T for - The story of M

Ithu oru sutta pazham post. Its the story of M, as written by his wife. M is a good friend of mine and his life story is pakka padaiyappa script :) Being the 650th post in Supershanki..thought..will make it special by posting about a special person with the script from his own special person :))

Strong,  confident, young and cheery.. how else can i describe about him??  Until  he turned  19, his  life was same as others.   He had the time of his life, when he was in college.  . Being the youngest, MR.M was the “tharuthalai” of the family.  Somehow, he managed to pass the degree in Catering without any arrears. As far as he was concerned he had done the best.  His father and himself were made to believe that, joining Maritime course will help him to seek job in shipping, which turned out to be fake. Having no other option he  continued in the same industry after college.  He struggled for three years on what turned out to be the worst phase of his career, on his very first job itself. Still he braved on, high on the hopes of proving himself one day.

Even today, when he  talks about these experiences he never regrets for that part of his life. He forever in debt to his younger brother, who once while passing by his workplace wanted to meet him and upon witnessing M’s plight at his work place, broke into tears and immediately arranged for a job for him in Insurance sector., M’s  father also felt very guilty that he himself has ruined his son's life by making such a poor decision. Not just for me,  M’s story will be  a good motivator for anyone who wants to come up on their own in  life. I, for one, feels so proud to have such a brave hearted man in my life.

Everyday, i  watch him handle different kind of tense situations, be at home or in office
so coolly and composed. Never does he allow the circumstances to change his mood or lose temper.
When he joined Aviva Insurance company, he was brilliant in capturing people through his words, which was not  a difficult task for him in achieving his target but, in the long run people started to run away from him for the fear of him coercing them into getting insurance.

Through one of his school mates he was able to join an international company in an HR department,  where he started his career in night shifts.  He was being  paid more by the insurance company when he took the offer from the MNC, which was actually offering him less. . It was a make or break decision and this time he made the right one. He didn't want to let go off the opportunity to work in software and joined the MNC  He worked very hard and dedicated the next 4.5 years of his life in that company to make himself strong enough to survive in his newly chosen field.  From there he switched to few other companies and now will you believe he is into IT and is no less than
anyone who has come from an engineering background.  He giggles when anyone asks are you an MCA or MBA.

I am proud to be in his life and i also know that he is highly inspired by his beloved father.  He accepts all the hard days and takes them up as a challenge and i am sure with  this kind of attitude in any man or a women they are bound to be successful in their life.

S for - saithaan kee bachaa

Namma oor makkaluku hindi teriathungaratha vachu egapatta per nakkaladichitrupanga/kanga. Recent one being Chennai express movie. Aaana hindikaranga Inga vanthu sikki seerazhiyaratha pathi avlo impactfula oru padam innum varalainu thaan thonuthu.

Anyways..last weekla busla poitrunthapo, came across a surprising scene. One kudimagan, was loitering on the footboard. Conductor patiently asked him to step in to the bus. He got irritated and showed his 50 rs ticket and claimed that he is not travelling without ticket. The logic mismatch was evident of his state of mind. Conductor cajoled him saying, he looked like his younger brother and patiently asked him to take a seat. The guy relented under the "love attack" and sat inside. I was pleasantly surprised. Usuala, even if I had been in the position of the conductor, would've given one tight slap and would've kicked the guy out for putting his life and others in jeopardy. And that this guy was at his patience best was a happy experience.

Suddenly there was a commotion.

One Oriya family was arguing loudly with the conductor that he had given them wrong change. They were supposed to be given 8 rs while they had been given only 2 rs. They were two of them and had taken a ticket each. Ithennada visu pada kanakku mathri irukkay nu was wondering and watching the scene. The conductor tried to talk to them in broken hindi and they laughed at him and replied in English. He simply said "ticket turn karo".

Matter is..those manga madayans had bought 9rs ticket and had seen it upside down. Seri, ticketla tamilla print adichirukum..so upside downside teriathu vachukalam. Sidela vara numbers koodava note pannamaatanga. The conductor gave them an earful in tamil and those guys who were so arrogant were blushing in shame.


Itharuku thaan..sollin selvar simbu andrayy paadinaar...

"Gilsu..pona vaaram namma colleague oruthar eranthutaarnu mail vanthuchulla..avaruku contribution collect panna mail anupanum..Namma teamsku neeye collect pannidu"

He also forwarded the mail that came from HR for reference.

Damager sollita atha thatta mudiyuma illa murukku seedai thaan panna mudiyuma. Promptly sent one kanneer Anjali mail to saga adimais.

"Gils..i the one doubt have" asked one guy.

"Ithula ennada doubtu??"

"Yaar intha aalu? why are we collecting money for him"

"Therilada...namma damager sollirukaratha paatha namma account aala thaan irupaar pola"

"Naan paathathay ilaye..athaan keten"

"Intha aala paatha namma admin team aalu mathiriye irukaaru...avaraiyum romba naala kaanum...oru vela avara irupaaro"

Solli mudikarathukulla...matter forest fire mathiri paravi..people started pouring in...

"Adapavamay..avaruku rendu chinnna pasanga vera irukay..school pora vayasula"

"Kalyanam aaidichaa?"

"deii....refer to previous kostin"
