This book is a fictionalised account of young Indian girls struggles to become a lawyer. It is a light-hearted but very real account of the problems she encountered. '...The interview day finally arrived. Ayesha felt she had hardly slept a wink. She was greeted by a warm friendly lady. She seemed warm. Ayesha thought to herself. Ayesha had always prided herself on being able to separate the wheat from the chaff but occasionally there would be someone who would slip through her usually sound judgment net. 'Would you like a cup of tea' the lady enquired in an animated fashion. 'Yes please', said Ayesha. The lady disappeared into a small nearby kitchen whilst Ayesha waited for her to return. 'So you want to be a lawyer,' the lady asked in a gentle tone, handing Ayesha a plate of biscuits simultaneously. 'Yes', said Ayesha, 'I'm not sure what the agency has told you. I have a training contract due to start in a year's time and am basically looking to fill the year. I want to be completely upfront with you. 'Yes, I know,' the lady replied, 'I thought of being a lawyer once but then circumstances meant I was steered into a different direction. It is a very honourable profession. I have read how hard it is to get a training contract. I have heard there are too many law students coming out of law school and just not enough places in law firms. You are very lucky to get a training contract.' 'Yes,' I guess I am', Ayesha replied. The lady was obviously unaware of all that Ayesha had been through to get to this point.'
