Pro­fes­sion­al­ism pre­vailed in the ju­di­ciary and many prom­i­nent fig­ures stood firmly to douse the fire that had erupted on Fri­day, in a bid to safe­guard the coun­try’s pre­mium in­sti­tu­tion. The at­tor­ney gen­eral played a ma­jor role in bring­ing nor­malcy. Four se­nior judges of the apex court speak­ing out against the Chief Jus­tice of In­dia, was akin to “law un­der trial”. Lipp­mann’s law says: “Where all think alike, no one thinks very much”. We are bound to grow pompous and self­cen­tred, and it is good to have the veil of our con­ceit torn oc­ca­sion­ally, which the four judges did.
