My daughter has finished her 12th grade and is planning to go to medical school. She was attending pre-exam medical coaching class in a reputed institution. She wants to get in by merit and not by capitation. To my discomfiture education agents who send students to various paid-capitation institutions have got my phone number. They bug me endlessly by making phone calls day and night. Sometimes, I feel like smashing my phone to smithereens. I always miss and long for genuine people to call me.
