    About the competition

    Judiciary is the temple of justice. While the courts deliver numerous significant judgments every day which pose a grave concern to the country, the massive backlog of cases, random conversations struck with people at courts, and "tareekhpetareekh" has become a subject of exasperation and hilarity at the same time.

    Many of us have amusing incidents at court to recount. It may be as a party, as an intern, as an advocate, or even as a judge. To bring some mirth in these testing times, we invite you all to share your original experience or story with us and get a chance to win exciting prizes. These stories can be about you or something you have witnessed.
