If I recollect it right, things had taken a turn for the worst after all major movie halls had joined hands to set very high prices with a few exceptions. The ones that were being reasonable were usually very small players, and they couldn't afford to screen in demand or blockbuster movies due to cost.
Given that situation, it probably was not much of a "free market", but many movie multiplexes were collectively looting the society. I was told that Baahubali 2 movie tickets were being sold for Rs 5000 in Bangalore, which is BULLSHIT because I sat my fat arse on a movie hall (arguably better than the movie halls in India) here in Australia to watch the same movie for $23.
I think this move will rather help the common man, and knock some sense into heads of greedy multiplex owners.
I am still on the fence regarding this. But if I am correct, the theater owners in Tamil Nadu at least wanted Flex-Price. Determine the MRP for the ticket price ( say 250-300) but theater decides the actual price.
They wanted to have lower price for weekdays morning and noon shows etc..
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
I know this is dumb however, there is a recent law for it.
"Very recently, a joint order issued by the district magistrate of Varanasi and the city’s police chief stated that any offensive posts, such as rumors or fake news, circulated through WhatsApp or Facebook groups can land the group admin in jail"
So one has to be very careful before becoming admin for such social media platforms or choose the audience carefully.
You can have all the tools in the world but if you don't genuinely believe in yourself, it's useless.
Yes, I am aware of this law and it's what I was talking about. A large number of our politicians are about as intelligent as a pile of rocks when it comes to technology. But yet they're creating laws that govern the usage of technology.
Not a big difference. A few years back a friend of mine sent a lengthy complaint to the head of a public sector bank which put the branch manager into a deep soup. She had a very strong rapport with the local police station and during the compromise, the lady sub inspector was asking my friend, to 'delete' all copies of the email that has been sent to others. Read again. She wasn't asking to delete the copy in his Sent Items but the copy which has been sent to the recipients.
That is the level of technical knowledge our law enforcement has.
She asked the government not to interfere in Muslim religious matters and divine law...
Should the government not "interfere" with me if I slash random people on the streets to death with a lightsaber because I follow the Jedi religion, and the divine law of Jedi religion permits me to do so? Hint: Jedi law, divine law, bovine law, or any other made-up law is NOT above the laws of the land.
...and termed polygamy as a boon for society
Shirley, no sh*t on that one either. Polygamy sure as f*** ain't no boon for the ANY society in this world.
