Declaration of assets by Supreme Court judges

So, assets and liabilities of judges of Supreme Court of India except Justice H.S.Bedi are now in public domain. There are of course some limitations like value of properties is not given in many cases. Since these gentlemen (surprisingly among the 22 judges , there is no lady at present) must have had a flourishing legal practice before adorning the Bench, we should not be surprised by the extent of their wealth.
Now what do we do with the public disclosure? We are bound to be affected by the "barking dog's syndrome" and be at a loss as to what to do next. Some dogs keep barking at moving vehicles and run after them apparently wanting the vehicle to stop. Once the vehicle comes to a halt, the dogs would not know what to do and would silently walk away.
