As a kid, remember bumping into your teacher outside of your school premises and being stunned at spotting them in a different avatar. They wouldn’t be dressed in their usual professional attire and it was mildly disorienting always. Well, something like that happened on Twitter after a photo of Chief Justice of India SA Bobde on a Harley Davidson bike recently went viral.
The photo was posted by the official Bar & Bench Twitter account. CJI Bobde can be seen enjoying his Harley Davidson. He is surrounded by people.
“Chief Justice of India SA Bobde trying out Harley Davidson. (Harley Davidson Limited edition CVO 2020) @harleydavidson #SupremeCourt”
Take a look:
As soon as Twitter discovered the photo, netizens were thrilled at the sight of the CJI doing something so...casual.
Here’s how they reacted:
A user wrote, “Good to see our lordships in the human avatar”
What a pun!

Another user said that the CJI could be a part of a bike gang called “Riders of Justice.”
Imagine the chief justice being a part of a bike gang named 'riders for justice' https://t.co/Gxj3ii33bz— Hamza Lakdawala (@legallyhamza) June 28, 2020

John Abraham? Nope. It’s Justice Bobde!
No that’s not John Abraham (no offence meant to the actor) it’s the Chief Justice of India, Justice Bobde.— seemi pasha (@seemi_pasha) June 28, 2020
Wondering if comments mocking him on social media will be seen as ‘contempt of court’ https://t.co/pPDhGP2au6
