My Life, My Profession shares H. S. Gururaja Rao’s story, tracing his life from his childhood in Hyderabad to the present. In his explorations of his past, he recalls that as a constitutional lawyer, he made history when he single-handedly fought successfully to defend the constitutionality of the rules prescribing residential qualifications for employment in the state civil services. Rao has continued his contribution to constitutional law and service jurisprudence with a storied role in the legal profession. In his memoir, he tells how when he was a student, his leadership qualities were recognized and how, thereafter, he rose to become one of the most influential advocates within India’s legal fraternity. Over the years, he has become a recognized expert on Kashmir.
