Raghu has been working in a Manufacturing company, specialized in exports, as Manager Accounts. The Factory is in a far off place, and there is no proper transport facility. The company has provided transport facility to its employees at fixed timings… Also some of the employees have their own vehicles and they come and go on their own. Raghu is very strict in following the rules and regulations of the company… He always thinks of company’s interest… Because of this, he has earned the wrath of the other managers in the company… Because he is in accounts and is a strong personality, the other managers couldn’t do anything to him… Whenever they are at cross roads with Raghu, they vent out their frustration on Raghu’s subordinates… Raghu is a jolly going person… He treats all his subordinates equally… He mingles with them freely and helps them out both officially and personally… He takes his team mates from the office-Residence in his vehicle as the company transport leaves only at a specific timing… Even if he has to travel 4/5 kms extra, he ensures that he drops his subordinates at their residence and goes back to home… He considers his team as his family… He can digest anybody criticizing him, but not his team or his department… He will charge like a bull for fight… Mrs. Bhama, a lady, is one of his team mates… She is the only lady in his department and youngest… Since being a lady and a typical village girl, Raghu takes care of her… Raghu knows about Bhama’s family, husband etc… Raghu ensures she is being picked up and dropped properly… Raghu and Balu have their own vehicles in his department… Now Balu is also a nice guy… Either of them drops Bhama daily at her residence… One day, while having lunch together Raghu asked people who are their friends in the Office… Each one of them gave various names… When Bhama’s turn came she turned around and said… “I don’t have any friends here… All are my colleagues”… Raghu was taken back… He couldn’t control himself… He asked her, “You don’t have any friends?”… For which she coolly replies “No, all are just colleagues… With friends you share everything, but with colleagues you don’t”… Raghu was thinking himself… Every day Bhama used to check with Raghu then with Balu, what time they leave right royally… They also without any hesitation drop her at her residence, which is 4 kms beyond their residence and has to travel 30-45 mts in the traffic… If she is just a colleague, why should he spend the extra time and energy to drop her at her residence…? Why he should help them personally…. Cheenu is another gentleman of the team. He is an experienced person and has suffered a lot in personally and come up in life… Cheenu coolly said, come-on sir, she doesn’t know what is world…. Don’t take her words seriously…She is inexperienced…. Once she understands, then she will know the value… Raghu still wonders… Whether this girl is innocent and doesn’t know the world or taking advantage of his soft corner… Or is there something really difference between the colleague and friend which he couldn’t understand…. Now what do you all say……….
