Time to change the words "Vakalatnam" into English to avoid Confusion in the Court with power of Attorney?

Dear All,

                           India that is Bharat, does not only consists of Hindus, but there are Muslims,Christians,Parsis etc,etc. And those who are not acquinted with hindi words like Vakalat get confused with power of Attorney, though the two are distinct words and expression under different Acts of the Parliament, like the PA Act,Advocates Act,CPC and Stamp act etc. As such, time has come to convert the words Vakalat into approproate english words, to avoid any confusion in the court and waste of time.

Brother Assumi is inquistive and accademical. But I don't find anybody in my 31 years of experinece both rustic, illiterate etc who cannot mug up Vakkalathnama. In Malayalam also Vakkalathnama is called as Vakkalath. It now has an english upgradation. So forget about that. The other thing PA is called Mukthiar. What about in other language. There must be some confusion in others then only they need an advocate.
