‘I got fired today, feeling low as never’ said Sugandha in her unusual tone, her muscles of the entire body ache as she said those words to herself.
‘Spending all day and night, to this never ending task, i am finally fired not from this job but from even the lives of the people i was devoted to’. It was sad sad day for her. Her entire hard work of years to make things happen gone wasted as those 3 words were spoken by her children and husband (whom she supported every single time, good or bad). Now, she was literally homeless, workless and full of memories she wants to run away from.
Things changed in just 3 words. Wow ! Taking her bag of expectations she heads towards the river in her local area, opened the bag and just throw it away, deciding to never blame them again for her miserable state. She’s clearly not an object to be played or fool around and logically, it was she who invested herself happily then why this melodrama now. Let it end. Remember the Bhagwat Gita sutra told by her mother – ‘Karm kro, phal k chinta mat karo’ (Just do the karma, fruits are not in your hands. They may be in favor or turn against you). While throwing that bag she brought to that house on her wedding, she repeated the sutra, strengthening herself even more and then it was gone. Now it is her turn to flow with the flow of life without interruption. She is clueless to where to go but then she remind herself of – to flow with the flow, hence, took the first bus and boarded it without asking where it will go. Next day, she found herself in entirely new place – she never knew that place even exist in that state.
Picking up her necessary items, she moved to an Ashram nearby for free accommodation and food. She was hungry since yesterday. After the meal, she blessed the God and Goddess for that wonderful free treat and slept. The moment she gained her senses back, it was evening and everyone in that Ashram was busy doing their chores. She decided to meet the Head priest to ask if he needs her help in any chore. He directed him to join the disciples and others.
She did her task skillfully, helping everyone from child to an old man. She felt a sort of lovely feeling doing so.
Few days passed and she was still busy helping others until one fine day she was struck with an idea worth implementing. She went to every member of the Ashram for humble request if they are willing to join her in this idea of her. Sadly, she was laughed at and not taken seriously. It didn’t mind her, though as Bhagwat Gita sutra was fixed in her mind.
So, she went out to work herself.
Days passed and months gone by and she worked and worked until one day she got her MT business registered herself plus employ people to train and work under her for better service experiences.
Her Multi-Tasking business flourished and even IPO was launched successfully.
Seeing her photo in the newspaper, being interviewed and listed among the most successful self made business woman, she can’t hold back her tears.
Today, the only thing she teaches her employees is to work hard and fight back whenever they are fired for no reason (in any walk of life).
Being crazy is the only way to being sane 🙂
