I am not convinced with the ideas mentioned in this article Let us take some other service based industries a)A teacher has to know not only her subject, but to teach a student she has to know his family background, the kind of people the student is interacting with after school hours. Some teachers are aware that the student goes for singing classes and accordingly they allow them to participate in school functions. This awareness of what the student does after school is none of her concern, but she has to find out to do her job well. b) A software developer has to develop software and generate the output within a time frame of 2 months or 2 years depending on the volume of the project. Sometimes a person from science background has to code an accounting software. Thus he/she has to get acquainted with accounting concepts to develop software c)A software tester has to learn some amount of coding in languages which are not his concern so that he/she can test software properly. d)An architect who is dealing with a redevleopment project sometimes has less knowledge of his profession but is an expert in managing minds and knows A-Z of the functioning of the concerened Muncipal Corporation. e)A Chartered accountant does not limit only to his profession but also has a good amount of knowledge as to what a company secretary does and vice versa. f)A society watchman is not just a watchman but also has to do the job of giving water supply to society at a fixed time. g)A markteing professional does not restrict himself only to the brand that he is selling; but has a good amount of knowledge of the brands of competitors also. h)A lecturer has to correct many papers, make question papers, arrange for functions in college even though he/she is meant to just stand in the class and give lectures. Hence it is nothing great if lawyers have to learn and do something other than law to understand the client. Doing RTI for the client and running about in registration offices for the client is something lawyers should not do. Because things like RTI can be done by the clients themselves. I have seen lawyers educating the client to get data for them, rather than making their assistants running here and there for the client. To sum it up, in India, we become eligible for 100% payment only after we offer 150% services.

It will take at least three to four life times to master the complete law and no lawyer can claim to be superior or super lawyer. But one thing is for sure, that lawyer's job is by no means that easy rather a Herculean task. Lawyer's ability is not measured by the fees that is charge from the client but the dedications to the services that is assigned to lawyer and his strategy in legal battle.Lawyer fight with his fellow lawyer in the court not for fame or money but for justice and for justice alone. Fees are charge but it should be reasonable, and this reminds me of one of my client " look even porter use to charge me money to put my bag in the bus."

see what Nasscom says why it can't pontificate - 'fact is the IT personnel were not appropriately skilled by very colleges nor by their own employers when so how the outsources would use these worthies - why cry hoarse , fact is world needs every day something new that is the real news if you don't posses customer friendly skills you get in to obsolesence faster than ever before - simply reskilling doesn't exist when u lack properly backed by theoretical studies too - so universities inn india just failed - don't simply be carried away by 'Manki bhat' man, who is good at heart he has to strategies to help - you can't never get strategies as most of them as RK Laxman called school drop outs that only land in politics and political gaming - see yesterday what your inf and broadcasting minister said 'we have won in ICJ' not realizing you have a long way to go to save Jhadav if he is still alive in Pakistan - it is a known fact , any one not implements ICJ orders just get away with 'sorry from the rogue govts - see r=even USA played with Germany and so many - so Pak has a lot to play 'duck - what we won in ICJ a 'stay' not saved from 'gallows'; first jhadav need to be alive if not what we won ; or if we win after consular access u need to win the matter at Pak SC against Army court marshal order , so without realizing we talk like media does so the ministers obviously worse than 'school drop outs' what RKL said. facts are different that is based on 'ground realities' not some 'slogan mongering; like Pak foreign minister saying ICJ don't have jurisdiction ' i can do what i want' but again changing some 'legal team - issue is 'India approached after 16 requests for consular access that way what the Pak minister saying is not that easy too. Ministers have a knack or politicians just to keep the people at 'sixes and sevens;' by so called 'mis information. Just egging fir second term in india for BJP, before actually 2019 results are known nothing is sure, till the cat is out of the bag!

Yoga cannot be mandatory in schools ; health to get there are 360 degrees are there to look at health so too any 'subject' no subject can be mandatory to any that way optionals and different combinations or free choices were allowed as Indian Institute of Sciences, where an engineer can pick up some philosophical subjects too. Nothing can be mandatory except your constitution of India, more particularly the fundamental rights found in Part III of the constitution - No lawyer can claim he is superior or any inferior at all...
