Shashibushan Bandopadhyaya was a very successful and famous advocate of Calcutta who lived in the early part of the 19th century. He was well known for his honesty, compassion, and philanthropic attitude of life. During the beginning of 19th century, Shree Shashibhushan Bandopadhyaya was working as a government pleader in Hugli near Calcutta.

Once, at noon, in the hot summer of May, he hired a  horse cart and went to the house of a well-known gentleman for some work. It was a pleasant surprise for the gentleman. When the work was over, and it was the time of departure, he said, "Sir! you could have sent a note with your servant instead of having taken the trouble of coming to my place in this hot sun. I would have visited you."

The pleader replied, "Yes, it occurred to me in the beginning, but when I  thought of this scorching heat, I did not feel it right to send the servant. If he would come, he would have been either walking or on a bicycle, instead of a horse cart and in that case, he would have suffered more this terrible heat. With this in mind, I preferred to come myself." What a humane treatment of the servant it was! He looked upon the servant also as a friend!
