MAYBE, Just maybe, Mr. Madhu alias "tushar comic" may think of having an interaction with a French english Teacher and then with a British english Teacher and then with a American english Teacher for the difference between the word "professional" and "profession". And then let us know about the results.
Alternatively, Mr. Madhu could also introspect on the possibility of going back to School, with his innumerable and time-consuming irrelevant SELF-thought provoking questions.
HOWEVER, apart from above and besides also in agreement with Ms. Suchitra, a "professional" has legal standing in a Court of Law, in the sense that the Court will accept opinions of only a "QUALIFIED" professional AND NOT FROM A "QUACK" PROFESSIONAL.
A "QUACK PROFESSIONAL" is a person, who commercially practices a profession without possessing a registered degree in that profession.
eg. a Carpenter or a Plumber or a Electrician is a profession name and not a "qualification" name. This profession may stem from years of experience or from ancestors, BUT not necessarily from education. HOWEVER, if a person is educationally trained in a approrpiate & registered "technical institute" in the field of Carpenter or Plumber or Electrician, then he is qualified to be a professional and can now issue legal certificates pertaining to his work, which is acceptable as evidence in a Court of Law. Otherwise a certificate from a "quack professional" (i.e. unqualified professional) can always be used to wipe the WC.
Beggary is a "profession" too. BUT he cannot be called as a "Professional Beggar".
Doctor is a "profession" too. BUT he can be called a "Doctor", IF he holds a registered qualification, as approved by State Governments. A doctor practising without professional qualification is legally termed as a "quack doctor".
A licensed Doctor may practice the "Quack Profession" of a unlicensed Plumber. BUT A LICENSED "PLUMBER" CANNOT (repeat) CANNOT PRACTICE THE PROFESSION OF A "DOCTOR", due to qualification and educational title & legal restraints.
BY virtue of being educated in a particular field, from a registered institution, THE LAW PROVIDES HIM A "DEGREE & TITLE" to his profession wherein the Law provides RIGHTS TO the person to be called a Professional and confers upon him with legal powers to practice and issue certificates, that can be used as evidence in a Court of Law.
e.g. A qualified & registered Civil Engineer issuing a legal certificate for the type of building constructed. NOW this certificate can be legally issued only by a professional, who has qualified and has been trained in a registered institution teaching that profession. By issuing such legal certificates, the professional is bound by his education and qualification and on his professional failure becomes open to "Breach of Trust & Confidence" under IPC, & under the Consumer Protection Act & a host of other Laws, for appropriate prosecution and damages.
A "kadia" or a "mistry" or a "mason", (who is unqualified BUT experienced) has no jurisdiction to issue such legal certificates, and is free from all legal encumbrances or legal hassles.
AND SURPRINGLY, the Law or say the Constitution of India or World, does not provide ANY MANDATORY QUALIFICATON whatsoever, for the nefarious Parliamentarians, who run the business of the Country, whereas the Law mandates that only a Registered and Qualified person in Law, can run the business of Advocacy.
