Alumni Diaries: A Talk with Rohit Manan (Batch of 2008)

Alma Mater, a second home as also referred by a lot of people; gets everyone nostalgic. On 28th March 2018, one such moment was for Mr. Rohit Manan, Adv. practicing at the Tiz Hazari Courts and High Court, Delhi. Mr. Manan is also commissioned in the Territorial Army.

The talk was held in the Seminar Hall along with a power-point presentation, whereby Mr. Manan at the very outset asked students to be very clear with what they wish to aspire for in life. The concept of rat race will not help. Not everyone is crafted with the same skill set, and the sooner the students figure it out, the more beneficial it would be.

Further elucidating upon the fact that no comparison should ever be made by students especially when it comes to deciding a possible career or sitting for placements. The talk began with Mr. Manan highlighting the various options available with a law graduate, right after college. Whether one wants to take up academics, and pursue LLM or being a part of the forces by joining as a JAG Officer, he elaborated it all.

He had divided the entire tenure at AIL into 3 phases:
·         Life before AIL
·         Life during AIL
·         Life after AIL

Having sought admission into the college, students ought to have a strong feeling of Bon Home & Comradery. As it would strengthen the bond between the students, and the alumnus; networking being a key aspect of the legal profession.

Since, he himself was in litigation, Mr. Manan informed the audience about the importance and vital usage of procedural law. Be it the Code of Criminal Procedure or Code of Civil Procedure, one ought to be thorough with the basics.

All in all, it was an informative talk, having an alumni coming and clearing the mind of the students with his own personal experiences. Making “figuring out” life post college, a bit easier for the students.

Drug addiction is a problem that is increasing in our society. Today there is an ever increasing tendency amongst the youth for trying something new or doing something that their friends are doing. This often takes them to the path which leads them either on the doorstep of depression or to serious health problems.
Drug addiction can terribly hinder and restraint us from accomplishing our goals and dreams in life. People sometimes feel that they are too bright, too powerful, and too formidable to control to become addictive. Addiction can trap anyone. It can cause harm to one's body and also lead to problems in the family. Delinquent behaviour in the society is also another consequence. The sooner people seek help for drug addiction problems, the more chances they have of gaining control of their lives. However, abstinence is the safest way to live a longer and healthier life.
As part of the Anti-Drug Drive, an initiative of the Hon’ble Capt. Amarinder Sing…
