"LIFE -- A reality Check" a story about some lives hovering around , each finding there way to their happiness , eventually their paths crosses each other , the story unfolds as Akira tells about her experience and what she saw around her.. Love, Pain, Loneliness, Betrayal, Friendship and LIFE when crosses each other in a single moment then it comes out as an experience and what we all call as a reality check.
I close my diary as i find the reality check of my life , i tried to sit up but i failed , the nurse came and helped me to sit supporting the backrest of the my bed. the bed sores trouble me a lot. but i don't complain. i always try to smile and make the pains feel sorry for themselves , for choosing me as their place to reside. Today i really miss the bureaucratic environment of my second home. i heard from dad , that they are coming to meet me , but do i have that much of time . sitting here at New York i can only feel that i m in the largest city of the world , when i look at the passport , otherwise it is just same as the home back in India. i never asked anything from the all mighty but today i ask for time from HIM only to meet my five friends who are eager to meet me , more than me . in my life i dont want to disappoint any person. I want to see everyone happy around me . i want to see keep my promise that i made to my friends ... the promise that i will never let them down.. never ..ever ...

The first day when I walked into the office complex , I had many complex in my mind what do what not to do , I have faced many ragging sessions (at our time it was not registered as an illegal activity) and college internal politics , but that day I was entering into a new world with many possibilities , to get honored , less in chance, and to get humiliate , which have the max chances I had many winkies in my mind , even I skipped last night's meal and break fast too
Gulping a lump in my throat I continued to walk to the gate , to my new future , I was totally in another world , from where I have to come out as the security in a harsh voice said " madam why here ?" his English made it clear that he has adapted to Darwin's theory " survival of fittest" or a self made theory of "Show off.." . I should not mind , I said to my mind , afterall he don't know me , I should expect a salute from him , every day after he gets accustomed wd me , as an employee of the company.
The guard again asked tapping on the table "madam here why?" "R.I.P English" I automatically mumbled to myself , which made the guard horribly annoyed anticipating a strange comment for him , which was obvious. But I know the environment of the city and I m new there so I don't took the risk of annoying the person whom I have to pass by every day .. I said sorry , which he eventually or intentionally got to hear , when I said it for the third time .
Theek hain theek hain .. why here .? he asked me again , and what made me tremble that time I don't know , but I in trembling hand pulled my appointment letter out from my back pack and extended it to the security guard very dumbly . With too much big rolled eyes , the security tried to read the letter , but he failed , and shouted 'meera idhar aa jaa " I peeped to see who is that meera , I wondered that she should be the security .. too , and that time I was right as I got confirmed getting a glimpse of the lady security guard ..
' kya hain .. rahaman " meera said as she stopped infront of the unnamed security but after she took his name he don't remained unnamed at all to me. Rahaman asked meera to look after what I have handed to him . going through it meera said ' madam no joining today." Haw the expression was made on my face , as I said " means I was asked to join today and you are saying no joining today ?" sweat drops built up on my temple as I feared to loose my million dollar lottery to my golden future. Meera asked me to call the contact person mentioned in the appointment letter .
I should admit that , at that time I was very nervous and frightened at the same time . I was feeling dizzy that time , and it was a mixed effect of empty stomach and nervousness I stepped to the tree with a concrete place to sit , I was walking across the road wd trembling feet . I was not noticing what is happening around me . I jerked out of my fear as a car horn blew and struck straight into my mind. "are you here on this earth .." a man in a blazer came out of the car "sorry ..' I uttered and walked the rest of my distance to the tree , I managed a sit there taking out my bottle I in hurry gulped water .. the man surely abused me for the insane behavior , but I have no interest to think about him , when my job is in danger .
Looking into my appointment letter I tried to find out the number of the contact person , but I failed to find it at the first time , I turned the pages and I found it on the last page. The company has provided the Senior HR Executive's number there, I read the name " Vatshal Singh" and the number is engraved there too . I dialed the number , correctly in my third time , as I was going to call , a friendly voice called me by name , asking how can the most out going girl of the college feel so nervous when it comes to the job
I , "Akira Sharma" was always marked as the most out going and extrovert girl of the "IMI Engineering college.." I got my life back as I saw my one year senior priyanka dixit , standing infront of me . she sat by me , and wrapping her arm around my shoulder said " I m working here for one year , and I knew that you are coming to join here today , as expected you are before time , and I took the chance to pay you back what you did with me in my final semester.
I looked up innocently to my senior as if I don't remember anything what I did to her . she smiled and clasping her arms around my neck , making me choke she asked me if I remember now , what I did in past ..coughing more than what was coming biologically to me , I admitted that I remember what I did to her .
" you better should " priyanka di left my neck , and arranging my fabrics properly she said that time you vanished my registration and I lost one hour form my exam , and if I could have a chance na , I would have cancelled your appointment , I just asked the guards to act insanely wd you , as you arrive here , so that you can atleast get to know what I felt that day , you bloody bugger priyanka without listening to me stood up and left saying , collect your visitors card from the gate and come to the fourth floor
I looked to the securities who were laughing at me , I stood up , walking to them , I wd a thud sound I placed my back pack on the table and asked for my visitors card . rahaman handed me a VID (Vistor's ID) I snatched it from his hand forgetting all the respect for him and in a very disrespect tone I asked if I have to do anything . .. instead of rahaman , another men spoke , the voice asked me to behave properly wd rahaman. I turned , my eyes meet a man in formals , he said " you should first know to behave properly then expect a service from others .." he bend down to sign on the register . rahaman and meera saluted him , he handed the car keys to rahaman and asked it to park . rahaman obeyed and ran outside the main gate. The man didn't said me anything more , he just ignored me and walked to the main premises .
I thought of concentrating on my job rather than to concentrate on the stranger co employees of mine , meera asked me to sign on the register and allowed me to enter my new destination . as asked by priyanka I took the lift to the fourth floor .
I rolled my eyes to the office building its beauty .. I stepped into a hi tech building , which had escalators, four lifts , and every thing , that one will dream to have in their working place. The lift stopped at the 4th floor and unfortunately I have to face my boss , for further progress in my work . the journey in the lift seemed to be very less, I smiled formally and thanking the lift man , I walked out from the lift , as I landed I saw the name of " Sujal Verma , Hr Manager" engraved on the name plate . I knew I have to meet this person eventually after meet vatshal singh .
As I was just a new comer there , I needed help to find out Mr.Singh .. I spotted a mini reception counter at the floor , taking out my appointment letter , I gave it to the lady , she looked at it , and then looking at me , she like checked me out from top to bottom , and then what she said is just another terrifying thing for , she said while walking away from the reception desk with my appointment letter " you have to leave today jeans are not allowed on Mondays "
" holy god !!! where I have landed , the blue blooded fully disciplined college could never got to keep Akira so formal now this professional life is going to take the revenge of the college life too ." I phewed , and tried to lean back to the reception . But the receptionist came back and said " should I invite you too come behind me girl ??" I got surprised wd the response from a receptionist, but as it was my first day I didn't reacted , I just said .. in mind " KEEP CALM AND LOVE RANBIR " .. here I want to inform you Ranbir is none other than Ranbir Kapoor .. and when ever I used to think about him my all stress are supposed to get away from me Taking a deep breath I walked wd the lady , rather I followed an arrogant over proud receptionist to where ever she is taking me.
" holy shit !!!" I uttered bit louder the lady turned and raised her eye brows , I looked down and went behind her inside the room having a name plate "Sree Sirvastava" VP ADMIN As expected whom I thought of a mere receptionist is none other than the VP ADMIN of my first company , and I just made her angry in our first meet . So miss Akira she said in a hoarse voice , and I felt like to be in a class room of my convent school,, and my class teacher is roaming around me with a stick and plank !!! plank !!! plank!!! She will blew it over my hand . I gulped a lump in the throat thinking what is going to happen .
" you know you are here before time??" madam said to me
" I know mam, actually I have never been to Delhi and I don't want to get late , I opted to come early rather to be late.." I ended anticipating an appraise from my big big big (even if I add another big it will remain less) boss . but the opposite happened , she stood up slapping the table , which echoed badly in my ears , trembling me a bit she shouted , " don't try to be smart miss . Akira I hate over smart people and even the late comers , and time means time to me neither early nor late do you get me !!!" I nodded my head tilting it to the left . she like a hungry tigress came to me shouting "DO YOU GET ME !!" suddenly the surroundings of the cabin seemed to be an army field to me and I felt like a cadet and madam as the lieutenant.. she again shouts at me before that I screamed out " YES MAM.." then she praised me like a army person only saying " good " .
She gave me my appointment letter and informed me to reach the classroom 2 dot at 11a.m and my orientation will be done there only . I like a obedient kid of class1 left the room . after coming out from the cabin of the VP ADMIN , I felt the air outside very fresh , I inhaled as much as I can .
Looking into my watch , I noted the time as 10.05 a.m . "so aki you have lot time left ." I said to myself , and started looking around to help myself for some refreshment oh yes I said , as I got the directions to the cafeteria . I walked according to the directions and in few minutes I reached the cafeteria .
'oo teri !!!" I said , and wondered if I m standing in a cafeteria or a 5 star multi cuisine restaurant . While walking inside my eyes caressed the whole arena ,and it seemed to be just wow to me, I helped myself to reach the counter with my own legs, though I dreamt of a palanquin carrying me to the counter . I asked the waiter there for the menu , he pointed to display were the menu for the day is listed up , from breakfast to dinner . I smiled looking at the menu , and cursed myself to be there for the first time , the menu has only south Indian dishes in that m which I hated the most from my early childhood even my mom is a south Indian by ethnicity . I finalized to order a cold coffee with ice cream only , and decided to take my lunch in the streets where I saw many stalls while coming to the office.
