On a lighter note
Even if not done, at least it can be made to appear that justice has been done. Interacting with the lower court judges of Punjab and Haryana, a Supreme Court judge, on a lighter note, "advised" the Judges to give the lawyers and clients a patient hearing. The Supreme Court judge suggested that even if the judges cannot hear, they can pretend to be hearing the arguments of the case. By this, the Apex Court Judge opined, lawyers and clients feel contented that they have been heard. The "advisory" was given during the concluding day of a conference on "Administration of justice: issues and challenges".
The young generation, it seems, have forgotten the sacrifices made by Guru Tegh Bahadur. An independent research carried out by Panditrao Dharennavar, assistant professor at the PG Government College has revealed certain disconcerting results. The research was carried out on youth hailing from Chandigarh and Mohali. The research has revealed that only 11 per cent of the interviewed people are aware of the name of the person who carried the head of the martyr from Delhi to Sri Ananandpur Saheb.
Only 9 per cent of people are aware of the name of the person who burnt his house in order to cremate Guru's body. Out of 500 respondents only 10 per cent of people know the fact that Guru Tegh Bahadur was ninth Guru of Sikhism.
Only 11 per cent of the people polled by him knew Guru Tegh Bahadur meditated for over two decades. Although 60 per cent people are aware that Guru Tegh Bahadur sacrified his life of humanity, only 18 per cent of people are aware the Guru was the son of Guru Hargobind. Gurudwara Rakab Ganj, Delhi which was in the news recently where two groups clashed, was the same place where the Guru's body was burnt by Lakhi Shahi Vanjara but now it is known as Rakab Ganj and only 18 per cent of people are aware of its history.
