Shri P Mohana Chandran ji & Friends All,

In a social setting and a polity of the kind, we are today, HEREDITY -- in a very natural, gentle and an obvious way take/s over, even the professional judgments (or judiciary), in the lower law-courts to the highest Courts, in our democratic country of "over a-billion" -- justice at times is likely to go 'astray'. Is that not so ?  Should the judicial system not look for ways to fix some norms ?
For instance, if the elder wizened ones charge Rs 8-10 Lac rupees for a day's appearance, and his or her close or far off relation charges rupees 1 lac a day, is justice not likely to get biased and wrong, or illogical judgments start seeing the light of day ?

Or, in the political arena successful justices take on Governor-ships as has been happening in India, and then the constitutional position starts getting tainted with wrong and false or illegitimate politicization, what sort of a democratic process will we get to be ?  
Open and visible biases or materialism, take over the polity and then also the judicial system/s, how good is then the kind of democracy we live in ?
Witnesses change sides (with money taking over) and all the rest of what we suffer, in a free or democratic India slowly or not-so-slowly, slips to be a sham ! Is that not so ? And WHO WILL START CORRECTING THE SLIPPAGES ?

Shri Vijay Kapoor refers to an observation reported to have been made by the SC to the effect that'a judge who passed an absurd order cannot be questioned'.Shri Bhagvanji Raivani rightly queried,What is that order .In what context ,the above observation is made.Judges should decide without fear or favour.A reasoned judgement of Mr. Justice X of a lower Court may appear to be ( in in all probability ) an absurd judgement as per the views of Mr Justice Y of a higher Court.The higher court can rectify the wrong in an Appeal or Revision as the case may be.The party affected is saved as the absurd order will be reversed or quashed by the Higher Court.The Judge who passed the absurd order can not be punished.Honest and upright judges will not pass absurd orders knowing it to be absurd.That does not mean that an honest and upright judge will not pass an absurd order.The existing legal system will take care of such things .
Advocates like Shri Salve are assisted by a team of legal experts.A Judge shall not be influenced by the personality of the lawyer or the accused.There are thousands of young lawyers in India who are better than Shri Palkhiwala(late),ShriSalve etc. They are not getting oppertunity to  show their metal .There are brilliant lawyers in Poone than Mumbai.These brilliant lawyers in Poone are not able to establish an office in Mumbai.Right thinking people can think of creating a trust to facilitate young lawyers from mofussil to start practice in the cities .if such an oppertunity is given ,within 10 years, you can see most of the brilliant lawyers in India are not the sons aand in-laws of leading lawyers or children of City dwellers.Give a chance to brilliant young law graduates.---you can see a sea change.

Question then arises: that if the "judge"  even in an absurd order cannot be questioned, can a judge who passes a criminal order, say, "go and shoot Mr. X" or "go and commit rape" or "burn down the house" can also not be brought to book !? Then can an absurd "judge" who passes an order, say, "I hereby sack the President of India" or "The parliament stands dissolved" be not brought to book ?
