The Supreme Court need not always be correct. In the midst of a raging debate on the judiciary’s role, this remark comes from the Chief Justice himself.

Observing that no institution was infallible, Chief Justice of India Y.K. Sabharwal on Monday said, "The Supreme Court's decision is final — not necessarily because it is right. Every human being, every institution has limitations. No institution is infallible. But since we are final, we are called Supreme." He was replying to a schoolchild's question during a function. The CJI and  21  judges interacted with about 50 school children on the court premises.  satya.prakash@hindustantimes.com
