Required fields are marked * The vortex mask shown at left is made out of synthetic diamond. Viewed with an scanning electron microscope, right, the “vortex” microstructure of the mask is revealed. Image credit: University of Liège/Uppsala UniversityA new device on the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii has delivered its first images, showing a ring of planet-forming dust around a star, and separately, a cool, star-like body, called a brown dwarf, lying near its companion star.The device, called a vortex coronagraph, was recently installed inside NIRC2 (Near Infrared Camera 2), the workhorse infrared imaging camera at Keck. It has the potential to image planetary systems and brown dwarfs closer to their host stars than any other instrument in the world.“The vortex coronagraph allows us to peer into the regions around stars where giant planets like Jupiter and Saturn supposedly form,” said Dmitri Mawet, research scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech, both in Pasadena. “Before now, we were only able to image gas giants that are born much farther out. With the vortex, we will be able to see planets orbiting as close to their stars as Jupiter is to our sun, or about two to three times closer than what was possible before.”The new vortex results are presented in two papers, both published in the January 2017 issue of The Astronomical Journal. One study, led by Gene Serabyn of JPL, the overall lead of the Keck vortex project, presents the first direct image of the brown dwarf called HIP79124 B. This brown dwarf is located 23 astronomical units from a star (an astronomical unit is the distance between our sun and Earth) in a nearby star-forming region called Scorpius-Centaurus.“The ability to see very close to stars also allows us to search for planets around more distant stars, where the planets and stars would appear closer together. Having the ability to survey distant stars for planets is important for catching planets still forming,” said Serabyn. He also led a team that tested a predecessor of the vortex device on the Hale Telescope at Caltech’s Palomar Observatory, near San Diego. In 2010, the team secured high-contrast images of three planets orbiting in the distant reaches of the star system called HR8799.The second vortex study, led by Mawet, presents an image of the innermost of three rings of dusty, planet-forming material around the young star called HD141569A. The results, when combined with infrared data from NASA’s Spitzer and WISE missions, and the European Space Agency’s Herschel mission, reveal that the star’s planet-forming material is made up of pebble-size grains of olivine, one of the most abundant silicates in Earth’s mantle. The data also show that the temperature of the innermost ring imaged by the vortex is about minus 280 degrees Fahrenheit (100 Kelvin, or minus 173 degrees Celsius), a bit warmer than our asteroid belt.“The three rings around this young star are nested like Russian dolls and undergoing dramatic changes reminiscent of planetary formation,” said Mawet. “We have shown that silicate grains have agglomerated into pebbles, which are the building blocks of planet embryos.”About the vortex coronagraphThe vortex was invented in 2005 by Mawet while he was at the University of Liege in Belgium. The Keck vortex coronagraph was built by a combination of the University of Liege, Uppsala University in Sweden, JPL and Caltech.The first science images and results from the vortex instrument demonstrate its ability to image planet-forming regions hidden under the glare of stars. Stars outshine planets by a factor of few thousand to a few billion, making the dim light of planets very difficult to see, especially for planets that lie close to their stars. To deal with this challenge, researchers have invented Instruments called coronagraphs, which typically use tiny masks to block the starlight, much like blocking the bright sun with your hand or a car visor to see better.What makes the vortex coronagraph unique is that it does not block the starlight with a mask, but instead redirects light away from the detectors using a technique in which light waves are combined and canceled out. Because the vortex doesn’t require an occulting mask, it has the advantage of taking images of regions closer to stars than other coronagraphs. Mawet likens the process to the eye of a storm.“The instrument is called a vortex coronagraph because the starlight is centered on an optical singularity, which creates a dark hole at the location of the image of the star,” said Mawet. “Hurricanes have a singularity at their centers where the wind speeds drop to zero — the eye of the storm. Our vortex coronagraph is basically the eye of an optical storm where we send the starlight.”What’s next for the vortexIn the future, the vortex will look at many more young planetary systems, in particular planets near the “frost lines,” which are the region around a star where temperatures are cold enough for volatile molecules, such as water, methane and carbon dioxide, to condense into solid icy grains. The frost line is thought to divide a solar system into regions where planets are likely to become rocky or gas giants. Surveys of the frost line region by the vortex coronagraph will help answer ongoing puzzles about a class of hot, giant planets found extremely close to their stars — the “hot Jupiters,” and “hot Neptunes.” Did these planets first form close to the frost line and migrate in, or did they form right next to their stars? “With a bit of luck, we might catch planets in the process of migrating through the planet-forming disk, by looking at these very young objects,” Mawet said.“The power of the vortex lies in its ability to image planets very close to their star, something that we can’t do for Earth-like planets yet,” said Serabyn. “The vortex coronagraph may be key to taking the first images of a pale blue dot like our own.”The Keck Observatory is managed by Caltech and the University of California. In 1996, NASA joined as a one-sixth partner in the Keck Observatory. JPL is managed by Caltech for NASA.

The petition has been filed by one Arun Saravanan contending that certain private companies are adopting the “arbitrary actions” of cost cutting and firing their employees during these distressing times of the global pandemic. He has averred that such practices will lead to mental distress and agony in the minds of the employees, while also violating their Fundamental Right to Profession and Right to life as envisaged under Article 19(1)(g) and Article 21 of the Constitution of India respectively. The Petitioner, through M/s S. Nirmal Aditya, and L. Narasimha Varman, has pointed out that the Prime Minister has time and again urged all establishments and employers in the country not to terminate services or cut wages of their employees. Further, the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment had also issued a circular, seeking cooperation of the Public and Private establishment employers, to the above effect. In this backdrop, the Petitioner has urged the court to direct the Respondent State to issue a circular so as to ensure that the employees of all categories in Private sector, not limited to service sector, are not terminated/ compelled to resign and do not face arbitrary reduction in their wages under the guise of the Nation-Wide Lockdown. “This public interest litigation is being filed in order to avoid the inhuman treatment being meted out by employers to their employees and workers in the Private sector including Service sector, by arbitrarily issuing termination notices, imposing steep wage cuts unilaterally, sending workers and employees on indefinite unpaid leave thereby depriving the salary of the working class,” the plea states. A similar petition has also been filed by before the Supreme Court by Rajesh Inamdar and National Information Technology Sena, seeking relief for employees against lay-off, termination and pay cuts by private entities. Journalists Unions have also moved the Supreme Court against all media organizations that have laid off employees or forced them to take remuneration kickbacks in wake of the lockdown.

Vinod Chandran and MR Anitha held that the said right is available only to a woman in a domestic relationship. However, the court observed that a divorced wife occupying a shared household can be evicted only in accordance with law. The bench was considering a reference from a single bench which noticed a conflict between two single bench judgments Sulaiman Kunju v. Nabeesa Beevi [2015 (3) KHC 5] and Bipin v. Meera [2016(5)KHC 367]. The conflict is with respect to the rights of a divorced woman to invoke the provisions of Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. The court also considered the question whether the order of residence obtained by a wife in a shared household would seize automatically on a divorce being granted subsequently.The bench answered the reference as follows:(i) A divorced wife would not be entitled to the right of residence conferred under S.17 under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005, for reason of that right being available only to a woman in a domestic relationship.(ii) A divorced wife would be included under the definition ‘aggrieved person’. A divorced wife occupying a shared household can be evicted only in accordance with law. A divorced wife can approach the Magistrate’s Court for an order under S.19 if she is residing in the shared household. The residence orders passed in such cases, would be subject to any proceeding for eviction in accordance with law, initiated by the husband, as contemplated under S.17(2).(iii) There can be no order to put a divorced woman in possession of a shared household, from where she had separated long back, and the relief can only be of restraining dispossession.Conflicting JudgmentsIn Bipin, though there was no order of residence sought by the divorced wife, the court had held that a divorced woman is entitled to invoke the provisions of DV Act as against her husband, in Sulaiman Kunju, it was held that a divorced wife is not entitled to get any of the reliefs under Section 19 [Residence Orders]. This was after the court noticed that the second limb of the definition of ‘domestic relationship’ specifically signifies that the first limb attracts when they are related by consanguinity, marriage or through a relationship in the nature of marriage, adoption or are family members living together as a joint family. It was held that a divorced wife does not satisfy the second limb of the definition of the domestic relationship. ‘Aggrieved person’ includes divorced womenReferring to various precedents, the court observed that the definition clause of ‘aggrieved person’, as per the dictum of the Supreme Court includes a divorced woman and Sulaiman Kunju to that extent is not good lawBut we have to keep in mind that the Hon’ble Supreme Court had time and again held that a divorced wife could invoke the provisions of the DV Act for the purpose of enforcing obligations arising from the past relationship like custody, maintenance and other monetary reliefs, compensation and even orders ensuring personal safety of the wife and children. In that context the definition of ‘aggrieved person’ cannot be given a restrictive meaning only in cases where a residence order is sought under S.19. The definition clause of ‘aggrieved person’, as per the dictum of the Hon’ble Supreme Court includes a divorced woman and Sulaiman Kunju to that extent is not good law.A divorced wife who is continuing in the shared household at the time of divorce though entitled to seek for a residence order under S.19, can continue only till she is evicted by due process of law. While answering the reference, the bench observed that there are no precedents which specifically deal with the question of a divorced woman enforcing the right of residence under S.17. Referring to Section 17 of the Act, the bench observed thus:”As per subsection (1), the right to reside in the shared household has been conferred on ‘every woman in a domestic relationship’. There is substantial variation insofar as the words ‘has been’ ‘had’ or ‘have’ not having been used in the above provision and the right conferred is on a woman in a subsisting relationship. However, sub-section (2) of S.17 and S.19 speaks again of ‘aggrieved person’, which takes in a divorced wife. A divorced wife continuing in a shared household would be entitled to seek the remedy under S.19 and can be evicted therefrom only in accordance with law (S.17(2)). The order passed under S.19 would be subject to any proceedings in accordance with law. This takes in circumstances in which the divorced woman, who is  at the time of the divorce or thereafter, residing in the shared household itself being enabled to approach the Magistrate under the DV Act. Insofar as a divorced wife, who is no longer living in the shared household, she cannot be put back in possession. The perceptive legislative exercise is in so far as conferring a woman in a domestic relationship, the right of residence in the shared household, while a divorced wife who is continuing in the shared household at the time of divorce though entitled to seek for a residence order under S.19, can continue only till she is evicted by due process of law.”In this context, we also notice that the absurdity pointed out by the learned Counsel for the petitioner, insofar as a divorced wife being allowed to continue in the house of the divorced husband can be avoided by resorting to Clause (f) of S.19, which enables the Court to direct the respondent to secure the same level of alternate accommodation for the aggrieved person as enjoyed by her in the shared household or to pay rent for the same. This comes within the scope of maintenance entitled to a distressed woman. In addition, the Court will also be empowered to grant compensation as provided under S.22 and continued maintenance, which even a divorced wife who remains unmarried, is entitled under S.125, for which S.20 of the DV Act can be invoked. Thus the legislation advances the cause of destitute and derelict women and ensures that they are not left to the  vagaries of life only for reason of a divorce obtained by the husbandIn the instant case, the court noted that  the complainant was in a domestic relationship as a wife at the time the application was filed before the Magistrate’s Court under the DV Act. We find the application filed by the wife against the husband before the Family Court to be maintainable, since she was in a domestic relationship at the time the jurisdiction was invoked, the bench said.Case: Mr.Ramachandra Warrior vs Jayasree [Crl.Rev.Pet.No.3079 OF 2009] Also read: Can Divorced Wife Claim Right To Residence Under Domestic Violence Act?
