Thanks Thanks Sachini. I'm happy at the welcome received for Jai's family. Good to hear your views about Harini. Will be posting the next chapter now. Good day.
Oh no..not her again,my mind voice said.
I was extra careful while opening my pen, signing for the card and I stood at a distance from her.
‘Name’ she asked
‘I couldn’t find the card..’ she mumbled.
‘Harini, give it to him. Let him find out.’ Dev said.
After minutes of searching, Dev found my card.
‘This is the issue. In photograph you look years younger. Is this not your brother?’ he asked.
‘That’s me..’ I grabbed the card from him.
I handed over rest of card to her, and said loudly ‘Thankfully no incidents this time.’
Dev who suddenly got interested in whole thing asked ‘So there is a history between you two?’
I took him to cafeteria near by and explained the incidents.
‘This is how they show in movies. Suddenly the characters will fall in love.’ He started laughing.
‘Are you in Pre-sales team is it? How is the team?’ I asked trying to change the topic.
‘Yes, yes. Team is cool, especially Rajib. How do you find yours?’ he asked.
‘This team is quite formal and rigid. I’m not sure how will I survive. No one even smiles.’ I cribbed.
I’m placed in a new product development team which is headed by ORK. No one even knows his full name. Seems if he applies for a strict school principal role, he will win hands down. I’m several levels under his hierarchy, so as long as we don’t cross path it should be fine.
‘They would need a person like you. Take it as challenge. Think if you survive in a team like that, you can survive anywhere.’ Dev advised.
I’m increasingly growing fond of Dev. He seems genuine and very balanced person. He is elder to me by six years as he did MBA with work experience and in office hierarchy two levels senior to me.
‘Let’s go. Meet you at lunch.’ I said.
When I entered the unit, an old man who looked around 5’1 in height was standing near by desk. After wrapping conversation with the person next to me, he asked
‘Where were you young man? Didn’t see you in desk for around twenty minutes?’ he asked.
‘Coffee Break ‘ I replied though the person sitting opposite to me was signaling something.
‘Break time is just fifteen minutes and no rolling of your full sleeves shirt here.’he said sternly.
‘This place is very hot, I don’t know how others are wearing full sleeves in this weather.’ I replied.
He looked at me as if he is watching a circus animal ‘Why don’t you take a survey of how others are managing here? Alumnus of a prestigious B-school and don’t even know the basic manners ’ He said.
You are making a clear impression Srikanth, what a start.
‘Who was that?’ I asked the person next to me.
‘That’s ORK. Never ever talk back to him. He has enormous memory power and will store your conversations for future reference.’ He said.
‘oh he is ORK?’ I wondered how he manages to keep entire team in terror.
I left office around seven. Post getting details from security anna that dad is not with any visitors, I entered house through front gate. When I reached home, my younger brother, Sriram was staring at laptop as if that will make it work.
‘Another code of yours ran into problem?’ I asked. He was aiming to do MBA. Somehow as part of final year project for his college, he and his friend started developing an app for college students, which became a huge hit in his college. His college management asked them to add some features post which they have assured to buy the product.
‘No, planning of giving the long pending walkthrough to dad, who promised to sit with me now.’ He said.
‘Oh..All the best’
As a chairman of the company, dad has to travel frequently and at times I don’t get to see him for weeks together.
‘How are you finding the office Srikanth?’ my dad asked. He appeared fresh and was balancing himself with the walking stick. Dad had an accident last year, post which he is unable to walk without support.
‘What team have you pushed me into dad? That person ORK shouted at me for rolling my sleeves, no one even smiles in the team….’I vented out.
‘ORK might be strict ,but he is visionary and delivers excellent results. And do you really want to discuss why I placed you there?’ he asked.
‘No.’ I replied hastily. That’s the last thing I want to do, knowing dad will trace it back to why I chose to join Evolution.
‘Fair enough. Meet you at dinner.’ He said summoning Sriram to follow him into his office room.
Vivaan , my youngest brother called me for a swim. Post our swimming session, I was resting in my room where Vivaan came and asked me to help him with campaign for sports leader election. We started working on his speech which he has to deliver in school assembly next week.
‘Dinner time, Srikanth. Long since all of us sat for dinner.’ Priya said knocking my door. Priya is my step mother. She runs a bakery now and supporting a NGO through it.
We all ate discussing what is happening in each other’s life. Vivaan is talking about upcoming sports leader election. Sriram was talking about marketing his app in other colleges. Priya who expanded her bakery recently was discussing about her plans to recruit a manager. Dad sounded happy about completing a Government project on time based on which Evolution is favorable vendor for upcoming projects.
‘Anything interesting at your side, Srikanth Apart from rant about ORK? Dad asked.
‘Nothing much..Yeah one of my batchmate is cool and I could see us getting closer.’ I said thinking about Dev.
‘What’s her name da? Sriram asked.
‘No..I meant friendship. His name is Dev.’ I briefed them about Dev.
‘I was imagining something else for a minute.’ Sriram winked at me.
‘ Not a chance’ I said firmly.
I closed my eyes. I’m afraid of starting a relationship and seeing it getting broke.
