Episode 3: Commercial Surrogacy
In 2007, for the first time, the Supreme Court, in Baby Manji v. Union of India ruled on the legality of surrogacy in India. In this case, the Supreme Court did not provide any definite answer. Rather, it adopted a more hands-on approach in resolving the personal and legal issues affecting the parties before it. This has marked the Supreme Court’s approach to surrogacy ever since. Though the issues in Baby Manji did involve substantial questions of law – those involving a surrogate child, the rights of the commissioning parents; and the legality of a surrogacy contract, the Supreme Court has maintained a complete silence on substantive legal questions that this issue raises. This silence has allowed the government to keep changing its stance as demonstrated by the multiple versions of the Surrogacy Bill that have emerged in the public domain since 2008. Cut to 2019, the Surrogacy Bill is still pending in Parliament and is a complete contrast to the first bill that was drafted in 2008. Through all of this, the Supreme Court has watched on silently. In this episode, we revisit the role played by the Supreme Court at the very beginning and its subsequent role in the regulation of surrogacy in India. Important Links a) Baby Manji v. Union of India b) Outsourcing Surrogacy in India, Red Border Films c) Latest version of the surrogacy bill.The post Episode 3: Commercial Surrogacy first appeared on The Complete Justice Podcast.

Episode 2: The National Anthem
We’ve all been taught and told to stand for the National Anthem of our country, when it is played. We’ve stood up in attention for our morning school assemblies, for Republic Day, Independence Day, and all such commemorative functions. Since 2016, we’ve also stood for the National Anthem in movie theaters owing to the Supreme Court’s orders in the case of ‘Shyam Narayan Chouksey v. Union of India’. While most of us have debated on the limits, strength and quantifiable extent of patriotic fervor this nation has to stand – or not stand – for the national anthem, how many of us truly know what the law says when it comes standing for the national anthem – and specifically in a movie hall? This episode of Complete Justice tells us about the history and the effects of the case and the orders passed by the Supreme Court in Shyam Narayan Chouksey v. Union of India – who was the petitioner, what rights were brought up for adjudication by the Supreme Court, and finally, what laws were relied upon by the Supreme Court to pass orders to play the national anthem (and stand up for it) in a movie hall.
