Called up Subroto. What he told me about the current crisis he's wading through dropped a bomb on me. Clearly this fellow has been unlucky and I'm always expecting to hear something horrendous each time I hear of him, but even this wasn't enough to brace me for what he would be telling me.
It's easy to be judgmental and accuse him of screwing up his own life and I'm sure part of the blame squarely lies on him. Still, I can't feel sorry for the poor chap. He's been so misguided by the Martinet.
