We are back again, with an inspiring and exciting story of a lawyer Harwinder Kaur who also gets referred to as the Ruby of the Jalandhar Court in Punjab.
Even in today’s time, dwarf people are made fun of. They face the brunt of derogatory jokes. Don’t you think that it is insensitive to ridicule someone on the basis of their physical disability?
Harwinder is 24 years old and is a resident of Rammandi in Jalandhar. Harwinder whose height ranges around 3 ft 11 inches and may have confronted several discriminations, holds the title of Youngest Attorney in India.
In her case, Harwinder Kaur must have listened to the insults during her childhood, but today the same people give an example of her ability. She is famously recognized as “Smallest Stature Lawyer of India.”
About Smallest Stature Lawyer, Harwinder Kaur
Harwinder Kaur wanted to be a flight attendant since childhood, but her dream could not be realized due to her small height.
She was in Grade IV when she noticed that her body was not growing normally. With this came a lot of ridicule and exploitation. Harwinder started skipping school when she moved to higher classes and spent most of her days at home.
Life took a positive change for Harwinder when she decided to face the world and took admission in the KCL Institute of Laws, Jalandhar. The experiences which she could not enjoy and experience in her school life and childhood, she got in her college life.
Ruby’s(Harwinder) family members were concerned about the slow growth of her height and consulted many doctors, tried various ways from medication to meditation to solve this problem but all went in vain. Harwinder’s mother Sukhdeep Kaur is a homemaker while her father Shamsher Singh is an ASI (Assistant Sub Inspector) in Punjab Police.
By and By, people started giving her a lot of love on social media; that gave her courage to move forward. However, many times there has been also a lot of slander on social media, but Harwinder Kaur ignores those baseless comments in a classy manner.
She decided that after her 12th standard she would enter into to establish a legal profession to create a separate identity. So in this direction, she graduated and became a lawyer. She completed her LLB last year and was awarded the required certificate and license for an attorney, on November 23, 2020, by Bar Counseling in Punjab.
Considering Harwinder’s inspiring story and many unheard one’s like hers, don’t you think that people must be given a little more power and to make a huge difference in our society?
India’s smallest stature lawyer has always faced scornful, mocking, and disparaging comments. She has been always criticized for her height. But she is a real inspiration that if a person has a desire to do and accomplish his/her goals, then height, complexion, or any other factor becomes redundant.
The dwarf people might be compelled to hear, that what kind of a human that particular individual is. I would like to ask what kind of people you are? Who gave you the right to talk absurd and ill of anyone?
The Pondering Thought
Today, when Harwinder Kaur has been recognized as “India’s Smallest Stature Lawyer”, she can witness the changing colors of those people who once were giving her scornful looks. She can very well witness those sly remarks from those judgmental people turning into compliments and good words. Irony, right?
You’re a dwarf? A burst of loud laughter is audible! You are a small kid, go and play with your little friends and what not. These kinds of comments sound so heart-breaking. Every dwarf person is forced to receive such comments from people with low self-regard.
Why our society is fault-finding and critical? How their perception of something or someone changes all of sudden?
