Legal Raavan: Every Law Student’s Nightmare!!!

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

An arrogant professor, with a sole ambition in life --- TORTURE! Many a Law Student has faced this, and many more shall don the robes of the ‘Sacrificial Lamb’. Here’s to all those Legal Raavan’s who have made an otherwise heavenly Law School Experience hell for the students!

PS – The sole inspiration for this post has been one of the entries under the Facebook Group ‘You know you are in Law School When’, which refers to “Professors who just didn’t get enough hugs as children.”

PS2 – (Disclaimer, not the PlayStation Series) – This post is in all probability Fictitious. Any similarity with any Professor, dead or alive, killing or survived, is completely unintentional, and deeply (as deep as LegalPoet’s Thoughts) regretted.

Legal Raavan: Every Law Student’s Nightmare!!!


He entered the classroom,

With long, arrogant strides.

With a no non-sense hair-cut,

Where from stemmed such pride?!?!


I’m Professor Bond, James Bond, said he.

007 without a good cause is a twat, ain’t he???

He behaved like the Devil! The Apocalypse was here!

We thought of him as Raavan, in the Legal sphere.


With Condescension as his weapon,

And a devilish smile to match.

He had earned himself a scholarship,

Through a boundary and a catch.


He returned with his scholarship,

Glowing with conceit.

His own bad grades and failures

Seemed to take a back seat.


He now made it his life’s aim,

To denigrate and demoralize;

His students worked day and night,

Alas! There was no prize!


As toil and sweat went in vain,

They took a valiant stand.

Like the Titans of Alexander,

They wanted to bajaao band!


Many protests followed,

But the Devil wouldn’t leave his den.

Arrogance made his head swell up,

Till he sprouted ten!


Grades Plummeted, Administration Crumbled,

As the foolish devil growled and grumbled.

Students cried, some even died.

This just reminded me of the ‘3 Idiots’ suicide.


How on earth could one conquer;

A Force that was so strong.

That had engulfed all power in its wake

All this seemed so wrong.


Then the Ramayan started to show its truth.

It wasn’t just a myth.

The Constitution of the College

Found its Substance and Pith.


Legal Raavan was relieved.

Relieved of all his duties!

With 9 of his 10 bloated heads punctured;

He was sent away with stones and jooties.


Thus Legal Raavan was conquered.

There is proof that Ram Exists.

Please do not lose hope while you face yours,

He shall soon be kicked into the abyss!
