The book covers a number of articles by the author. The Second Edition contains three new biographical sketches - Justice J.S. Verma, Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer, and Shanti Bhushan. The Second Edition contains several new articles. Two articles- “A Trojan Horse at the Judiciary’s Door” and “Upholding Judicial Independence” relate to the tension between the Executive & the Judiciary and analyses the provisions of the Constitutional Amendment and the Judicial Appointments Commission Bill (JAC Bill) sponsored in the Rajya Sabha by the former UPA Government. The article on CBI advocates an independent constitutional status for the CBI if it is to be free from political interference. The article on death penalty raises the question whether a death penalty executed against a terrorist is counterproductive. “Criminal defamation” abolished in many countries, requires India to follow in their footsteps. “Gay Rights are Human Rights” is critical of the Supreme Court judgment which reversed an internationally acclaimed judgment of the Delhi High Court decriminalising Section 377 IPC in case of adult consensual sex in private. The Convocation Address builds upon anecdotal events containing lessons for young lawyers. In “Restrict Foreign Access to the Bar”, it is argued, that it requires a strict court monitored structure.
