For some we are blood suckers.
Demands money here and there.
For some we are there to provide free service.
Asking fees is a crime.
Getting a loan is still a dream till-
till you have become senior,
or you have well paying client.
To show you have a bank balance to repay.
But still question lies-
Needs make you ask for loan.
Sometimes its become nightmare-
A ghost reality,
To ask her dad to marry his daughter.
Not so privilege like engineers, doctors or government servant-
None wants a lawyer son-in-law.
Specially if they are first generation lawyers.
Lawyers have ‘L’, so have a labour.
But later have social security.
They have many NGOS for their issue.
Various schemes, allowance, insurance from the government-
Both at center and state.
Though lawyers attend hearing for the people, for the government.
Hiding their pain which speaks for itself.
Still their agony is unheard-
By the people, by the Government, by the temple of Justices.
Covid & lockdown made it worst.
When there is no infrastructure in the court-
Work from home is as illusory as golden bowl.
The agony of the first generation lawyers-
Higher than you can imagine.
More internship, opportunities if not come to them-
None will join in future.
No young star will come to showcase their talent.
Everyone needs a lawyer.
Be it I.T company, start up or private firm-
Society needs brother-in-arm.
lawyers are none other than soldiers.
They fought in the battle field,
We battle in the every field,
Even battle for them.
As the social engineer we build bridges-
To connect people with justice.
As the social doctor we try to cure all the social evils.
When there is no way,
There is a clear dead end.
We find the way.
We will find the way.
Today, tomorrow and always.
