Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana on Saturday exhorted people to tirelessly strive towards preserving and furthering liberty and democracy..The CJI was visiting the Independence Hall in Philadelphia, United States of America where, in 1776, the Second Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence and subsequently created and signed the United States Constitution. “This monument marks a defining moment in human civilisation. All democracies have been inspired by the values which originated from this sacred place. It represents inviolable guarantees and promises definitive of human dignity and existence. Standing in this historic hall, one cannot but be moved by the the bravery, spirit and ideals that motivated the founding fathers of the United States of America that continue to resonate even today, across the globe. It is necessary for us all, the citizens of the world, to work tirelessly to sustain and further the liberty, freedom and democracy our forefathers have fought for. That is the only tribute worthy of their sacrifices,” the CJI said after the visit..Earlier last week, the CJI had delivered the inaugural address at the Annual Meet of Indo-German Chamber of Commerce on the theme "Arbitration in a Globalised World- The Indian Experience" at Dortmund, Germany.
