They are the most ignoble professions now. The nobility associated with these professions were due to the knowledge of these professionals as well as their unparalleled service motive - life saving by doctors, rendering justice by lawyers and human resource development by teachers even with no reward or negligible reward. Now all these professionals are after quick money disregarding and often misusing their professional skill. The decline is there in all professions, but when it's observed in noble professions , the damage is much intense. Will there be a reversal? It should be a miracle then!

Money make many things and it has made in-roads in the noble professions also. Nowadays we rarely come across professioanls who discharge their noble duties with laid down ethics of the professsion.

By and large, our society focuses more on accumulation overwhelmingly, so the possibility of nobility and other idealistic traits are quite close to nil. If the particular person was bought up w/a strong sense of empathy or feeling an intrinsic need to defend a weaker section of people, he won't exploit, but most household's in India don't bring their kids up that way because people tend to take advantage of empathy and noone wants to see their own kid exploited and taken advantage of.

The concept of calling a profession as noble belongs to the Victorian era. It is the English version of Caste system. Noble does not indicate character. It is used to mean an intelligent person or elegant person. The practitioners of Law, Medicine etc had to be intelligent and hence the professions were called noble profession. Using this yard stick doctors, lawyers and teachers are still well read and educated and the profession pursued by them can still be regarded as noble.
