My Story: Conversation With This Auto Driver Changed The Way I Think

The Logical Indian

February 17th, 2016

“Last week I went to Ahmednagar for some official work. I got an auto from Chandni chowk to my workplace. Though it was early morning yet Dilip Ji (Auto Driver) was very fresh and active. It was my first time to Ahmednagar so I started to ask a few things about this place from him. After some time, the talk shifted to govt vs private players. He shared on how govt. allowed private players to enter in the business field of tv channels and mobile industry and how they eventually replaced govt. running a business in the same field. He was mentioning these entire points one after the other but still somehow he always managed to add some positive point to end the discussion.

He told that his son got a rank of around 6500 in IIT, though could not make it to IIT general list but managed to get a seat in some reputed college in Maharashtra. I told him to console; yes this reservation system is problematic and has caused anger. I expected confidently that he will agree with my statement, but to my surprise he added,  my son always knew that reservation is a part of this system and it never came all of a sudden to his surprise, so he was preparing for the examination accordingly. I got impressed by his thought process.

The discussion then moved on to Clean India. He mentioned that people are blaming government every time and fixing out one or the other reason to support their unexpected behavior. He told how some of us are complaining that Garbage bins are not available on roadside and thus are insisted on throwing garbage here and there. [a day b4 only I went through the same situation, was holding a wrapper to throw it in garbage but could not find one for 5-10 minutes and thus threw it somewhere there only, having the same thought of blame game to govt.]  He said, Sir when we feel pressure, unlike throwing garbage, we always move to a toilet carrying all that shit in our body but when it comes to the garbage I do not know why we feel ashamed of carrying it to its deserved destination. These lines of him were enough to prove once again that it is not only the degree which makes u wise.
I Salute this guy.”
