"A society not vigilant will lose it's liberty."Justice Chalameswar of Supreme Court of India said: " A society not vigilant will lose liberty." How true his words are? These words were said by him while speaking at Andhra Chamber of Commerce. The topic of the event was 'Role of the Civil Society in a Democracy'. Justice Chalameswar was one of the Judges who went public along with three others recently on the selective allotment of cases in the Supreme Court. These words may look sour at the moment but they are likely to come true in the very near future.
It is the duty of every citizen to safeguard the constitutionally provided rights. The Legislative, Executive, and the Judiciary are found to be faltering in discharging their duties to the citizens. The society as a whole should be constantly vigilant about the performance of the above-mentioned pillars of the democracy. They should be assessed and questioned on their shortcomings. The performance of these three requires continuous watch and debate in the public forums. Hope the public realise their duty to the society for the liberty and welfare of the future generations.
