EXPERIENCE OF BEING A GIRL ~

OKAY, SO WHERE DO I START? THIS INCIDENT HAPPENED WITH A CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE RECENTLY AND LEFT ME DISTURBED. SO IT GOES LIKE..

TARA, BEING A DELHI UNIVERSITY STUDENT WAS GETTING BORED IN HER ANNUAL POST EXAM BREAK. SO SHE DECIDED TO GO FOR A PAID INTERNSHIP THIS TIME TO POLISH HER SKILLS AND EARN A FEW BUCKS  AS WELL .SO SHE RANDOMLY GOT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS JOB VACANCY THROUGH HER AQUAINTANCE. SHE WAS GIVEN WITH THE BOSS’S CONTACT AND SHE BEING AN ENTHUSIASTIC KID, TEXTED THAT NUMBER AT THE DROP OF THE HAT.ON TEXTING SHE NOTICED HIS DISPLAY PICTURE THAT SHOWED THAT THIS MAN WAS POSSIBLY WITH THE AGE OF HER GRANDFATHER. SHE WAS COMFORTABLE WITH WHOME SHE WAS SEEING AS HER BOSS, SINCE IT WAS EASIER FOR HER TO WORK WITH ELDERLY PEOPLE. TO HER, IT MEANT A GOOD ENVIRONMENT.

NEXT CAME HER TELEPHONIC INTERVIEW FOR WHICH SHE HAD WAITED WITH BATED BREATHES. SHE WAS ASKED ABOUT HER FAVOURITE SUBJECTS AND OPINION ON CERTAIN ISSUES. EVERYTHING WAS GOING GOOD, UNTILL HE ABRUPTLY ASKED, ” ARE YOU OPEN MINDED?” TO WHICH SHE REPLIED WITH AFFIRMATION, NOT KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT TO SAY AND WHAT HE MEANT. NEXT HE ASKED IF SHE COULD TRAVEL TO OTHER CITIES FOR WORK, TO WHICH SHE DENIED AS IT WAS TOO EARLY FOR HER. NEXT DAY SHE WAS CALLED TO OFFICE.

I REMEMBER,WE MET ON THE SAME DAY. SHE HAD TOLD ME EVERYTHING AND THEN WE HAD DECIDED HER CLOTHING AND STUFF. SHE HAD ALSO TOLD ME ABOUT BEING ASKED IF SHE WAS OPEN MINDED OR NOT. I HAD REASSURED HER THAT IT MIGHT BE DUE TO WORKING ENVIRONMENT AND HIGH RATIO OF GUYS TO GIRLS MAYBE! THAT WAS ALL I COULD  MAKEOUT AT THAT MOMENT. RELAXED, SHE WENT HOME, REVISED HER SKILLS, WORKED ON HER C.V. AND SLEPT EARLY.

NEXT DAY SHE WENT TO THE OFFICE, WHICH WAS NOT FAR FROM OUR RESIDENTIAL AREA. EVERYTHING SEEMED A PLUS POINT- THE LOCATION, TIMING, SALARY.. EVERYTHING! SO IT BECAME EVEN MORE LUCRATIVE AND SHE WANTED TO GRAB THIS ONE AT ANY COST. 

ON REACHING THERE, SHE WAS ASKED TO WAIT FOR 10 MINUTES. PATIENTLY WAITING FOR HER TURN, SHE ADMIRED THE OFFICE BUILDING, THE FURNITURE AND WAS IMAGINING HER DESK POSITION AND HOW SHE’D PERSONALIZE IT. SOON AFTER, SHE WAS CALLED IN . PLEASANTRIES WERE EXCHANGED BEFORE SHE SAT DOWN WITH HER BOSS TO DISCUSS FINAL THINGS. SHE ASKED ABOUT THE NATURE OF WORK AND WAS SHOCKED, AND SO WILL YOU BE AFTER READING THIS . SO HERE’S THAT CONVO:
TARA: SO WHAT WOULD EXACTLY  BE                  MY WORK, SIR.

MR BOSS : I THOUGHT POOJA TOLD YOU                      EVERYTHING ?

TARA: NO SIR, SHE JUST GAVE ME YOUR              CONTACT AND ASKED ME TO                        TAKE THIS FURTHER. 

MR BOSS : OKAY, I’LL TELL YOU.  SO                              YOU HAVE TO STAY AS MY                            FRIEND SINCE MOST OF MY                          TIME IS SPENT IN THE OFFICE                      AND I FEEL LONELY OVER                              HERE. YOU WILL HAVE TO                            MEET ME OUTSIDE OFFICE                            ONCE IN A WEEK AND WE                              WILL BE GOING FOR MOVIES,                      AND IN MALLS AND FOR                                LUNCH AND BREAKFAST.                            YOU WILL HAVE TO BE MY                            COMPANION WHERE EVER I                          GO. YOU’RE SALARY WILL                              IMPROVE ACCORDING  TO                              YOUR FOCUS IN WORK (WITH                      THAT DIRTY SMILE) . YOU                              HAVE TO BE MY  SPECIAL                              FRIEND 😉                                            

TARA WAS DUMBSTRUCK. HE ASKED , IF SHE COULD JOIN IN BY TOMORROW,TO WHICH SHE REPLIED,”I’LL DISCUSS IT WITH MY FATHER AND THEN LET YOU KNOW”-NOT KNOWING WHAT ELSE TO SAY. HE MOCKINGLY SAID,” CAN YOU REALLY DISCUSS THIS ALL WITH YOUR FATHER ? AND WOULD HE AGREE?”  AND STARTED LAUGHING LOUNDLY. TARA FELT SO EMBARRASSING AND SCARED AT THE SAME TIME. ALL THE WIRES IN HER BRAIN WERE JAMMED. SHE COULDNT THINK OF ANYTHING & WAS WAITING FOR THIS ORDEAL TO END SO SHE COULD JUST RUN OUT OF THAT ‘OFFICE’. SHE WAS OUT BEFORE THE INK DRIED. LATER SHE CAME HOME AND TOLD ME ABOUT EVERYTHING , DESCRIBING ALL HER EMOTIONS AND EVERYTHING SHE WENT THROUGH. THEN SHE REMINDED ME ABOUT THE QUESTION THIS MAN HAD ASKED HER ON THE  TELEPHONIC ‘INTERVIEW’- THAT IF SHE COULD TRAVEL- NOW SHE UNDERSTOOD THE SENSE – EXPLAINING ME ABOUT HIS INTENTIONS OF ENJOYING WITH HER IN DIFFERENT CITIES.THIS WAS HIS CONCEPT OF BEING ‘OPEN MINDED’. 

IT WAS SO DISGUSTING. A MAN OF THE AGE OF YOUR GRANDFATHER WANTS TO KEEP YOU AS HIS FRIEND FOR HIS ENJOYMENT, POSSIBLY TRYING FOR SOME DIRTY MOVES. SUCH A CREEP. I GOT SO FURIOUS AND WE FIRED BACK AT POOJA ( TARA’S SO CALLED ACQUAINTANCE ). SHE WAS CLUELESS AND FELT SORRY FOR ENGAGING TARA INTO THIS. 

WE HAD SEEN SUCH INCIDENTS ONLY IN WEBISODES AND IT LEFT US MOVED. WE LAUGHED IT OFF AT LAST COUNTING IT AS YET ANOTHER PERK OF BEING A WOMAN.THANKS TO THE VARIETY OF JOBS WE ARE OFFERED.  

 TARA HAS NOW DROPPED THE IDEA OF  A JOB AT LEAST IN THESE NOT SO RENOWNED  PRIVATE FIRMS. 

What do you think about her reaction ?  She came back without saying this oldie even a word. What would have you done if you were in her position, ladies?

And to guys, cannot women be something more than your personal objects? If she’s a woman, don’t make this appear as her weakness. If she’s young and dynamic, her energies and creativities can be put to even better use than you Imaginations and dreams. 

Peace.
