BLIND DELHI LAWYERS EARN SENIOR TAG

When a judge refused to accept a blind man attesting a will as a witness in a case he was pleading, S K Rungta argued that the law didn't disqualify a blind person from being a witness. Had that been the case, a blind person couldn't have practised law, as a lawyer has to identify the clients on accepting the brief, he said.

Rungta got his point across. That was eight years ago.

Recently, the Delhi High Court judges voted to designate the 57-year-old blind advocate a 'senior' - a first for the country.

The senior tag is considered an honour and recognition of a lawyer's understanding of law. Rungta can also charge a higher fee, but that's unlikely. He doesn't charge blind clients and most of the others are from the weaker sections.

When he started out in 1982, the biggest challenge was to win the confidence of clients.
