I settled down on my table , Desai sir was not there , I tried his number twice , but the automated voice recorded by the telecom service said that his number is out of reach, I have an idea that Desai sir wanted me to visit the departments , a surprise visit . I have chosen 4 departments already for the surprise visit , but I need to have Desai sir with me … so I had nothing to do , other than to wait for him.
As I was wandering around the cabin , there was a knock at the door , I turned and said " Come in …"
" hi …' vikram came in .. with some files in his hand … "good morning he wished …" I reciprocated …
" just meet ram , he offered himself lunch from you ??" vikram looked surprised ..
' no" I said and added that I was the one to offer him coffee as a token of thanks to make me understudy of Desai Sir , and when I mentioned my idea about offering him lunch first , he turned the offer to lunch …
" that means ram invited himself .. and priya , ram is happy , I saw this peaceful smile in his face after a long time ..thanks for helping him out …" vikram sat in front of me placing the files on the table ..
" that's ok .." I looked at the files , " but …" I requested , " don't tell about these lunch and coffee to neha .. plz .. she is damn against this … and I m not helping ram kapoor , he is a good man , rather gentleman , I m just trying to change his perspective way to look at the world … I just want to make him believe that this world is not so ugly , what his eyes used to see.."
" thank you priya … someone for the first time thought for my friend not for his property …. I don't know the future priya ,but I will be happiest person on this earth if I see you and ram together in future …" vikram smiled ..
' I don't think so vikram but …." I stopped … and with a sigh I changed the topic to Desai Sir , asking vikram about his where abouts …
' oh !! yes .. sorry …" vikram said , that Desai sir is not coming that day , he is off to Goa for some new acquisition .. I was surprised , and asked as an understudy shouldn't I need to be with him or not … vikram informed me that , it is for Kapoor Industries not Telecoms he also added that, if the deal gets final green signal by the top bosses of the kapoor Industry …, I will be accompanying Ram kapoor to Goa.
Taking one file from the two , he gave it to me , vikram said " Kapoor Industries is now trying to diversify its business , and it wants to acquire one of the top Pharma Company at Goa … Read the history …" vikram stood up and greeting me once again he left …
I was studying the information about the new industry to be acquired , one of my sub-ordinate came to me . I asked him about his presence , he handed me a file and said , that some of the trainees and employees are being show caused by the HODs and it needs my final authorization . before signing I looked through the letters , there are 13-17 letters . I went through them one by one … and I stopped at a name …. It shocked me …. The name was "Natasha Kapoor" I read that name , and opening the System I typed her employment number to get her details … it shocked me , when I read her father's name as "Amarnath Kapoor" he is the father of Ram Kapoor …
I looked up and asked Amit , if I was right or not … he said that I and my assumptions are totally correct …
" Trainee Natasha Kapoor .. I don't get it Amit … and she is the owner's sister .." I wondered …
" mam . she and her twin brother Rishab Kapoor works as Management Trainees , here at Kapoor Telecoms …" amit replied and he wondered me …
" which departments .. I peeped into the computer again .. and before I can search he said that Natasha Kapoor works in HR department and Rishab at Finance …I wanted to see this two kids , and I wanted to know why they are working as trainees though they are supposed to be the owner one day …
' ok .. do one thing …keep this files with me , I will get back to you after I m done with this ..and send Sandhya , I have an important meeting and I need her .." I asked amit to leave …..
After few minutes , I was in the Finance Department , seeing their new HR , General manager the department got conscious … they stood up as I stepped in , the HOD of the department came running out of the cabin as the peon informed him about my presence , he shook hand with me … I looked around , the employees are standing …. And staring at me like they have seen ghost …. I have came to know that , every department has a conference hall, I asked the HOD to call his department to the conference hall ..
Sandhya lead me to the conference and hall , and I came to know that 23 officials are there … and 8 utility staffs are there .. in addition …
I sat on the chair .. waited for the department to arrive .. In few seconds , next , the full department was there leaving the utility staffs behind …
" good morning ..' I stood up … , I introduced my self and asked the employees to introduce them ….one by one … they introduced themselves and I stopped at a person who introduced himself as "Rishab Kapoor …' I looked up to the person , the kid whom I was finding … the employees introduction was over …
' ok friends I m here with two news one good news one bad news … which one you will prefer to hear first …" I said with a weird smile as a Hr personnel always has …
There was no response from them .. I stood up and said " ok then let me disclose it …. First there will be a surprise appraisal for this department (as decided by Desai Sir , Ram kapoor , Victor D and me , earlier, the new policy adopted ) and other there will be some retrenchment …
There was a wave of fear …. Arising …. I said , " dont panic , you have time … 2 days and I want a report of your work from last 6 months on my table .. and 3rd day I will be having a face to face interview with you , and some other highers also … will be there with me … so a justified appraisal and retrenchment will take place …."
They didn't replied … I said " Justified ??" little louder I said …. The department replied .. " yes …" I stood up and wishing them luck I left for the production department , there I just have to check and survey about the process there was no plan for their appraisal that time … I moved to the marketing department , and lastly I entered the HR department … there I have to check about the general HR issues and employee satisfaction and welfare …
I did the same , introduction process and I asked Miss natasha Kapoor from that department to meet me that evening at 5 P.m , she without any protest , nodded yes to me , I have covered my four departments for that fort night , I have came across 6 of the 15 show caused employees .
When I came back to the cabin , to my surprise I saw Ram Kapoor waiting for me at my cabin , he was going through a file , seated on the couch . he stood up as he saw me entering . I have already asked Amit to see me . Amit arrived just after me , I asked Amit to remind the other 9 SCE s to meet me at 5 P.m that day …
Soon after Amit Left , Ram kapoor said " so late working today…"
" yes sir … there are some show cause issues …" I sat after he settled on the couch …
' and sir , there is someone who may bother you …" I said with courage …
" me …?" who…" he asked
" Miss Natasha Kapoor…" I paused …
" so who is she …?" he behaved weirdly and denied to the fact that Natasha is his sister ..
" she is your ..sister sir …" I said out of my surprised mind ..
' at my home , outside this office priya , she is my darling , for whom I can do n e thing ..just n e thing .. I have crushed about 7 boys who tried to flirt wd my sweetheart …, and inside this office she is just a management trainee and the chair person give a damn to the MTs that you also know , so just do the same with her , if she is guilty and if she fails to show a relevant cause against the charge …" ram kapoor surprised me again but it became clear to me to which extent he love his sister … , he with a second of pause , said " I just forgot for what I m here ….'
" yes sir …" I said .. showing my seriousness…
' vikram must have said that Desai Uncle is at Goa , to acquire a Pharma company …he has almost acquired it .. and I have to go for the final deal and presentation … I want you to come with me" he paused looked at me , " I know you have been appointed for this telecom sector of mine , but Desai Sir is impressed with your dedication he wants you to be the part of the Extended Kapoor Industries … if it is ok with you …"
"with my pleasure sir , a dream which I never dreamt off , is coming in a platter for me , a fool only will reject it .." I said overwhelmingly..
" that's good I expected this only from you …but you have to take more responsibilities priya …are you ready .." he looked for an answer to me , I nodded in reply . he continued …" then its fixed that you are coming with me to Goa .., I will ask to book tickets for us and choose an assistant for yourself ..… and please make a complete plan how we can benefit that company and the staffing system and policy … and the effectiveness , everything in details bulleted point …' he gave me a huge work , but I want to know how much time I have in my hand … and he said that I have 20 days in my hand … I felt relieved … and assured him that I will be ready with the presentation within 15 days … my bossy boss said that I have 10 days to complete it , and then our presentation will be presented to the broad members , after their approval , only , we can leave for the final deal …
" holy cow !!!" I muttered , such a huge detailed bulleted point report in 10 days , means I have no nights to sleep properly … I was brought out of my thought by the tycoon as he said that , he will be helping me , if I need his help …
' Thank you Sir .. its really sweet of you …" I stopped and looked up … ram kapoor was looking intently at mee… I cleared my throat and he looked aside ….
" I mean .. sir .. thank you .. but you have many other workload and if I will disturb you with my doubts then …" he said over voicing me , " its ok Miss Sharma … I love to work … rather that is the only thing I have .." he suddenly stopped, correcting himself said " I mean … I love to work …."
I only smiled back ….
There was a awkward silence , suddenly in the room , none of us spoke , what made us stop I don't know , and I guess he doesn't know either ….
'ah.." I started … " lunch sir …."
"ya .." he said hesitatingly … and sat properly on the couch …
" I will get the lunch box …" I walked to the table where my lunch box was kept by me that morning …
After fetching plates from the canteen by the utility staff I served him food , cooked by me , not by my mom, I lied that morning to him .. my mom never packed food for me , after my di's divorce , rather my jiju's love confession for me .
We finished our lunch , and no other conversation happened between us … other than , "any more sir …" ," no thanks .."and, "yes that one …" after finishing lunch we settled back on the couch .
"Thanks …" ram kapoor said … I looked up , he sipped water from his glass and continued " your mother is a good cook …nice food , I generally don't eat vegetarian , but today I felt like eating more …" he smiled , I at mind thanked him for liking food cooked by me …
" she is …" I added praise for my mom …
' I think .." he stood up , after him I stood up too … he added , " you should start working … you have loads of work to do .. and your new responsibility , the letter will be issued soon , after the broad meet , and Desai Sir's recommendation … but from my side , welcome to the big family of kapoor industry …'
I looked down at his extended hand to me , smiling I took his hand on mine and thanked him …
" great !!! keep working I will see you later .. and once again … thanks for the lunch , and complement your mom from my side …" smiling he left my cabin. I settled on my chair and started working on the new venture ..
It was 4:50 p.m when amit asked permission to see me , he came and informed that the show caused employees are there . I asked him to let them in one by one …. It is a disciplinary interview … I need to be strict and humble at the same time …
One by one 7 employees came and showed the reason for their misbehavior … and then at the 8th one came "Natasha Kapoor …."
I looked up to the young lady …. "sit …" I said , she followed …
" late coming … is the charge against you …. Do you come late regularly ??" I started interrogating her …
"no mam.." she answered …
' then this charge is fake?"
' no mam"
"do you know how to speak?' I asked little annoyingly
"god .. do you know any other word other than yes no and mam??" I asked as I stood up …
" yes mam…" she said ..
" Miss kapoor …. Speak out … why you come late and if this charges are not wrong and your boss is right then where the hell lies the truth !!!" I asked slamming the table …
" I came late 4 times ….' She couldn't complete I over voiced and said " and it's a breach of contract … you cannot do that , you need to inform your boss in written , did you ??"
" no mam …"
" and the reason is …"
" no such …" she answered
" I m not satisfied with your answers Miss Sharma …. You have to face the punishment as per the company norms …" I settled back …
" yes mam…." She looked down …
" are you OK Natasha …" I asked in a caring tone … she didn't replied , her thumb ran along her eyes …
" hey !! why are you crying ??" I came to her … and passed the tissue box to her ..
" thanks …." She took some tissues …
" now tell me where is the problem ??" I asked .. at first she denied but after I pressurized her to speak , she disclosed ….
She helplessly said " I cant travel by bus or auto … mam , I never been used to it , and bhai … I mean .. Ram Sir , suddenly asked me to avail bus or train or auto for office , Rishab manages but I cant , I wait for my mom to come and pick me for office when I don't manage for a bus or auto …".
I understand her problem , she is a rich kid and full pampered kid , and loving sister to ram kapoor , he gave her all the facilities and he if suddenly will take everything from her , she will face trouble … I stopped thinking … and said " Ok … I consider .. and I will talk about this with Ram sir …"
" please don't …' she suddenly stopped me .. I asked her why , she said that her brother will get annoyed if he comes to know that she has gave such reasons … for her late coming ….
' don't worry , he will say nothing … just relax ….and go …" I said her with a smile , I know she wanted to speak further , but I resisted , and asked her to leave …..
I settled back for the rest employee interview …. After facing all the employees , I prepared the feedback for the further actions that should be taken against the specific employees, I handed it to Amit , and asked him to do the further proceedings …. I was done for the day.
At the lobby, I pressed the call button … and waited for the elevator …
' hi …" ram kapoor said … I looked back and found vikram and ram kapoor together ..
"hi .. good evening sir …" I smiled ..
The elevator arrived in the mean time .. we stepped into it …
" so had a hectic day …" vikram asked …
" not such … thinking about an employee only …" I said and looked at ram kapoor , he is busy with his blackberry …
" which employee ?" vikram asked …
'natasha kapoor …" I said , and the tycoon looked at me … sharp … his look was sharp …
"nuts .. I mean Natasha .. what …" vikram was stopped by ram kapoor , " vikram , she is an employee , and let priya handle her .. we don't need to think about her …"
" you should Mr. Kapoor" I snapped at him ..
"sorry …" he asked in a weird tone … rather angry tone ..
" you can't expect a sudden change in some one …" I replied sharper ..
" what do you mean …??" he asked ..
" hmm… sir what will happen if I ask you to use the stairs to 12th floor , from 2morow , not the elevator , can you do that , will you feel comfortable with that …" I asked ..
"sorry .. why should I ??"
" and if you have to , if you don't have n e choice ….how you will feel …"
" you are confusing miss Sharma …"
" so do you are to Natasha Mr.kapoor …"
He gave me a weird look …. The elevator stopped at the basement .. I stepped out and behind me the two men … before we part I turned to Ram Kapoor , " Sir , she is your sweet heart , you pamper her all the time ,as you said, and when it comes to office you suddenly change , a rough tough … have you ever thought the only sister of two brothers , pampered and so loved …. Suddenly stands alone to fight this world .. to face the truth of the world , can she do that ??? no .. the answer is no … she is your darling sister , and you are treating her as a machine , sorry sir , but its true …I know you want your sister to face this world but … you are torturing her ..." I sighed , with a pause I said " I m sorry sir , its your decision , but before it goes out of your hold … rectify it …. This world is what that you know very well … don't let her drown … you can make her learn the truth of being a human … but not playing a dual role .. a Hippocratic boss at office and the most caring brother after the office …. You can't …." I paused tried to learn his expression , but I failed …. I wished "Good Night …." And started walking away from the men.
I took out the keys of my car , beeped it … keeping my bag at the rear seat … I got into the driver seat …and drove out of the parking , before I get vanished from the kapoor Telecoms office …. I looked back through the rear view mirror and found Ram Kapoor and Vikram standing still there and Vikram is saying something to Him …. I took left turn .. to my home …. And dispersed into the Mumbai Heavy Traffic …..
