6 MONTHS AGO
It was night and as usual i was in a club hoping to try my luck. I went to the reception. The receptionist was a guy for the first time. "Excuse me can i get to meet the owner of the club. This is my demo tape..."
I was about to continue when i saw some guy nicely dressed talking politely with the customers and moving his hands as if telling them to have their seats. I, at once asked at the reception, "Who is he?"
"He is Mr.Shergill. He is the manager of this club"
"Is that true? Can i get to meet him?"
"Yes sure. But u will have to wait till the club gets closed. Mr.Shergill meets the freshers only after his work"
"Oh oh .. thats not a problem...i ll wait.." I smiled at him and he smiled back at me though it looked a little weird.
It had been almost 3 hrs i had been waiting for Mr.Shergill. Though atlast i saw him coming out of the club. But to my surprise, the guy at the reception and all those customers i saw him talking with were along with him. I didnt care that though. What i wanted was to give him my tape and do my job. I rushed towards him and put my hands forwards.
"Hello Mr.Shergill. I m Gunjan Bhushan. I have come to knw that u r the manager of this club. I request u to pls take my demo tape and listen it at least once. I will appreciate if u let the singers at ur club sing my songs." I just went on in a single breath and handed my demo tape to him. Mr.Shergill ofcourse looked a little surprised. He looked at his friends behind, specially the guy at the reception and they both had a smile. I didnt understand what was going on between them though i thought something was fishy. However Mr.Shergill broke the silence. "You guys please carry on. I did like to talk with Ms.Bhushan alone"
i was happy that he was taking this seriously.
"So u want me to make the singers at the club sing the songs for u"
"Ah ... yes... i hope thats not too hard..."
"Oh no ... dont worry ... i can do that"
"Thank you so much Mr.Shergill"
I was so happy that at last everything was working out but again the happiness was short lived. A fat man came out of the club and started shouting at Mr.Shergill.
"Samrat .. go home .. otherwise i ll kick u out of here... i dont want u to be late tomorrow ... u wont get ur pay this month if u are late once again" and he went away. But i was shocked and looked at "Samrat".
"Well ...I m Samrat Shergill ...that man u saw is the manager of the club ... i m just an assistant to the waiters in this club"
I looked at him for a while and started walking off with anger..
"Look i m sorry Gunjan ... i didnt mean to do any loss .. it was just a joke .. "
"A joke? Yeh right a joke ... and thats what i dont like Mr.Shergill"
"Please stop Gunjan .. it wasnt my fault .. my friend started ..."
"Yes so u had to complete it..."
"Look but still i m saying i m sorry ..." He stopped and turned me.
"Please stop following me"
"I wont until u forgive me ..."
He was true to what he said he kept on following me for 10 minutes.
"Ok i forgive u .. now go home and dont be late tomorrow otherwise u wont get ur pay" I laughed at him and he laughed back at me.
Maybe the first meeting was enough to develop a tentative friendship between us. However I reached home and 2 more weeks passed and i realized that all my money was getting over. I had still done great loss. This is where i went on crushing my own dreams with my own hands.
