The kid we met this morning is totally enthusiastic, all charged about making a mark in this city, taking on this qualifying exam and that one, making a name in his line of work. Does me good to see such drive.
Envy that.

umm, all I can read nowadays are novels. If there is any study material, I sleep after reading a page. There is a mental block that I am too old to study.

I also envy that kind of enthusiasm.

Make a mark on Mumbay? Oh yes ...

But it is fine to see it, to see them start. That is one of the good things when you teach.
