V.R. Krishna Iyer (born 1915, Kerala), had his legal education in the Madras Law College, and was enrolled as Advocate in 1938.

He championed the cause of the poor and downtrodden from the earliest days of his career and defended workers and peasants against feudal exploitation and mobilized legal action for social justice in pre-independence days.

Shri Krishna Iyer is the recipient of several prestigious awards. A prolific writer and an eminent speaker, he has published a large number of articles and authored more than 50 books, besides delivering more than 150 lectures in India and abroad.

A few prefatory words may perhaps be apt for a book which runs wild subject wise and has no common thread to link up except that the maverick author is the same, the coverage of topics is wide and the objective of all the essays is humanist and designed to improve the social order.

Law and Justice find more presence in the book. In a different sense, it may be said that layering and just icing are not narrow professions but their glory consists in the encyclopedic vision that a great lawyer and a great judge should possess. I claim to be neither but I have been inspired often by lawyers and judges who have risen to great heights transcending forensic trammels. To be a lawyer, merely a lawyer, to be confined to law books and rulings of courts and lucrative success, is not a correct understanding of the mental, moral amplitude of a doyen of the bar or leader on the bench.

"Attorneys are officers of the court and are important aids in the administration of justice. The practice of law is not confined to cases conducted in court. In fact, the major portion of the practice of many capable lawyers consists of work done outside of the courts. For centuries it has been recognized that the practice of law can safely be entrusted only to those who have satisfied the standards of academic and legal learning required of them by the legal profession, who have become familiar with the traditional duties and obligations of lawyer to client, who have training and experience enabling them to ascertain the rights of clients and to take the necessary steps to enforce them, and who as sworn officials of the court have become a part and parcel of the judicial department of our government.
