Whichever course it follows, law will take its own timeHow many times have you heard the phrase "Law will take its own course" uttered by politicians and alleged criminals? They used this phrase at random to make us believe how honest they are. Now every litigation has its own process and it takes some time to complete the whole process from filing the case to the final judgement. At times the time taken to resolve a case becomes so long that the litigants turn very old to even move properly. Of course in those cases, their representatives do attend on behalf of them but a few of the cases are really lengthy.
I remember one such case where there was a land dispute between two brothers living in our locality. They went to the court to settle the dispute. On hearing this, one gentleman told one of the brothers that it is good that they went to the court, but ultimately they won't be able to hear the settlement of the dispute in their lifetime and probably their next generation will have to continue the case. Well, the brothers are still fighting it out there on the court premises.
The term course in this phrase means it will follow all the directions/route provided in the law to settle any dispute, but who knows how long this route is! Isn't it better to say that law will take its own time?
P.S. I thank Dr N.V. Srinivasa Rao because the particular term he used in one of his replies reminded me of this incident. He used the term 'law will take its own time' in one of his replies in a thread. I owe the title of this thread to Dr Rao.
