मृच्छकटिक - न्यायाधीश

शास्त्रज्ञः कपटानुसारकुशलो वक्ता न च क्रोधनः
तुल्यो मित्रपरस्वकेषु चरितं दृष्ट्वैव दत्तोत्तरः |
क्लिबान् पालयिता शठान् व्यथयिता धर्म्यो न लोभान्वितः
द्विर्भावे परतत्त्वबद्धहृदयो राज्ञश्च कोपापहः ||

- मृच्छकटिक

A judge has to be well educated. He is skilled in recognizing deceit. He speaks pleasantly. He speaks with friends and foe alike with respect and humility. He can see watch your actions and tell what you are up to. He will protect the weak. He will punish the culprits. He is not easily influenced by greed. When in doubt he will always do the right thing. His actions will relieve the king of any anger.
