My Rendezvous with Law

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in
My rendezvous with Law is barely 2 years old. And Man! I already feel the heat! I already feel what people feel for lawyers. I have been transformed from a mere Pre-University student to a 'lawyer'. So do my non-law friends sarcastically address me as. And as though I am the most established senior advocate in the Supreme Court of India,I proudly give them a 1000 watt smile, as I hear them call out to me that way, and I take my seat amidst them, congratulating myself for having made the right career choice in my life!
According to the University regulations of Engineering and Medicine colleges in Karnataka, the study of Constitution of India has been made mandatory. And more often than not, this subject bears all the brunt of not only the students, but also of the apathetic lecturers, in that, no one is interested in knowing when was the Constitution of India constituted, when was it enacted, when was it adopted, or in that matter, what the difference is, among the three! I have come to have the cherished privilege of answering their cute little queries of the kinds, "Is there any difference between the Supreme Court and the Apex Court?", "What is the difference between Article, Section and Clause?", et al.
At times, I get transformed into the most sought after Corporate Legal Advisor of my city, being 'honored' and being seeked 'appointments' from, by the wannabe corporations, to schedule the Core Committee meetings! In this regard, a story is worth mentioning.
As I enrolled myself as a volunteer in a local NGO, I came across a team of exceptionally creative, highly motivated team of student entrepreneurs, who want to establish themselves as a world-class Corporation. During my frequent visits to this NGO, I had the opportunity of being a part of their 'Core Committee Meetings' and I was able to give them an input here and a suggestion there, not in the capacity of a full fledged lawyer, but in the capacity of a curious student, who had just then begun the adventurous voyage in the seas of Law, and was having only a fleeting acquaintance of what actually contained in the sea. In the due course of time, the student volunteers turned out to be good friends of mine, and I now stand raked in as one of the indispensable members of this 'Core Committee' of the 'Company'. Moreover, I have been regarded as the 'legal advisor' of this 'Company'! (Being 'paid' in terms of friendship, though!)
All this, as is happening in my life, portrays a master plan wherein, I am ought to put into practice whatever it is that I learn (or shall I say I am taught) in the Law School. This rendezvous of mine, with Law, seems to be getting more and more romantic by the passing time. Let this Love grow, and find no impediments, when it impediments find! Let it sail across the sea, braving it all!
May it be granted the serenity of accepting the responsibility it deserves!
