One day I was coming from shopping , I was driving my bike , I saw a guy walking on the road and he was crying . I stopped my bike and went to him . I called him and said what happened ? Why you crying bro ? He said no I am ok ! I said no you doesn't seems ok so tell me what's wrong he said no I am ok again . But he was really so upset . I could see his eyes were red and his face was wet . I said ok bro take care and I started my bike and moved on . But his face was coming in my mind , my heart became melted because I could feel that he was really so upset . I turned my bike back again and he was walking . I stopped again and said to him I can't let you walk like that so sit on my bike and tell me what happened or if you don't want to tell than just sit with me and I will give you a wee ride so I can change your mood . He sat . I said where you from mate . He said I am from Bihar ( a state in India's East) . I said are you studying here or working and he said I am a student in a private professional university which is in my city . So many international students also study there . That's a famous university because they advertise themselves allot . I said to that guy tell me what's wrong may be I can help you or give you moral support. I just wanted him to speak about his pain so he can feel light . I just wanted to be a shoulder on which he can cry and feel better . Because in these kinda situations if someone gives you hug or listen to you , you always feel better but if there is nobody to listen then you just can't cope up with pain . He started telling me and he was also crying . He said bro I am a B.tec student in this university for two years and it supposed to be my final year. He said university saying you have to drop this year and have to pay fees again because your scores are not good . He said they doing this with me only because of money . They greedy . They do it with so many other students too and students can't do anything. He said some his friends also became victims like him before. It's just a part of their business . Now they they doing it with me when I know my score couldn't be less. They just hiding the truth . Their criteria of exams is not even very transparent . He said I will be so much in problem if they will do that to me because I am not financially strong . He said am paying my fees with so much hard work just because I want a good job after my degree but they don't care how am arranging my fees . He said I explained my problem to chancellor but she said I don't care its a rule . It made him so upset because he was good in studies and he knew what he was writing in exams. He said I don't have father and two younger sisters who are not even married yet and I am there only brother and I have all the responsibility of my family on my shoulders after my dad died . He said back his home everyone knows hez studying and this year he will get a job placement. Everyone have so many expectations from him. He said he spent loads of money on his education already by paying fees to his university and now they say one more year . He said he can't afford and can't even leave his education incomplete . He said but now hez thinking finally to quit and going back to home leaving his study incomplete and start a job in his own town because he have no hope. He said it be so hard but I have no other choice . I said to him you can go to court against them. He said no I can't because for that also you should have spare money which I don't have . Also university owners have connections with all politicians so they very powerful . I don't want to mess with them because I know nobody will listen to me because of corruption in government. He told me that this is a private university and he came to know that before opening this university owners use to run other businesses too . They earned money and invested it in education business which made them billionaire now . They only doing a business and they have nothing to do with student's feelings or career. I was listening to him and was thinking this is not right but who cares right or wrong , people just want money . I said to him bro I heard you and I feel so sympathy for you . You obviously facing a real challenge and injustice too. I said I wish I can help you but this is beyond my power. I said you stop crying and feeling low first and then motivate yourself . Sit and see what pros and cons are . Think properly but don't worry. Be strong and try to find a good way . I said I can give you only hope that one day you ll be fine and I wish you good luck. I wanted him to give my number but he didn't ask and I also forgot. I wanted to stay in touch with him to know whether he ok or not. I could invite him for a beer and motivate him. He started feeling better after telling me his story and when were driving . He said ! So bro just drop me at near his room as he was living somewhere on rent. I dropped him near his place which wasn't far from my place . I gave him hug he said thanks humbly. I said you don't worry ok just fight and don't surrender urself , try ! He smiled and said ok I will and moved on . I came to home but I was thinking about his problem. I just prayed for him and his family . I really can't forget it . I don't know why government grant permission to private people to run a university or colleges which are directly related with careers of youngsters. If they grant than why don't they check the quality of their work. May be because money talks ! But this is a nonsense. It's happening everywhere. Schools , colleges , uninversites are only for business now . Just for business . Not all but there are so many. I agree that they need money to run an education institutions but there should be a limit or their gredyness. I think education should not be just a business .
