Arjun- Okay, then bye
2 January 2020
Arjun and Mukesh go to Cafe Coffee Day as planned
Mukesh- Hi! What are you doing these days?
Arjun- nothing much, just an IT professional.
Mukesh- that's great! What did you want to talk about?
Arjun- First, Congrats! I see your name very often in the paper. And second, I understand what you meant by marks do not matter in my case.
Mukesh-Thanks, What did you understand?
Arjun- You wanted to be a footballer and marks do not matter for that. You need the skill which you have. Now I know aunty Ji( Mukesh's mom) was right. You were also correct at that time, and you are still.
Mukesh- You are right, and also I do not mean that you should not study if you want to become a sportsperson. All you need is a skill and some common sense. Bye! Gotto go
