agarwal

While smart homes are typically about connected and automated devices and appliances, making it a super convenient and comfortable living experience for residents, there is one connection that we often seem to miss when we speak of smart homes -- the inextricable connection with the indoor home environment.

After all, smart living is also about smart breathing. Unless we breathe clean and pure air even within our homes, smart living remains an incomplete aspiration. Therefore, as we pivot big time to a modern lifestyle with nearly 24/7 gadgets, utilities, and network dependency within our homes, a sense of balance with respect to the indoor ambiance must also be attained. And this balance necessarily means breathing pristine, unadulterated pure air even at homes.

Don't forget we breathe 24/7 even when living in smart homes

Of course, in this time and age when we are actively using some smart device or the other within the premises of our smart homes most of the time, the point that we are also breathing 24/7 need not be as labored. However, the question is: whether the quality of the air that we are breathing indoors is commensurate with the aspiration for this so-called quality of life and experience of living in high-class homes. In other words, even as we think we are living the 'high life' using all the fancy gadgets and increasing convenience in life, unless we breathe the right air, the desire and dream of quality living will not find true meaning.
