Professionals, Ageing & Maturity

May 3, 2014

Last couple of weeks of each semester in the college are always the busiest period of the academic session. Completion of syllabus and its revision, evaluation of answer sheets, submission of records to the concerned department, and calculation of shortage of attendance of the students are some of the most common activities that had to take place in that short span of time. Meetings after meetings take place for discussing different agenda points or communicating the instructions received from the examining body at the last minute. Like any meetings in any organisation there are always people of different age group having a different level of maturity.

One evening I returned home and was having tea quietly still thinking about what had happened during the meeting.

Arvind saw me immersed in my thought and asked, ‘Anything serious? What are you thinking of? One should learn to leave the office at office or college at college so to say.’

‘Do you think with age one matures too?’ I asked.

‘Not necessarily, I think’, he said and then added with a smile, ‘Ageing may not necessarily bring maturity in people but proper maturation can bring about the ageing properties.’

I looked towards him and my expressions clearly conveyed to him what I wanted to ask, ‘Means?’

‘See the dictionary says ‘ageing is the process of change in the properties of a material occurring over a period, either spontaneously or through deliberate action’, he said surfing on the net onhis iPad and had opened the online dictionary.

‘And maturity is having reached an advanced stage of mental or emotional development characteristic of an adult’, he continued.

‘And you see, a very good example of this the newly launched Triple Gold Reserve by Black Dog. TGR what it is known as is Triple Matured. Truly refined! Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, is the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process. The blend has a delicate finish and is accepted at parallel with any 12 Y.O blend’, he added with a light laugh.

‘Leave your tea and and taste it right now’, he said. I laughed. Moods were changed, the atmosphere was light again and the evening was fresh again!
