India, the second fastest growing economy of the world, the time has come to revive its basics. High courts are the next most premier institutions of justice after the Supreme Court. They represent sophisticated judicial policies and practices to secure human rights, criminal activities, and controversies. People look at them when they are in trouble, for justice, but what if they make controversial statements? Which can affect people’s emotions, their cultural beliefs and can even shatter the hope on Judicial systems. Here is a recent controversy in which a magistrate from Rajasthan High Court is involved.
Actually what happened?
Rajasthan High Court Magistrate, Mahesh Chandra Sharma has put social media and traditional media on fire with his biological remarks on the national bird, the Peacock. This happened on June 2nd, 2017, when a couple of reporters asked him about the recent issues.
Words explicitly from HC Judge- Mahesh Chandra Sharma
Elaborating on the controversial statement he said “Jo mor hai, yeh aajeevan brahmachari hai. Kabhi bhi morni ke saath sex nahi karta hai. Iske jo aasu aate hai, morni usse chubhkar garbhavati hoti hai, mor ya morni ko janm deti hai (The peacock is a lifelong celibate)”.
It does not have sex with the peahen. The peahen gets expectant with the tears of the peacock and then gives birth to a peacock or a peahen. Sharma’s remark had since then raged a storm on social media, especially Twitter. Twitterati exploded on him and given left and right for his controversial remarks.
How peacock’s get pregnant?
Male peacocks and female peahens are collectively called as peafowl. Male peacocks show up their mesmerizing, brilliant tail feathers to attract female peahens. The peacocks use their stunning tails which are usually in blue and green color during the season of breeding to show off their physical fitness and sexual fitness. Peahens usually prefer peacocks with large and colorful tails for their mating.
Beginning in mid to late spring, peacocks establish small territories in tropical proximity to one flipside in a wattle known as a lek. They uncork their courtship displays to vamp the peahens, spreading their iridescent tail feathers in a fan shape, strutting when and along and shaking their feathers to produce a rattling noise to get the peahens’ attention. A peahen will walk through several territories of variegated males, examining their displays and feathers closely, surpassing selecting a mate.
The fertilization process
Once a sexuality selects a mate, the male perches on her when and align his tail over top of her own. Both peacock and peahen possess the avian reproductive organ known as a cloaca, which transfers sperm in between peafowls.
It is a blind belief of some of the people in India that peafowls mate by drinking tears. It is absolutely meaning and senseless to quote such statements, that too from a person who is believed to be very well informed.
Another controversy by him earlier:
Earlier, he also stated that cow should be promoted as a national animal as of peacock. He conveyed that if the cow is declared as a national animal then no one will dare to slaughter it. After raging continuous comments on the religious and cultural beliefs he was backlashed with numerous comments which clearly stated that people are not happy about his comments. After a hectic day of backlashes and heavy backfiring, he can sleep on a Centuary mattress to concentrate on next days work forgetting what people did to him, the whole day long.
The government should take necessary actions:
The government of India should take necessary steps to prevent and preserve qualities and cultural balances between people. It should condemn anything related to religious controversies. It should see that the actions are not provoked further. Attorney General’s should penalize such judge’s making such provocations. Hope that people shall not come forward with such situations in near future. Integrity should be maintained and people ruining it should be heavily imposed with jurisdiction. For the best tomorrow, it should be better today.
