Rajeev Chandrasekhar, a prominent Indian politician and entrepreneur, has expressed deep sorrow at the passing of Fali S. Nariman, describing him as one of the brightest legal minds in the nation. Chandrasekhar reminisced about Nariman’s pivotal role as his lawyer during his early legal skirmishes as a young entrepreneur.

“He was my lawyer who helped in my earliest legal fights as a young 28-year-old when some big corporates tried to sabotage my first cellular license,” Chandrasekhar recounted, highlighting Nariman’s invaluable support during his formative years in business.

Beyond their professional association, Chandrasekhar acknowledged Nariman’s longstanding contributions as Karnataka’s legal counsel for over three decades. He extended his deepest condolences to Nariman’s family and friends, bidding farewell with the traditional Hindu prayer, “Om Shanti.”

Fali S. Nariman, born on January 10, 1929, and passing away on February 21, 2024, was a revered figure in Indian jurisprudence. As a senior advocate to the Supreme Court of India since 1971, Nariman left an indelible mark on the legal landscape. His international recognition as an expert in arbitration and his prowess as a constitutional lawyer earned him accolades throughout his illustrious career.

Nariman notably served as the President of the Bar Association of India from 1991 to 2010 and was honored with the prestigious 19th Lal Bahadur Shastri National Award for Excellence in Public Administration in 2018. His tenure as the Additional Solicitor General of India from May 1972 to June 1975 further exemplified his commitment to public service and legal excellence.

Fali S. Nariman’s demise marks the end of an era in Indian law, leaving behind a legacy of integrity, brilliance, and unwavering dedication to justice. His passing is mourned not only by the legal fraternity but also by the nation, which has lost one of its most distinguished legal luminaries.
