His Achievement

  • He is one of the finest judges and administrators

  • He has redefined judgeship

  • A judge, by virtue of his chosen profession, chooses to become an ascetic, distant from the society he lives in, yet immersed in it so deep that he is confronted with the rawness of its existential struggle every day. Chief Justice of India SH Kapadia is a person who understands it too well.

    “A judge must inevitably choose to be a little aloof and isolated from the community at large. He should not be in contact with lawyers, individuals or political parties, their leaders or ministers unless it be on purely social occasions,’’ Kapadia said while delivering the MC Setalvad Memorial lecture on Judicial ethics in April 2011.

    Since taking over as the Chief Justice on May 12, 2010, Kapadia has worked tirelessly to restore the diminishing dignity and credibility of the Supreme Court as the final forum for justice seekers. With a single stroke of the pen, he stopped reckless mining in Bellary. He disqualified the crucial appointment of Central Vigilance Commissioner  (CVC) reminding the prime minister and his government that processes must stand the test of integrity. In the Vodafone case, Kapadia pointed out that laws are not open to unduly liberal interpretations. A corporate lawyer said that the Vodafone judgement reinforced to the world the independence of the country’s judiciary.

      We hardly have 60 days left for the Chief Justice Of India to continue in his office. We sincerely hope another Parsi Zoroastrian of same honest status takes over. I know it is extremely difficult to expect this in India, but Almighty God knows better. We can always pray for the same.

      Your enthusiasm for appointment of another Parsi Zoroastrian is understandable. But I would prefer a person of any community, who will be just in protecting our traditions (not dokhmenshi which is unworkable) properties and trusts and not allow our community to be bullied by the other larger communities.
