Justice Liela Seth:      A Heart That Honours

Justice Liela Seth The first Woman Judge of Delhi High Court;  The first Woman Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court;  The first Woman to top the Bar Exams in London;  Member,15th Law Commission of India;  Responsible for amendments to the Hindu Succession Act that gave equal rights to daughters in Joint Family property;  Single Member Commission to examine the death of Rajan Pillai; Author,“On Balance”;  Activist of Human Rights issues.

  Rashmi Anand’s first book, Woman of the Elements, was born out of pain – but celebrated Woman Power.

This book, A heart that honours, appears to be born out of gratitude – of having found her freedom and herself. In it she honours her mother and her children, dreams and experiences, passion and hope, balance and independence, love and solitude, and many other aspects of life, including happiness and harmony.

She has faith in universal justice and does not believe in revenge. She grieves for the one who is causing her grief, for “What he creates for himself is pain beyond belief”. She has the capacity to forgive and forget and get on with her life with love and not hate. She is wise enough to realise that it is her forgiveness that will heal her.

I wish her book and her all success and hope she continues to “live with joy and dignity and quiet pride in spite of the tumult around.

- Leila Seth
