THE HIGHER JUDICIARY IS HIGHLY POLLUTED , BEING WITHOUT ANY CONTROL. THE COUNTRY HAS WITNESSED THE INFAMOUS "SINGHVI EPISODE" , AND KNOWN THE MODUS OPERANDII TO APPOINTMENT OF JUDGES IN THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURTS. AFTER ALL JUDGES ARE FORMER ADVOCATES WHO COMMENCES PAYING BRIBES/BLACK FROM STAMP VENDORS TO COURT REGISTRARS, IF NOT TO JUDGES. THESE ADVOCATES GRADUATE TO HC/SC JUDGES VIA ABOVE CHANNEL. I UNDERSTAND THERE IS HARDLY ANY ADVOCATE , HOWSOEVER HE MAY BE FAMOUS OR HIGH,IN INDIA WHO DOES NOT PAY BRIBES TO COURT REGISTRARS.BECAUSE WHO DOES SELECT THIS PATH CAN'T SURVIVE IN THE HIGHLY POLLUTED AND CORRUPTED ENVIRONMENT.
