Mr. Mittal Bharati's initiative is a good one. Most CSR efforts go into education or Swach Bharat efforts but one rarely thinks of the poor fellow who is in jail on some minor charges and may be there forever almost for lack of money to pay bail if granted.
This reminds me of an article in the Times of India under a column "100 years ago" which has long been stopped. Wish I had kept that article. It was the story of an unknown small-time Parsi trader who used to go to the Small causes court regularly and pay the small amounts of bail for poor under-trials. The man was later known as Sir Jamshedji Jeejeebhoy,1st Baronet, one of the richest men in the business community in Bombay in the late 18th-early 19th century.His philantrophy is well known to hundreds of beneficiaries even today who use, for example, the J.J. Hospital or the J.J. School of Art and many other charities.

Process licences for dance bars: SC tells Maharashtra
The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Maharashtra government to consider and decide in two weeks applications for licence by hoteliers for dance performances in beer bars and restaurants.
 
An apex court bench of Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Prafulla C. Pant gave two weeks' time as the court was told that the Maharashtra government has not carried out its October 15 order both in letter as well as spirit.
 
The court said steps would be taken to ensure that there was no obscenity during dance performances.
 
By its October 15 order, the apex court had stayed the operation of provision of the Maharashtra Police Act that prohibited dance performances at eating places, beer bars and restaurants.
 
The court had noted that the provision was brought back in the Maharashtra Police Act in 2014 after being held ultra vires in 2013 by the top court.
