1. I have a younger brother named Arun.
2. He is four years younger to me and wants to take the same educational field as I had.
3. So I am deeply involved in his studies and keep track of his performances and improvements in all the subjects especially in maths since he finds it particularly challenging.
4. I also help him outside academics if he is stuck at something.
5. I remember one such incident.
6. We were sitting together in our living room and he was working on our computer.
7. I sensed something was not right because he seemed flustered.
8. I waited for few minutes to see if things settle down but his frustration level was rising with the time then I decided to intervene.
9. I asked him what was bothering him.
10. He told me that he was trying to create a gmail account but was not being able to because of some error.
11. So I asked him to try it once more in front of me so that I could see what he was trying to do and why was he failing in this endeavor.
12. The basic information that is required to create a gmail account is your full name, age, country and contact number.
13. He had filled everything correctly yet google was rejecting his gmail application.
14. Even I was confounded for a moment because everything seemed right to me at the first glance.
15. Then I gave it a keen look and realized that both of us had misses a nuance.
16. As it happened at that time my brother was a minor and for minors gmail had a policy that they could not open a gmail account until they provided contact information of his guardian and got it verified from the guardian.
17. So I told him to put my gmail id in the guardian’s contact column.
18. As soon as he did it I got a confirmation email from google.
19. I opened that email and gave my consent to my brother’s gmail account.
20. Once Google received my consent, my brother proceeded with the process of opening his own gmail account and this time he succeeded.
21. He was relieved eventually but I told him that this should teach him a lesson that while doing such things on internet he should be very careful and should be mindful of small details because these seen minor but prove to be very critical as it was in this case.
