The other day I was lamenting as "I am helpless citizen in India". "I Cannot go to a Court as it takes ages to get redressed."
This is India and anything can happen here. Now the court decided to reach me (Citizens).
"Many a people, including parents who lost their children in road accidents, youngsters who were physically disabled and businessmen who fought bitter legal battle over cheque bounce cases, heaved a sigh relief on Saturday when their cases were solved at a mega Lok Adalat (People's Court) organised on the Madras High Court Bench premises on Saturday.
The highlight of the event was when Supreme Court judge P. Sathasivam, Chief Justice of Madras High Court M. Yusuf Eqbal and other judges including Elipe Dharma Rao, F.M. Ibrahim Kalifulla and R. Banumathi shed their black robes, sat along with litigants and successfully persuaded them to arrive at a settlement instead of fighting the cases in the court halls for years together." - The Hindu, Madurai, December 12, 2010
Now every Judge and every Litigant learn from this and emulate to reduce distress in Justice seeking citizens. If there's is a will there is a way.
It is a great job giving hope to hopeless.
