Thiruvananthapuram: Surendran (61) from Kakkad, Ernakulam District, Kerala, his daughter Ananya. Both have registered as advocates in the Ernakulam High Court on the same day.
Surendran told ‘Hindu Tamil Vektik’ about this:
My dream of becoming a lawyer has come true at the age of 61. When I was in class 10, my chemistry teacher pushed me to study law. Most of my classmates are doctors and lawyers. At a young age I was also impressed with the notion that lawyers are special. I was initially a college teacher. I then worked as a clerk in a co-operative bank. I retired from Aryankavu Cooperative Bank last year 2018.
Around the same time, my daughter joined law school. We have also retired. I joined the same college where my second daughter Ananya is studying so that I can fulfill my dream of becoming a lawyer. Now happy that both have registered as advocates on the same day. This has made everyone happy including my wife Radha Letchumi and elder daughter Amrita. When Ananya and I were enrolled as advocates, they also supported us. He said this.
