Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul of the Supreme Court of India shall be releasing "The Right to Privacy: Arguing for the People" authored by Vivek Sood, Senior Advocate on the Live Law platform on 6th October, 2021 at 5 PM. Justice Siddharth Mridul of Delhi High Court shall adorn the online release as the Guest of Honour and Professor Upendra Baxi, the eminent law professor will speak on a subject of contemporary and future significance- "Compliance and Enforcement of Right to Privacy: An uphill task". The session will be anchored by Dr. Yash Gulati, a leading orthopedic surgeon at Delhi's Apollo Hospital.

This book by Vivek Sood deals with the burning subject of the Right to Privacy especially in present times when the Toolkit, Pegasus, and the Intermediary Rules, 2021 have made headlines this year.

Right to Privacy addresses thought-provoking issues concerning this right. While the right to privacy has been elevated to the status of a fundamental right by the Apex Court, how does it really affect the lives of the people especially in the virtual world? Do we the people realistically enjoy informational privacy while surfing the Internet? Is our privacy protected while we use social media or when we shop online? What are the risks to our privacy from the Aadhaar card? Can the Orwellian Big Brother State watch and profile us citizens in future? How does the Toolkit controversy between the BJP and Congress affect our privacy? How do the Intermediary Rules, 2021, violate our privacy? Do citizens have the right to enjoy sexually explicit material in their private domains? With the Supreme Court recognizing gay sex and adultery as a part of the right to privacy, why shouldn't it extend to paid sex in the private space? In addressing these issues, VivekSood has argued for the people of India.

The book by Sood has received rich praises ahead of its release.

Kudos to the author for penning this work on a valuable, extremely important and a developing subject of Right to Privacy. It's a thought provoking work that must be read by all.

MukulRohatgi, Senior Advocate and former Attorney General for India

Vivek Sood's book touches on a hot button subject of our times to offer valuable insights into the challenges of the present and future.

—RajdeepSardesai, news anchor, journalist and author

This book covers all the facets of the Right to Informational Privacy including the risks of its breach by State and Non-State actors. It's a book that must be read especially since information technology continues to invade our lives as never before.
