Kabir underscored the role played by alternative forums in resolving legal tangles amid a massive number of litigations pending in various courts.
"Out of court settlements take considerable load off our over-worked courts. Various tribunals and mediation centres have come into being for the purpose and they are playing a very significant role.
"I can see a number of young lawyers and law students among the audience. For them I would like to invoke the Bar Council rules, which describe in detail, the manner in which advocates are supposed to conduct themselves.
"Upon entering the profession, lawyers must keep in mind that it is their duty to make people aware of their legal rights," the CJI added.
The Chief Justice of India asserted that "people from all religions must come together for nation-building".
In this respect, Pandit Malaviya led by example as he remained a staunch Hindu without becoming a bigot.
He became an epitome of what Swami Vivekananda - one of his eminent contemporaries - taught the world.
Among others who spoke on the occasion included senior Supreme Court judge Justice B S Chauhan and Chief Justice of the Allahabad High Court Shiva Kirti Singh.
