It has often been said that a society functions well only when true justice is given to all sections of society where no one ever forfeits their rights. In the era where very few people have the time to listen and guide people on the right path, especially in the legal area, it is extremely heartening to come across people like Mr Vishal Garg who have taken up the path of advocacy to guide people and ensure they get justice.
Answers to a few queries of ours
What made you step into the domain you are in now?
Initially, I wanted to become a chartered accountant and therefore I opted for the commerce stream in my 11th Standard. After I passed my 12th standard, my father forced to prepare for civil services to become an IAS officer since he is a retired civil servant.
Though I never wanted to enter the civil services, I prepared for the same half-heartedly due to family pressure.
This did have one benefit. While preparing for the civil services exams, I became a vicarious reader of many newspapers and magazines. While reading newspapers every day, I came across various burning issues in the society which were severely affecting women, the poor and other disadvantaged groups in the country. This made me feel that I should help to bring justice for these disadvantaged groups .
This was the reason for my dream of opting for the domain of advocacy.
