Just bring home the degree.

Kumar is a proud father of three loving children whom i have seen them grown since babies. Neeray the eldest boy has just came back from Russia to become a qualified medical doctor. The entire educational funding was provided by his father who has been working very hard for the past thirty years. Is not easy to work and save sufficiently for the children, and i am glad Kumar had did his best to fulfill the children dreams. I understand them very well because i am the life insurance agent for the family.

His second son Nishant has just left for London last month to take up law. I know he would definitely be a successful lawyer when he returns in three years time. Today is his birthday. With the new hand phone number given by his dad, i sent him this message. It was written as; "Hi Nishant. Three things my sons promised me before they left to study in England 18 years ago. First...don't bring home a white woman. Second..don't bring home the HIV. Last..only bring home the degree. And you will make your dad & mum the happiest people on earth. Happy Birthday today and have a fun fun day. Robert Foo."

Nishant is an intelligent boy and i am sure he knows what i meant. He replied with a big Thank You. Specially for Kumar and his family - "A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education he may steal the whole railroad" - Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) American president
