How can one not appreciate and applaud?
How can anyone harbour a qualm or grudge?
When a momentous scholarly judgment happens
To read like the doctoral thesis of some judge?
A long judgment in a short and simple matter
Is no longer considered an unsolvable mystery
Brilliant judges are always writing for posterity
So they have to cover a lot of politics & history!
It may end up reading like a classroom lecture
But you must commend its philosophic diversity
Dissertations of such in-depth forensic analysis
Are usually found only at some foreign University!
The liberty of celebrities, very important persons
Should matter a lot to all organs of the Republic.
A judgment, however, is not for personal triumph
It’s made reportable for consumption of the public!
Great judges don’t just analyse the matter at hand
They are ever conscious of it’s wider ramification
The reputation of parties and counsel is insignificant
For all painstaking judges of our self-reliant Nation!
Observe how one comprehensive pronouncement
Is split into multifarious issues,aspects & particles
And keeps journalists of Online law portals busy
Milking that one judgment for several new articles!
