JANUARY 10, 2008

It was a winter morning when I leave my bed for the day. It was 8.00 in the morning when I kept aside my blanket to look for my sleepers at the floor of the bedroom. I could feel an itch at the back of my head which I later reconized as a sensation of ache. It was mild and so without bothering much I take out the tooth brush to step into the bathroom for the morning freshness.


At 10 am, I was at my office chair and could still feel the tingling sensation at the cervical juncture of the back of the head. I just ignored it and started working with a slow pace. The day began with hundreds of customers quing in front of me. I was just serving them, but abit slower than I use to serve before. My work is to collect and dispense cash. A risky work which needs much concentration. When I ended the day, I was too tired. I could feel the intensity of my aching sentation at the back of the head is increasing its intensity. I put the cash in order and examined witht he computer generated figure. Unfortunately the cash do not tally. It was short by Rs. 2500/-.

I just scrutinised again, ticking each and every voucher I had collected throughout the day. The result was same as it was.

NOW, what could be my reaction. I am confused what to do. Shall I seat sad or enjoy?

I shall love to hear your advice.

    Horrible!! Dear mridul. Perhaps now you are going to pay it to fill the loss from your pocket. You must be cautious enough. Someone had received more payment but did not return it.
    Don’t worry . Please be cautious next time.

    Once we loose our concentration over the counter, we have to suffer. This is not the first time I am paying out of my pocket, but after a long break of around 4 months. The amount was really high.

    Anyway, I suppose the person taking it is going to return me the sum by tomorrow or by his next visit to me. I believe still there are good people in this earth. Let me think positively.

    Thank you for your sympathy Mr. Dasgupta.
