Thirty years ago I sat in the lecture halls of the old building of the English Department of this great university with my pen and paper, eyes glued to the black board and dashing between that board and the bespectacled faces of grey-haired, rather stern-looking lecturers. Their words were like the gospel and their writings on the board were like scriptural canons. We took notes religiously and meticulously. The lecturers were academic authorities with papal infallibility who held the key to the long and winding tunnel of knowledge which we all desired to find like the holy grail. That was the time when those lecturers and old library books (some pages torn off and stolen by academic hooligans) were the narrow gate to the kingdom of knowledge.
