Justice must have human face, says CJI Dipak Misra
Cji­designate Justice Gogoi says what we wear, eat are no longer little things, and failure to uphold constitutional ideals will mean ‘we’ll continue to kill, hate each other’
History can be sometimes kind, and unkind... In my whole career as a judge, I never dissociated myself from the lady of equity.
JUSTICE DIPAK MISRA, Outgoing CJI
We are divided, perhaps more than ever, by lines of castes, class, gender and religion. We are divided into infinitely variegated communities.
JUSTICE RANJAN GOGOI, Cji-designate

NEW DELHI: The outgoing Chief Justice of India (CJI), Dipak Misra, said India’s judiciary is one of the most robust and strongest institutions in the world, even in the face of attacks and in troubled times. “Our judges are ahead of their counterparts in other parts of the world,” he added, referring to their ability to deal with complex issues.


Justice Misra, India’s 45th chief justice, has presided over several important cases , and been part of benches that have delivered important judgments – decriminalising homosexuality, ruling that privacy is a fundamental right, establishing the constitutional validity of Aadhaar even while protecting the rights of individuals, and allowing women of all ages to enter Sabarimala
