About the Jayasimha Foundation’s
support for Idea Prize
The Idea Prize is supported by the Jayasimha Foundation in memory of Late Justice R Jayasimha Babu (1942-2015), an illustrious Judge of the High Court of Madras, and earlier of the High Court of Karnataka. Justice Babu embodied the values of integrity, courage, discipline, and a pursuit of excellence combined with a spirit of service, which the Foundation stands for. His judgments on constitutional law, company and commercial law, and taxation have been cited widely. In his subsequent role as an arbitrator in domestic and international disputes, he was well known for his astute and determined approach to conflict resolution.
Justice Jayasimha Babu was also a connoisseur of Carnatic, Hindustani and Western classical music, and greatly enjoyed encouraging and empowering young talents in the law.
Agami is grateful for the Jayasimha Foundation’s support for the Idea Prize, in the memory of Justice R Jayasimha Babu.
