Judiciary's reputation at stake

Among various institutions in India, judiciary has been by far the least tarnished. Even after discounting the opacity that surrounds the happenings in various courts, the judicial system has not yet become a festering disgrace.

But alas! things are fast achanging. An intern has reported sexual harassment by a recently retired judge of the Supreme Court. One hopes this will be honestly investigated and the nation taken into confidence. But so far, the preliminary moves are not promising.
