views and views...

1. met an acquaintance at a mall after a long time... he had gone on vacation and was back after admitting his daughter to a medical school... good news, certainly...
when i mentioned that his responsibilities were now over since she was on a firm route, he commented, "the wedding is still left."
even for a budding doc, marriage holds a preeminent position... is this cultural conditioning or is it the way we want to continue?...

2. long back, when i was working for a NBFC (got stuck? a Non-banking Financial Company), the CEO, who had pathetic English, wanted to send his only son to Doon School... i was requested to do the correspondence on the couple's behalf with the School since neither of them could complete a sentence in the Queen's language...
while this was on, another gentleman who was close to the CEO asked him, "how would you manage to stay without H?"... the father replied, "it is not a question of how or whether we can stay without him... it is more a question of how he lives his life 20 years down the line."... he had clearly outstripped his cultural conditioning, i felt...
