I feel like sharing the TOI report that brought smile this morning even in a sense of grief (pls. refer to the previous post "Life owes"). I leave it you how you interpret this story. To me a student always remains a student irrespective of age, position etc. and there is this fear of exam., a irrepressible urge to 'cheat' when preparation is lacking...and some of them are habitual, even if the prep. is good, solution obtained, a confirmation from fellow student gives a sense of relief. Cheating in exam. is a subject by itself ... and there are so many varieties of them most of which do not get noticed, ignored by invigilator (he may be remembering his own student days or doe not care) or got away with by a stare, gentle nudge, different degrees of threat (none of which reaches ignition point). However, this is not even a borderline case ... and gross bad luck that the law caught up with the ones who are custodian of the same.
Five judges caught copying,suspended


Hyderabad: Five judges belonging to the state subordinate judiciary were suspended by the Andhra Pradesh high court on Wednesday for allegedly copying while writing their LLM exams at the Arts College of Kakatiya University in Warangal on Tuesday.
One of the judges was found copying from a law book hidden under his answer sheet.Written slips and pages torn from textbooks were seized from other judges.The copying material was confiscated by university invigilators who stopped the judges from writing any further.
The judges were doing LLM under distance mode from Kakatiya University as the degree would help them gain some increments in their career.
Those placed under suspension include K Ajitsimha Rao,senior civil judge,Ranga Reddy district,M Kistappa,principal senior civil judge,Anantapur,P Vijayendar Reddy,second additional district judge,Ranga Reddy district,M Srinivasachary,senior civil judge in Bapatla of Guntur district and Hanumantha Rao,additional junior civil judge in Warangal.
According to N Manohar,the universitys additional controller of examinations,the candidates were taking their exams in Room No 102 when a team headed by him made a surprise visit.
The judges were caught on camera copying from books,smuggled notes,and each other.Upon receipt of this information,the HC suspended them from service pending an inquiry.
The Warangal Bar Association said the whole episode was a blot on the judiciary.The judiciary is the final recourse for the people to get justice,and if the judges indulge in this kind of malpractice,how can you trust the judgment of the courts asked Ravi Kumar of the association.
