This week I got an opportunity to visit the legendary Allahabad High Court in connection with a case. The building from the outside stands majestic, neatly cured lawns, giant pillars, well representing the Victorian architecture.A closer look will tell you the frozen moments of time, filth and ugly shades, a reflection of present day judiciary.

I spoke to many lawyers; all have good words about Justice Chandrachud. They said that he had brought many add-ons to the system – e courts, ladies’ bar rooms, a proper filing system, did away with illegal proxy affidavits and many more in the High Court and subordinate courts. All this description of improvements, made me wonder what the state of affairs would have been before his period.

Mr. Vivek Mishra, a former member of the bar association and Adv. Abhishek  who was former reporter with Umar Ujala, took me to every nook and corner of the grand building. They were desperate at the state of affairs; they expressed that a master plan for holistic development with better infrastructure for courts, litigants and lawyers, particularly lady lawyers can alone save the system now. I was deeply moved by their concern for improving the justice delivery system.
