Grown Ups

The 4 year old boy was excited to welcome his father’s boss who was coming to dinner with his wife. He was asked to be on his best behavior.When the guests came in and all of them were being introduced to each other, the boy exclaimed in delight, but you all know each other already. He was shooed into his room by the maid, while his parents and their “friends” were arguing with each other and he mumbled,”grown ups”.

His father’s boss was his mother’s “friend” and the boss’s wife, his father’s “friend”.



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
