Indian skipper Virat Kohli was the talk of the town on Sunday as India took on Pakistan in their first match of ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The Men in Blue faced a humiliating loss by arch-rivals Pakistan by a margin of 10 wickets. This was the first time that Pakistan won a T20I fixture by 10 wickets and India lost a T20I by 10 wickets. The Men in Blue were dealt with early blows as both their in-form openers, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma walked back to the pavilion in the first 3 overs of the match.
Twitterati wasn’t very impressed with Virat Kohli’s captaincy in the game and lashed out at the Indian skipper after the game. As cricket lovers we must respect good play and accept the fact that they played better cricket. We should stand united and support Indian team in bad time. This is just the first match of tournament and we will bounce back with win.

The fate of mobile phone
Mobile phones, one of the greatest inventions that made our life better. It soon became a lifesaver. The prime function of mobile phone was to connect with your near and dear ones from anywhere. The fact that a phone could be carried kept everyone mesmerised for sometime. But now this mobile phone share the same fate like that treadmill where clothes are left to dry. Mobile phones are now primarily used to watch movies, play games, shop for amenities, order food and what not. The calling feature has somewhat taken a backseat.

The Chief Justice drew attention
Infrastructure plays an important role in the rapid development of every sector. The country’s chief justice has pointed the finger at the lack of infrastructure in the courts. This makes the country aware, How fragile is the condition of the courts in the country due to lack of infrastructure? There is a constant flow of people to the court. They as well as the employees working there should not have access to basic facilities. There is no tragedy like this. It is unfortunate that the Chief Justice has to pay attention to this. Every public sector must have the necessary infrastructure. Why neglect to make them available? This is a serious question. As long as there are no problems, everything is going well. It seems so. When they are presented, their awfulness is known. Also, How can the failure to resolve them in time directly affect the progress of the country? This is noticed. Justice is expected in time from the courts. But the same courts are facing inconveniences in terms of infrastructure. This, however, was conveniently ignored.
There are 24,280 law and justice offices in the country. It has more than 20,000 courts. Of these, 26 % buildings do not have toilets for women, while 16 % courts do not have toilets. 54% of courts do not have access to safe drinking water. Not even 5% medical facilities are available. 32% of courts do not have separate facilities for keeping documents. 27% of judges have video conferencing facilities on their desks. How can a man work in such a situation? Many cases are pending in the courts of the country. That’s what people knew. Courts do not have the proper infrastructure as in other areas. This has now come to the fore with statistics. The infrastructure available to the courts should be audited. It will also address the issue of fire safety. Where there are thousands of people, is there fire safety? It will be noticed. Weak judiciary also affects foreign investment. Any company always check all the things while investing. Where the courts have to wait for infrastructure. What about the others there?
The courts are the mainstay of democracy. If they are strengthened by providing basic facilities, the welfare of the people of the country will be ensured. Because the courts are for the people. Things that are for people. Why are there always problems? E.g. Public hospitals. The days are just being postponed because it is not being thought of. Courts have to wait for justice like ‘Tarikh pe Tarikh’ for infrastructure. The country is developing. The Chief Justice has removed this air.
