The Call

Her mobile rang  in the darkness of a posh hotel room.

The man with her had finished off what he got her for and had left in a hurry leaving a wad of notes on the bed.

“What? I am just getting out.”

“New party, big money, wants the best”.

“Waiting out side in front of the bus stop”.

“Okay I am on my way.”

Touching up her makeup, she walked to the car and knocked on the tinted window.

Her fiancee’s face made her go weak in the knees.


There is a deep and cosmological connection between my birth, my parent's decision to name me what they did, my profession and my education. This brings me to the conclusion that fate is predetermined and like in Hindu mythology, is written by Brahma when someone is born. Example: My name is unique. I did my grads in Psychology. I then did my masters in HR (offshoot of following all the psychos). I then did the ultimate decision of joining an MNC in ............. beat it, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT. So, I have the concept 'MAD' in my name, my education, my choice of career and all the milestone decisions of my life. Now, is it predetermined or what ? :-D
