Then What Else?

Year 2011

One of my friend, wanted to meet all of his married friends and people who are in relationships. Yes, he is going to see a girl tomorrow on his marriage proposal .He never met any girl on marriage proposal front. He wanted, all of his friends valuable suggestion on what to talk and what not to.

The early morning sun seemed a good experience for my friend. His normal morning would be starting at 10:00am and today he advanced his clock by couple of hours. He brushed thrice, did not smoke and nicely clipped all his nails. The ruffled hair got a nice trim. He took bath and used , half bottle of body spray. Yes the girl’s house is a bit far and it’s also a bit sultry outside.

Girl’s home:

His mind recited all the valuable suggestions. His anxiety and fear climbed like a lift. His forehead sweat was evidence of his anxiety. He got received well and sat in the center of the hall. The house got cleaned for today’s occasion. But the relative crowd seemed a lot.

Cutlets, Sweets And savouries got served. My friend did not touch anything, but got busy by rehearsing all the valuable suggestions on what to ask and what not to. The girl came to the hall and served him coffee. Both family parents now decided that my friend and the girl can have a private talk. While they were deciding, my anxious friend was almost in the middle of the hall to join hands with the girl for a chat. Few relatives were giggling about his eagerness.

The normal balcony, now seemed heaven for the girl. My friend’s mind now turned like an empty mind. He forgot all what he wanted to ask. The same feeling as we get in the exam hall when question paper is given. He stared at her and told, that he is a bit tensed. The girl also wanted to say the same, but smiled and empathized him.

They were speaking for some time and suddenly, the girl’s dad came inside their room with a plate of cutlet. My friend got pissed off literally. He took the plate in his hand and the girl and he shared some of their thoughts. He stared at the cutlet and the girl alternatively for every discussion they had, he got hungry, but he couldn’t eat. Yeah, everything has its own time. This is not time for eating. The heatless cutlet was turning hard and he turning soft and melting.

Time for him to leave and my friend’s father asked him… Do you like the girl?. My friend did not expect that question so quickly…. And tried to hide his embarrassed face. The entire relatives crowd is now looking at the guy’s face. The Future father in law is looking at the girl’s face. The guy is still processing his answer.

After a week,

 The guy and girl are in phone for hours together, asking “Then what else?”. What else then? Their marriage got fixed. Long live Indian arranged marriages

Get out

Year 1998

Since no one paid any attention to her lessons, Our computer science teacher got more angry.

My front bench occupied by 3 mates… cared a damn about her lessons. No one in the class paid any kind of attention. People did not like her because, her very poor English; made us to clearly understand nothing in her class.

She was good at computer languages, but not in English. Losing her patience, seeing the class amusing…  she shouted  “ Shut the mouth of everyone”.  For all the young blood who listened to this, roared in laughter.

Unable to control her anger, she loudly remarked to us … “ All 3 of you…get out  the bench” .

Since we did not want to insult her, We moved out of our bench and started lifting it!

That’s the last time I saw her & first time a teacher crying and leaving the class room.

Her hearty blessings… made most of us land into IT field 🙂

Babur: Hi Rama, Hope you’re doing fine.

Rama:  Hey Babur, yeah am great, thanks & how about you.

Babur: Am fantastic & eagerly waiting for the verdict.

Rama:  Oh! Am also as curious as you are!

Babur: Why are you so curious about it?

Rama:  I want to know whether I will get a place in Ayodhya.

Babur: Is there a doubt in it? You have a place in everyone’s heart.

Rama:  Yeah (proudly)… Even though I was born in Ayodhya I’ve spent most of my life in the forests.

Babur: (Laughing)… You know what; the name of the mosque itself was Masjid-i Janmasthan until 1940. And it got named that way to declare that it was your birthplace. (If you do not believe me, please visit Wikipedia for history.)

Rama: Oh yeah, I forgot the history because; I was busy doing my work saving all people. By the way, how was your Ramzan

Babur: It was great and your brothers came for the function and it was a pleasant surprise. I and my family got honored by this.

Rama:  Please do come for Diwali to our home and make it a fantastic and memorable one.

Babur: Sure Rama, I would definitely join you for Diwali.

Rama:  Hey Babur, Please excuse me, I got to visit the Sethu Samudhiram Site for some project work. Catch you later.

Babur: Oh no issues, I too have a meeting with my Counsel. See you…

Babur & Rama departed praying for the wellness of all people.

Babur: Hi Rama, Hope you’re doing fine.

Rama:  Hey Babur, yeah am great, thanks & how about you.

Babur: Am fantastic & eagerly waiting for the verdict.

Rama:  Verdict? You mean knowing the fact?  Am also as curious as you are!

Babur: Yeah – to know the fact. Why are you so curious about it ?

Rama:  I want to know what is the percentage I would get..

Babur: I too have the same doubt, but we are always unsure about what these people are thinking. And the percentage really matter!

Rama:  Truly, they think we can survive with a little percentage or they give one person more percentage and one person less percentage. That really hurts the feelings.

Babur: Oh come on… Do not worry Ram

Rama:  How can I not worry Babur? By the way, what are your plans after Sep 30th? Are you planning to relocate?

Babur: Most probably. I do not like this place & anyway I always loved to go back. It all depends again on time.

Rama:  All the best Babur. It’s time for me to leave.

Babur: See you Ram

Babur & Rama were discussing about their appraisal & Babur happily relocated to his native for a new job.

Resignation Letter

I am resigning from the position Software engineer effective today. Reasons as listed below.

I am unable to work with mentally challenged people like my managers & project leaders like you.

I am severely suffering from financial constraints & the 3 % hike you gave doesn’t satisfy my telephone bill too. Also I have a lover from last month, whose telephone bill also fell into my head. That comes to around 14% of my salary, which is the least hike I expected this year.

I have the same feelings like you. You always allocate the seats next to you, to all beautiful girls & Allocate the less than average girls to my cubicle, which is making me too sick.

I do not like to waste 6 hours of meeting in a 40 hour week for various status reports. The meetings often makes me remember of my Girl friend asking me status report about my roaming in weekend.

The onshore opportunity you promised never arrived to my plate. By dreams only, I have visited 10 different countries, you have promised & gave only 4 transfers of the total 5 locations you have here. If I work for this company or you, I do not think I would work onshore & understand business(Actually it is not for understanding business, but for the money).

I also strongly assume that, if a different company is willing to offer me a 70% hike for my skill set & a designation change & for the same work, why would I stay here?. Even though it’s the same shit, I will eat it for a higher pay.

I thank you and the organization for considering me be relieved on date as per my appointment order, which would give you good credits & I Might refer you as my manager in the new company.

By the way, if you are still trying to negotiate with me for making me stay here, you are the Shameless creäture in the entire team & the world.
