Boss screamed at Namik “You are good for nothing. I don’t know why on earth I hired you at first place.” Namik wanted to scream back at him but something stopped him to do so. Since Namik has joined this company, he becomes a laughing stalk because of his boss’s behavior towards him. He is a US graduate and this qualification is now his biggest enemy. His boss never leaves a moment to humiliate him in front of rest of the staff.
Namik wanted to leave this job badly but his dad wanted him to continue this job as its a very well paying job. According to his dad, these are petty issues, which will surpass with time. But with every passing moment, Namik is feeling suffocated. He wanted to run away from his job and home, both. Namik is becoming a volcano that can erupt anytime and will engulf everything whatever comes on his way.
That day volcano erupted, Namik punched his boss on his face and left the office in his car. He doesn’t want to go home either. He was driving aimlessly on the roads. He doesn’t know how long he drove that day, he finally stopped his car and saw a beautiful and serene lake in front of eyes. He parked his car and sat on the lakeside. For the first time, he was feeling calm and controlled from inside, he was thoughtless and relaxed. He heard someone humming a song, he knew this song but cannot recall it. He took out his phone and switched it on. He ignored all notifications of 50 missed calls and messages. He frantically started to recall that song. He opened his youtube application and tried all possible words he can think of in the search bar.
“Mann Ka Radio Bajane De Jara
Gum Ko Bhulkar Ji Le Tu Jara
Station Koyi Naya Tune Kar Le Jara
Full To Attitude De De Tu Jara
Tuta Dil Kya Huwa Ho Gaya Jo Huwa
Bhule Bisare Geet Gaa Ke Bhul Ja
Badala Jo Rythm Usape Jhul Ja
Full To Attitude De De Tu Jara”
As the song started playing, he saw the first ray of sunlight was kissing the water of the lake. He took out his laptop, open two blank pages. One page titled “Resignation Letter” and another one “Extraordinaire Pvt. Ltd., Managing Director- Namik”.
