It is very crucial that only persons with sound knowledge of law and
impeccable integrity be selected as Judges even at the entry level in the
lower Judiciary. The selection of judges through a very transparent laid
down process has to be very meticulous as persons with suspect credentials
and those who cannot interpret the law inflict irreversible damage to the
justice delivery system. It is imperative that politicians should have no
role whatsoever, direct or indirect in the selection, promotion and posting
of Judges. So also it must be ensured that sitting and retired judges do
not orchestrate their incompetent and unworthy relatives, friends and
former chamber colleagues to sneak into Judicial positions. Over the years
we have witnessed some extremely good judges but in anguish have also had
to live up with those from the other end of the spectrum.

We need to have the right persons selected as Judges with their salary and
perks substantially enhanced so that only the best and brightest preside
over the Temples of Justice. The Judiciary should never be manned by
persons who are slanted or aligned to any political party. Judges should
have the spine to crack on illegalities done by any politician, regardless
of the party he is affiliated to and the high position he holds. If Judges
cannot independently balance the scales of Justice, the Courts lose their
very sanctity.

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".

Maybe it’s high time for a concerted effort to cleanse the Aegean Stables
of Indian Judiciary by flushing out those undesirable judges who should
never have landed where they are today.
