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