Education and career BY ads” 5 Strange topic for an equally strange day. After frustrating myself with some stupid files that Just wouldn’t open, I slipped outside the office to kill time and grab a bit to eat before leaving for Pun. I went to Eternity Mall in the vicinity and brought a take away cappuccino with me to the office after a light dinner. As soon as I entered the office all hell broke loose and it started raining for which the Galls would have freaked out saying ” The sky is falling on our heads! “. I had no option but to wait for some time at the office.I was Just checking out some news on the net when the chaw-Walla who has a small shop in the compound, dropped by to say hello.
He was a pleasant fellow, but I never really had had a talk with him. I started by a casual question Just to start some kind of a conversation “How long have you had your Chaw-stall here? “. “Its been here since the last 25 years or so. My father started it and now I am helping my brother run it.
” We drifted in and out of casual conversation when he dropped a bomb, he said ” I am ere only for a vacation.I teach Sanskrit at a college near my village to 10 to 12 SST kids”. I was really impressed by this. ” I have completed my MA in Sanskrit and also my a-De.
I will go back to the college when it re-opens. ” This really had me floored. This man here who had a master’s degree in Sanskrit (which frankly terrorized me in school) was totally at ease doing a challis’s Job here.
I left soon after that for Pun and that conversation really had me doing some serious thinking. Cheers!
