The law has shifted quite a bit from the archaic position. The Supreme Court in Thamma Venkata Subbamma v Thamma Rattamma discussed in detail the position of the law with regards to alienation of property by way of gifts. It stated that gifts made by any one coparcener of joint family property, even if only their own undivided share, was void until and unless it was with the consent of the other coparceners. It also stated that the reason for this is to prevent breakdown of joint families. This ratio was recently applied in R. Kuppayee v Raja Gounder, Baljinder Singh v Rattan Singh and in K.C. Laxmana v K.C. Chandrappa.
The law with regards to sale of undivided interest in coparcenary property by a coparcener is divergent depending on which state one refers to. In Bombay, Madras and Madhya Pradesh, a coparcener need not take consent from the other coparceners to sell his undivided interest in coparcenary property. In other states, like West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Punjab, alienations, even if made for consideration, are void if consent of the other coparceners was not obtained.
With regards to alienation in favour of any of the coparceners, it has been held that such an alienation will take effect not as an alienation but as a renunciation of property and will not work only in favour of the desired alienee coparcener but each and every coparcener.
Under the codified law, Section 30 of the Hindu Succession Act, 1956, a coparcener may dispose off his share in the family property by will. This has also been upheld by the Supreme Court.
Alienation by sole surviving coparcener:
The ownership of coparcenary property is with the coparceners, who can, by collective consent, ...

- Marx's theory of alienation has to do with the separation of things that logically belong together. According to Marx, alienation is a universal result of capitalism. Marx's theory of alienation is based upon his observation that, within the capitalist mode of production, workers consistently lose determination of their lives and fates by being deprived of the right to envision themselves as the administrator of their actions. Workers become autonomous, self-realized people, but are lead and diverted into goals and activities set down by those who have power.... [tags: Marx's Theory of Alienation]

- It’s self-evident, feelings & emotions are more intimate & personal than percentages, statistics, & numbers. “The Secretary Chant”, a poem about a woman so engrossed in her job she is turning into it, has the theme of alienation. As does “Alienation & Orange Juice: The Invisibility of Labor”, is an article that speaks about a commercial that has no humans shown and causes the alienation of the workers from the end result of their work by the absence of their portrayal. Those texts are both effective to certain degrees in their portrayal of alienation, so one can be considered better than the other in their manner of treating the subject....

- Alienation and Moral Dilemma as Portrayed by Nathaniel Hawthorne Nathaniel Hawthorn was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1804 during Puritan times. He created many stories that reflect his life experiences growing up as a Puritan. He writes stories that end with a moral that was learned through the struggles of the characters. These characters are almost always faced with a dilemma where they must choose what is right versus what is wrong. Another common theme in his writing is alienation.... [tags: essays papers]

- Exploration of Alienation “It has to go”, cried his sister. “That’s the only answer, Father. You just have to try to get rid of the idea that it’s Gregor. Believing it for so long, that is our real misfortune. But how can it be Gregor. If it were Gregor, he would have realized long ago that it isn’t possible for human beings to live with such a creature, and would have gone away of his own free will” (Kafka 52). The relationship between family member’s in Kafka’s Metamorphosis is an interesting theme addressed, and somewhat distressing subject.... [tags: essays research papers fc]

- Progress or Alienation Our society has alienated itself far from the reality of the way things are and the way they should be, through the use and misuse of scientific knowledge and technology. Science is defined as, “a logical organized method of obtaining information through direct, systematic observation.” Sometimes science does not seem organized, in fact it seems like it opens us up to a different realm of possibilities that have consequences far beyond our wildest dreams. Scientific knowledge is something that sometimes cannot be controlled or monitored, but needs to be for the sake of the greater population.... [tags: Technology Scientific Technological Essays]

- Alienation in Modern Society I will compare and contrast Mike Newell's Dance with a Stranger and Danny Boyle's Shallow Grave in terms of alienation. The reasoning behind my choice is that these two films have explicit characteristics in the frame of alienation. Both highlight modern alienation in terms of alienated sexuality, isolation, normlessness whereas Newell discusses alienation also in class and gender difference perspective; Boyle discusses alienation in the working place as an alienated labour....

- Parental Alienation Syndrome is defined as a syndrome where one parent (usually the custodial parent) alienates the child or children from the other parent. A child psychiatrist organized this syndrome by the name of Richard Gardner. The fact that Parental Alienation Syndrome is used in custody litigations makes it a very controversial issue. The syndrome tends to target one parent and favor the other, sometimes leaving the child in compromising situations. Also, Gardner's 'syndrome' lacks scientific background and is seen as nothing more than a theory by many other professionals.... [tags: World Cultures]
