Jai Bhim Inspires Youth to Do Law

A Shrawan wants to become a lawyer so he could bring justice to sexual abuse victims.
Many youngsters want to study law after watching Actor Suriya’s super-hit OTT film Jai Bhim in which he dons the role of a lawyer. 
At Perungulathur, outside Chennai,  A Shrawan, a commerce student who finished class XII recently has made up his mind to join a law college to pursue law. Though he liked law, it was only after he and his friends  watched the heart wrenching film together,  he decided law is his calling. He told tellmystory.in “I want to work to help the sexually abused get justice. Every now and then we see a hashtag for justice. I want to stop this. They are punished for no fault of them. I want to help them come out of it”.
Sharanya an MBA aspirant wants to turn marginalised communities employable by skilling them.

Not far way his friend Sharanya Sathyanarayanan a class XII student wants to become an MBA. She’s already working on an app to provide employment opportunity  for  the less privileged. After watching Jai Bhim she has decided that she would use her expertise to  uplift marginalised sections in the years to come, she says. 

Jai Bhim's real hero, Justice K Chandru (Retired) is happy many are inspired to use law as a weapon, fighting for the oppressed".
 Jai Bhim tells the story of a powerful  legal battle retired judge Justice K Chandru had waged as a lawyer 29 years ago to get justice to a tribal woman who’s husband died  of torture in police custody. 
Behind Justice Chandru’s office too the former judge says “a few students in class XII have decided to go to law school”. In Delhi, he adds a few  final year law  students specialising in corporate lawyering want to switch to become “litigation strategiests”.
Calling this a welcome “attitudinal change” the real hero of the film says “many are inspired to use law as a weapon, fighting  for the oppressed”. 
During his years as a lawyer the former Judge had taken up 16 cases of police atrocity and this experience he says helped  him later as a Judge to expedite  justice to 60 such cases including rights violations in prisons. He explains “What took 9 months to get justice for Parvathy when I was a lawyer, in my court it took just three weeks”.
