Raise your voice fearlessly for change - CGI

He asked the young lawyers to fearlessly raise their voice for change to achieve the goal of justice. The CGI said that it is easy to find a million excuses to maintain the status quo as the law is lax by its very nature, but when you are at the crossroads, do not hesitate to choose the path less travelled.

'The capacity of the constitution is really informative'

The CJI said that the success of our Constitution is generally seen from two opposite ends of the spectrum. Some people talk about our constitution in completely laudatory terms while others are indifferent towards the success of our constitution. The Chief Justice said that the Constitution's capacity as a government document is actually informational.

Speaking about the hardships faced by Babasaheb Ambedkar, Chief Justice Chandrachud said that the people of India are indebted to him for many of the constitutional rights and remedies that are given to us today. The CJI said that saying or doing nothing is probably the safer less risky option, but choosing the more difficult latter option and trying to reconstruct justice with the law and society is more courageous.
