Dharu, who hails from the village of Sointra in Jodhpur district, Rajasthan, completed his intermediate exams in 2015 with the Rajasthan State Board. His father, a farmer, made around INR 50,000 a year to support a family of seven when Dharu joined us as a trainee. As the eldest sibling, Dharu had to shoulder some of the responsibility of earning for his family.
After training with the IDIA Rajasthan Chapter for one year, Dharu cracked CLAT and secured admission in National Law University, Jodhpur.
Dharu was awarded the Arodhum International Scholarship in 2016, which is awarded to students from rural areas who show great potential to be agents of change. Through Rajasthan Sampark Kendra (an online portal of the Rajasthan State Government), he has been helping people of his village with filing their complaints online. His internships include those with Shardul Amarchnad Mangaldas & Co., Bombay, AZB and Partners, Noida, L&L (formerly Luthra and Luthra) Partners, Delhi and Vidhi Centre For Legal Policy, Delhi.
Dharu wishes to pursue a career in litigation or become a judge so that he can bring justice to those who cannot afford legal counsel. Apart from being good in studies, Dharu is a gifted cricketer and an avid reader.
