(Not so) Dear Watchman-at-Purana-Qila,
This is to suggest that you abstain from underestimating people henceforth, for your own good.
I can tolerate being typecast into the wide-eyed NRI mould by your type, though I still am clueless why you do that. I am in fact, quite used to it (“You are basically from Chennai. . but you live in Europe na?” (!!!)).
But I shall not tolerate what you did.
How dare you ask me “so, which class do you study in?”.
That too on a morning when I was smugly celebrating silver jubilee!
Blasphemy! Moron! Go get your eyes checked!
See how tall I’ve grown!
And, if time permits, get your brain checked too.
Have you seen any school kid who appears at your gate at sunrise? Alone? 15 minutes before your ticket counter opens? And spend two hours as the lone privileged tourist with exclusive access to the Old Fort grounds doing this?
I thus warn you : Never ever make the mistake of underestimating one’s age & hence his/her ‘wisdom’ 😛
Angrily (not) yours,
Student who studies ‘college’ at IIT
