slave to Kadru She could be saved but only by the man from an egg To know what happens next one would have picked up Sudha Murthy’s latest book for children – The Man from The Egg – Unusual Tales about the Trinity (Puffin; Rs 250) A compilation of 24 stories it is the second installation of the series Murthy is writing bringing together untapped stories from the rich treasure trove of Hindu mythology “It is a five-part series that I’m writing for children Generally we see books on the popular epics of the Ramayana the Mahabharata or of Bala Krishna but I wanted to write unfamiliar stories I’ve been reading on mythology for over 50 years so I like characters which are unusual from these epics The scriptures written in different languages Bengali Gujarati Odiya bring such stories to the fore” she says While Murthy’s first book in 2016 The Serpent’s Revenge brought unusual stories from the Mahabharata the latest is a set of stories of the holy trinity of Brahma Vishnu and Shiva The trio is considered to be responsible for the survival of human race There are stories of Brahma having five heads; the forked tongues of snakes; did the gods cheat; and even a tale on Shiva’s headgear – the crescent moon “More than children these stories are for their mothers because not many know them This was the idea behind writing these stories and the entire series” said the 67-year-old who is also the chairperson of The Infosys Foundation On the waning interest for mythology in present times and among the younger lot she says “These stories are not narrated to children properly that is why their interest is reducing You have to spend the time to make them read and nobody has the patience” The award-winning author adds “These stories have boundaries and are different from the other stories I’ve written Children have a certain maturity level and they are very smart these days hence you can’t exaggerate facts and stories have to be humorous too” Bangalore-based Murthy has written numerous books for children including Grandma’s Bag of Stories How I Taught My Grandmother to Read and Other Stories and The Bird with Golden Wings and fiction and non-fiction for adults “Humans relations is missing these days” says Murthy when asked about the rising violence among children these days “One should like another human being because he is human and not because he is rich an achiever or talented You should love the poorest of the poor find out about their lives It requires an understanding of the human mind and we consider it a waste of time” For all the latest

with the media after the conference Related News Chief Justice of India H L Dattu said Sunday that judiciary and Parliament are like “siblings” and must work together “towards a truly just and effective administration of justice” “Judiciary and Parliament are like siblings both the children of democracy We are obligated on one hand to support one another and on the other hand correct the other if they sway from the path laid down by our sacred Constitution” the CJI told a joint conference of chief justices of high courts and chief ministers ALSO READ:Are 5-star activists driving courts… look within says PM Modi to judges Following two days of deliberation with chief justices the CJI said that issues concerning the administration of justice are complex and cannot be addressed by the judiciary alone Share This Article Related Article “The executive has just as much at stake and the judiciary must work with the executive as equal partners in this extremely important mission It is only a well-coordinated effort between the executive and judiciary that will ensure we achieve a just and efficient legal system” he said describing the joint conference as a “fine example of institutional dialogue” CJI Dattu underlined that the issue of pendency of cases in courts cannot be solved by the judiciary alone and requires efforts on multiple fronts and multiple agencies including drastic change in administration of police and work by prosecution agencies apart from judicial reforms to tackle this “complex” problem He said the Supreme Court and high courts have already been taking wide ranging measures to arrest pendency Pitching for financial autonomy to the judiciary the CJI said that although the final budgetary allocation is the prerogative of the executive the time has come to seriously engage on issues of financial autonomy for the judiciary once the allocation of funds is done “Within the allocated budget the judiciary must have sufficient autonomy to re-appropriate expenditure under the decided heads of expenditure This will go a long way in assisting the judiciary in taking effective steps in developing judicial infrastructure” he said Calling for a more effective process for release of funds to the high courts by state governments he said that more judges are needed at all levels of the judiciary “The current judge-population ratio in the country is one judge versus 61865 persons That is an unacceptable judge-population ratio and we must attack this on war-footing” the CJI said while making it clear that simply sanctioning more posts without sufficient infrastructure and support to fill these posts would not help the cause He also appealed for making judicial offices a financially viable career to attract the young and best minds “The most urgent need is to ensure that the best minds adorn the bench If the youth does not see this judiciary as a financially viable career option it may choose to stay away from the same If one were to simply compare the salary and perks of sitting judges in India to any other modern democracy or even compare the same to that of fresh graduates in Indian law firms the stark reality would be evident I greatly fear that this would cause the greatest hindrance in attracting competent youth towards judiciary” he said The CJI and Law Minister D V Sadananda Gowda who also interacted with the media after the conference said it has been decided to fix an outer limit of five years to complete trial in criminal cases CJI Dattu said it has also been decided that a committee will be formed by the CJI to look into the issues of judicial service commission in order to frame a uniform policy to appoint judges at the district level Asked about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertion that it was time for the judiciary to evolve an in-built mechanism for self-assessment the CJI said: “We have that mechanism… we call it an in-house mechanism which is in place and is effectively functioning and Chief Justices of states and the Chief Justice of India is monitoring the functioning of their officers throughout the country” Asked about the same issue Gowda said: “The judiciary has got its own mechanism to work out all those things Independence of judiciary will not be entered upon by the executive at any point of time” Asked to comment on former CJI Justice R M Lodha’s remark that courts should function on all 365 days Justice Dattu said the Supreme Court worked 190 days in a year but people were not told that judges worked 24×7 on all those days “Now for the remaining days in the year they do not literally sit at home They do their homework they write their judgments and they have no time even to spend with family members But people have a feeling… look these people work only for 190 days and the other days they spend an easy-go life No this is wrong thinking on part of the people I can certainly say having experience of 20 years as a judge that
