Editor’s Note: We shall try to make this Blog more interesting and a little lighter by including short stories from the past that might have lessons for us today.
Most people believe that age or seniority is of paramount importance in Indian society. That is certainly so today. You see it in just about every aspect of Indian academic, governmental sectors and even in India’s private sector.

The story below demonstrates that age was not always considered to be main factor for determining seniority.
How we wish this judgement is carved in every classroom, every governmental office and in every private sector company!
