It was about noon when the postman appeared abruptly with a telegram. It informed me that I had been selected in the I.E. to appear in which I had been permitted provisionally, pending the declaration of my +2 examination result. I had thus killed two birds with one stone. Not only had I got through an examination, but also my future career had been secured at one stroke.
Needless to say that the number of my congratulators increased manifold. My double success became the talk of the town. Even the principal and teachers of the school were kind enough to come to my house and congratulate me and exhort me to maintain the tempo of successes through hard work. I can indeed never forget the happiest day of my life 15th August, 1992.
