For the last several weeks, we have become accustomed to a babyish cry rending the air in morning. It’s from Brian a three years old boy resisting his mothers wish to proceed with journey. He wants to get in a rare affinity to computers. Wherever his mother passes near the Maarifa centre, the mother’s love in Brian is replaced by the love for computers! Unless he is hungry he can sit before the computer doing amazing things the whole day.
Wherever he enters the centre Brian who only speaks mother tongue, have the courtesy to request for permission to operate the computer. When permission is granted, he doesn’t require assistance, he knows which button to press and the machine comes to life. Nothing else makes more sense to Brian than the computer games, which he plays with gusto. This could easily be dismissed as childhood fantasy, but I think if looked critically it can be early signs of a career choice.
