It was whilst pursuing his legal studies that Kabir came to see the dichotomy between what was in the books and what he saw in society. “Through this realisation, I had found my calling”, he says. As an advocate with the HRLN Delhi unit, Kabir’ hopes to use law as a tool to further human rights in places it can be used and also at places it ordinarily cannot be; Environment, Criminal, Constitutional, Land Acquisition, Labour, et al. Representing a family of five who were victims of brutal caste-based violence was a major highlight in Kabir’s career as a Supreme Court Advocate. If not a lawyer’ Kabir would have chosen the politics. “It is the most direct way of bringing about social change” he says.
