He was an Indian judge and minister who reformed the Indian criminal justice system, stood up for the poor and the underprivileged, especially, and remained a human-rights champion, a crusader for social justice and the environment, and a doyen of civil liberties, throughout life.

For an NGO running for Social Justice and Human Rights; there can’t be any one better then My Lords. Though he is not between us to guide this humanity but his voice shall always be felt for ages and ages. He laid the foundation of Public Interest Litigations in series of cases along with Hon’ble Justice P.N.Bhagwati. As a writer he has over 70 books to his credit. He is a thorough inspiration for us. His life has so many stories that a page is too short to accommodate the same. We desire to establish a chair in future for research on his ideals.
