'I'm a fan of whisky': Chief Justice, courtroom banter from senior lawyers

The courtroom erupted in laughter.

New Delhi:

Senior advocate Dinesh Dwivedi and Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud shared a jovial moment in the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Mr Dwivedi, with a hint of a joke, attributed his multi-coloured hair to the recent Holi festivities. “Apologies for my colorful hair,” he chuckled, adding, “It’s because of Holi. This is the disadvantage of many children and grandchildren in the neighborhood. You can’t save yourself.’

Chief Justice Chandrachud took the opportunity to add a touch of humor to the conversation. “Nothing to do with alcohol?” he joked, causing the audience to laugh.

Dwivedi laughed along and playfully admitted, “That’s right. Holi partly means alcohol… and I must confess… I am a fan of whisky.”

The courtroom erupted in laughter.

A nine-judge Constitution Bench heard a case on industrial alcohol. The bench deliberated on whether industrial alcohol is the same as edible alcohol available in the markets and on the overlapping powers between the Center and state governments in the field of industrial alcohol production.

Mr Dwivedi, representing the state of Uttar Pradesh, argued that all forms of alcohol are under state control.
