I know Kalpesh from the time he was working in IIMA as academic associate. Right from that time, I noticed that he was a fairly committed to common good, and had been working hard in this regard. One notable endeavor in this regard is his attempt to make people understand the importance and modalities of Right to Information Act. He organized numerous seminars educating people on the benefits of the law. I understand that the purpose of ProBono is to educate people on the reasons behind why laws are enacted and how society is shaped based on such laws. This is definitely a commendable and much needed effort. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to wish Kalpesh the very best in making this a success. I have no doubt in my mind that we will be talking about this initiative in years to come.

Glad to learn about ProBono India- indeed a project with potential to emerge as a change agent- in an increasingly globalized India where there are many to talk, yet few to work, for the underprivileged.Also, hope to experience a take-off for dream project of my pro bono brother lawyers to firmament of human rights advocacy vis-à-vis access to justice. Last but not least, the way cluster of areas are underscored to bring in legal aid, legal awareness, pro bono legal network and legal academics together deserves the credit to attain percolation of justice to grass roots as a teleological end of this project.

Wish great advancement of these great causes involved herein “to wipe every tear from every eye”, expressed by Nehru, in course of his address to ‘Midnight’s Children’ (Rushdie) while the same still appears grandeur for those of otherwise incredible India.
