Currently a 2nd year student at Amity Law School, Kolkata, Ratula Datta believes that the two most important qualities that a person who is or will be a part of the legal fraternity must possess are, empathy and compassion. "When it comes to mediation, one must possess the said qualities and be able to understand the needs of both the parties for providing them the solace they are seeking" says Ratula.
There are several are areas in Beliaghata and Karunamoyee that have a huge number of people unaware about the existence of mediation. These areas will be her primary focus for mediation drives, apart from which she will be informing people working in or around the university. She will conduct a possible seminar at her university to educate students about mediation, who upon having the knowledge can lend a helping hand. The mediation drives will be carried out mostly on weekends.
