<> All such News of criticality, from the societal point of view, and the larger public interest , ought not to be simply  glossed over but deserve to be made a conscious note of for own  enlightenment  and motivation, and thinking and action on similar lines. Unlike any other of a routinely mundane nature one is accustomed to read day-in and day-out.

Any other profession e.g. CA being governed by its own so-called code of ‘conduct’ (‘ethics’ !) is a different ‘kettlle of fish’, hence would be governed, and accordingly be treated (cooked!) differently.

In a different vein, may be, as the advocate-writer himself, in his worldly wisdom, once made me realise, “…One may have a different perception or perspective on…”
