1st National ‘Online’ Amusing Courtroom Story Writing Competition, 2020 By Desi Kaanoon [Register By 25th Sep, 2020]

About the competition

Judiciary is the temple of justice. While the courts deliver numerous significant judgments every day which pose a grave concern to the country, the huge backlog of cases, random conversations struck with people at courts and “tareekhpetareekh” has become a subject of exasperation and hilarity at the same time.

Many of us have amusing incidents at court to recount- whether as a party to the proceeding, as an intern, as an advocate, or even as a judge. To bring some mirth in these testing times, we invite you all to share your original experience or story with us and get a chance to win exciting prizes. These stories can be about you or something you have witnessed.
