About Smallest Stature Lawyer
Harwinder Kaur wanted to be a flight attendant since childhood, but her dream could not be realized due to her small height.
Just imagine, how every dwarf person is ridiculed for being a dwarf! Why our society is so judgmental and criticizes each other on such grounds which are not even controllable?
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 things she was not able to enjoy and experience in her school, she got in her college life.
Ruby’s 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. Eventually, Harwinder Kaur abandoned her dream of becoming a spiritual worker. People started giving her a lot of love on social media; that gave her courage to move forward. However, many times there has been a lot of slander on social media, but Harwinder Kaur has started to ignore them.
Ruby had 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. Harwinder’s mother Sukhdeep Kaur is a homemaker while her father Shamsher Singh is an ASI at the Phillip traffic police. However, Harwinder Kaur completed her LLB last year and was awarded a client certificate and client license on November 23, 2020, by Bar Counseling in Punjab and Haryana.
Don’t you think that little people must be given a little power to make a huge difference in our society?
