HA­JIPUR: “So­lu­tion to prob­lems and dis­putes through me­di­a­tion is deep rooted in In­dia so­cial cul­ture. There is now the need to take the me­di­a­tion process from con­fer­ence rooms to vil­lage chau­pals,”said jus­tice of Patna high court HK Sri­vas­tava, on Satur­day here at an aware­ness pro­gram or­ga­nized by the dis­trict le­gal ser­vices author­ity. Sri­vas­tava is in­spect­ing judge of Ha­jipur civil court also.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Sri­vas­tava stressed, that me­di­a­tion should be to such an ex­tent that so­lu­tions should be ar­rived be­tween lit­i­gants. That so­lu­tion should come out mu­tu­ally and nat­u­rally for ever last­ing har­mony in re­la­tion­ship.

“I ad­vice the ju­di­cial fra­ter­nity as well as lawyers and me­di­a­tors to take the le­gal me­di­a­tion process to vil­lage chau­pals where hun­dreds of vil­lagers as­sem­ble and dis­cuss community is­sues’ he said, adding, “Aware­ness on the ben­e­fits of le­gal me­di­a­tion must be known to all and sundry”.

“This is a mu­tual process and me­di­a­tors should try to strike a chord in the hearts of lit­i­gants to reach an ami­ca­ble and mu­tual so­lu­tion and com­pro­mise”, he added. Be­fore him, DK Sharma, dis­trict and ses­sion judge (DJ) of Vaishali, said the process to sort out dis­putes through proper me­di­a­tion has yielded good re­sults in Vaishali.
