  1. Mr. Palkhivala was undoubtedly a genius and every Indian is proud of him especially because he boldly pointed out so many weaknesses and malpractices of our legal system.

    But, it is a shame that we (especially lawyers and judges) pay only a lip service to him.

    Let me give you a concrete example.

    Supreme Court has held in, inter alia, State of Madhya Pradesh v J.S. Bansal (1998) 3 SCC 714, Paras 13-14, that if DE is terminated in favour of an employee, the sealed covers should be opened “immediately” and “without delay”.

    However, State of Maharashtra and High Court of Delhi have been dragging one such case for the last seven years.

    Facts: DE dated 6.7.1988 came to be terminated by High Court on 28.3.2012, after 24 years.

    Alleged plea of SOM is that due to an alleged fire that took place on 21.6.2012, sealed covers have been destroyed.

    And, an alleged reconstruction of record has been allegedly going on for the last seven years.

    On 28.2.2019, matter was adjourned by High Court of Delhi to 28.3.2019 to enable State of Maharashtra to search for the said sealed covers in the office of Union of India.

    On 28.3.2019, again, matter was adjourned to 16.5.2019 for the said purpose.

    And so on and so forth……Ad infinitum.

    But, common law abhors infiniteness.

    The petitioner is being driven from pillar to post. He is a senior citizen; suffering from bronchitis asthma and other old-age-related diseases. He is already exhaused and frustrated. He is virtually living in the departure lounge of God’s airport. His legal heirs (settled abroad) shall not be interested to take the litigation to its logical end.

    Entire career ruined.

    SOM and DHC are out-shylocking Shylock.

    Sealed covers destroyed in a fire. Searching for them till eternity in Milky Way!!!

    The level of insensitivity is appalling.

    Seven long years!!!!!

    State of Maharashtra cannot be allowed to take advantage of its own wrongs.

    But, High Court has been adjourning the matter for last seven years on one false and flimsy pretext after the other, which is not in consonance with its highest traditions.

    Those who are at the helm of affairs seem to lack common sense in an uncommon degree.

    “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more complicated. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

    When Supreme Court has laid down the law for opening the sealed covers immediately, how and why Delhi High Court not showing due regard, obedience and deference to the said law?

    I felt constrained to file a criminal contempt petition arising out of the said obstruction of administration of justice. But, out of patience, good sense and moderation, I have restrained myself.

    Let there be a real transformation and a nation-wide movement for transforming our Courts and Judges Judges from caterpillars into butterflies.
