From CJI JS Kehar’s Bio: Blood Donor every 3 months, from 40 years

EVERY three months, he quietly walks into All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here to donate blood — he’s been doing this for more than four decades now, the last five of them in Delhi since he moved here as a judge of the Supreme Court in September 2011.

Justice J S Khehar’s quarterly blood donation, true to his style, has remained under wraps, known to a small group of friends and colleagues. Unobtrusiveness — bordering on the reclusive — has been as much a part of his and wife Madhurpreet Kaur’s routine, as his tendency to deliver headline-making judgments.

Lawyers in Chandigarh fondly talk of a judge who would never miss a blood-donation camp organised by the Punjab and Haryana High Court Bar Association.

“It was almost as if it (donating blood) was a mission for him. He would be among the first to volunteer and within minutes of donating, he would be back on the bench, dispensing justice,” recalls a senior lawyer in Punjab and Haryana High Court.
