Retired Hon’ble Chief Justice of India A.N. Ray once said, as evidenced by George H. Gadbois, Jr, “An Indian Chief Justice, like the Lord Chief Justice, in England, should not take up any post-retirement positions.”
Hon’ble Justice T.S. Thakur believes however an Indian Chief Justice is a ‘valuable human resource‘ and that resource should not be ‘wasted‘.
65 is no age for an Indian Supreme Court Judge to retire. Simple. Why think yourself to be any less than the Lord Chief Justice in England?
