EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

When it comes to Indian democracy and the undeniable fact that it has thrived for over six decades despite the size of the country and diversity of the people, the first thing that strikes us is the way Indian judiciary saw this country through its darkest hours into the light. That speaks volumes about the acumen and integrity of the judges, then as now. The higher judiciary in India always did and continues to enjoy the trust and respect of the people, which is why it is of paramount importance that everything is done to protect the great institution and its reputation against all harm, actual or possible.

When it comes to retirement of the judges and its impact on the 'independence of judiciary', it must be ensured that the life judicial officers lead after their retirement is a life of dignity and financial security not for any reason other than that they, after having served the country long enough, deserve it, and their abilities must not be allowed to go waste. To say that judicial pronouncements made by a judge of higher judiciary could be affected by post-retirement concerns and considerations is to liken judges to shopkeepers. Judges of the higher judiciary are perfectly capable of keeping their judicial pronouncements clear of and uncorrupted by their personal concerns.
