It was a memorable evening when the winter was saying good-bye; the mellifluous spring was around with guffaw, fragrance and mirth. The roses were in full bloom. In such a pleasant moment, there did blossom the wisdom of a young precocious author. It was the early blossom of Brajesh Rajak's talent, who responding to the clarion call from himself, got elated and provided pabulum on the plater of frontispiece, called, ' JOIN THE BAR ', the book which is a tale about three law students of National Law School, Bangalore.
The perspicacious author is a student of the same National Law School. The publishers who coddle the young writers were none other than the Universal Law Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., who are well versed to prognosticate the success of the aspiring young authors. The book was released at Indian Law Institute, New Delhi, on February 11, 2011.
Former Minister for Law & Justice, Shanti Bhushan had very kindly consented to release the book, but for reasons beyond his control, he could not make it convenient for him to witness the occasion. Hence, in his absence, noted Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court, Padma Bhushan, P.P. Rao, released the book amid the tintinabulation of applause and clapping.
Rao besides applauding the dynamic effort of the young author showered plaudits on Universal Group for recognising and encouraging the young authors. It may be the reason that one of the directors of the publishing giants, Dr. Manish Arora, had himself set an example of publishing a book while he was around 20 years of age. Rao said that this way Universal Group is doing a yeoman's job.
Rao pointed out that most of the freedom fighters were lawyers, say for example, Mahatma Gandhi, Moti Lal Nehru, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Dr. Rajinder Prasad, Sardar Patel etc. who were true nationalists. He regretted that the legacy could not be retained and today the leadership is totally eclipsed with corruption and scams all around. Under the circumstances, he called upon the legal fraternity especially the young talented lawyers to raise themselves and bring out another renaissance of nationalism and healthy democracy in the country. Rao said that the process of the publication of legal books will help in providing stimuli and legal awareness to the society. He said youth like Brajesh Rajak are the role model for others. Rao pointed out that there may be great authors and research scholars but their wisdom and talent can not be recognised unless the publishers publish their work. That way Universal Group is not only engaged in business but also in the social work.
