All in a day’s work

Maya got up that morning feeling charged. After all it was her first day at her very first job!

She got dressed,wearing her new churidar, offered her prayers to god and walked out the door.

Her mom called out to her and said ” beti go carefuly”.

Maya reached the office gate, she looked up in awe at how tall it was. She knew her office was on the 18th floor and she had heard it had a magnificient view of the city.

The lift stopped at the 18th floor and opened towards a reception.

She walked upto the reception and told the lady there that it was her joining date. The lady looked  up at Maya and said             ” Your uniform is kept in that small room near the emergency exit. The brooms and buckets are in the toilet. Go change and start your work.”



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
