High courts functioning with 3/4 judges - what was that?

This is a slightly older news, about 3 months old, which I could not blog about earlier. However I realized that for a litigant/petitioner/respondent/accused who is used to Indian Judicial Time (IJT), 3 months is like 3 days! So it is still fresh for the court-weary people.

So I present the recent news which gives the gory statistics on the shortage of judges in Indian high courts:

There is one kind of poverty where the poor does not have enough food to eat. There is another kind of poverty where the poor does not even have a big enough vessel to hold food to eat, even if food was available somehow. We seem to be suffering from the latter kind of poverty in our judicial system.
