In the chambers of the High Court, a fateful encounter took place that would
forever change the life of one man. Today, among the sea of lawyers and
dignitaries, a familiar face caught the eye of a curious onlooker. It was the
face of a dear friend, but one transformed by an unexpected sartorial choice �
he stood tall, donning a traditional dhoti and a dignified coat, a stark
departure from his usual legal attire.
The reunion was a joyous one, as they hadn't seen each other in what felt like
an eternity. Intrigued by the radical change in his friend's appearance, the
curious observer inquired about the reason behind this transformation. His
friend's response was both poignant and profound.
He revealed that he had achieved considerable success as an advocate, earning a
substantial amount of money throughout his career. Yet, despite his
achievements, he found himself yearning for something more, something intangible
� inner peace.
It was during one of his cases that he had to travel to a remote village. There,
he witnessed the grim realities of life in an underprivileged area � a village
devoid of proper medical facilities, where many lives were lost untimely due to
the lack of a hospital. The sight that shook him to his core was that of an
elderly woman who had suffered unimaginable losses. The cruel clutches of the
pandemic had snatched away her son, daughter-in-law, and her only grandson. Her
husband had already passed away, leaving her utterly bereft.
This heart-wrenching encounter left an indelible mark on his soul, and he knew
that he couldn't stand idle in the face of such suffering. Driven by a newfound
purpose, he made a solemn promise to himself and to the old lady � he vowed to
build a hospital in that very area, to bring hope and healing to the lives of
The turning point in his life came when he visited a temple and sought guidance
from the divine. It was there that he pledged his commitment to the cause, and
from that moment on, he resolved to wear the dhoti and coat as a reminder of his
promise. The simple attire symbolized his unbreakable bond to the promise he
made to the old lady.
Reflecting on his journey as an advocate, he realized that the principles he had
learned in the world of law were deeply intertwined with the values of empathy,
compassion, and responsibility. If he could remember every detail of his
promises to clients in the legal realm, how could he forget a promise so close
to his heart, a promise that held the potential to change lives?
From that day forth, he embraced his new form, the dhoti and coat serving as a
constant reminder of the commitment he made to the villagers, the old lady, and
himself. His mission became a beacon of hope, a testament to the power of
compassion and the potential to make a difference beyond the confines of the
And so, the man who once wore the robes of an advocate found a higher calling,
donning the dhoti and coat as symbols of a deeper purpose. With unwavering
determination, he set forth on a journey to build a hospital, healing not just
bodies but also hearts, guided by the virtues he learned through his career in
advocacy � justice, integrity, and the profound impact of keeping one's word.
