Hero is a software engineer.his name is Sanskar,. He does not have a life worth speaking of.He spends eighteen hours a day in the office working and browsing the net.
Heroine is a software engineer in the same company.her name Swara. She does not have a life either. She spends eight hours in front of her PC?, thirteen hour’s in front of the TV? and the remaining, sleeping.?
One day, Sanskar meets Swara in a staff meeting. They argue endlessly about the insanity of Microsoft applications.. especially Outlook 2003.
Couple of such fights later,
Swara is found drinking coffee with Sanskar Office canteen☕
“What is life?” asks the Sanskar looking at the vacuum right above her head.
“I’ve been wondering too.” sighs the Swara.
“Why are we fighting over Outlook 2003?”Sanskar drinks his black coffee.
“And why are we not talking about Lotus NOtes” Swara sips her Latte.
Sanskar shakes his head. “It’s not about software products. It is a bout life. I guess life is much bigger than outlook 2003.”
Swara nods. “I think it is. I am not sure though. Do you know that Microsoft has come up with a fix to that bug you’ve been using to prove Outlook is a worthless piece of garbage?”
“Swara,”? Sanskar is now determined, “From this moment onwards, I am not discussing anything remotely related to software.”
“Fine Sanskar,” says Swara, “Good bye then.”?
Sanskar then returns all the Sybase manuals to the library and rents out
“how to live a life?”Swara meanwhile gets into an altercation with the Laksh(villain) ?during a conversation on SharePoint server.
Laksh vows to format the hard disk of the Swara. Swara takes her PC and runs away from the cubicle trying to escape from the Swara’s evil intentions.
Since it is nightshift, no one comes to her rescue.
Sanskar, who has been reading “how to live a life” very seriously, suddenly finds out that he loves the Swara? as much as he used to love Tetris.
So Sanskar messages? Swara on Yahoo Instant messenger. But there is no reply. He does not understand it. He knows that the Swara is supposed to be in night shift.
What is she doing in Night shift if not on Yahoo Instant Messenger? As far as he know that is what people are supposed to do in night shift.
He senses trouble. He runs barefooted on the Information Superhighway and reaches office just in time to see the Laksh snatch the PC ?out of her hands and type the command?
When his fingers get to the “Enter” key, Sanskar delivers the killer punch? on Laksh’s face.
Laksh is thrown back. But in the process he manages to press the Enter key…?
The world comes to a standstill. The sky roars. The Rain pours. Swara breaks down. Villain is on cloud nine.
But our Sanskar isn’t sad?. He is smiling?. Laksh cannot understand.
Hero then says,
“Lalsh, You should learn DOS properly. Your grave mistake…”.
He shows the monitor go Laksh. The DOS command prompt says
“Are you sure?”.
It is waiting for a “Y” to commence the formatting operation. He then simply presses”N”.
Laksh cries? in frustration “Nooooooo” and charges like a bull.
Then follows a lengthy fight?? Swara meanwhile calls the police? and they cone right after hero beats the Laksh to pulp.
Without asking any questions, the police? understand who is hero ?and who is villain ?and take him into custody.
Swara, tears in her eyes, takes her PC, switches it on and jumps with joy? when she finds her favorite Calvin and Hobbs collection in tact in her C drive.
“You saved my data” she exclaims.
“No, you saved it yourself.” he says.
“No.. Jesus saves. I don’t” she cries.
“Nothing happened na.” He consoles.
“Let us get married?” she sheds some more tears, “I want someone by my side to protect the Calvin and Hobbs collection on my PC”.
“I love you Swara” says Sanskar.
“I love you Sanskar” says Swara.
“So you agree that Outlook 2003 is a bad product”.
“No I don’t. Why not we talk about Lotus nOtes?”
