There’s a lot that needs to change about our country, and perhaps among the issues at the top of the list is our judicial system. For too long now, people have spent years making trips to courts, or to their lawyers offices, seeking justice.
Recently, Maheshwar Peri, a Delhi resident saw an elderly couple doing the rounds of a high court, all the while, dragging on the ground a large pile of files from their pending case. The man then took to Facebook to write about the painful sight that he witnessed.
This is the text of his post.

“Heart wrenching. I am unable to erase this from my head. This is the Price people pay for an insensitive and lax justice delivery system. Two years back, We saw this old couple doing the rounds at a high court, with files and papers of many years. The weight of the files represents the years they spent seeking justice. Now, it is too heavy and they tag them along on a wooden trolley. They hold each other’s hands tight as they fight another battle, another date, another adjournment, year after year.
My Lordships, Take my life, but please deliver them justice when both are alive! Please!

Peri’s painful post resonated with many others on Facebook who shared his words widely and debated further about many like the couple, who continue to await justice.
