Courts and Their Judgments
In recent times, we have grown accustomed to believing that the judicial system is in a shambles, or at least dangerously on the verge of collapse. The possible reasons are known: exploding dockets, poor infrastructure, chronic shortage of judges and judicial staff, and a set of procedures that privileges adjournment over disposal. To the public at large, deep suspicions about class bias and corruption in the judiciary, as well as a belief that it is given to pliancy before power, influence and wealth are much larger concerns. At the same time, one cannot ignore the ambivalence in the way our society looks at the judiciary. On the one hand, much of the citizenry looks up to the judiciary as a bulwark against executive excesses and legislative caprice. On the other, the institution is seen as effete and ineffective, and even insensitive to the crying needs of society. Though Shourie begins with his personal experience of the mechanical and inconsiderate ways of the lower courts, he expands his dissection of the ways of the judiciary to cover the major ill afflicting the system.
Jump to navigation. Armed with a written constitution, our proud boast has always been that we are a nation governed by laws and not by men. Arun Shourie's new book shows that this is true only in theory: the law is ultimately what the justices of the final court say it is. The book is a critique of the work of the court - an effective and timely counterpoint to the paean of praises on the court's functioning during its golden jubilee celebrations at the turn of the new century. Shourie's lack of formal legal training is neither noticeable nor apparent in the text.
