V.R. Krishna Iyer: A Long Life in Law and Politics — A Biographical Essay

In this essay, I review Krishna Iyer’s life and career in politics and law.

Among other things, I examine his time as a senior minister in India’s first communist state government. I also attempt to evaluate Krishna Iyer’s appointment to the Supreme Court, the cases he decided, and his mixed record during the Emergency.
