Advocate Bhaskarrao Avhad was the speaker for the event. “Today’s legal provisions and laws are not based on those established by the British but they have relevance in the Vedas. The original scripting of the Vedas had provisions for development of the various Shastras,sciences,commentaries,and legal authorities. The rules of civil and criminal judicial processes,concept of political state,division of state,provisions regarding international law,asylum and extradition have been explained in the Vedas. In fact virtually everything regarding today’s legal provisions have had a mention in the Vedas,” said he. He also spoke about the relevance of these laws laid down thousands of years back in today’s life and how today’s modern legal procedures can incorporate more and more of such ideas to improve the existing judicial system.
