This Day That Age
To have our own version of This Day That Age, I searched June 16, 2000 (that is the earliest year available with The Hindu online edition) to read the opinion piece it carried on that day. What I found was an interesting piece by Rajeev Dhavan on the Law Commission headed by Jeevan Reddy, just on the heels of its report on the Prevention of Terrorism Bill. Dwelling on Justice Reddy's free speech jurisprudence, when he was on the Supreme Court, Rajeev Dhavan regretted his volte-face as the head of the Law Commission.
