You and your team is doing great service to the humanity by engaging yourself in legal aid and start up platform to needy people. The constitutional dream of access to justice remained unrealised because intellectuals, departments of academic institutions, and those who are "well to do" did not discharge their obligation in spirit, enshrined in the fundamental duty part. Prof Upendra Baxi also insists that we need citizen animated with part III and Part IV of the Constitution. You and Gujarat Law University has taken the lead and we all are proud of you. Though legal aid is also given in various institutes, legal start up is an innovation. 
We all congratulate you and the team and wish you all the best.

I am happy to note that Pro Bono India initiative intends to build the gap between the law and society. The interaction between law and society is very much essential as law is a social functionary. Social interactions and initiates have influenced the law making process in India. The Nirbhaya Act, Amendment to Information Technology Act, Copyright Act have been result of law and society interaction in the recent past. In this regard I wish and hope that Pro Bono initiatives would add much required fuel for smoothing the effective functioning of law in the society.
