@airnewss
Chief Justice of India Justice Dipak Misra retires today. Addressing his farewell function in New Delhi yesterday, Justice  Dipak Misra said Indian judiciary has been strongest judiciary in the world having the capability to handle the mind-boggling number of cases. 


He said it is the most robust institution in the world.  Justice Misra said the independence of justice will stand erect as there is collegiality among the brother and sister judges of the Supreme Court. 


He said any kind of craftsmanship can not impact the independence of the judiciary. Justice Misra also said he judged people not by their history, but by their activities and perspectives. 


He added that the SC Bar Association connects a judge with ground reality and acts as a strong bridge.  The outgoing CJI said, the young members of the Bar enlighten our vision and he is of the view that while the experience of the Bar is to be respected, the wisdom of youth also needs to be appreciated. 

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Justice of India designate Justice Ranjan Gogoi described Justice Dipak Misra as a remarkable judge. He said, Justice Misra's greatest contribution has been to civil liberties and he has spoken against social evils like mob lynching and honour killing. 



He said, what people should wear, eat and believe are issues, which divide them.  It is the Constitution that unites people.
