Legal Drama series like Boston Legal and not only have a great popularity among common masses, but a cult following among the lawyers, especially the budding ones. Students in law schools across the world have been following these television series as religiously as their educational curriculum. And the reasons are obvious – not only these shows are fun to watch but also lend an insight into the practical and global workings of the legal world.
While there exists a certain suave in the way James Spader and Harvey Specter close their cases in courts, there is also a lingering conscience that motivates the lawyer in them. And then of course, you have the head strong and veteran Denny Crane with his famous analogy for ‘end of discussion’- “Denny Crane”.
The sitcoms have a global fan following and in India, the spokesperson of a leading law school Alliance School of Law said that the students are often seen discussing the cases that the sitcoms deal with. Sometimes, they are too impressed by the hair breadth escapes of the heroes while the other times they wish it could be a little more realistic.
And in order to let the students ingrain an unconventional and different streak in to their practice, Alliance School of Law often conducts mock court sessions where the to-be-lawyers discuss cases from the television series. They try to adjust these cases according to the Indian legal structure and brain storm so as to find different angles. This practice has led a plethora of meaningful discussions with enriching ideas from the students and faculty, all alike.

Branding acts as a way of communicating with your customers. Without expensive advertising, you can deliver a message through your well-designed brand.
In this consumer environment, I, Madhukar angur really agrees with the fact that the brands play a critical role. When consumers first started purchasing more food and raising less themselves, they purchased items from a bulk bin. They had no information about what ingredients the products contained, how safe they were, and how they would perform. Branding created the protection that consumers demanded.
A brand must
- Invent its own style of communication
- Prove its difference (why is this product better than competitor)
- Regularly invest in communications
Regardless of your brand mission, identifying and gaining the devotion of your target audience is the necessary means to reaching your brand objectives.

• 90 – 109 – Normal or average intelligence
• 80 – 89 – Dullness
• 70 – 79 – Borderline deficiency

• Exercise- Exercise is known to stimulate brain cell growth.
• Sleep Optimization – A proper 8 hour sleep should be taken .
• Do practice tests-Logic puzzles such as Sudoku are the cherry on the cake when it comes to exercising the brain. While there is no substantive evidence that brain teasers actually improve intellect, it is well proven that mental challenges help hone your sharpness. Jigsaw puzzles help engage the brain and encourage the retention of information about shapes and colors

Management is the process of reaching organizational goals by working with and through people and other organizational resources.
The 4 basic management functions that make up the management process are described in the following sections:
A two-year study by workplace think-tank the Work Foundation suggests that the most effective leaders think and act systemically, seeing the whole picture rather than compartmentalising. They see people as the sole route to performance and are deeply people and relationship centred rather than just people oriented. Moreover, they are self-confident without being arrogant.
“Outstanding leaders focus on people, attitudes and engagement, co-creating vision and strategy. Instead of one-to-one meetings centred on tasks, they seek to understand people and their motives,” she explained.
“Instead of developing others through training and advice, they do this through challenge and support. They manage performance holistically, attending to the mood and behaviour of their people as well as organisational objectives. And instead of seeing people as one of many priorities, they put the emphasis on people issues first.
