Shri Jagdish Sharan Verma , B.Sc., LL.B. - Born on 18th January, 1933. Educated at Venkat High School, Satna (Madhya Pradesh); Government Jubilee Inter College, Lucknow; Ewing Christian College, Allahabad and University of Allahabad. Enrolled Pleader in the Vindhya Pradesh Judicial Commissioner's Court, Rewa in January, 1955; Advocate, Madhya Pradesh High Court in August, 1959. Practised in constitutional, civil, criminal, taxation and revenue matters. My father Shri Vasudev Gangadhar Dikshit a retied Dist. & sessions Judge & Shri Ram Sevak Varma father of Justice varma were family friends. They lived in a house named “Poorn Nirbhay Ashram”. All of their family were highly disciplined and sweet spoken. Now I am sixty two, but then as an adorable child, I had free passage in their house and heart. Jagdishji wanted to join IAF, but destiny had drawn for him a greater charter of duty towards nation and so he perused law on the advice of my father and subsequently was blessed to be an advocate. He along with Shri Nath Das Mukherji joined my father as his young juniors to practice at satna. I remember that they used to be at our house at two hours before going to court for preparing the days engagements.
Their family was blessed by their P.P.Guru when ever he visited them we also used to be at his feet to pay our obeisance. Shri Varma was great legal scholar & will be remembered for his humane constitutional interpretations, unique judgements & outstanding contributions. As said in Shrimad Bhagvad Geeta he demonstrated “stithi pragyata”, “ Nirpekshta” and “ Nyayapriyat ”at all times. I pray Parmataman to render his soul peace. I convey my deep condolence to his family.
