An Old Story
Long ago, a TV set (Black and White) used to cost Rs 2000, three months’ salary of a person, equivalent to Rs 100,000. in today’s money terms!
My cousin used to repair B&W TVs. One Sunday I accompanied him on a service call. It was a truck driver’s house. F90+ temperature, daytime. Brijesh opened the TV from behind. Tried all the tricks, his ustaad had taught him. After half an hour he was as clueless as he was in the first 5 minutes. He was sweating, so was I. The host’s wife offered us some cold drink. Brijesh concluded that the trouble with the set was more serious than what he thought.
