The real question is: What is on Iftikhar Chaudhry's mind?
What kind of Supreme Court are we going to see after his reinstatement on March 21?
Would Chaudhry's old suo-moto style of judiciary now burgeon, or would it dwindle in favor of pragmatism?
And whatever style the Supreme Court adopts would determine if future candidates for Pakistan's top government positions would still salivate over the few perks those jobs offer, or would they shiver over the responsibility of looking after the well-being of 170 million mostly impoverished people.
