The dialogue

The cut-off to some colleges are ridiculous! They want an average of 100%

So? Don’t tell me you have got less than 100%?!

I got 99.1%. But that won’t do for admission in the top colleges.

Top colleges in Delhi only, right?

You mean there are decent colleges outside Delhi?

Well, I know some folks who are in Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore... colleges.

But will they ever find any job better than McDonald’s managers? I’m doomed!

But tell me, how is it that a smart girl like you managed to not get 100%?

It must have been that 20-mark question on Hamlet. It was: ‘Describe the relationship between Hamlet and his father.’ I wrote the answer
over three pages!

Oh dear. The correct answer was Freudian.

Do say: Thank god there’s the IITs.

Don’t say: Do you think a donation could help?
