Court verdict on Mullaperiyar dam should not all about be objectivity but subjectivity too

In court, what is always looked for is the objectivity manifested with the evidence and circumstances of a particular case. There is seldom any space for subjectivity or humanitarian concerns instead; it is all about evidence and findings based out of the studies undertaken by an expert group or an empowered committee on any controversial issues or of pertaining to a large segment of the society. In the Mullaperiyar dam case, the court should have gone beyond the fabricated veracity of facts presented by plaintiff, Tamil Nadu, and looked into the subjective reality too.
