As I was in India, as usual once a year I have to show my Face to Judge.
As we went to court, Afternoon session was about to start. We just entered and Judge came to court room. Even Before he take his Place, My Lawyer went straight ahead and stood in front of Judge and said.

Lawyer said, Sir you called my client.
