PERSONAL STATEMENT ‘The task of modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.’ -C.S. Lewis. I am presently undertaking my dual graduate degree of B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) in Constitutional Law, from Institute of Law, Nirma University, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India (ILNU). I got enrolled in the 5 years’ integrated professional law course after completing my High School in Humanities Stream with History, Political Science, Sociology and Languages. The integration of Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Legum Baccalaureus (LL.B.) in India is a post globalization marvel. ILNU presented me with 15 non-legal modules in Humanities and Social Sciences, which is quite a unique feature in my legal academic quest, as no other university in nation-state offers so many modules in ten semesters. The award of degree certificate is on acknowledgement of 271 credits grounded on 58 credit based modules. My forté has always been normative analysis of any scientific or theoretical enquiry. I have a respectable hold on political theory, philosophy and thought. The real asset of my temperament is inter-disciplinary approach and due regard to historical development and gendered reasoning. My enthrallment in juridical studies has streamed from Constitutional Law. Appreciation and admiration towards Legal Theory is culmination of readings in political theory and sociology. I deciphered modalities of ‘Jurisprudence’ by the academic discipline, viz., ‘Sociology of Law’. Also, ‘principles of statutory interpretations’ and ‘natural justice’ in Administrative Law are among my areas of interest. The comparative approach in common law countries, especially England, US, Australia and India is one of my strengths. I am a progeny of experimental Indian education system. The fault lies in higher education in India with regard to its quality. Attention should be paid to the teaching profession for the pedagogical cure of the Indian education structure. Hence, the need for a commitment to grow and learn advanced nuances, from younger as well as from senior generations. This is possible only if I regard my whole life bound in university campus, inside or outside the classroom. Research interests include, particularly pragmatics in law and trends in judicial process. My readings centre round in pursuit of indulgence in ‘justice’ as an idea and concept. This seed was sowed in my mind when I was 16 years old and for the first time read about theory of justice by John Rawls in a high school textbook. I found similarity between ‘difference principle’ and ‘talisman’ of Gandhi printed on cover page of the political theory book. The academic sub-discipline, ‘Sociology of Law’, where my extensive reading of Roscoe Pound, Roger Cottrell and Nicholas Timasheff, prepared me for legal theory in a better way. Advancing module on ‘Justice’ was based on Prof. Michael Sandel’s book, “Justice, what’s the right thing to do.” I developed analytical and critical approach after scientifically reading Bentham and Mill from a utilitarian angle and Nozick from libertarian side. In an effort to sort the various epistemic doubts I meticulously read Spinoza, Hobbes, Locke, Machiavelli, Kant,
