‘What will the judiciary do if the executive neglects citizens?’ Watch Soli Sorabjee at his sharpest

Very few people have seen the Indian judiciary as closely or as long as the former Attorney General has.

What does the much revered Soli Sorabjee, one of India’s finest legal eagles, have to say about the present state of judicial practices? At 87, he has practised during the tenures of over 30 Chief Justices of India, and has a wide-angle view of the system.

The key question: is the judiciary more than its meant to? As Sorabjee says in an interview (video above), “Today’s judiciary is a mixed picture. No doubt judicial overreach exists, but what will the judiciary do if the executive neglects the citizens?”

“The judiciary needs protection from itself,” noted Sorabjee, stressing on the need for judges to take their colleagues into confidence for resolution of issues. He also had some advice for the Chief Justice of India and for lawyers, while touching upon the controversies concerning Justice Chelameswar and the BCCI.

Sorabjee is still certain of the people’s faith in the system. “All said and done, even the common citizen is confident in the judiciary,” he said.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
