Cyrus.. thank you for giving such an excellent platform to explain Justice..

Yes the statement is very true.. Justice is NOT the Court Order.. Justice is NOT PUNISHMENT.. Justice mean Just Life.. Criminal Justice System start from Police Station to Jail..in which there are numerous hick-ups such as genunity of the Complaint..Investigation..Political Pressure.. Media Interference.. Excellent Professional Skills of Lawyers..Court Room Proceedings, Judgement and Imprisonment..

The harassment a Accused get during the process in the various way till the final Judgement is the Worst than Imprisonment.. In inprisonment the Accused knows about his Punishment and his furtue but prior to that the Uncertinity in the CourtRoom is more Punishable and Killing..

General Public feel that the Court and Judiciary is a time Killing.. but people with desputes realise that it is proper to behave than to get into despute and land to the Judiciary.. the Harasment by the Lawyers check the people to b ...more

Those entrusted with the task to mete out justice must maintain their fairness in determining other peoples right for assigning them punishment and reward. Justice would come out in the end only if those entrusted try to maintain their own fairness while the court proceedings are in progress. If they don't then the they will ultimately deny justice.

Justice is different from law. What comes out of the court room is in accordance with a judge's interpretation of law and may or may not be just. The judge has to rely on the material placed before him / her and the skill of the lawyers etc. The same case is judged differently when it goes to a higher court or a larger bench.

Well.. I'm afraid what comes out of the courtroom is a judgment or an adjudication. Yes.. Cyrus in certain ways, the judgment may not have much to do with what had gone in the court room. There is nothing called "Absolute Truth". Of course many like me for saying all these negative things..but let me repeat what I have said in this forum and been saying it for some years... There is only the "Interpretation of Truth" Similarly, Whatever convinces the judges, that becomes the judgment and to that effect becomes an opinion. "Satyam eva Jayatey"? Sorry.. it is "yata jayatey tat satyam". Whatever that wins is truth. There had been cases where several eminent judges had castigated the prosecuting authorities for not handling the case well and noted that as a reason for acquitting or awarding a cursory punishment to the accused. And then you should also consider these two maxims held sacrosanct - One is "A million culprit may escape punishment and not one innocent should be convicted" Second ...more

And whatever goes on in the courtroom is what the advocates tell their clients to tell the court, which is at times far from reality.

What is justice? justice is delivered. how can one deliver justice. what is the ingredient? the ingredients are satya and dharma. while truth or satya is very very speicific dharma is sookhma i.e interpretation is very very difficult. this is because the viel /line which appears to separate dharma/adharma is very thin. take for example vibhishana's charecter in the ramayana. to this there are many of us the so called followers of sanathana dharma who interpret his defecting to sri rama's camp as adharmic. what many fail to understand is that vibhishina defected to the place where there was dharmic reason to fight the war and sri rama was leading such a camp. similarly vaali vadha. if we go through the details in full with perfect knowledge in the yuga/desa/kaala dharma then we find that what sri rama did was perfectly dharmic. so justice is delivered as per its ingredients, like a computer. garbage in garbage out. i.e justice of an act would be different in a sri rama's court from tha ...more

I suppose what comes out of a courtroom is determined by what goes on in the courtroom. Justice can be delivered only with the collective effort of many-the witnesses, the lawyers, the investigators, the judge etc. If the witnesses do not speak truth in courtroom or do not appear, the invetigators do not investigate properly, the lawyer does not argue well, then naturally justice will be denied. Judges can not deliver judgement on the basis of their personal beliefs. (except when the case is of interpretetion of something written). Thus although justice is to be delivered in the courtroom, the decision depends entirely what happens in the courtromm and before.
