I believe Pink Floyd had it right.
We don’t need no education that takes nephews away from family members – even an admittedly self-described “amazing” “jethu” (uncle) – because of some stinking tests that one has to ace.
That said, I would not give up anything to get a chance to see these two – even if for a short-lived 30 minutes visit at their place during a break in their studies.
I have gone from relying on these two receiving me at the airport every single time to waiting for them to get out of school so that we can have some free time together again…
Now you know why my life long ambition has been to never grow up. I refuse to do it even now.
