1) We need to change the fact that the Indian Judiciary lacks transparency and accountability. The appointment process of judges is really opaque as is the punishment given to judges who may break the law. 2) Why must the Supreme Court of India comment on almost everything because of a PIL hearing (public interest litigation) or more like private interest litigation. This is well known but not much is being done to thwart the wheels of justice and/or slowdown the judicial process. 3) Lower courts are riddled with acute corruption, but rarely are judges or other staff sent to jail.
