Emotional scenes at SC as court receives a note of gratitude from a 10 year old boyold

New Delhi : The Supreme Court witnessed  kind of emotional moments generally not seen.It was a moment which made  Justice Kurian Joseph also turn emotional .It was that  Justices Kurian Joseph and Mohan Shantanagoudar pronounced judgment in a bitter divorce battle a husband and wife fought with each other after they separated in 2011.Both had filed total of 23 cases against each other. The Bench dissolved the marriage by recording a decree of “divorce by mutual consent”.

Expressing his gratitude 10 year old son of the couple handed over a note to the SC  bench. This brought a smile on the face of Justice Kurian.The court reciprocated the gesture by scanning the boy’s note and making it part of their judgment.Justice Kurian reached out to the child by writing in his judgment that the note is “the rich encomium paid to the court”.

“The little one present in court is exuberantly happy and sought liberty to present a handmade card expressing his joy on the settlement of all the disputes and litigation's between his mother and father,” Justice Kurian said.

In the bitter battle which was fought between husband and wife-the unintended victims were children, the boy and his sister .

The court tries to fathom the anguish the child must have felt over the years, and his joy that the acrimony between his parents is over. The court has made the child’s note a proof of how every court has “a duty to make an endeavour to assist and persuade the parties in arriving at a settlement in a speedy manner to prevent sporadic litigation's”, Justice Kurian said.
