I am surprised by the poor understanding of the high office and responsibilities these judges carry with them. In my layman opinion they have failed every way. They could have met all for a cup of tea and sorted these matter within the walls of the courts like they dis yesterday.
We have separate rule for a soldier who complains of his poor quality food. We take serious action against a poor man. We have political parties like congress and others supporting these rebellious judges against the CJI to make small political gains. God help this country in the hands of these personalities.
These judges cast doubts on the Junior judges as incompetent to handle sensitive issues. This is highly irresponsible of them the make in a public platform. This will bring bad name on supreme court and the judgements of these junior judges. As whole country knows there is no justice for the poor more so in the lower courts and now this will add further doubts in the minds of the common man like me. Cases take years most do not see the day till the persons dies. Judges only waste time on giving dates with out reason. When an order is passed the same is not delivered for few more dates without any care for the time and the petitioners anguish. Rich and builders rule the courts.
My humble request to all to please avoid bring these minor and major problems to public space.

Subject: Re: [IAC#RG] JUDICIARY NEEDS TO ACT AS TRUE WATCH DOGS OF DEMOCRACY AND GOOD GOVERNANCE
The mutiny between the four brave senior most Judges of the Supreme Court and the Chief Justice of India was long overdue. This must act as a warning and an alarm to every Indian that our very democracy is in peril.
Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer had said "Even so, the creed of judicial independence is our constitutional 'religion' and, if the executive use Article 222 to imperil this basic tenet, the Court must 'do or die'.
The Constitution of India is very clear on the distinct roles of the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary. It envisages a free, fair and independent Judiciary. The highest standards of judicial independence must be ensured by warding off even the faintest trace of governmental influence on the judiciary.
Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, with the sanctity of other pillars of our democracy severely dented and having gone for a toss, our only hope now remains on the Judiciary.
With the BJP wanting to overpower the Judiciary too, there is a very disturbing disquiet over the slippery slope on which judicial values are slithering. The highest standards of judicial
independence must be ensured by wardingoff even the faintest trace of governmental influence on the judiciary, which is the last hope for thecommon man.
Any direct or indirect interference by the politicians in the selection and appointment of Judges is a threat to the very Independence of the Judiciary. If the Judiciary is reduced to a mouth piece of the government, the
Courts will lose all relevance and end up also as dens of chicanery and jugglery. The Judiciary should never be manned by persons who are tilted or aligned to any political party. Judges should have the spine to crack on illegalities done by all politicians, regardless of how high positions they hold. It has to be ensured that judicial accountability is maintained at all times with every Judge conforming to the highest standards of uprightness and integrity. If Judges cannot independently balance the scales of Justice, the Temples of Justice become pointless.
Caroline Kennedy had also very rightly said "The bedrock of our democracy is the rule of law and that means we have to have an independent judiciary,
judges who can make decisions independent of the political winds that are blowing"
To those very few outdated who have opined that the four Judges should not have gone public, may we remind them of what Lord Harry Woolf, a former Chief Justice of England had said "Like old clocks, our judicial institutions need to be oiled, wound up and set to true time".
