Mr. Nariman you are truly inspirational and many young aspiring lawyers are in awe of you. I am in complete agreement with the views expressed by you. The process of learning in the legal profession is an unending journey which truly enriches you. However, I may add that the nobility in the profession seems to have disappeared. A famous quote reads \"He is no lawyer who cannot take two sides\" and a vast majority of the distinguished senior lawyers these days end up on the side where they are paid more which is ironical. I would also add that the younger breed of lawyers deserve a more congenial environment viz. better Court infrastructure, supportive judges, more opportunities and higher remuneration.

I FAIL TO UNDERSTAND WHY LEADING SENIOR ADVOCATES (SOME OF THEM LEADING CONSTITUTIONAL EXPERTS)WHILE REPRESENTING THE RICH AND THE POWERFUL TAKE STAND WHICH ARE ANTI PEOPLE WHICH IS AGAINST THE POOR AND THE DOWNTRODDEN. THEY DO SO KNOWINGLY AND COME UP WITH WHIMSICAL ARGUMENTS AND WITH THEIR NAME AND EXPERTISE ARE ABLE TO CONVINCE THE JUDGES. IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO EARN MONEY AND WIN A CASE FOR THE CLIENT EVEN WHEN YOU KNOW THE CLIENT IS GOING TO EXPLOIT THE POOR.MY SUGGESTIONS FOR THE EXPERT SENIORS ARE THAT AFTER SOMETIME WHEN YOU HAVE ALREADY MADE YOUR NAME AND EARNED MONEY YOU NEED TO TAKE UP CASES OF PUBLIC CAUSES AND BRING SMILE TO THE COMMON MAN .

Sir, a big fan of yours. Have seen you on and off court, and I have to say that you have set the bar so so high for the new lawyers that we all will strive and may never reach where you are. Such a great personality, yet so humble. I only wish many of us could spend time with you and learn how you do it all.Bar and bench - Congrats on your one year. I think you are far ahead of other legal news websites. Best wishes and keep us all informed. You are the first website I log on everyday when I get to work.
