    Nelson Mandela says “Where globalization means, as it so often does, that the rich and powerful now have new means to further enrich and empower themselves at the cost of the poorer and weaker, we have a responsibility to protest in the name of universal freedom!” and is undoubtedly true.  Technological, political or economical, Globalization has turned the tables upside down and successfully brought a revolution in international trade with increasing participation and involvement of other countries, states and cities with greater access to domestic economies. This decade served as a mini-revolution in the legal service sector focusing on providing the quality legal service and this made an impact on the corporate legal arena the most. Services like project financing, environmental protection, intellectual property protection, competition law, the infrastructure contract, corporate taxation, corporate governance, and investment law were practically obscured in the 90s but suddenly has taken a vow and is continuously changing the way legal services were served before. Previously, law firms that were capable of managing these services were limited. As globalization as a concept is not new to us but in the purview of legal services, the momentum is now achieved through the excellent growth of the Internet, updated automation of legal processes, extraordinary developments in data security and budding technology practice tools. It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that the need for professional service is now tremendously important in the legal service sector.   Some restrictions are applied as follows:   Section11 of the companies Act, 1956 states that a partnership or any form of association with more than 20 members if not registered as a company shall be an unlawful assembly. The regulatory and legal system in India has set a limiting size of the legal establishment. As per the combined Sections of24, 29, and 33 of Advocates Act, the artificial body cannot act as a lawyer in India only a natural person can practice law. As stipulated in the Bar Council of India Rules, 1975 in chapter III Rule I, advocates cannot enter into a partnership or any other arrangement for sharing remuneration with just any person or legal practitioner who is not an advocate by law. Lawyers don’t have the right to enter in co-operation with non-lawyers in India.   Opening up of the legal services sector, globalization, however, is going to lead to a flow of expertise in this sector where local firms and lawyers are deficiently delivering services. Accepting the changes is the only way through. No doubt, globalization will attract over-population and lead to a lack of employment, but it will actively attract services to the needy without a fail!

      Gender diversity has existed throughout history all over the world. One of the most fundamental aspects of a human’s identity, gender highly influences everyone. Where this crucial aspect of self is narrowly defined and rigidly enforced, individuals who exist outside of its norms face innumerable challenges every day. Even those who vary only slightly from norms can become targets of disapproval, discrimination, and violence. The terms “sex” and “gender” are used interchangeably by the people. But, while connecting the dots, the two terms turn out to be not equivalent. Generally, we assign a newborn’s sex as either male or female based on the baby’s genitals. We presume the child’s gender when the sex is assigned. Nevertheless, while gender begins with the assignment of the sex depending on the genitals, it just doesn’t end here. A person’s gender a complex interrelationship between three dimensions: The Body: Our body, our experience of our own body, how society genders bodies, and how others interact with us based on our body plays a very important role in deciding the gender. The Identity: The name we use to convey our gender based on our deeply held, internal sense of self. Identities typically fall into binary as a man or a woman, Non-binary as Gender-queer or gender-fluid and ungendered as Agender or genderless categories; the meaning associated with a particular identity can vary among individuals. A person’s Gender identity can correspond to or differ from the sex they were assigned at birth. The Society: How we present our gender in the world and how individuals, society, culture, and community perceive, interact with, and try to shape our gender. Social gender includes gender roles and expectations which tells how the society uses those, to enforce conformity to current gender norms. Another term Gender congruence came into existence when the feeling of harmony in own gender arose. A person can seek harmony in many ways. Some of the ways are: Social congruence measures: Changes of social identifiers depending upon the gender such as clothing, hairstyle, gender identity, name and/or pronouns is the main congruence. Hormonal congruence measures: The use of medical approaches such as hormone “blockers” or hormone therapy to promote physical, mental, and/or emotional alignment.Surgical congruence measures: The addition, removal, or modification of gender-related physical traits. Legal congruence measures: Changing identification documents such as one’s birth certificate, driver’s license, or passport. We can develop a greater acceptance for all through a thoughtful consideration of the uniqueness and validation of every person’s experience of self. Not only this will create greater inclusion for individuals who challenge the norms of gender but also will create space for all individuals to fully explore and express who they originally are from inside.

    Guardianship Act in India The Guardians and Wards Act was made in 1890. It became the only non-religious universal law regarding the guardianship of a child and was applicable in all parts of India except the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This law is particularly outlined for Parsis, Muslims, Christians, and Jews as their personal laws don't allow for full adoption. It is applicable to all children regardless of race or creed.  According to this act, a minor is any person who has not completed 18 years of age. The court or the authority has the right to decide the guardian of a minor by appointing one guardian or removing another as a guardian. No order will be passed without an application. Applications should contain all possible information about the child and guardian and reasons for guardianship. Once the court admits the application into court, then the court will set a date for the hearing. The court will hear evidence before making a decision. A minor and his property may have more than one guardian. The court must work in the interest of the minor, taking into consideration the age, sex, religion, character of the guardian, the death of the parents, the relation of the child to the guardian, etc. The minor's preference may be taken into consideration. In appointments made by the Guardianship Tribunal, a guardian can be a private person that is a family member, a friend or unpaid carer of the person with a disability. If there is no private person available or willing to act as guardian, or where there is conflict about legal decisions relating to the person under guardianship, then the tribunal will appoint the Public Guardian. The Public Guardian is only appointed as the 'guardian of last resort'. The Public Guardian may also be appointed jointly with a private guardian but only with different functions. A guardian can also be appointed by a legal process known as enduring guardianship. An enduring guardianship appointment is a legal document where you nominate someone to make health and welfare decisions for you, for example where you live and the health care you receive. The duties of a guardian are to protect the welfare and safety of the person under guardianship and to attend the financial needs of the individual, using his/her assets wisely. To provide for the everyday basic needs and safety is the major duty of the guardian.

    Gender equality also known as sexual equality, that is to give equal opportunities and equal, fair and treatment to all the human beings irrespective of the gender. The belief that one gender is intrinsically superior to another should be put to rest. Equal status should be provided to the humans depending on their caliber and not on other basis. Gender discriminations is also punishable and is considered to be an offence of the highest order.Gender discrimination mainly fosters various types of sexual violence and hence should not be practiced. Both men and women should rise above the limitations set by rigid gender notes, by stereotypes and prejudices and maintain gender neutrality. UNICEF says gender equality "means that women and men, and girls and boys, enjoy the same rights, resources, opportunities and protections. It does not require that girls and boys, or women and men, be the same, or that they be treated exactly alike."Sexism can affect any one, but it majorly affects the women and girls; hence to achieve the goal of gender equality harmful practices like human trafficking, femicide, sexual abuse and oppression tactics should be eliminated.Gender equality can be maintained efficiently on when the root problems causing differences are addressed effectively. Gender integration should be ensured to all and followed in order to maintain the equal status of all the genders.

    Taxes are of two types. Direct tax is the tax that you pay directly pay to the Government like Income Tax and Indirect Tax is the tax you pay indirectly to the Government on the purchase of any good or commodities for example VAT and service tax. Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an indirect tax that is levied upon goods and services bought by customers. It has been replaced by all the other types of indirect taxes and eliminates their need. This one single indirect tax not only makes it convenient for the government to collect tax, but also makes it convenient for the tax payer. It also ensures much better transparency and therefore reduces the scope and opportunities for corruption. GST can also be classified as Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) and State Goods and Services Tax (SGST).   GST Slab rates are given as follows: 0% rate: Food grains used by common people. 5% Rate: Items of mass consumption including essential commodities will have low tax incidence. 12% and 18 % Rate:  Two standard rates had been finalized as 12% and 18%. 28% Rate : White goods like Air conditioners, washing machines, refrigerators, soaps and shampoos etc. that were taxed at 30-31% are now taxed at 28%. Demerit goods like tobacco, tobacco products, pan masala, aerated drinks and luxury cars shall be charged at the highest rate of 28%. An additional cess on some luxury goods shall also be imposed.  Services that were earlier taxed at 15% are taxed at a higher rate of GST at 18%.
