One really needs to ask why this happens?
Why all this post-retirement hue and cry?
Why people become so fond of dirty linen?
Especially when the launderer is our ex-CJI …?
With parliamentarian’s aura pugnacious
Aiming blows at ex-brethren’s solar plexus
Not only has he looked askance at ‘activism’
But exposed an unholy lawyer-judge nexus!
So many are frothing at his disclosures
And are lashing out with unprintable things
But does all this not lead one to suspect
That there may be truth in his barbs & stings?
If judges have been favouring select lawyers
With a view to get arbitrations after they retire
It exposes a deep dishonesty in their mindset
What confidence in young lawyers can it inspire?
All the hidden muck has come out in the open
Because of an ex- CJI’s Rajya Sabha nomination
Instead of finger-pointing at the persons involved
Should we not lament the judiciary of our Nation?
And if one assumes these allegations are false
To scandalise the judiciary a pathetic attempt
Why haven’t the watchdogs of our Constitution
Hauled up the rumour-mongerer for Contempt?
