Anecdote: You have 24 left still

An anecdote from Rajaji’s life as narrated by a professor recently struck me as unique in terms of how much undue importance we attach to our degrees and how little to actually educating ourselves.

The anecdote was about Rajaji’s daughter in law who rushes into the house and announces that she’s completed her B.A. Rajaji cooly responds, “Well, you have 24 more letters left to complete”.

A short anecdote, but right on the point.
