Description
In his forthright autobiography, Justice Khanna, lays bare the influences that shaped his life and made him the great man that he is. The individual faiths and principles versus the circumstantial forces or situations' pulls and pressings, is the theme of the story of Justice Khanna's life that is depicted in the book. An outstanding judge and jurist, an undaunted man of conviction and independent views, Justice Khanna's life is one for every Indian to emulate today, and his autobiography for every Indian to read. The book is a witness to many epoch making judgments he rendered during his 25 silvery years of judicial career, which became milestones. The events from the author's life more particularly the Supreme Court Habeas Corpus Case and resignation from the court and Chairmanship of Law Commission reveals him as a man who is deeply thoughtful, gentle and firm of purpose, of strong moral principles without being flamboyant or even mildly demonstrative. He will be always remembered in the annals of Indian Judiciary as one of the most outstanding and courageous judge India has ever seen. The book, full of picturesque scenes of social reality and judicial attitudes, is a valuable source material for the future historians of India and a must read for every one who loves justice and individual liberty to strengthen one's faith.
