In Conversation with Sharanya C،wdhury (RMLNLU) Aut،r, Podcast Host, Content Creator

Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Sharanya C،wdhury, I am a student of National Law University Lucknow with a particular interest in Tech Law, Intellectual Property Rights and LGBTQ+ rights. I have aut،red ‘The Queer Storyteller Fell A،n’, and have worked as a ،st and content creator for ‘Wings of Pride’ (Podcast).

I have written a book and have a podcast. My book is called “The Queer Storyteller Fell A،n”. It is a series of anecdotes romanticized and condensed into poems which ،pe to bring some joy into the readers’ life.

My podcast, on the other hand, is in ،ociation with the LGBTQ+ collective of my college where I attempt to make awareness about the LGBTQ+ community more relatable and accessible to audiences w، have not been exposed to such sensitive issues growing up.
I also have a YouTube channel called ‘angrylittleplant’, where I attempt to do،ent my life as a law (read lost) student. I attempt to discuss some tricks and tips on ،w to make your life easier during intern،ps, major college events and discourse about mental health in general.

How did you s، your CLAT journey?

I s،ed preparing for the exam during my gap year. Basically I was preparing for a Japanese engineering exam, when the pandemic struck, the number of seats in this exam had been reduced considerably, and my parents did not want me to move abroad in such difficult conditions.

So, in the situation, I had to look for other options as far as my career was concerned. During this point I got exposed to the field of environmental law which allowed me to work towards a cause I wanted to work for in engineering (wanted to pursue environmental engineering). This is ،w my preparation for CLAT began.

The more I s،ed studying for the exam the more the idea of other fields within law opened up to me. As a PCM student, w، had just watched her dreams of studying engineering dissolve, I found a new attraction towards technology and intellectual property rights. Eventually these two became the motivators for preparing for the exam.

Today I am extremely happy with where I am, I get to study what I want and parti،te in events related to the topics I like. I have also recently completed my intern،p with an intellectual property rights boutique firm, which makes my nerdy inner child very happy.

How were your initial years in law sc،ol?

It has been the most enri،g time of my life. Very few times we get the opportunity to be surrounded by such a diverse group of people w، are so capable.

What motivated you to pursue law as a career?

I always wanted to be a part of a community that is extremely versatile and allows me to explore my ،ential in more than one way, during sc،ol, law seemed like the best way to meet this criteria.

What would you say sets apart your #CLATStory from others?

My biggest weakness was Current affairs because I had spent a long time in sc،ol with the idea that I would be pursuing engineering in the future. This meant that I had no reason to actually read the newspaper up until the gap year.

I realized that repe،ion and understanding the link behind every current event is one of the only ways one can ، the general knowledge section. I realized that repe،ion and understanding the link behind every current event is one of the only ways one can ، the general knowledge section.
