It is really nice to see the recent legal history, the Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar, will have three Constitution Benches functioning instantaneously, along with the usual vacation Bench, in a historic step away from its colonial tradition of a prolonged summer vacation spanning almost two months from May to July. Our Hon’ble Chief Justice is a great role model and leading by example. Every one whether he is a judge, an advocate, a medical practitioner, a civil servant or a politician etc., should follow our CJI’s step. Courts should function like any other government office. In these days of severe damage to the image of judiciary on various counts, this effort salvages the lost glory of our judicial system. The extreme delay in the delivery of justice will result in the loss of fear amidst the citizens which is the prime factor in reducing or inhibiting the criminal side of the humans. I sincerely feel that the judiciary and police departments must plan and present the demand for the provision of men and material necessary for the population numbers.
