Judiciary -- not for We The People, but for profit of lawyers & judges

The judiciary is functioning as an unchecked power -- not as a legitimate organ of governance with checks and balances. Its various constituents are clumping together, and are wielding absolute, uncontrolled power. This is unhealthy for the nation, and it must be halted.
Roughly 19,000 judges are holding 127 crore Indians hostage to their arbitrary and frequently unlawful decisions, for which they cannot be held accountable. Over 3 lakh undertrials languish in judicial custody without a hearing, while the courts shut down for all sorts of holidays and lengthy vacations. Between 10 to 15 crore Indians are perennially harassed by pending cases of various kinds. Where is justice?
Less than 100 years ago, our forefathers staged a prolonged struggle for independence from British Rule. There have been numerous struggles and movements after Independence also, against all sorts of tyranny and oppression. So, it may be reasonable to believe that people from different walks of life can come together to break the judiciary's stranglehold by launching a civil disobedience movement.
