A Junior lawyer (searching for a senior) need to ask himself, “What do I want.. Exactly?.Do I want to earn or do I want to learn?”
2 years ago, a law student, working as intern under a senior, in Sydney, complained that his senior was harsh and cruel. He did not pay but on the other hand, took work from him for many hours. Now and then he would ask him to go to do different tasks. He would not pay him conveyance charges. The junior had to bear these expanses from his own pocket. The work assigned to him was also mundane and boring.
After two years, the junior has now got a job directly under a Minister. Because the stern and hard training given to him by his senior paid him very well.
I am in touch of this junior since the day he got admission in his law course.
Perhaps, I want to remind you about how an iron object is shaped. First it is heated too much. Then it is hammered. And then shape of a sword emerges.
I think that perhaps those juniors are lucky whose seniors keep them in harsh conditions and ask them to do a lot of work and do not pay conveyance charges.
My senior Vasant Desai said, the juniors should be starved so that they open their wings and learn to fly ! I am grateful that he did not pay me anything when I was junior to him.🙏
