It is no exaggeration to say that privacy is the biggest issue of our time. In academia, human evolution itself has been studied through the prism of privacy as a factor, given that all sexual relations throughout the ages, whether verbal or sexual, have been characterized by varying degrees of intimacy; and now that human interaction has gone so deeply into the Internet, we must grapple with what “the record” might mean as a serious departure from the past. We are clearly exposed. Perhaps much more than we can imagine. But can the law guarantee what technology has taken away? In India, the Supreme Court upheld privacy as a fundamental right in 2017, but the legislative initiative has so far failed. After long delays and lengthy negotiations, a revised draft law on the protection of personal data is expected soon. While its actual details remain under wraps, the expected deviations from the latest draft of the bill have caused a stir both online and off.
