Me: Do Railway pays you the salary?
Suresh: No, they give you license. We paid hefty amount back then when we were told that we'd get a permanent job in railways, 7 years till now but still nothing rolled on to our plate.
After a long pause,
Suresh: Are you a student?
Suresh: I also finished P.U and then had to work to run the family and slowly I married and now I have son who is doing ITI in mechanical branch.
Me: To add, I said, even I'm Mechanical engineer.
