A prudent man in India
I have mentioned this quote before, but everytime I read it – I get the chills.
“Who is a reasonable man and who is a prudent man? These are matters of litigation.”
The reasonable and prudent man is a very common judicial test used in US and English law. The grand blunder we Indians made was to allow its use in constitutional law. I encourage everyone to read the constituent assembly debates which are available online (as of now).
