10) Recently your brother was awarded PhD by not so good university. Your family members were happy about his achievement. They even published small congratulatory note in local newspaper. You are preparing for civil services exam soon after completion of Bachelor of Arts from a well known college in the capital city. Over the years you have acquired good knowledge of various issues and you can articulate them very well with anyone. On the other hand, despite getting PhD, your brother is not aware of current issues. A well known school nearby your residence calls for applications for the post of social science teacher. You and your brother both apply for this job. In the interview process you are rejected and your brother is selected. They say that you are ineligible as you are not sufficiently qualified to teach students. Your parents are again happy that your brother got the job. At the same time they insist you to pursue masters and then PhD just like your brother so that you too would get some job if you do not make it into civil services.
