Hon'ble Prime Minister of India Sir,
We the citizens of India are writing to you requesting to confer our Country's top civilian award 'Bharat Ratna' to one of the great legal jurist India ever had - Mr. NANI PHALKIVALA, who sacrificed his entire life to safeguard the democracy from destruction and uplift the spirit of Constitutionalism.
About Nani Phalkivala, Justice H.R. Khanna once said that - _"If a count were to be made of the ten topmost lawyers of the world, I have no doubt that Mr. Phalkivala's name would find a prominent place therein."_
The year 2020 is the centenary birth anniversary of Nani Phalkivala, who single handedly saved our constitution with his highly eloquent advocacy skills in the landmark case of Keshavnanda Bharti v. State of Kerala.
Sir we consider that if Dr. B.R. Ambedkar gave us this compassionate Constitution, then it was Nani Phalkivala who saved the our Constitution from getting destroyed and assisted the Supreme Court to evolve the doctrine of Basic Structure of the Indian Constitution.
He was also one of the unofficial finance minister of India, who use to give commentary on annual union budget in Barabourne Stadium, Mumbai, where large number of people from all fields of life used to come to listen to his speeches.
He was also man of very genial, affable and altruist nature and it will surely take centuries for India to create a human like Nani Phalkivala.
Hence, we request you to confer Bharat Ratna to Nani Phalkivala in the year 2020 which will coincides with 100 years of his birth celebrations.
