Media’s ostrich-like approach and the studied silence of the colluding political class , is all very intriguing. Even the Judiciary did not provide a solution matching the gravity of situation. Giving controversy a quiet burial is the last thing that one would expect from Supreme court, the champion of transparency. 

One wonders whether NJAC, since quashed by the Hon’ble Supreme court, would have acted differently. Madras HC Judge’s misdemeanour was serious. Sample a few misconducts. Hurling abuses at CJ Madras HC , staying  his own transfer orders to Kolkatta issued by SC, issuing notice to CJI, ordering Madras Police Commissioner to file FIR invoking SC/ST Act alleging caste bias.

As per media reports,the Judge has since joined the Calcutta HC. All the same,the unsavoury experience has shaken   people’s faith in Judiciary. The Judge, no doubt, has tried to wriggle out of controversy citing causes like mental depression, frustration, work pressure etc.What is the guarantee that the misbehavior is not repeated? But, one may ask whether a person with such a mercurial temperament, is fit to hold the high office of a Judge in a High court? Will a civil servant meet the same fate under the principle of Equality before the Law
