Observing that life is short and has more meaning than pursuing cases in court, the Delhi High Court on Monday encouraged parties to a matrimonial dispute to amicably settle the matter.

Justice Najmi Waziri was hearing a contempt case filed by the petitioner, Pearl Arora, against her husband, Rohit Arora.

It was alleged that respondent has not paid any monies since almost a decade and is in arrear of over Rs.31 lakhs towards maintenance of the petitioner and their child, who is in custody of the petitioner.

The Respondent husband on the other hand claimed to have paid approximately Rs.24,63,000/-. However, Rs. 7.50 lacs was admitted to be outstanding.

He stated to be going through some financial difficulty and sought permission to pay an amount of Rs.2 lacs in the interregnum. It was further submitted that he will take a separate medical policy for the mother and will maintain the same for duration of subsistence of marriage.

Today, the Bench was informed that the amount remains outstanding till date. It was also brought to the Court's attention that the Petitioner is suffering from a life-threatening ailment.

In view of the above circumstances, Justice Waziri orally observed,

"Life is too short...it has more meaning than pursuing cases in court."

Further, noting that as many as 18 court cases are pending between the parties, the Judge encouraged the parties to communicate and settle the matter amicably. "One should not waste time in frivolous cases," the Bench added.

It directed the respective counsels to seek instructions from the parties so that effective orders may be passed during the course of the day.  

Advocate Vandana Anand appeared for the Petitioner.
