I am sure most of you would have heard about this video (if not already seen it).
This also has scenes from my company :)


The lessons

Ok, another post inspired from The Wonder Years :)
In the episode Our Miss White, Kevin finds himself attracted to his teacher Miss White. He is sure it is love from both sides, in his words "It is something which exists but is too far-fetched to survive in the real world", and  the only reason both of them hold back is because of the society.

The episode seemed to be related to me somewhere. I also used to accompany my father to his office sometimes as a kid and was at a total loss to understand what he did before those trips. Not that after that I knew it pretty well, but still I got to know some things.
Kevin was very impressed by the fact that his father is in a position to give orders to others, even though he did not get a word of what he was saying. I used to feel the same sense of pride when I realised that my father is a boss for so many ppl (it helped matters that I never got to meet his boss :) ) and also that he is …
