“Every writer I know has trouble writing.”
I was waiting for my turn.
The interview was for the post of Assistant Web Editor.
One of the anxious looking applicant began making introduction with everyone.
There was a gentleman reading a fortnightly.
I couldn’t resist myself, when I heard his name.
“Aren’t you the writer of ‘ABC’( name of the book withheld).”
“How could you remember my book written thirty years back?”
I quoted some of the lines from his book that I’d read some 15 years ago.
His eyes spread with happiness & surprise at once.
“O my goodness, you still remember after alll those years. Nobody remembers nowdays!”
“Your book ‘ABC’ is one of my favorites in Nepali literature,” I disclosed.
Of late I had been thinking that I was getting too old for job interviews.
And here was a writer of the calibre I envied appearing with me in a job interview.
