Till two days back, I was a student. And then there was a Sunday - the only vacation I had for a transition from a full-time student to a full-time professor. In just one day, from a student of IIMA, I became an alumnus of IIMA and in just two days, I am remembering Ghalib -
गालिब वज़ीफ़ाख्वार हो दो शाह को दुआ
वो दिन गये कि कहते थे नौकर नहीं हूँ मैं!!
a rough translation would be
Bless the king Ghalib for you are on his doles now,
gone are the days when you were a free bird.
