Nanhe’s sisters’ wedding is scheduled next week. But he is so unlucky that he would reach only couple of days before the marriage.
Reason: He is not getting leave from the office.
Few days before when he told his boss that he will take leave; his boss readily agreed but then days before she told that he won’t be able to get leave before 30th. This was because, a big and critical release is scheduled on 5th and the team will require support late night. Nanhe was very upset on this and requested to approve leave. But then in this time of recession, you need to be very careful before pushing things. Right?
Nanhe took his disappointment in his stride. Traditionally, a brother plays huge part in sister’s wedding but not Nanhe…. Well this is part and parcel of life!!!
Nanhe was asked to come on Saturday’s and public holidays. For last couple of week, frustration has started to creep in. Mainly because he was not having that much work. Last week he has filled more than 15 hours of idle time in his timesheet. Though he is available for full time and does not leaves his place; yet fill the idle time in timesheet. This was the boss told him. While the boss must be enjoying weekends with family, Nanhe is coming to office; sitting for 6-8 hours and leaving without doing any work. While his teammate will wonder why is he coming when their is not much work for him at this point of time. Yesterday, this happened for continuously third week.
As Nanhe was staring his PC; he was just getting frustrated. He was supposed to leave for wedding on Saturday but he was asked to work. He came to office and was doing work. What work??

At a time when whole family of Nanhe is busy with preparation for wedding and slogging in the heat, Nanhe has so much “work”@office. A sister’s wedding is once in a lifetime and this release could have been handled by his boss as well. But she has “too many problems” at home. She is making him realize that she will have to slog for 4 days when Nanhe will not be there. Nanhe was so stymied that he was telling his friend,
“Bhenchod bola that ki kaam hai kaam hai to leave nahi milegi. Yahan aa kar sirf hilane ka kaam kar raha hoon. Aaj main nikal gaya hota to kam se kam 27th ka function to attend kar paata. Wo saali door rehti hai to mera problem hai kya. Ghar mein ghanta problem hai uske. Sab bahene thonk rahi hai m****chod. Itna yaha aa kar marao aur uske baad bharo Idle time. Main to maarne waala hoon uski. Naukri is not important than family. Uski Maa ka………. Kaam ho to samjhh mein aata hai but sirf apne faayde aur aaraam ke liye wo mujhe istemaal kar rahi hai. R****”
It is very true that his boss should have shown this much consideration that this is his real sister’s wedding.
Now he will reach home as the “Chief-Guest”.
He is so bummed out thinking that at a time when his father is looking for helping hand, he is doing nothing and is just watching all this helplessly. He has simmering anger within him and I just hope that he is able to control that else…
But whatever be the case this has given him a lesson that be very political and diplomatic in office. That is the only way out else you will be exploited always……………
