As We are democracy this type of addressing should as early as possible be removed. Judges should ban themselves this type of words. No man is considered as lord or lordship..

No doubt, me or your lordship is a colonial relic and nothing wrong in omitting them while addressing a judge.However,I feel a judge should always be addressed in a courteous your honour is most appropriate.

If the law can be changed/amended as per the requirements of present circumstances, why not this old system of addressing the judges be changed, also it reminds of the olden days slavery system, hence the change is an appreciable move.

Even the kind of elaborate secretariat staff, colonial style court staff who speaks out that the judge is arriving - in High Courts, Insignia on official cars, imported cars usage, red beacon, palatial VVIP bungalows , no audio video recordings, no attendance system - biometric, bias against litigants in person, post retirement benefits, commissions, arbitration panels etc all speaks volumes for much needed judicial reforms !!
