Though I practise in Supreme Court, I avoid to file any Public Interest Litigation on my own whims and wishes?
Today, a LinkedIn freind asked me to file a Public Interest Litigation on a subject I wrote in my blog. This prompted me to write this short note.
I replied to her as under;
“I believe in Bhagwad Gita’s stanza which says, “He who does not start anything on his own is dear to me”…..
So I do not start any battles on my own.
Unless I am retained and asked by someone to file a PIL, I avoid acting on my own wishes even if the subject may be of interest to me.
This principle makes me detached about whether I fail or win in the battle. It prevents me from being disappointed or elated with hopes of publicity and TV interviews.
I prefer to be instrument in the hands of God and His Wishes expressed through others.
I believe that only those who have some kind of mandate or responsibility to act, should file PIL.
I think this is what I truly believe.
