Thus Spake Their Lordships


The work eloquently portrays the collective thoughts of the Apex Court. Covering a span of four and half decades the masterpiece presents them artistically and decisively merged respecting the idea and philosophy with efflux of time behind various subjects.
    The compilation is an exposition of arrangement which is topic-wise but not author-centric.The present work emphasises on subject-orientation so that it can benefit the reader, the researcher, the academician, the advocates and the Judges. The qualitative paradigm is clearly spelt out. It can be said with certainty that the book commands serious concentration and simultaneously instils pleasantness.
    Applauded by eminent Judges of the Supreme Court, the second edition of this monumental work has been revised and updated with many new headings like – Extra-Judicial Killings, Foeticide, Hindsight, Honour Crime, Independence of Judiciary, Information Blackout, Normative Jurisprudence, Partner – Right to choose, Patient-Doctor Relationship, Personal Choices, Privacy – Right to, Single Mothers and Women’s Empowerment, etc.
     These quotations relate to many aspects of law and life. Some speak of the role of the State and the Judiciary, some comment on individual rights and freedoms, others remark on nation building – Some are idealist, some downright practical. Quotations from judgments of newly appointed Judges to the Supreme Court have also been incorporated and the Judge Index updated by which readers can refer to the quotes of their idol Judges.
