Time Out: Harjit Rait of LCF Law

The weekend has come back around again and that means a new ‘Time Out’. This week’s questions are answered by Harjit Rait, an Associate within LCF Law’s Family Department. Based in Bradford, Harjit would like the ability to slow down time.

What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?

Friday night is family night. We usually cook loads of food, I share a bottle of wine with my husband and watch a kids movie, which the children love, and I never see the end of, as I have normally fallen asleep on the sofa!

What is your hobby?
I love reading, plus spending as much time as possible with my family and friends. In this day and age, you can often feel pulled in all directions and it’s important to pause, remember what is important, and focus on that.

What is your favourite movie?
I love all the 80’s movies – The Lost Boys, The Breakfast Club, Coming to America and all the Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd movies. Back to Future, The Karate Kid and The Rocky movies had a huge impact on me as a child. I also love Bollywood movies.

If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?
I would love to think of a really interesting answer to this question but can’t! In an ideal world I would have liked to have found a niche in the market, set up my own business working around the needs of my family and filling that niche whilst making millions, but in reality, probably teaching.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?
To slow down time.

What is your favourite genre of music?
1980’s Bhangra music and all Hindi music. I also love Tiffany – her song ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ is a classic, and reminds me of school discos and dodgy hair dos.

If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?
This is such a tough question. Maybe some time in the 70’s & 80’s as I love the music and fashion of that genre, or at the rise and time of the Roman Empire, or when my children were toddlers – I wish I could relive that time, looking back it was magical but has passed in the blink of an eye!
