Object and the ultimate purpose in the mind of the Court while initiating contempt proceedings was not to afford protection to the judges from imputation to which they might be exposed personally as individuals or to satisfy the ego of a judge by punishing such person, instead, it was to maintain and strengthen the confidence of the public in general and the litigants, in the Court and to vindicate the honor and dignity of the Court to ensure that the administration of justice was not diminished or weakened.
