The perfect gift for a Mumbaikar lawyer, a history and achitectural buff. The mug carries a important part of the Bombay High Court History in the form of the Monkey Judge.

The legendary one-eyed monkey from the interiors of the Bombay High court  has strong historic significance.  We have tried to re-create the magic here!

There has been a lot of curiosity & plenty of versions regarding this cheeky depiction. One version has it that while the building was still under construction an Indian subcontractor accused the British contractor of underpaying him and took the Englishman to court. As was certain in colonial India, he lost the case. He then avenged himself by carving the monkey as a part of the building to mock the system which had denied him justice. There are however, no conclusive answers.

Today, the British are gone and no longer enjoy legal privileges. India’s judicial system is supposedly blind. However, it still seems to have an eye for the rich and powerful...
