My last wish before I die is to see a logical end to this case: Ram Lalla’s 92 year old lawyer

Parasaran's father was an expert in Vedas. Hence, it could be said that he inherited the sanskars, which he took to another level.

If you would have been part of legal proceedings or even seen them, you would know that lawyers stand up when they put forth their arguments. In films at least you’d have seen it. In the 40-day hearing that took place in Supreme Court Parasaran was arguing for Ram Lalla Virajman. There were quite a few instances where he put forth the arguments in front of the Muslim parties.

During the hearing, one day the Chief Justice of India (CJI) asked Parasaran, “Would you like to sit and argue?” But he said, “My Lord, you are very kind. But it has been a tradition that one must get up and put forth the arguments. I hold this tradition very dear.” The reason the CJI asked this question was Parasaran’s age. The man who stood for hours arguing in the court is 92 years old.

During the Emergency imposed by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Parasaran was the Advocate General of Tamil Nadu and in 1980 he was appointed Solicitor General of India. Between 1983 to 1989, he served as the Attorney General of India. However, after 2016, his courtroom appearances have been rare. In his journey from Chennai to Delhi, he must have seen many bitter-sweet moments.

He had argued in Sabarimala case as well. He is considered an expert in Hindutva. Parasaran, who was a Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament from 2012 to 2018 has been a favourite lawyer for many state governments. He has so much knowledge about religious books that he cites them even during his arguments in the court. Sanjay Kishan Kaul, former Chief Justice of Madras High Court called him ‘Pitamah’ of Indian laws who contributed a lot without compromising on the religion.

During Sabarimala case, he had argued against allowing entry of women of menstruating age from entering the temple complex. He put forth the arguments on behalf of the devotees. In case of Ram Setu, both the sides tried to have him argue on their behalf. But, true to religion, he argued on behalf of the Ram Setu. He did this to save the SetuSamudram project. “This is the least I could do for my Lord Ram,” he had said.

Parasaran’s father was an expert in Vedas. Hence, it could be said that he inherited the sanskars, which he took to another level. Rajeev Dhavan, arguing on behalf of the Muslim parties, was having a tough time arguing in the day-to-day hearing of the case. He had appealed against it which the Supreme Court had rejected. But do you know what would Parasaran say to this? He used to say, “It is my last wish before I die that I take this case to its logical end.”
