There are three judges who have covered themselves with glory in the recent controversy over disclosure of assets by judges. They are K.Kannan of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, D.V.Shylendra Kumar of the Karnataka High Court and K.Chandru of the Madras High Court. It is reported that all three are persons of impeccable integrity and are around 55 years of age which means they will continue to serve on the Bench for some more years and hopefully may get elevated to the Supreme Court also. Judges like these form an oasis in the venal justice system. One hopes that age and the overwhelming system will not tame them into submission to corrosive political influences.
