Rekha

What value is education to me

I tried to convince her about education.
I failed.

I felt miserable.

Really ? We need to come up with strong stories to tell these kids. Il ping you on gchat about this. This is disheartning. I have had a similar experience in Dharamshala. My tour guide thought people with degrees are meant to stand in long lines for jobs and people like him make money running errands and doing guide jobs . He did not know how to read at all. But could use some fanc english words to impress firang clients. I was devastated and I when I tried to talk to him about it. He pointed out I do't know the reality since I live in US. I was shattered. He was 27 though so a hard nut to crack
