Justice Kannan's blog

It is unfortunate that Justice K.Kannan of the Punjab and Haryana High Court has decided to withdraw from blogosphere ( atleast for the present. He was championing transparency in an otherwise opaque legal system. He had taken up a hazardous job and had to walk on thin rope lest he became too judgemental. His blog became immensely popular among concerned citizenry after he openly espoused a sensible stand on disclosure of assets by judges. He explained the nitty-gritty of even convoluted judgements in a reader-friendly manner.

He has indicated that his decision was hastened by uncharitable comments made by some. His withdrawal is a loss to blog-readers.

Added on July 12, 2016: It is encouraging to know that Justice Kannan who recently retired has decided to resume blogging.
