Waddup guys!

What are your plans for the New Year? I know it is too early to ask, but I have already planned mine and I am way too excited for it. Wanna know my plan? People, I am going to Goa this New Year. Wuhuu!! But, I haven’t asked my boss for leaves yet, and I am too afraid to ask. 2-3 people have already asked for leaves and if I go, my plan will become ‘go, Goa, gone’.

“Guys, do you know a simple and boss-proof idea to get a 1 week leave?” I asked VJ and Riya. “1 week leave? Do you think you have any chance? Leave unhe milti hai jo office aate hai,” said VJ. I looked at Riya for some assistance, but she said, “Well, this time, I agree with VJ. You take so many leaves that I don’t think, people from other departments would know anything about you, except your entries on the site.” To this, I said, “Oh C’mon guys. I am not that irregular.”

“Ask me!” said a heavy voice. Oops! That was boss. All I was doing at that time was to pray that he didn’t overhear my plan. “Sky, by your standards irregular would mean coming only 1 day in a week to office. Right?” said boss. “No.. s-sir! I.. I was just making conversation,” I hemmed and hawed. Then, he told me to get back to my work.

As soon as he left, I resumed the topic and suggested if I take a sick leave. “Sky Baba ki jai ho!” VJ said. “Now you can foresee illness.” she added. “Oh yes! I can even foresee your future. Wanna know? You will be one of the biggest devotees of mine.” VJ said that she would be a spy disguised as a devotee to reveal my reality. Of course, I won’t take sick leave in advance. The first day, I’ll text boss that I am down with fever and will make it a little more severe for a week and recover when I come back. What say guys?

Then, I said that I won’t have to worry much as I would have strong followers to protect me and a super strong door. Bwaahh!! “Mere paas gadi hai, bangla hai, bournvita peete bhakt hai. Tumahre paas kya hai. Haiin?” I joked in Amitabh Bacchan ishtyle. “Mere paas darwaza todne ke liye ACP Pradyuman ka officer Daya hai,” said VJ instantly. That was the point we burst into laughter. 

At this Riya said that people won’t fall for imposters any more, especially after the big exposé of Rampal, so I should cancel this plan. “Oh Riya, you know people are so gullible that they will soon switch to some new baba as soon as he comes in the market and offer him precious jewels, gold bricks or whatever they can offer,” I said. VJ agreed with me and it happens seldom. Even you guys know it. Whenever she agrees with me, I take it as a signal that I am infallible about that particular thing.

This gullibility is the reason that these Goddamn people claim to be Godmen. May be that is why, people still follow other Babas or Bapus or whatever. They just thug people and become filthy rich in no time. Does rationality, even exist in India? I doubt!

Guys, such people are no angels sent by god or any incarnations. Do not fall in their trap.

“Jago Bharatwasiyo Jago”

Till then, I’ll think of some solid reason for leave.

Cya!
