Advocates in lower courts can shed their coats this summer

News: Advocates in the lower courts, during the summer, can do away with their black coats.

Male advocates can, instead, sport white shirts, black ties and grey/black pants while appearing in court. Their female counterparts can don either sarees or long skirts (white or black or any subdued colour without prints) or churidars or salwar-kurtas with or without dupattas. The dupattas, if worn, must be of black or white hue. But collar bands are compulsory for both male and female lawyers.

However, the new dress code is applicable only for lower courts and not the High Court and the Supreme Court. It will also be in vogue only during the months of March, April and May. Once the summer ends, advocates will have to pull the black coats out of their wardrobes.

A Star of Karnataka

You would be forgiven for thinking that I’m talking about celluloid stars. Hardly. The literary firmament of the Kannada language includes many doyens including, hold your breath, a German born missionary!

A statue in the honour of Rev. Fr. Ferdinand Kittel is enclosed in a well maintained ( but fraying at the edges, methinks!) park at a pivotal point on M.G Road, called the Ferdinand Kittel Circle.
