Nanabhoy Ardeshir Palkhiwala, more fondly referred to as Nani, was a dedicated scholar, who overcame his stammering problem to become one of the most respected economists of India. It was at Government Law College in Bombay, that he discovered his talent in judiciary studies and he went on to fight several famous cases. The case of Kesavananda versus The State of Kerela was the high-point in his career as a lawyer. He was a strong advocate of the fundamental rights of an individual, and he saw to it that the amendment was accordingly made. Nani was also highly respected for his eloquence and his articulate nature. Later in his life, his memory weakened, and he passed away on December 11, 1982.
