A heartfelt letter from a fifth-grade girl in Kerala to Chief Justice of India NV Ramana praising the Supreme Court for its efficient involvement in COVID-19 concerns elicited a similar reaction from the CJI, who handed her a signed copy of the Constitution.
Lidwina Joseph, a fifth-grade student at Kendriya Vidyalaya in Thrissur, wrote to the CJI to express her gratitude for the Supreme Court’s efforts to save lives during the COVID crisis.
“From the newspaper, I understood that your honourable court has intervened effectively at the sufferings and death of ordinary people in the fight against Covid-19. I am happy and feel proud your honorable court has moved orders for the supply of oxygen and saved many lives. I understood your honourable court has initiated effective steps in bringing down Covid-19 and the death rate in our country, especially in Delhi. I thank you your Honour for this. Now I feel very proud and happy,” Lidwina’s letter said.
With her letter, she sent a sketch of the CJI.
In his response, the CJI stated that he was impressed with Lidwina’s ability to keep up with national news and events.
“I am particularly impressed with how you maintained track of what was going on in the country and the care you showed for people’s well-being in the aftermath of the epidemic,” the CJI said in his answer.
I am certain that you will develop into an aware, aware, and responsible citizen who will make significant contributions to the nation’s building, he continued.
The Supreme Court has issued a plethora of directives in a case that was initiated suo motu to address COVID-19 concerns.
Following the most recent Supreme Court judgement on COVID immunisation, the Central Government altered its vaccination policy and offered free immunisation for anyone between the ages of 18 and 44.
