In this office every day is a new day with a new case or a new court.
There are variety of cases ranging from criminal cases, civil cases, co-operative societies disputes, family disputes etc.
When the Ashok sir was there in the court then seeing him cross examining or making an argument was an awesome experience.
Observing the court proceedings was an regular affair, which is the seed for learning.
