A cricket match was organised at Bal Bhavan School of Dwarka by the Dwarka Court Bar Association (DCBA) between the Judges and Advocates of Dwarka Court on Sunday (February 28), which aimed at enhancing the fitness level and sporting spirit among the fraternity and maintaining a cordial relationship between the Bar and the Bench.

District and Sessions Judge Narottam Kaushal said, “The purpose of playing this friendly match is to bring harmony and bonhomie between the members of the Bar and the Bench, as we all usually meet in a very formal atmosphere, where we have limited interaction, which mostly revolves around work.

“Such matches should be organised more often, as they give us reprieve from the normal life and also brings out the sportsperson among us all. All of us have won today, as the game here is not about victory or loss, but about bonding between us,” he added.

Speaking on the occasion, President of the Dwarka District Court Bar Association Y P Singh said the game proved to be a great stress buster for everyone.

“The relationship between the lawyers and Judges is symbiotic, as they both need each other for the smooth functioning of Judiciary. We all play a very important part of the Judiciary and this is a good way to maintain cordial relations between us,” added Mr Singh, who is also the Senior Government Counsel in the Union of India and former Chairman of Co-ordination committee of all District Courts Bar Associations in Delhi.
