It seems that the creative ad can not be grasped by everyone.
I don’t understand what the Indore Law Institute is trying to prove here. both characters were good lawyers: they made mistakes in their careers, but in the end they rectified them and again proved their responsibility. So what is this comparison? cool matlab banne ke liye kuch bhi????
