I got introduced to this discipline less than four years back and during this short span of time, I have probably come across numerous laws and instances when I felt that law was anything but a matter of logic! Shortcomings that have not been attended to, have created havoc in so many lives. I wonder how such legislations are even approved by the Parliament!
