Where he was sitting on the principal’s chair, the saris were always stuck around the necks of those sitting in the same chair. When this dervish person sat on the principal’s chair, that chair became equally dear to the teachers and students alike. The awe and glory of the principal’s office, which used to be there, not only increased the honor of this simple man. Did he spend four moons due to his humble nature?

College students chanted “Bring our father back” on the streets. The situation became so tense that the governor had to cancel the exchange. When the exchange was canceled, the students carried the dervishes on their shoulders. He sat down and danced happily and brought it back to the principal’s office of the college. Hardly any principal in the history of government college has received such love.
