You are a Senior Citizen now!

Overnight as you cross 60th and enter into 61st year, you become a Senior Citizen, a Pensioner & an old man. What a transformation! 

On last day of 60th enjoyed the farewell office party. Had sweets, got photographed & listened to speeches extolling my virtues even from adversaries. Like my Zonal Manager The Baldy. We were as close as New Delhi is to Kanya Kumari & yet the fellow went on speaking about the great work done at the branch, positive thinking & great customer relations etc. Whereas Yours Truly felt like kicking his teeth out! The Baldy forgot to mention that we pulled each others’ hair more often than not.

Friends & foes alike mentioned about me as a great man, a great friend, a great philosopher, a great guide, a great worker, great officer, great ethical person etc. During the meeting I felt myself a really great personality which hitherto I had not known! While concluding the farewell they presented a gift which later turned out to be wrist watch. Now having retired Yours Truly had to pay lesser attention to time & they presented me a wrist watch!

Well now after a year of retirement may I try to define Retirement? It’s something like this: When living is easy & leisurely and the payments are hard - you have retired! May be you will improve upon this definition when you retire.

After retiring from service all the faculties of Yours Truly are working. This is amply proved by the fact that on tooth brush only dental cream has been used and not shaving cream!

Following dialogue makes the matter of retirement more clear:

-Dadaji how many days are there in a week?

-Betaji 6 Saturdays & 1 Sunday.
