I met a family friend today, a nice middle-aged man, whose son is in Standard 12.
Uncle: Vinesh, so how is your software line?
Me: I buy only VIP Frenchie. It is very comfortable, thank you uncle.
Uncle: Hahaha! I mean your IT industry..
Me: My IT industry?? Yea, what about it?
Uncle: How is the scope? You studied Computer Engineering, no?
Me: (oh yeaa!!) Yes, uncle, the software industry is doing just great. So what is Varun going to study after his 12th? He must have some plans, right?
Me: I have given him total freedom. I am not a strict father. Let him study as he wishes. I have given him total liberty to study whatever he wants...
Me: Oh that's gr..
Uncle: He can either become a doctor or engineer. The choice is entirely his. I won't interfere at all! Even his mother thinks the same. And his grandfather, uncle, my neighbour, my office colleague..all of us feel that he should be left to his choice...what do you think?
I looked at Varun. He seemed to be living my life all over again.
