  1. The condition is similar to Indian Courts which are supposed to do judgement. Unfortunately, No. of cases keep increasing, judicial staff stay busy taking and enjoying leaves and advocates keep busy in putting new appeals and applications. We are fighting a case from last 27 years in session court. I don’t know when will it get finalized. The irony is out of both party, one will appeal in upper court. It will again take some 30 years or so and the next generation will either get it solved by themselves or again one will appeal in High Court. Who knows how many years it will be heard there? Then Supreme Court will hear for years. By the time it will get finalized, some 3 to 4 generations will die waiting for the judgement.
