"I realise that some of my criticisms may be mistaken; but to refuse to criticize judgements for fear of being mistaken is to abandon criticism altogether... If any of my criticisms are found to be correct, the cause is served; and if any are found to be incorrect the very process of finding out my mistakes must lead to the discovery of the right reasons, or better reasons than I have been able to give, and the cause is served just as well."

-Mr. HM Seervai, Preface to the 1st ed., Constitutional Law of India.

Yes they all speak once retired

Justice Ruma Pal like many of her peers has become vocal about the black spots in judiciary after retirement. (See the excerpt of a lecture reproduced in today's Indian Express here.)

The fact that she spoke about it after retirement in no way discredit the contents or value of the observations. It only points to the opportunities to set the system right when was part of the system. I am sure she must have done her share then and one of these days would speak about it.
