Note ——————- By orders dt.26th Feb,2020, Justice P N Prakash has appointed Justice K Chandru( Retd), as Commissioner, to carry out sale of immovable properties, identified as belonging to one Mr. Manoj Rajan, and retrieved to his name, who has been assessed to 97.22% mental challenge by the premier institution NIMHANS, Bengaluru. It may be recalled that Manoj Raj was a hapless orphan, deaf and dumb and mentally challenged,when Judge P N Prakash , in a proactive gesture, antithesis to precept and practice of Judicial overreach, took charge of him as a ward of the court , in a loco parentis status. To capitulate in brief, the boy/man- all of 30 years was exploited by a group of crooks, lawyers too among them, who else, to grab his immovable properties and ruthlessly set about the task. Alas, as providence would have it, Justice P N Prakash , came on the scene, in their way. The learned judge appointed a Guardian to proceed further, in a Senior Advocate and then Manoj Rajan was safely lodged in Chellamuthu Trust, an institution in Madurai, to give continued care to him. Manoj Rajan was left by his parents crores in immovable properties viz. house/factory land and also company shares. Meticulously wading into the maze, police authorities were directed to catch the crooks and firstly their stranglehold was released. Thereafter, the Court got a formal guardian appointed in Mrs. Rajakumari, Chellamuthu Trust,under Multiple Disabilties Act,1999, meant to take care of such challenged entities. A group of good samaritans, including lawyers, possibly to make amends for the earlier conspiratorial team of lawyers, an accountant and a psychiatrist, have painstakingly worked hard to provide for Manoj Rajan, for his upkeep and maintenance, from and out of his own asset base. It was found that immovable properties belonging to such challenged entities had to be sold only with consent/concurrence of local level committee under the Collector of Madras under the Multiple Disabilities Act,1999. Proceeding cautiously and in a disciplined manner, the learned Judge requisitioned the services of the Advocate General of the State of TN. Thanks to such hands-on follow up, the local level committee has granted the permission for sale of the immovable properties, retrieved by the devoted efforts of the learned Judge, in double quick time, making mincemeat of the proverbial bureaucratic lethargy. As a follow up to the permission speedily granted by the local level committee considering the pitiable state of Manoj Rajan, requiring to get the immovable assets monetised, Justice PN Prakash, could only consider one retired judge – Justice K Chandru, who has the distinction of retiring with the title ‘ People’s Judge’, as Commissioner to sell the immovable properties and deposit the sale proceeds into the bank account of Manoj Rajan for his care and attention, as well as is possible, in his physical and mental state. What a team , a complete circular of well intentioned men of caliber. A lovely story to commend in the evil times we live in. Justice K Chandru (retd) has been requested to take the assistance of the reputed auctioneers M/s. Murray & Co, Chennai for logistics help to ease the sale. The Government departments have been directed to provide all support to Justice K Chandru to complete his noble assignment, in the cause of the forsaken orphan, who himself, is lying oblivious of either the conspiracy to kidnap and loot his assets or the efforts of good souls to rescue him from being taken for a royal ride. Manoj Rajan is blissfully unaware of the good, bad and ugly and but for the sincere and diligent intervention of Justice P N Prakash, one wonders whether Manoj Rajan would have had any bliss even while unaware. In addition to properties for sale in Chennai and around, Manoj Rajah’s maternal grandmother was found to have left a share in a Mumbai property. That has also been directed to be sold, for which executor of the Will and beneficiaries have readily agreed. Moral of the Story: Courts are not wooden, pedantic and ruthlessly objective. They can be empathetic, compassionate and caring, if the men who who matter man it and chose to use their position and power for noble causes. None more important than possibly a godforsaken orphan of the likes of Manoj Rajan. Hats off to any one and everyone, led by a good hearted judge at the helm, got their dedicated intent and efforts, to render true and genuine JUSTICE.
