“You will die but the words you speak or spoke, will live forever.”
Eastern Book Company, in an event to be attended by esteemed and august gathering in the National Capital, will tomorrow release the second edition of its much acclaimed book — Thus Spake Their Lordships!
The event will be presided over by the Chief Guest, Hon’ble the Chief Justice, Justice Dipak Misra along with the Guests of Honour Justice A.K. Sikri and Mr K.K. Venugopal, Attorney General for India.
The author, Sumeet Malik, in sequel to the first edition, has collected the pearls from landmark judgments covering almost every issue ranging from women’s rights to privacy; from education to passive euthanasia; etc. and added them to the already crafted beautiful necklace.
The author has added to the already created extensive word index by which the quotes that contain a particular word can be found. The Word Index also lists Articles of the Constitution and Sections of the Acts and therefore can be really helpful in case the reader wishes to look for an excerpt with respect to a particular provision.
Quotations from judgments of newly appointed Judges to the Supreme Court have been incorporated and the Judge Index updated by which readers can refer to the quotes of their idol Judges.
We hope that in creating this work, we are able to make the law a little less dreary and those engaged in the study of the law are made to think, reflect and be inspired by these little gems.
