All these years I have been listening that I am the most irresponsible person on the earth. Very often my mom, for and, for last 10 years, my wifey always talk big, give lectures on taking responsibility but do not take any responsibility on my shoulders. Long back I have started believing that I am a evading kind of character. But something happened last night which made myself proud. Last night I realized there are are others too. There are people who do not even want to take responsibility for the job they are are paid to do.

When I reached home at 8 and was looking for a quick drink before restarting my lappy to send pending emails, Sutanu said "Write a no objection letter before doing anything else". I was taken aback. No objection letter? What for? What have I done again? She said - You have to write a No Objection Letter for the school as Sagnik is going to a 1/2 day tour to Science City (its one of the few places in where children can go, most of the other places are occupied by underage lovers busy with adult activities). Well, that was completely out of the blue for me. Sagnik is participating in a tour organized by his school and I have to write a No Objection Letter? What does it mean? I was quite angry by that time. Does it mean that school will not be responsible even if they do something stupid or something happens to the children? "I don't know" - Sutanu replied without the slightest consideration to my anger. "Do you have any other choice? Can you convince your son that he would better stay at home?" - This time she was almost murmuring to herself. She did not want Sagnik to listen to this conversation.

Yes, I had no other choice. I had to certify to the Principal of one of the most reputed school of Kolkata, B D Memorial Institute, that my 8 year old son will be with them for the day to Science City but the institute will not be responsible for anything wrong. I thought they are paid to take care of my child while he is with them.
