This first ever unique compilation of legal quotations from Supreme Court Cases (SCC) by Mr. Sumeet Malik was launched amongst the crème-de-la crème of the Indian legal fraternity at the India International Centre on 20th November, 2015.
The event was graced by Justice R.C. Lahoti, Former Chief Justice of India, Justice Dipak Misra, Judge, Supreme Court of India and Mr. Salman Khurshid, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India.
The present work, a compilation of gems of sublime thought and felicitous expression, embodies the aspirations and values of our developing law. These gems are worthy of being cited and deserve to be treasured.
The event began with Mr. Surendra Malik giving a brief description of how the idea for such a unique work took shape, and also the pleasure of creating another unique work of such a long lasting value, " We have immensely enjoyed creating this work, and I am sure wherever it lands people will find it equally very enjoyable."
Justice R.C Lahoti, Former Chief Justice of India, applauded the work and the efforts involved in the creation of "the publication which is unique, innovative and unprecedented in the history of legal literature, atleast in India". He talked about the utility of quotes and of the present work, "It needs a connoisseur, like Sumeet Malik, to identify, pick and compile such quotes as they deserve to be called Quotable Quotes. The utility of such a book is immense... These quotable quotes compiled in the book of the day, may not gain the status of rules of law, but it cannot be denied that these quotes are truisms, they are propositions, they are precepts and undoubtedly a rich food for thought. I am confident that this book will prove to be refreshing and welcome publication for the book lovers, who though in law, carry a craving for peice of literature, wit and wisdom."
Justice Dipak Misra advised the younger generation present to read the quotations, "Whatever I have read in this book, I felt all the quotations really speak... the idea of a judge... My advice to the younger the generation, please read the quotations with a perceived notion that you can get ideas and pyramid the ideas..."
Mr. Salman Khurshid found the book to be fascinating, "There is something about this book that is incredible and... it sort of excites and brings out the best as it were...". He also acknowledged the success of Supreme Court CasesTM, "This is a good moment to acknowledge the remarkable work that SCC has done, SCC has gone well past the Supreme Court reports and become really a byword for India jurisprudence and I think this would be one of the greatest contributions that the publishing industry and particularly EBC has made."
These words by the Supremes will hopefully make millions think. This work will benefit the judges, advocates, researchers, academicians, and others interested in law.
