On Tuesday, Justice MR Midha on his retirement said “This very system has lifted me.” He delivered his farewell speech in an e-farewell organised by the Delhi High Court Bar Association (DHCBA) “I joined the bar in 1992 and got elevated in 2008. When I was only 13, I lost my father. I had no brother and a mere rental income of 500 Rupees only. When I joined the bar I started out with a briefcase and used to travel in the bus from Krishna Nagar to Tis Hazari. I had never dreamt that a common person with no godfather will be elevated to this position. I never thought I could reach that position,”
Justice Midha said that he had not had proper sleep in the last 13 years, had had no time to watch television or even read newspapers beyond the headlines.
At the last he said “Truth is justice in action. It’s always hiding under there somewhere.”
Senior Advocates Sidharth Luthra, Sandeep Sethi, Amandeep Singh Chandiok along with Justice Midha’s fellow-judge Justice Vipin Sanghi too were present on the occasion, alongside DHCBA President Mohit Mathur, Secretary Abhijat and Senior Counsel Dr. Abhishek Manu Singhvi.
On the event, DHCBA President Mohit Mathur said that he had been the “recipient of his generosity”
Singhvi said, “His research is so meticulous and so is his work in the field of Motor Vehicles Act.”
