A dialogue between two friends about journalists
Yasir: For how long have you been in the profession of journalism?
Owais: Some five, six years.
Y: I thought you were inexperienced.
O: Five, six year experience means nothing, so, in a way, I am new.
Y: Whatever you are, but you are far more experienced than me.
O: Yes, you can say. What about your experience?
Y: (Laughing) nothing like experience. I joined this field some months ago.
O: Doesn't matter. Everyone is inexperienced in the start.
Y: Yes it is true, but even then, sometimes, you feel frustrated.
O: Yes, it is part of the game.
Y: You know, in the early stages, one gets almost nothing, but there is a hell of work.
O: (Consoling) don't you worry. Things will turn O.K.
Y: I am afraid, I will quit this job.
O: No, no, not even think like this.
Y: Are you satisfied with this job.
O: I am not satisfied, but I am not dissatisfied.
Y: What do you mean? isn't it paltering?
O: Actually, the thing is, one has to compromise with the circumstances.
Y: How can one? when everybody goes on snubbing you.
O: I do understand you, but with the passage of time one becomes used to.
Y: Thanks for encouraging me a bit.
O: No, no, it's just O.K. I can help you practically too.
Y: You are really great.
O: It's not so.
