Dear All

The latest revelations by Justice Chellameshwar of Supreme Court are really shocking. His statement indicates that the collegium fixes its matches by practising opacity! That may be tolerated in cricket, but unpardonable at the level of the Apex Court in the matter of appointing judges. On top of it the Chief Justice had the boldness (I do not have the audacity to use a stronger word) to attack the PM openly and malign him on the Independence day. It would have been perhaps not so bad  if he had said something against the Government generally even on the National Independence day, but his unprovoked personal aggression against the elected PM and his I. Day speech has brought down the dignity of the Apex Court.

 Modi never criticized the Chief Justice personally on any public platform by way of retaliation. Even after the recent tear jerker public episode involving the CJI  Modi's response was very conciliatory. Even granting that one's heart bleeds for India and its citizens, he should not wear it on his sleeves especially when there is a conflict of interest. 

Normally we does not expect to hear very strong expressions from the judges when any hearings take place. Judges are expected to keep their counsel, ask firm questions, seek clarifications and show their skills by writing really wise judgments of great quality and permanence instead of becoming visible in newspaper headlines every other day. That act should be left to politicians who need legitimate publicity to get reelected. . Whatever their flaws, politicians are accountable to the electorate. Judges are neither elected nor accountable or answerable to anybody and that is the truth that they themselves appreciate. Let them keep calm, air no dramatic opinions in courts or outside, seek no publicity, be known for integrity, and deliver speedy judgments of quality. If possible let them also live a simple and detached life to inspire our country.
With regards 
Prof N.Natarajan

When floor was opened my questions were.
Do we have true democracy/hypocrisy /damenocracy ?.
I want your answer in one word.
His answer was true democracy.
So we have such CEC in India.
