Chief Justice Mehr Chand Mahajan
Lives of great men are a source of inspiration. Chief Justice Mehr Chand Mahajan was one such man. This book gives a fair idea of what that great man was, what he thought and what he did. It traces Chief Justice Mahajan’s life as a lawyer, a Judge and a politician. Keeping in view the contemporary relevance of the Kashmir issue, readers will find the biography interesting as it discusses the prominent role played by Dr Mahajan in the accession of the State of Jammu and Kashmir to India. As a Judge, he was incisive and forthright making landmark decisions with warmth, wisdom and enduring humanity; few of his most famous judgments have been discussed in this book. The book also includes few of his papers and addresses on important issues concerning the country that affirm the fact that Dr Mahajan had the heart of a patriot. This book will certainly be a prized collection for any library.
Ceaseless and Relentless Journey
"... the story of a man dedicated to the cause of justice... ...He came up in life with steely determination..."
The "Ceaseless and Relentless Journey" of Ramaswamy's life as unfolded in the pages of this book is truer than truth itself. Those impossible situations in life of one who did not have the privilege of birth, of caste or of status in a society riddled with contradictions and social absurdities, Justice Ramaswamy surmounted. Challenges in his life were many - not the least being the considerable braving of social obstacles by relentless striving with determination and fortitude, where lesser men would have lost hope, given-up and resigned themselves to the inevitable fate of anonymity. His life holds a stirring message for posterity.
