The judiciary needs a Ulysses pact
The Indian judiciary has become all powerful, mostly by taking on enormous authority in policy areas, that are technically beyond its ambit
In the last few weeks, the moral and legal standards of the higher judiciary have taken a perceived turn for the worse. In this instance, it was brought about by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) which highlighted the possibility of corruption and criminal conspiracy to gain some favourable orders. One of the orders in question was passed by a bench with Justice Dipak Misra, now Chief Justice of India (CJI), as the presiding judge.
