My Dad was working as a Senior Technical Assistant in OT at JNMC Medical College Aligarh and today was his last day of work; he retired today from his duty there. He joined JNMC in 1972 as a Technical Assistant (TA) and later was promoted to STA. Strange thing is I never went to his workplace but I know what was his job and how easily my Dad was a favorite for every doctor there in OT. I know this because doctors often use to especially call my dad for assisting some serious operations and they always said they cannot do it without my Dad presence. After a farewell party when he returned home, he looked happy but I am sure he will be sad from inside. He loved his job, never took unnecessary leave and sometimes even went on the duty when he could easily skip going without any problem. I am curious to see what he will do tomorrow morning as it will be the first day after so many years when he will not be going to job on weekday.
