Manoj Das Gupta’s sphinx avatar

[Incidentally, silence can be cruel when a judge hearing a case maintains a monastic silence with the inscrutable face of the sphinx. Counsel has no clue about what the judge is thinking, whether he has understood counsel’s submissions or they have passed him by. Should counsel repeat his or her arguments or keep silent like the judge? A cruel predicament indeed and an instance of subtle judicial cruelty. Matrimonial and judicial cruelty, Soli J.

Manoj Das Gupta’s sphinx avatar is not only cruelty but also downright uncivil. [TNM]
