Things I have been

I started out, my first earning, was by being an extra in a hindi firm.  I got Rs50, and spent Rs25 of it on buying for myself a copy of Greene’s The Quiet American.  Shabbir Rangwala swiped the book off me.

I have been a servant in NY.  Thus I could relate to the work of Shrimati, and even showed her how to use a mop.

I have been an economist in a large investment bank, and have guided the policies of nations.

But I have not been a chef!
