Of Vaidhyas, Vaidheekas and Vakils


27 Sep 15, 01:56 PM

subbu: There are three dreaded tribes in our mortal world. Vaidhyas, Vaidheekas and vakils. Vaidhyas will never leave us till we die. Vaideehas will not leave us even on death. Vakils (lawyers) follow us thro' all our births. Whatever fees we fogot to pay the lawyers during our previous janma, we pay them now.. 

My dad (who was a constitutional lawyer those days) used to say:
the lawyer's job is defending the indefensible. It is not his job to speak only what is true, as with pure cement, none can construct any house. U will have to add sand to cement.  But in what proportion sand is to be added to the cement depends on the lawyer's understanding of not only the case, not even the laws, but with what he could convince those to whom he speaks. 

This wonderful gentleman Krishna Prasad goes on advising, sometimes admonishing also. Says always B Positive. B Positive. But several to whom he addresses are AB - negative.
