His legs were still trembling as he held back himself outside the cabin. He was sweating profusely and his heart beat was raising with every passing second. He was confident and nervous at the same time. He was confident as he cleared the previous rounds, yet he had faced similar situations before and the outcome was not as he desired.
Tej Sharma, Computer science Engineer was in the hunt for a job which is a very herculean task considering living in India where nearly 40% of the population are engineers. He was in search for the job from the past 2 years and still failed at every attempt. He had appeared for nearly hundred interviews but never made it through.
As the lady at the reception desk announced that he should go next, he became more nervous yet he finally made up the courage to go and face the interview. As he entered the room following her orders, he saw two men waiting for him. One seemed very old and experienced as he could see grey hair all over his head and the other looked young and had a natural glow on his face. Both of them welcomed him.
Good morning. Said the old guy.
Good morning sir. He replied back.
So how are you doing this fine day? asked the young guy.
I am doing well sir, thank you. He replied.
So can you introduce yourself? the old guy asked.
Sir, my name is Tej Sharma. I completed my engineering at Rockford college of engineering. I was born and brought up in Bangalore.Im every keen in phrasing poems and publishing it on my blog. he replied
You have done well in your studies , why arent you placed from campus yet? asked the senior guy gazing at the resume.
Noo sir, the college I passed from is considered to be one of the lowest ranked colleges in Bangalore so percentage of companies visiting was scarce. We had to go to other colleges for placements and naturally very few people got placed. he replied.
What are your strengths and weaknesses? the young guy asked.
Sir I am very confident in life. I am also very optimistic and I never lose hope no matter what happens in life. Given any problem I always approach in a positive way and ignore the complexity involved. My only weakness is I am workaholic and if I dont finish the work on time , I lose the temper I tend to work day and night. He replied very confidently.
So Where do you see yourself in 5 years? asked the young guy.
Sir I can see myself sitting in your place.
Well Mr.Sharma we have seen in your performance and skills in the previous rounds. I have to say you have done extremely well and I am happy to say that you are hired. said the grey haired guy.
Hearing the promising word hired Tej could not control his emotions. A huge bright smile resided on his face and was on top of the world.
Both of them stood up and congratulated him.
Well you were selected before this round itself. This was just a mere formality and I have very high hopes on you, I wish you live up to it. Said the old guy.
Thank you sir, I will make sure I do my best and give my 100% said Tej
As he left the cabin he was so happy that there were tears of happiness which rolled down as he left the room. He was waiting to convey the satisfying news to his mother.
He immediately fleed the office. He was excited and rushed home with a box of sweets to inform his mother about the pleasing news. He rang the bell and awaited for his mother to open the door. As his mother opened the door, she could spot a huge bright smile on her sons face.
What happened in the interview? asked his mother.
He immediately hugged her and said Ma, I finally got the job.
Both of them shed tears of joy in unison. There was happiness in each and every corner of the house. They hailed from a low class family and his mother was the only working member of the house. He had lost his dad at the age of two, and his mom was the one who brought him up by working as a maid. They had seen all the difficulties and problems in life. Now it was their moment of happiness and they were thrilled as they could finally see their lives gloom up.
Ma you quit your job today itself. You never have to work as a maid in anyones house again.
'Ill earn well and take care of you. He said.
Tears kept rolling down her eyes in happiness. Like usual there was tears in her eyes , but this time it was of mere happiness. She could dream of their future in lightheartedness.
Ok ,Go to Shiva temple and take blessings from god. She said.
Noo ma, Ill go later ,Im too tired from the interview. He replied.
Noo beta, the temple will close in a while . Please go and get his blessings for everything to go fine. She said.
Ma , Ill go anyways , but I dont the persume his presence .Im going just for you.
Ya , but always remember , life is a balance of pleasing things and struggles. We should balance them in honor and never blame God or anyone for it.
Okay ma fine dont worry I will go. He stormed in anger and left immediately in his red bike
He reached one of the roads in Tilak nagar. As he rode , he maintained his speed to prevent any sort of disaster. Previous rains ruined the roads and they were all in vain. As he hitched a ride ,the vehicle skid and drifted , suddenly he fell on the road . Meanwhile , before he could realize and get up, he saw a huge lorry speeding his way. He pushed himself up , but before he could do so the lorry rode over his body and his body split into two. The lorry driver didnt bother to stop even after creating such a blunder . His body was split into two and he was growling in pain. Terror-striken , he could see his lower body split into two and startled in pain. He could not comfront the pain and was shouting at the top of his voice for help. Even after his body splitting into two, he was still alive. Immediately gathered the crowd. He was lying in a pool of blood and was pleading for help. But no one came forward for help and let him helplessly die.He kept weeping Please help me, I have to live. I cannot die, I cant let my mother suffer.
He could feel his entire dream vanishing and he could not do anything about it. He pushed hard to move but without his legs , it was impossible. He tried to slide himself , but everything went in vain . He kept shouting people for help. He was still alive, 30 minutes passed by and still no one came forward. Every second passed by , he felt weaker and weaker. Instantly came many news channels to capture the rare footage. He kept pleading for help , even the news channels were busy capturing him.Finally one of the reporters made a call to the ambulance and it arrived quickly. Abruptly they placed both the halves of his body in the ambulance ,but it was too late and he breathed his last. The doctors in the ambulance tried hard to sustain him , but it all went hindered.
Doctor, please donate my eyes. he said and breathed his last.
Even though he saw the cruelty of people his last words were to donate his eyes. He still wanted to make sure that even after he is dead he could help people in realizing their dreams. The eyes which saw a million dreams could not see them come true. If someone in the crowd handed a help , he would pursue his dreams. His whole life came to an end. The day which was supposed to be their best day turned out to be the worst day of their life. All the happiness which prevailed in their house were turned into sorrow yet again. One phone call would have made such a difference to his life. The hopes of his mother which she carried all these years would have finally come true. We dont care , unless its our own family member. None could feel and sense the tears of his mother .They couldnt apperceivate his dreams . We are selfish and that remains. His mother presumed in god,but even god could not defend his fate. Everyone standing there had an opportunity to change the lives of a family but none regarded in doing so.
This makes me wonder whether godhood still exists?
Or more extensively are we still humans?
