Letters to the Editor - The Hindu - July 3, 2004 - Commending the brave school-girls.

Necessity is the mother of innovation. When your rights to higher education are at stake with the admissions issue being under litigation and the lawyers are at strike, what will you do? Appear pro se to argue your own case before the respected Judge? Well, that is what two brave girls did. The press in Tamilnadu did a good job in adequately publicizing this issue. I, on my part, sent this letter to the editor of The Hindu. Though being the second letter (the first one was published in 1992) to appear on print, this would set-off a chain of other letters to come.

Published in The Hindu, National Edition, dated July 3, 2004.

Sir, — As appearing pro se is not a common practice in the courts, it was apt that the girls got prominent coverage in the media.
