Congratulating a great human being!

What makes a genuinely great person? One may wonder, and find so many answers, but the core criterion remains: how he treats his subordinates. One person who has had a profound impact on my life is Mr. Saurabh Ajay Gupta, who had found his own place in my blog earlier. One has to meet him to fully comprehend why I have so many words of praise for this man.

Recently, he was appointed as the Additional Advocate General of Chattisgarh, after he held the position of the Additional Advocate General of Punjab from 2011 to 2017. This post is primarily congratulatory towards his new achievement. As a man who tirelessly worked without resting on his laurels, this seems like a natural progression with many more laurels to come in the future.

I have been fortunate enough to be an intern for this great man, and I have had the opportunity to learn a lot from him. This learning process was not only how to be a good lawyer, but how to be a good human being. A month of an internship has given me a lifetime of learning and a bond so strong, it will outlast any professional relationship there can be.

For a lawyer of his calibre, I am underqualified to congratulate, but I hope wishing well never required fulfilment of criteria. This deserved its own blog post because it was a personal moment of happiness for me, seeing him fly high without limits. Like a guardian, he has been the guiding light for me through the legal profession. Even after all these achievements, and having represented clients with the highest profiles who make national headlines, I still find him to be the same as he was when I first met him five years ago: the humble, witty and polite man who does not hesitate to share knowledge and build people.

I am sure that the Chattisgarh government will be pleased to have taken such a wonderful decision and will place confidence in him for years to come. The things that are required from a lawyer are the exact things required to be a good human being — integrity, honesty, an unassailable spirit for justice and of course, intellect. It is the perfect combination of these four qualities that make him unique, which I am sure has been one of the reasons the Chattisgarh government chose him for the job.

To new beginnings and new laurels, congratulations, sir!
