In a sequel to a series of letters the Chief Justice has been penning since the lockdown, another one titled ‘Shifting horizons’ has come forth wherein he likens the services of doctors and nurses as standing foremost in our memories as martyrs. Noting that each one of us has not yielded to the continued sufferings and a brave front has helped us sustain our fortitude, he said, “Our renewed capacities are still wanted to continue our endeavours to meet an uphill future.
Nature has again reminded us that our horizon is never quite at our elbows, but providence acknowledges human efforts as it is believed that God helps them those who help themselves.” However, on offering a word of caution that the raw hand of nature has warned us timely to discipline ourselves and rewind our lives that had gone astray, the Chief Justice said “Our primitive instincts to survive have been rekindled with a moral lesson to renew our respects towards nature.” This, he said, could be achieved by infusing work culture with the age-old principle of simple living and high thinking.
“Time is not lost, even though not usefully spent. We have to start afresh with the best at hand. Now is the time to begin but with more purity of heart and mind,” the Chief Justice added. He also observed that this is the time to display generosity, benevolence and charity within one’s limits while concluding that virtue lies in struggle not in achievements.
