And faith in lawyers and our system will be bigger when nation see Prasahnt Bhusan and several other senior lawyers with him are running from pillar to post and the whole SC and CJI and justices respond to the hear a plea in favour of a convict. It is great high for this nation and we are setting new barometer for our nation that at all cost we need to fight for justice and rights of an individual even if it is just a relief as small as 14 days differ or 7 days differ. No stone need to be un turned till the logical and last act in the books of law is not exhusted to demand justice.
