Yesterday, I received a brilliant email in appreciation of my book. I have quoted the letter below as it is without editing :
I am Advocate Prachi Gupta, 2015 law graduate, learning the nuanses of practicing at Delhi High Court. I was buying a Bare Act when I found your novel Tomato Soup Vol.2 with the seller and the Prefaces were so amusing that I bought it then and there.
Although I could not find Vol.1 but I have asked the seller guy to get it for me if he could, by some ways.
Honestly, I love these short snippets that happen in courts on a day to day basis and I too have inherited the “Pata hai aaj court me kya hua…!” genes from my dad who is a Sessions Judge, in Delhi Distt. Courts. Thus the lamas talking about the wiring of judges and lawyers was on point and much relatable.
The incident of a lawyer sleeping for courts been closed for 15 years was just bang on, sir!!!!
I am of no stature to review the book written by a lawyer of such a high standing, but I could not stop myself from appreciating your work sir. I hope someday I ll also be able to see my transition from an Advocate to Lawyer to Senior Advocate :D.
Barring few spelling mistakes, the book is a must read and really looking forward to “Ek tha tiger, ek thi Cow”. Aah! The counter FIRs and compromises and quashings.
I hope that Tomato Soup series does get a publisher for it to rock the stacks of Courts, Bar rooms and cafeterias. Best wishes sir. May the force be with you 🙂
PRACHI GUPTA, Advocate
This was great.
