his morning while visiting the college office to collect a few pending documents, I found myself face-to-face with an old nemesis – Shukla, the college watchman. I caught his attention as I walked through the college gate. “ID card kidhar hai? ID card nahin toh no entry,” he barked, while waving his danda in my face and spraying a fresh coat of gutka on the wall next to him.

I don’t study in here anymore. How do I get an ID? “Office mein kaam tha,” I told him.
