2017 has been a year of shock and sadness. Rising political tension across the globe, US presidential election result, Trump’s travel ban from selected Muslim countries, multiple terrorist attacks in major cities, Nepalese earthquake, Brexit, Rohingya ethnic cleansing by Myanmar and Aung San Suki’s blatant silence to the atrocities, and the resignation of the Chief Justice SK Sinha have marked the headlines all year round.
We are living in turbulent times. And as we look back, we see that there was little to rejoice about.
We, at Vertex Chambers, do not want to kickstart 2018 on a sad note. As lawyers, problems and complexities are our constant companions and we also realise that life is short. In God’s grand scheme of things, despair and disappointment should not- and dare we say, must not- dictate our lives for it would be a travesty of our very existence.
With the above in mind, we have taken the task of entertaining you all by producing a cartoon each month in 2018 where we will mock ourselves (that is, the lawyers). It is all about pure humour and absolutely no intention of degrading the legal profession. We all know that a good lawyer joke is a thing of beauty which brings joy forever.
So, please join us in laughter in 2018.
Happy New Year!
