    Spontaneous Reaction:

    One can no better , instead of expressing own individualistic views/ opinion, than drawing the attention of all concerned to the following published material:

    1. The Judiciary and the Legal Profession Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

    (Speech of late N A Palkhivala delivered under the auspices of Bombay High Court , 125th Anniversary Celebrations -September 1987)

    2. Crisis of Public Faith in the Judiciary
    Time for National Introspection

    (His article published in the Times of India- jULY 1990)

    (SOURCE, book: We , the Nation – THE LOST DECADES)

    Coming from (said / written by) the fondly called- Nani, the widely acknowledged and most renowned legal luminary, a constitutional law expert of par excellence, also one of the very few leading great thinkers of our times, a mindful reading of those material, offered /available on a silver plater, one is sure that, might help in every right minded professional (he be a lawyer or CA or any other) being immensely benefited, in an attempt to imbibe thereby accomplish ‘personal excellence’ (in its profound sense).

    kudos for daring to voice against corrupt officers be it in ITAT or CIT (A). Kolkata has long list of such officers including one Mr XXXX. Like in some states there should be a system of declaring award for most corrupt income tax official through secret ballots.Nowadays even probationatory IRS are asking PARTY KAISA HAI in their first posting itself. Ye to roj ki baat hai

    I feel such resolutions can seriously mar the independence of judiciary. A judge has to be beyond fear or favour. If the bar stats passing such resolutions every member will be compelled to behave in a particular manner and also favour professionals holding high posts in bar. It is a known fact that a lot of issues go unreported because it is not against high and mighty at bar.
