Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer has been “by almost universal consent acclaimed as Chief Justice of the people’s court of India,” senior lawyer of the Supreme Court Fali S. Nariman has said.
Releasing a book, Centenary Miscellany at Law, authored by Mr. Iyer, here on Sunday, he said: ‘‘Mr. Iyer’s views have always been rational and fearless, though expressed from Kochi. His voice has been heard and revered throughout the country. If innovative judgments are permitted to be patented, Mr. Iyer would be the judge holding the largest number of patents,” Mr. Nariman said.
Mr. Nariman urged lawyers and friends of Mr. Iyer to write to the Chief Justice of India and other judges of the Supreme Court to have his portrait unveiled in one of the court rooms of the Supreme Court. In her presidential address, Manjula Chellur, Chief Justice of Kerala High Court, pointed out that the personality of Mr. Iyer reflected in his judgments. Mr. Iyer also spoke.
