By James CoganThe Times of England-India editionApril 8, 2018When my daughter first asked me about her dream job in the IT sector, I told her that it’s an exciting one but that it was not what she had in mind.
Then she asked me, ‘I want to be a lawyer, can I go there?’
I told them to go to a law school in Delhi and I would teach her what I learned.
She went to the law school, and after a year, I got an invitation to join the Delhi Law Society (DLSS).
I did that, and my wife and I had a daughter, so I had to leave for the United States in September 2018.
I have never been to India.
I still do not.
I was lucky, because I was able to go in a group, with two lawyers and one ailing, and they all had the same dream: They wanted to work in India.
They got jobs in the local IT firms, like a few years ago.
But this is the second time in their lives they want to leave.
My daughter is a first-year law student in Delhi, and the first-term professor of English in the state, and we had a couple of children together.
One of the children is a student in the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur.
My wife and her husband are still in India, and she wanted to pursue her dream in Delhi.
I am not going to give her up.
But there is no way I can help her.
