The Bombay High Court on Thursday dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking change of name for the orphans describing them as ’swanath’ instead of ‘anath’ observing the issue required no interference from the Court..The plea claimed that children who had lost their parents faced a vulnerability and the existing word ‘anath’ reflects a needy and vulnerable child.Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Madhav Jamdar observed that the word ‘anath’ was being used in Marathi, Hindi and even Bengali languages as a synonym for orphan since ages.“We do not agree with the petitioner that the word attaches any stigma. The plea seeks to change the name, to the trust to which the petitioner belongs to. This is not even a case where we ought to push ourselves to even ask the State. There is first of all no need for a change. PIL is dismissed”, the Bench held..Advocate Uday Warunjikar for the petitioner, Swanath Foundation, pointed out that the proposed word ‘swanath’ would denote the child is self-reliant and confident.The Bench was, however, not inclined to intervene in the issue.“It is a description for children having no parents. What is wrong in that? Some PIL litigant now comes and says change the word.. What does he know about linguistics. It is not always the case, that our (judicial opinion) is the best opinion and executive opinion is not. Sometimes we have to be wise, we also have to draw the ‘lakshman rekha’ and not intervene in every matter”, the Bench said.
