Imagine yourself to be a Muslim pleader in the Allahabad High Court in the late 19th century. What kind of clothes would you wear? Would they be very different from what you wore at home?

As a pleader in Allahabad High Court in the late 19 th
century, I would wear a professional Western dress which included black coat under a black gown, white trousers and white tie, which was the normal dress of an advocate in court. .
These would be totally different from what I would wear at home, where I wear my comfortable traditional dress, a cotton pyjama and shirt/kurta.
