Humour in Court
One of the leading lights of the Madras High Court T. R. Ramachandra Iyer was arguing an appeal relating to Hindu Law of Succession before a British judge who had come to India only recently and was not yet initiated into the intricacies of Hindu Law. He asked TRR what was the share of a son-in-law in the property according to Hindu Law.

TRR replied "My Lord,, whatever he can lay his hands on, Your Lordship, whatever can lay his hands on!" The British judge and everyone present in court roared with laughter.

In the bygone decades wit and humour were part of court- hearings which enlivened the serious atmosphere. Sadly for many reasons such ambience has vanished today...
