I do not want to become a teacher like my elder brother. A teacher's lot is very hard. He is overworked but underpaid. He commands no respect in society. The so-called nation-builder cannot make both ends meet. He cannot educate his children. He cannot build a house. He is born poor, lives poor and dies poor.

I shall serve God's creatures.
I shall look after them. I shall nurse them as my own. I shall go to my patients as a ministering angel. I shall heal their wounds. I shall cure their
