I wouldn’t want to comment. If there is, I am sorry to hear that such a thing would have happened, but I never would have expected any of my colleagues to do this.

The attempts of some people, including some of the advocates who claimed to have appeared in the matter, to assign an ill-motive in granting such extension, again discloses the mind-set of journalists who base their articles on innuendos in order to make out a ‘story’ to bolster their reputation as investigative journalists.

If the constitutional rights of the people have been affected, it is the duty of the judiciary to see that they are duly protected

Altamas Kabir (Former Chief Justice of India)

There is no question of encroachment. You see, if somebody does not do his work, then, we as the court, we have the power of mandamus to tell him to do his work. There is no question of over-reaching. It is a question of people not doing their work, making them do their work

He also has immense wisdom and a kind of self-discipline that was not liked by many but he stood by what he decided and thought was correct.

We do not mind a studied fair criticism. If you know a judge is corrupt, take a position and tell the CJI. Do not bring the entire judiciary into disrepute…Please don’t dismantle an institution without telling how to build a better one.

In the end it may be stated that the true value of a decision lies in its propriety and not in the decision being right or wrong

S. H. Kapadia (Former Chief Justice of India)

In the matters after matters, we find that the efficacy and ethics of the governmental authorities are progressively coming under challenge before this Court by way of PIL for failure to perform their statutory duties. If this continues, a day might come when the rule of law will stand reduced to a rope of sand

S. H. Kapadia (Former Chief Justice of India)

Please remember that in times of trouble do what you are obligated to do.

S. H. Kapadia (Former Chief Justice of India)

You [Judges] should have professionalism, objectivity, judicial reticence and knowledge more subtle than intellect.

S. H. Kapadia (Former Chief Justice of India)

Do the right thing. Rest leave it to God. We judges can't change the world. If you do your duty and dispense justice, you have done your job.

S. H. Kapadia (Former Chief Justice of India)

I started my career as a Class IV employee and the only asset I possess is integrity
