The Leaflet was founded by Senior Advocates Indira Jaising and Anand Grover, in 2018, to engage in critical development of legal opinion. The website was envisioned as a niche space for exemplary writings on the horizons of justice, rule of law and constitutionalism. We live in times where the law is everywhere, and yet the law itself remains shrouded in mystery, cloaked in arcane jargons that are not accessible to the ordinary citizen.
The Leaflet is committed to the ideals of constitutional morality and rule of law. At the pre-launch of The Leaflet, Justice Chelameswar, very succinctly defined our philosophy as “Democracy is strengthened by the bold and the vigilant”, and it is this vigil that we pursue to foreground. Ms. Indira Jaising believes that the law is like plasticine in our hands, and we must shape it to the benefit of the most vulnerable and marginalised.
