Once great, this profession is now victim of short vision and owes to dismal state of judicial system in India. Every litigant knows the kind of logic or arguments opposite lawyers come up with, only with intention to delay proceedings or to irritate the other party. Remember Kasab's lawyer who argued in SC that dictum that ignorance of law is no excuse does not apply to him as he is not Indian and does not know (meaning, killing people is unlawful), Also that attack on Mumbai is not attack on India as he did not attack Parliament. I don't think Bar condemned that lawyer. Likewise, I do not of any lawyer who has built a successful business in India. By their myopic attitude, they break a deal and not help make it. Wonder how will they help build a nation? Pity that our Finance Minister is a lawyer. What else could we expect from this govt? It is hightime lawyers refocus on their values and priorities. If doctors adopt same values of short term interest, whole society will be in danger.
It's a myopic and one side of the story. Although the intention of the author to criticise the pendency of the cases is appreciable but linking it with economic development appears to be out of sync.
Lawyers do play a positive role on the economy . Besides being self employed and not being a drain on the government exchequer the lawyers themselves generate a lot of direct and indirect employment. Moreover, the lawyers do not only contest matrimonial matters but they also ensure that many innocent persons (most of whom are productive human resource) who have been falsely implicated do not languish in jails. It is also common knowledge that but for the lawyers and the Courts, many business organisations and industries would have to shut down on account of red tapism and inept, arbitrary, capricious decisions of the Government instrumentalities.
These are only few of the instances of the positive impact of the lawyers on the economy .
So my dear please do see the other side of the coin as they say that there are always two sides of the coin.

c it is very difficult to believe or trust yr lawyer. i dont say all are dishones. i had a very intelegent honest lawyer. he was doint very well for years. i won the case from lower court the other party went to higher court unfortunately when we went to higher court the lawyer of the opposite part is very influential he has high place there. he pressureised or my lawyer started permitting for adjournment and mixed up with them. dont know why.
cases are delayed of poor men one of reason courtsey of the lawyers towards each other vis a vis the court. no treat ment bear with this.
if some one has pls tell me also.
i went to several advocates to file contempt for their false hood but every one refused for this no advocate goes against advocate. what to do. few of they like heartless, inhuman and enemies of man kind.ths

You are right. There seems to be an error during raising children in our country. In western countries, parents leave children to sleep in an adjoining room, though with different reasons, but it helps children to remain stable and independent in their adult lives. All bad things may be there, but they are only a fraction of the developing countries.
Despite our great and unparalleled principles or teachings of Vedas, Indians are unable to practice them even half in our daily life.
We the disturbed people have created our systems including judiciary. Until our minds change, we can't change our systems.
Anyway it is nice to see your great profile.
Most of the social, economic and political ills that are being sufferred by the Masses in India today, are a creature of our present judicial system -- which includes Lawyers, too.
This is the ground reality of Indian Legal System.
Your comment is very interesting and relevant. It is very unfortunate that mankind has got entangled in its own creation of the knowledge web. Even amendments to the constitution can't help.
Very good article,
Every one irrespective of profession is contributing to society positively, negatively or at zero level. Until we reduce or eliminate the negative contribution by people, nothing can be done.
