B Ganga Raju: Shri M V Venugopalan's post reflects the agony of all pensioners. Our case can be said to be of long " gestation" period. All said and done did the government of the day finally make up its mind to say yes or no to the matter of updation of pension along with each wage revision to LIC pensioners?  Or is the bench expected to make law for the government? 

"Intolerance" may hog the headlines but not delays in courts. And how many of our brothers remember the famous " contempt of Court" case against late Com. EMS Namboodiripad for saying that judiciary as part of the system shares the same class character? 

For me I would be satisfied if all our case managers appear with one face in this legal fight.  When the matter is dragged to Supreme Court by LIC/Government we have to necessarily bear with the agony of endless wait. 

Afterall our case is not going to decide the fate of ruling party or who should rule this country.  But let us not get worked up or emotionally charged feeling that the verdict would come once the hearing commences. Hearing also would consume time.

JM Aboobucker: From the write up of Mr MSM it appears there is every possibility of the case coming up for hearing on 2-12-2015 may head for further adjournment beyond the Xmas vacation for SC. 

The powerful party to the case always appear to have its own way and wishes acquiesced by the court to the disadvantage of the weaker party to the case. 

Really we are in a very unenviable situation facing a mighty opponent.
