Hint: The questions focus is basically on how the judicial activism has led to rising concerns over violation of the principle of separation of power in Indian democracy.
|Introduction (I): Define separation of power and how it is significant in modern democracy.|
Body (B): 1) Talk about judicial activism and positive role it has played and how it is part of Checks and balances as present in Indian Parliamentary democracy. (Mentioning court case very important)
