Advocate Haresh A. Raichura, Supreme Court of India, New Delhi.
In 1982, while practicing in District Court Junagadh, he was standing before a cupboard in library and he was reading a Justice P N Bhagwati Judgement. Just then an idea came. If he works hard in district court, his work can benefit only one or two persons. But if he works hard in Supreme Court, it can benefit thousands of litigants. This is how a dream began. In 1990, after 8 years, he was practising in Supreme Court.
