Law school might seem a long way off to a high school student, but it’s never too early to begin preparing for a legal career. The passion to become a lawyer is in this energetic St. Columba’s School student, who is inspired by lawyer Ram Jethmalani.

Try to Improve.jpgAnhad reads a lot of legal case studies and follows many crime television series. “The money and the respect that this proffesion throws is what excites me the most. I want to become the country’s best lawyer,” he says.

Anhad is also inspired by his father’s works in Urdu, and is learning Spanish for the last three years. Not only academics, his interest in sports is commendable. For the past seven years in a row, he has been winning the silver medal in the 50 metres swimming race in his school. “This time I will secure a gold,” he says with a glint in his eyes.

As a Delhiite, he relishes the city’s street food and loves chicken tikkas in Old Delhi’s Chandi Chowk. He often visits Bengali Market with his mother Ambica Chaudhry, who is a school teacher, for golgappa’s.

Traffic jams and the rising levels of pollution annoy. Given an opportunity, he would try to create better public transport facility and improve healthcare services.

I would provide better transport facilities, reduce pollution levels and crime rate, curb curruption and give better healthcare facilities.
