Courts, the temples of justice, have turned into a quagmire which the citizens consciously avoid as far as possible. They prefer to make deals with the criminals and lawbreakers instead of approaching the courts for justice. They know that justice will be denied to them in courts which have turned into dens of corruption, delays, suffocating environments, manipulative lawyers and abusive judges. What a citizen gets after a decade long battle is not justice but a judgment, huge legal expenses, humiliation, and a feeling of having been cheated, insulted and short-changed.
For a well-functioning justice delivery system which could potentially rid India of 90% of its ills including corruption, we must replace British era laws and procedures with a modern judicial system which can deliver effective justice within 6 months in every case.
