HUMOUR: Ancestral lawyering ...

Believe it or not, my ancestors were Mongols. In fact, they were a fairly nasty crowd who conquered central Asia but couldn't quite conquer India until they inter-married with Turks and Persians. By that time, they had become bastardised into another race known as "Mughals".

Anyway, we Mughals have law in the blood. My grand father was a criminal barrister in Delhi. But I now learn a movie is being made about one of my earlier ancestors and his exploits in and out of the courtroom.

Check him out below.

I'm just glad he never took up teaching!
