The Judiciary I Served is an account of an eminent jurist s long and distinguished career in law from his early days as a barrister to his retirement from the Supreme Court of India. An absorbing aspect of this book is the detail of how repeated challenges, minor and major were thrown down at both state and central level, and how upright judges needed to struggle against such pressures in order to uphold the proper functioning of the law.
