Friends posting the next episode. Episode 34: Vilas got a spark in his face, “Did she really came over here to see you?” Abhishek: “Hello, she came just for consultation and her leg is completely fine now” He wanted to tease Vilas and said, “She even enquired about you”. Vilas face brightened and he asked, “Really, did she enquired about me?” Abhishek laughed a loud, “hey, I was joking and you were serious. She just came to check her wounded leg for consultation. She is fine now buddy. But I never thought you would be still thinking about her.” Vilas mind became restless as though he wanted to forget her thoughts from his mind, she is reminded again to him. Without uttering a word, he went outside the balcony to check and she seems to have left and no sign of her. Abhishek: “Come on Vilas, I was joking and you seem to be serious. What’s happening around you buddy” Vilas: “No Abhi, I don’t know and he did not have an answer for him.”, he tried to divert the topic and asked, “So, how was your trip to mahabaleshwar? Hope you enjoyed it?” Abhishek: “Hmm, Mine was good, but you are not good, trying to change the topic” Vilas: “So Aaruchi surprised you buddy, enjoyed, Climate, Hope it was a lovely romantic trip” Abhishek mood was changed, “Hmm… Yes da, it was a nice weekend. I had nice time, full of romance, hugs, kisses…” and he stopped, “Hey this is my hospital. Come on, you are changing my mood.” Vilas: “Ok.. Ok.. It’s between friends and I agree, we should also follow our ethics in our hospitals.” When Sister came over there, Vilas asked her to get the patients register from reception and Abhi got puzzled. She got the details and Vilas immediately took the Patients list and noted the number provided against Chandrika. Abhi: “Vilas, what are you in to? You don’t know who she is? You say you would be marrying Suchi? Your mom has high hopes on you? You are now getting a number of a girl to chase her?” and before he stopped Vilas kept his index finger on his mouth and stopped Abhi. Vilas: “Don’t know Abhi, let see where this go? I stopped thinking about her and now mind got a new thought to think about her again.” Abhi: “Then I have surprise for you buddy”, He took a parcel cover from his draw and put it on the table. He continued, “These are the anklets of that girl which was left in that hospital in Mumbai and they were gold. They gave it to me before I left Mumbai. I completely forgot to give this to her when she came now. If you want, you can give this to her and find a reason to meet her.” Vilas face brightened, “hey dude, How come you get such ideas. Thanks a lot, da” Abhi: “I am your friend and wanted to help you out. See we are notable doctors in the city. So, please, take this as a chance and you need to decide on what you actually need. Hope you understand.” Vilas did not know what to respond for him. Abhi continued, “There are lots of hopes and you should be clear on what you need dude. This is just a chance I give to you. I believe she should be from a really rich background so that she has not even cared to look out for his golden anklets and that too pair of two. Since, it was our reference in Mumbai, they sent it to me by courier. Now, I am giving this chance to you to give it and clear out what is in your mind.” Vilas: “I understand it well. I will clarify myself soon” and he started. Abhi: “You need the anklets or not or shall I ask the receptionist to call them.” Vilas thought for a moment, “Hmm.. give it buddy. I shall call u later” and he started from his clinic. Abhi got a call and he excused for a moment. Vilas opened the parcel to see the anklets. He reminded of their car ride from hotel to hospital. He took her legs and kept it on his legs in the car. She was quiet and was helpless and wrinkled her legs with the anklets moving due to her action. He finally reminded their travel to airport and though she reminded that she knows him yet she did not utter a word until the last moment they parted from the airport. He thought how decent she was and why he is behaving like this. He took a pic of the anklets and closed the parcel. Abhi was also back by then and he told, “no buddy, you please give it through the reception person. It won’t be good if I give it back and we should look at our standard too. Abhi smiled, “hmm... you understood it now. Anyway, I will take care. I should also have thought of it before giving it to you. “Abhi’s appointment to his patients needs to be continued and Vilas bid bye to him and left. Vidhya was early to office on that day and she wanted to explore through the documentation of her project requirements and she would be able to check them from the client site alone. While she was noting some points, she got a ping in his system “hi”. She checked to see that it was from Dilip, Sindhu’s Cousin. He did not respond earlier and after a week, he is now responding back is what she thought to herself. She was looking for someone to help her out with the issues she was facing and she thought he is the saviour for her amidst of the political team she was in. Each one is like a planet and lacked co ordination and also competition in pulling other legs. There was a shuffling of team members and now Vandana and Vicky, her batch mates has joined in her Project. Sindhu hates them by their behaviour itself and advise Vidhya to stay away from them. Vidhya will convince herself that people are like that and there is nothing she can do. Vidya responded back with a “hi” message Dilip: “Hi, you only pinged me” Vidya: “yes, I had pinged you a week ago.” Dilip: “So what, I responded now. What is it about? How can I help you” Vidya did not expect such a blunt reply from him and she did not know what to respond. There was a pause and he replied back, “Hello, you had pinged me and I think you have reached a wrong person.” Vidhya: “No… I am Vidhya and am Sindhu’s friend, and she referred you for help” Dilip: “Which Sindhu?” Vidhya was clueless and her timid nature made her to take a step back. Yet, her inner conscience told her, “you should change Vidhya. How long you are going to be like this, by not taking any initiative and stopping yourselves in moving further” Vidhya: “Sindhu is my friend and I work in Chennai office. She said, she is your cousin and referred me to contact you for some help” Dilip: “Oh, Sindhuja Akka. Fine. Yes, how can I help you?” Now Vidhya was relieved a bit that he finally understood and continued. Vidhya: “I am in to the Wealth Project Oasis and these requirements documentation is at very high level. But I was told that the expectation from the client is too high. From the product point of view, I know the basic tables and how to input transactions. Correlating everything in to the product to arrive at solution is what is making me sick”, she typed in a single stretch. There was no response, she could sense that he was typing on the other hand, waited for a moment, then retyped, but there received no answer. Vidhya paused for a moment, “Are you there? Sindhu gave me very high hopes about you.” Dilip’s response was just a Smiley. Vidhya: “I am thinking you as my saviour and she told me that I can rely on you for any help” Dilip’s response was a teeth widened smiley. Vidhya: “I lack understanding in few basics which is stopping me from moving further.” Dilip responded again with a laughing Smiley and Vidhya now lost her cool. Vidhya: “Hello, Can you help me or not?”, she lost her temper in her words. Dilip responded with a sorry Smiley, “Ok… No worries. How can I help you with the time zone and with whatever you say, I think you should be taught from very much level of basics.” Vidhya got an embarrassment feel and felt humiliated by those words. She cursed herself for her position and break let her to lag where she is. Though she was good in academics, any practical exposure in project and real life would help and she cursed herself for that. She don’t want to continue with his discussion further. Vidhya: “That’s ok. I will come back to you later.” And closed the chat window. She cursed herself for her position and looked into the documentation. Though she was looking into the screen as if she was reading, everything looked Greek and latin for her. Vidhya’s inner fear on the subject was increasing and she called Sindhu. Sindhu cut the call immediately and it added disturbance to her mind as Sindhu was her only hope. She just lied on her desk not knowing what to do. She was shaken by the hit on both her shoulders.
