Law without a social mission is no law. This is the theme of this book written by one of India's most eminent jurists. Many facets of this theme, viewed from national and international angles, and focussing on the panorama of Life, Law and Justice, are covered here. Reformation of the criminal through the judicial process, social change through law, access to legal remedies for the downtrodden, revision of the Hindu and Muslim personal law are the issues raised and discussed in a largely Indian context. This book should stimulate the legal community in India to a greater awareness of their appointed task—their tryst with destiny as it were.
