I was off on travel most of last week and didn't check mail.

I didn't make any claims about being a teacher or a sampradaayavit
(unlike SSS and his disciples), did I? If anyone claims I am the
sampradaayavit who enlightened him/her/it, let it be known that
he/she/it is an imposter :-).

We have relatively low-level HR employees checking the credentials of
potential employees here at the company I work. Suppose a guy who
claims to have a Ph.D comes to interview with us, and is asked by this
lower-level human-resources worker for his degree certificate, so that
HR can xerox it for book-keeping. How do you think the interviewee
would respond to the HR worker?

a. Do you have a Ph.D?
b. Here's my Ph.D degree certificate.

I think any sane fellow will follow b. If it pleases you, consider me
the the low-level HR employee with a 12th grade education and SSS as
the person claiming to have a Ph.D.
