You Cannot Be A Doctoral Expert, A Ph.D. External Examiner - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

A university teacher from Allahabad
Said to me,
You cannot be a doctoral examiner
As you teach in a college.

Hearing him, smiled I,
Said I not to,
Never have I gone after
Posting and placement.

If be this, let the varsity come
And test me,
I am an expert on Jayanta Mahapatra
And the non-knowing will examine the theses on him.

Something kept me from bursting,
I am that Bijay Kant Dubey
Who never took anything else from the U.G.C.
Instead worked from my own pocket.

After doing M.A. in Eng., Hist. & Pol.Sc.,
Ph.D. in English,
If I cannot be a Ph.D. examiner,
Who can be then,
Say you to me?
