—————Office of the Australian Client
Anika stepped in being nervous thinking about Shivaay’s words but soon gained confidence that she can handle as she is capable. The clients as expected asked her to start the presentation. Anika did her best. She gave appropriate answers to the queries put forth by the clients. The clients informed Anika that they usually don’t agree for a second set of presentation but keeping in view that the company was Oberoi Industries they agreed. However they informed her that they would let the Oberoi Industries know their decision in couple of hours and that she can leave. Anika shook hands with them and left from there taking a deep breathe.
She was happy and elated that everything went fine. She left to the office and did her works. Couple of hours passed by in a jiffy and she received a mail stating that the project was not offered to Oberoi Industries. She sat aghast while tears ran down her cheeks involuntarily. She was not sad because she would lose the job as said by Shivaay. She was deeply hurt because her hardwork didn’t pay off.
Feeling sorry for herself, she stepped into Shivaay’s cabin after seeking permission
‘’Welcome Ms.Anika…so ready to face the consequence?’’ SSO spoke rather in a taunting way
She couldn’t reply
‘’I am eager to listen to you’’
‘’I have nothing to say except that, I had put in my 200 % effort for the presentation’’ Anika explained.
‘’Great. Wait for a couple of minutes to take your termination letter.’’ He spoke curtly and ordered his assistant to bring the termination letter of Anika to him.
His Assistant came and handed over the papers to him and left from there.
‘’Here as per our deal naah as per our challenge your termination letter and don’t worry I will send a personalised mail to every company that you are good for nothing and that for their benefit they may not take you as an employee..so GOOD BYE Ms.Anika Tri I mean Ms Anika Chaturvedi’’
Anika didn’t utter any word and turned , packed up her things and left from there. she promised herself that no matter what she wouldn’t shed a single tear. She sat down near the sea shore dejected and started thinking about her future. The weather changed it’s course forecasting a heavy storm exactly like the storm that was going inside Anika’s heart. The papers in the carton which Anika brought started to fly away and Anika didn’t pay any attention.
A Lady picked up all the papers and came to her, and called her ‘’Excuse me mam…’’ hearing no response, she put her hand over her shoulder and slightly shaked her
‘’Haan…’’ Anika looked at her
‘’your papers’’ the lady spoke
‘’Papers…yeah…these papers are mine’’ Anika replied
The lady smiled and said ‘’I know…these are yours …I saw them flying away from the carton beside you and collected almost all of them and here you go with these’’
‘’thank you…thank you so much’’ Anika replied whole heartedly but with a passive smile
‘’you look good when you smile. I am sure you are in some trouble and might be thinking about what to do further. But you know what my mom says sometimes you should leave all the troubles to him’’ she spoke pointing her finger towards sky
Anika looked at sky and spoke ‘’Few things and few peoples destiny even he cannot change. Anyways lets forget this..thank you once again. And if I can be of any help to you…please let me know, so that I can return your favour’’
‘’Actually yes…I mean sorry..i really need help and you seem to be a good person..i am looking for a place to stay for few days..a PG sort…if you can possibly help me’’ the lady said
‘’Sure …’’ Anika thought for a while and said ‘’if you have no problem , you can stay in my house …I and my younger brother stay there and it’s at a good location…’’
‘’younger brother..i mean..i prefer ladies only PG’’ she spoke being uncomfortable
‘’I can understand your worries. My younger brother is school going kid..so you need not worry…you can look at the place and if you find it good and as per your requirement you can stay with us. Rest all things we can decide later’’ Anika explained
‘’Sure…can we see it now?’’ the lady asked
‘’yeah …sure’’ Anika replied and called an auto
Being seated in the auto : ‘’I am Anika ..’’
‘’Anika…like really your name is Anika?’’ the lady exclaimed
‘’yes…why are you surprised?’’
‘’Actually..My …nothing…I am Gauri…Gauri Kumari Sharma from Bareilly’’ the lady replied
‘’Gauri….Gauri’’ Anika took her name twice
Anika TAM ‘’ Gauri…I know it’s a very common name..but why do I feel so connected when this girl took her name….these days who ever I am meeting, i feel I am related to them..first Omkara, Priyanka even Shivaay and now Gauri…what’s wrong with me?’’
Gauri TAM ‘’Anika…Is she my didi? Ohh no it can’t be or it might be…maa said me that I had an elder sister by name Anika…is she the one..she is so sweet..and my sister would also be the same age this Didi…didi !!! involuntarily I am calling her didi…hey Shankar ji..let the house meet all my requirements , and let this didi be my Anika didi…I would forever be greatful to you….i would love to get connected with my long last sister…’’
Both came out of their thoughts and looked at each other…thinking of starting a conversation
‘’Ms. Gauri …Are you new to Mumbai?’’
‘’ji Didi..i mean Ms.Anika’’
‘’If you don’t mind can I ask you why have you come to Mumbai?’’
‘’I got a Job in Oberoi Industries for the post of an architect..so I am here’’
‘’oberoi Industries’’ Anika’s eyes widened in surprise
‘’yeah ..Oberoi Industries…you might already know, how big the company is ..i didn’t want to give a miss to such job offer so came here’’
‘’great…but as far as I know, they provide accommodation to most of their employees who are not from Mumbai or new to Mumbai’’
‘’yeah true..but my case is different…for first 6 months I am a contract employee and the accommodation rule doesn’t apply to me…based on my work they will decide to make me permanent or continue on a contract basis …so till I become permanent and they provide me accommodation, I am planning to stay in PG’’ Gauri cleared all doubts of Anika
Anika TAM ‘’I am ousted today and she joined today. Hope her Journey becomes successful unlike me’’
While talking they reached Anika’s house..Gauri looked at the house and instantly liked it..She agreed to stay as a tenant…they decided to complete all the formalities in couple of days and then Gauri would come and stay. They agreed and sat down to have tea.
Priyanka stormed into Shivaay’s room with anger at her peaks. Shivaay looked at her in surprise as well as shock.
‘’Prinku..why are you angry?’’ Shivaay questioned being tensed
‘’now I cannot be angry also. This is what you are trying to say Shivaay bhayya?’’
‘’Prinku ..i didn’t mean so’’
‘’you have not felt the need to let me or Om bhayya know that you terminated Anika from the job?’’ She put forth her point with clarity
‘’I always thought you would never deny my decision’’
‘’true..we trust you more than God…but this time you are wrong bhayya. I got to know about your challenge to her. I also got to know that she did her best to get the deal to our company. She worked really hard bhayya and we just didn’t recognise her efforts’’ Prinku spoke disheartened
‘’Om lost the contract because of Anika…and I can never forgive her for that’’
‘’No ..Om bhayya didn’t lose the contract because of Anika..we lost the contract because the company already had decided to give the deal to our rivals. This project , presentations were just for name sake…there was a mutual understanding between both the parties even before the clients came to India…so how in hell does Anika be blamed?’’
‘’How do you know all these?’’
‘’because I researched why we lost the contract. when you got the call from house..Rudy also called me. I knew you will attend Om bhayya , so I contacted all known sources about how the deal got cancelled and here are the proofs of their agreements.’’ She handed the papers to Shivaay
Shivaay studied the papers that Prinku handed over and stood dumbstruck
‘’Shivaay bhayya..i have something else to say. I know Om bhayya’s problem. But he has to overcome it on his own. We have done enough till now and I strongly feel it is time he comes out of his own. You or our family cannot blame anyone or hold anyone responsible for his issues. With what you have done to Anika, how will you or how can you apologise. You terminated her without knowing truth and as far as I understood she will never come back. I am thankful enough to you that you didn’t yet send any mails about her being a non-performer to anyother companies. I request you not to do so. Being a girl / women I myself can’t take this humiliation, God knows how she is handling her state. I am going to her to apologise..if you wish you can also come along..here is her house address’’ Priyanka left from there being upset
Shivaay being Shivaay stood there….
