And the importance of separation of powers in a democracy.

When asked about the pressure on the judiciary, CJI Chandrachud said, “In my 23 years as a judge of the high court, as a CJI of the high court, and judge of the Supreme Court, no one has told me to decide a case in a particular way.

We are so clear in the principles we follow. I would not even speak to a colleague presiding over a case and ask them what is going on in that particular case. There are some lines we draw for ourselves.”Said the CJI who is the highest serving judge.
