Default Forget Modi, Someone Else Is Running India's Show

As India’s politicians bicker, its Supreme Court judges are taking the lead in shaping policy.

In the past six months, Indian courts doubled a tax on commercial vehicles entering Delhi, banned bullfighting and -- most controversially -- struck down a constitutional amendment that would give politicians a role in picking judges. Soon they will decide on the legality of 4G mobile-phone licenses and mining activities in the south.

The speed at which India’s courts are handing down decisions contrasts with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s struggle to push major legislation through parliament, including a national sales tax. The power of judges has also spawned a debate: Proponents view them as an antidote to India’s gridlock and a check on corrupt politicians, while detractors see a threat to democracy and a risk for investors.

Judicial activism is a very sensitive area . In over enthusiasm it should not go beyond boundaries which may be mis- interpreted as trespassing . Policy decisions cannot be taken over by Judiciary . It cannot make law .
Unfortunately what is unearthed as corruptions and scams are just tips of the iceberg and even judiciary at lower levels are under constant attack with the same allegation .

IMHO, Indian Judiciary is like a bird that feeds on termites hidden inside the democracy framework but the beak of the bird is so hard that it destroys the wood-work anyway.

There is no real threat to indian democracy from judicial system,

Real threat is from the corrupt congress and communal bjp ,
