This big revelation was made while addressing a grand event in Goa.
Justice Chandrachud said ‘Students be curious, ask questions and seek answers’
New Delhi. Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud has told that in the initial days he used to moonlight in All India Radio and used to anchor and host many programs. He has played an important role in big decisions like Ayodhya and Sabarimala. He is also educated from Harvard University and started practice as a junior advocate in the Bombay High Court. He was speaking after inaugurating the first academic session of the India International University of Legal Education and Research (IIULER), an initiative of the Bar Council of India, in Goa.
In 2000, he worked as a judge in Bombay High Court and later as Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court. Along with law, he has a special interest in music. In a program, he told that he had done ‘moonlighting’ and used to host programs in All India Radio. CJI DY Chandrachud made a big disclosure that he has hosted programs like ‘Play it Cool’, Date with You’ and ‘Sunday Request’. In the program, he said that many people do not know that I have done ‘moonlighting’. Actually doing one job while doing other work simultaneously is called moonlighting. Fewer people are publicly aware of another work called moonlighting.
I choose the music of the lawyers in the court and then go home and listen to the music.
He jokingly said that when I choose the music of the lawyers in the court, then I go home and listen to the music and music is included in my daily routine. During his address, he asked the students to always be inquisitive. He said try to know yourself. The quest to know oneself is a constant quest. You should start that search early. Search better to understand your soul and your mind.
