Hi Rose! One of the moderators should notice your comment in the Chatroom and delete the other puzzle. As far as I know there's no way to do it yourself.

Is this puzzle about the saying "All work and no play makes X a dull boy / girl"? Does this apply to you? Someone else? Relevant how old they are? Their profession?

Is he self-employed?I think he wants to be that is what he would be if he totally decides to pursue this profession. Does he provide a service? Is his name Jack (as in the original saying)?

Does the new job specifically involve not talking? or does it just not involve talking?
Was he a lawyer? politician? Is he now a mime?
Did he lose his voice? and thus was forced to quit his original job?

Hi Rose.
Looking at previous answers, his previous job only involved talking out of that list from Kapil Kapur (Dinkie) on Monday, April 18, 2005 - 02:33 pm?
So was he in entertainment?
Is he now in entertainment?
if so:
Radio?
Television?
Music?
Film?
Animation?
Stage?
Comedy?
