New Delhi : A Class 5 student from Kerala has written to the Chief Justice of India, Justice NV Ramana, saying she is happy that the Supreme Court has intervened effectively in the sufferings and death of ordinary people in the fight against Covid-19.
The 10-year-old Lidwina Joseph from Kerala’s Thrissur district, wrote in the letter, “I am happy and feel proud your honourable court has moved orders for supply of oxygen and saved many lives. I understood your honourable court has initiated effective steps in bringing down Covid-19 infection and death rate in our country, especially in Delhi. I thank your honour for this. Now I feel very proud and happy.”
The letter was accompanied by a colourful illustration showing a bespectacled judge using his gavel to deliver a blow on the head of coronavirus. Joseph also drew a portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, which was hung on the wall behind the judge.
Chief Justice Ramana wrote, “I am sure you will grow up into an alert, informed and responsible citizen who will contribute immensely towards nation-building.” He also sent her a signed copy of the Indian Constitution.
