As luck would have it, he got into a niche technology, worked hard studying it and moved on. I joined what is called the largest bank and took a different turn altogether.
As I was saying his mellow heart cried when he thought others were earning better.
So he pinged me after years and wanted a treat from me.
I asked him where is he at this odd hour
