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.
