Dear Shri Brahmanyan,

Lawyers as a class have always had some "Nawabs" among them and their earnings have been astronomical, as compared to the cost of living in their respective eras. The luminaries of Mylapore were no exceptions and I remember having read a book by one of the native rulers of Vizianagarm (?) or some one else, in which he advises all the rich landlords of south not to engage in protracted legal battles for the sake of ego on a matter of small areas of property, etc., which only benefits the lawyer, neither the plaintiff nor the defendant.

Japan amongst the developed country fares well in term of litigations (lowest); US has the dubious distinction of being the highest. This I got to hear from late Nani Palkhivala.

Jinnah charged highest in the pre-independence India @ Rs 1500/per day. Motilal Nehru was also amongst the lawyers charging high fees.
Sound indigenous dispute resolution practices were wiped out with the advent of British reign.

Longer the litigation, better it is for lawyers.

A saying in tamil: it is better to fall at the feet of an adversary, than cajoling a witness.

Regards,
Swami
