The court building has sunk in the sea of motor bikes and cars, the access to the court is marred by the big red paan-spots, and throws a pity picture of desperate clients and struggling lawyers. You would see small groups of lawyers sitting and chatting in front of small dhabas. The disparity in the profession is writ large, a typical Indian-ness, revealing a thriving miniscule minority and suffering majority.
Most of the difficulties cited above can be remedied by spending a few Lakhs of Rupees for improvements and by appointing more cleaning staff. I was told that the Bar Association has taken few effective steps in setting up libraries, ladies’ bar rooms etc. Association has been financially aided by few senior lawyers in renovating the library and canteen. A lot more need to be done to make the space humane and professional for the six to seven thousand lawyers and for a corresponding corresponding number of litigants who frequent the court every day. There are around 300 lady lawyers who visit the court every day, and for them there is hardly any facilities, be it wash rooms, sitting area or study space.
Within the congested spaces, I was informed, winter months are relatively tolerable. But in scorching summer, the court corridors virtually become fuming concentration camps. When I inquired about the requirement of gowns in summer, my lawyer friend
“Gown is a must, though it has become grey over years or has turned white with sweat spots. Rules are indeed Rules, all for better administration of justice!”
