Constitutional guarantees should be real, not illusory: Justice B D Ahmed



Business Standard, April 2, 2017

Excerpts from Justice B D Ahmed's farewel speech in the Delhi High Court on March 30, 2017:
"What are we, judges and lawyers, here for? Ultimately, beyond the fees and the salaries and career progression and the fame, our lives ought to be and are fashioned by the unending quest for justice — that elusive and difficult goal which is yearned for by the wronged, the downtrodden, the needy, the poor, the marginalised and the innocent.   Yes, we have a remarkable Constitution. It guarantees justice, liberty, equality and fraternity to all citizens of this country. But this guarantee is often missing in reality."
