The "Claims on Privacy" is an essay justifying the categorization of privacy as a generic natural right like the right to life and liberty. An inextricable link has been drawn between dignity and privacy in the essay through the life story of a fictional character XYZ as no contour can really be drawn to an abstract right in a system which can't be tailor-made. Various articles published by the author on his blog privacy.ankurmutreja.com have also been added as appendices. The author is a lawyer and a privacy exponent. This essay is his sincere attempt to educate himself about privacy, which is a right less understood. He makes no claims to educate others. Even if the readers get entertained, the author would accept it gracefully as an accidental gain.
