Fali S. Nariman and Rajeev Dhavan on Indian Supreme Court

Writing for an anthology to celebrate the 50 years of Indian Supreme Court, these two fine legal minds described the attitude of the Supreme Court judges as typical of the decision-making habits of typical middle-class metropolitan Indians:

“technically unpredictable, not uninfluenced by imitative  cosmopolitan habits, conditioned by native instinct to a depth not yet predictable by the psychologist or documented even by a novelist, the dramatist or the fiction-writer, and suffering from an over-sensitive opinion of their lonely and unparalleled position.”

(Supreme But Not Infallible: Essays in Honour of The Supreme Court of India, Oxford University Press, 2000)
