  3. Prodip was a man rich of knowledge, people called him “fountain of knwledge”.He argued with Swami Gajanand(Uncle) about the technology advancements between India and the West. After they discussed their difference of ideas people in the audience threw him out because they felt offended. Uncle said, “The respectful learneth”, meaning that the crowd should show respect to other and not offend nobody even though they are not agree.
