A sweaty ‘hi’ to you guys!!

I know this is not something you wanna hear, but I have landed in a very miserable condition. Every damn day I am getting late. I entered the office in a sweating and panting condition. All thanks to my dad. My old bike is no more, which is why I am asking him for a new one. But, he is saying that I should collect money on my own because I am earning. He was being a little sweet with me for a change, but now he is back to square one, making my life a challenge. As if every day torture of my lecturers in college and VJ’s tyranny is not enough.

When I entered the room, VJ was all set to make me a butt of jokes. “I think every morning, Sky should be honoured with a song at his entry.” And the song was, Baharo phool barsao- with F-O-O-L. She said, “Sky this song will suit you so immaculately.” Everyone had a belly laugh.

“Oh my my! Look who is getting better at cracking jokes. Finally, my lessons are fruitful for you. Guru dakshina nai dogi?” I said. “Oh, yes! I think as Guru dakshina you should get what Bilawal Bhutto got in London. Tomatoes and eggs!” VJ said. Damn! She is getting better. But, Riya came to my rescue and asked me why I got late and fuming. I told her my daily struggle to reach here and how my dad is being so unreasonable.

Guys, I have to run after a bus, then metro, then bus and then walk a few meters. I feel like I run in a marathon every day. But, I won’t have to wait for long. Riya asked me how. I told that Black Money will soon come back to the country and the Modi government has promised to give 15 lakhs to all. Even AICC Communication Department Chairman Ajay Maken is also demanding his money. He said, “Modi had said that each citizen will have Rs 15 lakh if black money is brought back… I am demanding my 15 lakh rupees. I want that 15 lakh rupees to reach to my pocket, to your pockets.”

As soon as I get the money, I would buy my dream bike KTM Duke 390 which is approximately for 2 lakhs and an iPhone 6. I’ll decide later about the rest. How awesome my life would become.

At this Riya said, “That’s a wishful thinking, Sky.” Then VJ jumped in, as usual. She said, “Let him live in his wonderland. He has been working in Janpratinidhi for months now and he still can’t understand the difference between bait and reality.” Unfortunately, I agree with VJ. Even if the Modi wave is there, in the end politicians will be politicians. Modi government would dismiss the matter and promise with some excuses and walk off.

But, I don’t know anything. I want my 15 lakhs right now!!

Let us pray that soon our bank accounts are credited with good cash.

Amen!
