The Senior most Judge of the Supreme Court Justice TS Thakur was in Goa and it was a wealth of information besides an enriching invaluable opportunity hear him speak. The very suave, gentle, affable yet very firm Justice Thakur spoke with command, confidence and mastery on the various issues raised and aptly dissected by him. He articulated from his heart and with a very clear mind.
The exceptionally eloquent and an excellent communicator, Justice Thakur takes over as Chief Justice of India on 3rd December with a tenure of just over a year. With his practical rather than a theoretical approach, Justice T.S Thakur may be the much needed hope to lead India’s limping Judiciary to the path to recovery. For the Judiciary to be truly independent there has to be no socializing and cozying up by politicians and advocates with Judges. If Judiciary is reduced to a mouth piece and agents of the government, Courts will end up as dens of chicanery and jugglery.
