And so onon otherlarger socio-constitutional issues In Indiajudges are not appointed for their political or ideological leanings That was never particularly the case and in fact it was one of the arguments Indira Gandhi and her Emergency apologists had used to start interfering in judicial appointments: that our judges were much too old-fashioned and conservative (and thank godsome of them werebecause they cast our basic freedoms and the sanctity of the basic structure of the Constitution in stoneand emerged as some of the greatestwisest and certainly the bravest judges of the modern worldnot just India) There were threats of bringing in a committed judiciarymore in tune with the socialist ideal that was used as a brutally cynical excuse for the Emergency This was the response of an all-powerfuldictatorial state still smarting from a 7-6 defeat in the Kesavananda Bharati caseand the setting aside of Mrs Gandhis election by the Allahabad high court The packing of the Supreme Court with judges more in tune with the establishments then socialist ideology was launched in earnest by the Emergency cabal Butfortunatelyit was cut short by Mrs Gandhis defeat in the 1977 election The cleaning-up of the wreckage of the higher judicial institutions and qualitative reconstruction was launched by the Janata government under the care of who else but Shanti Bhushanthe law minister in Morarji Desais cabinet It was the only time that systematic effort was made to give the higher judiciary a pre-determined ideological slantand fortunately for our generation and our childrensthe voters cut it short Subsequent and reformist changes in the procedure of a judges appointmentushered in by the Supreme Court itselffurther ensured that the political class would not be able to either sabotage or pack the higher judiciary with their own Nobody tried to mess with this even during the six years of the NDA Indian senior judgesthereforehave evolved as formidable professional jurists They have built a name over the decades for their clinical interpretation of the law and the Constitution In the processthe institution of the Supreme Court has emerged as the strongest pillar of our democracy and has built a real (and well-deserved) reputation around the world Its ideologyif anythinghas been unshakeable constitutionalism and successive generations of judges have established a liberaldemocratic and large-hearted tradition Over nearly three-and-a-half decades from the Emergencythe higher judiciary has evolved in harmony with the larger democratic world: towards social liberalism and economic reform Our Supreme Courts record over the recent years underlines this wonderful phenomenon On economicssociety and politicsthe bench has stayed way ahead of the executive and the political classeven under reformist prime ministers On economicsthe courts viewsranging from denying strikes as employees fundamental right to strengthening rights to private propertyrulings on contract labour have all been reformist and modern As is the case with the leadership it took on environmental issues when they were not so fashionable and when Greenpeace wasnt spending tens of crores in India The Supreme Court brought in CNGset emission standards for vehiclesprotected the Taj Mahalset new norms for organ transplants and so on and the rest of the judiciary picked up the thread So we got that landmarkliberal judgment from the Delhi high court decriminalising consensual homosexuality In the same heady period the Supreme Court reinforced the independence of the Election Commissionstrengthened the CVCraised the bar on Article 356thereby strengthening the federal structureplayed a stellar role in ensuring investigations into the Gujarat killingsstrengthened laws on sexual harassment in workplace and so on In factover these three decades you can see almost no Supreme Court order that does not pass the test of liberalreformist large-heartednessand brilliantly so That is why some of the recent judgments and orders in fact over the past week or so are so significant You can agree or disagree with the orderbut the language used This paper had a full page of highlighted excerpts on Thursday morning Not only is the language out of tune with the timesit is also as if the apex court had made a dramatic ideological shiftor almost as if a new president in America had just made a bunch of his own appointments Large parts of these judgments are just lectures on political economy that makes you ask a legitimate question: what is the job of the judgesto interpret lawor to criticise/ make/ change economic policy Surelyjudgeslike you and Iare entitled to their ownstrong views on these issues But if you want to make policythe message to you has to be the same as to our civil society: go to the people with these ideasget voteschange policiesand be accountable for the consequencesgood or bad Orokaylet us stop complaining about the language in these never-ending lectures on the post-reform neoliberal economy having the intellectual depth of a JNU postgrad Pick an issue with the larger argumentthat all this corruptionstate (and Maoist) brutalityblack moneymisuse of land acquisition lawsetc are a consequence of economic reform Did we generate less black money (as a percentage of our economy) when tax rates were at 97 per cent in the heyday of Emergency socialismor now Reformtransparentnon-discretionary regulation and modern laws are not the cause of corruptionbut the best antidote against it And the scams we have seenincluding 2Ghave taken place not because of too muchbut too little reform Because too much discretion was still left in the system It is these areas of discretion that the apex court can help eliminate even as it oversees the investigation and prosecution in these scams Ushering in an entirely new political economy or new socialist revolution may be too much of an ask even for our most venerably redoubtable Supreme Court And you can add with the greatest humilitythis is not its briefeither Our Singapore fantasy June 252011 The increasing upper crust impatience with our messy democracy and the rising
