Does the Law of Attraction Work?

”Be careful what you wish for”, the famous saying we all blurt out in our day to day conversations. This saying is so powerful as I associate it with the ”law of attraction”, attracting like for like. What we put out there is what we receive, do you believe in that law, that we are part of the universal matrix of energy and frequencies? The energy that we expend out there we get the same back. We are governed by laws of the universe we live in, what others may term as ”karma”. People often say they find the things they don’t like manifest in their reality quicker than what they truly love. That I find is how our mindset is designed, we are creatures of fear, and let’s remember, fear is an emotion as much as happiness and sadness are. We fear a lot about lack of money, no … Read More

Evolution of Military Law in the United States

While in service I visited the United States as a guest of the US Air Force. As I was sometimes a presiding officer of Court Martial in India (being legally qualified), I was interested how the US military law functions.

The Unified Military code is a comparatively recent occurrence and was signed into law by President Truman only in 1951. Prior to this the code was amorphous and had very fewer checks and balances. The US military law took almost 175 years to evolve to the present Unified Military Code.

The US was a colony of England till 1776, till a war of Independence … Read More

Choice Of Law In Syndicated Loans And Bonds

INTRODUCTION:

Any relationship between two entities, either persons or institutions, cannot be established except in accordance with some set of rules. These rules may be unenforceable norms or customs of a group or society, or some explicit laws having a binding and enforceable authority.

In case of any problem with these obligations or rights, law of the land would come into action. But if the contracting parties belong to different lands, then there would arise a question as to law of which land should come into force.
