The offer letter

This time I can sense a little hope in her eyes. It can be a possible thing for sure. I felt a lot happier. And after some planning we are going to make it together.

The idea of Priya being with me for the first time away from home sent some shivers down the spine. I felt like, this one is surely going to be the greatest journey of my life and this particular interview is everything to me. There is no way, I need to crack.

Back with preparation, and our planning worked out quite so well and we have reached Hyderabad a little earlier than expected and straight away headed towards the company which was located at Hi-Tech City.

Hey Jay! Look at the city. I’m just loving it. I had never been to Hyderabad so far. Priya exclaims in her routine fashion.

Look at those hills. I pointed out to Priya. And she went busy in framing the memories on her phone.

We reached on time and the interview was actually going on. I felt a bit nervous for the first time. I had put up lot of pressure on me for this job. Fortunately I have got a call from their HR and I walked into the cabin while Priya was waiting for me in the waiting hall.

After 3 hours of constant questioning and testing my patience. I have got a clear indication from the company recruitment team was I will be getting a confirmation mail by the evening or next day in the morning. I felt a bit relived as I did my part.

Back in the cab, We have made some plans to make this trip a memorable one. We had planned to have lunch at one of the finest restaurant that Hyderabad had. When it comes to Priya, I always want to give her the best. And coming to food. It was a feast. One would certainly fall in love with the food.

It was then I got a mail from the company stating about the offer letter. My heart skipped for a second. I went numb. I did this one for Priya. She is the one to be credited.

What was there in the mail?! Is that regarding your offer?! She guessed. But that was bloody right.

How can she be so accurate?! Moreover how can she be so confident about me?! I felt so well for the confidence that she is having on me.

Yeah. They have mentioned it as offer letter. And an official mail regarding the date of joining. This is it. I declared!

So happy for you dear. I am very happy that you did it. Your hard work did work well. What can I say more than that?! Priya was totally ecstatic and no one could stop her now.

The Journey

Hey! You have got something to prepare now. Be serious and work hard. I am always going to be there to help you out. Said priya with great excitement.

It was never an exciting thing for me. And I hardly remember for what position I had applied for. And have no absolute idea of what to do. It was said that, the interview date was just 3 days from now. There is no way I can get there. And to make things even worse, the location of the Interview was at Hyderabad. With that, I thought this was the end.

But at the other end, priya took this one so very seriously and started referring sites for the concepts which can be a handy resource during the preparation. What can I say more about such a sweet heart?! She is my angel. Its time I felt like taking life seriously. I can never let Priya’s hopes down. She was more concerned about me. I need to make her feel comfortable.

And I have managed to collect all the resources that I am need of preparation and was deeply involved in the process for nearly close to 17 hours with the help of Priya. She made concepts clear to me and with her by my side, even the deadly programs are like those awesomely written lyrics by one direction. These programs are now that lovely.

Before I could think of further planning I have totally forgot the concept of booking the tickets for my journey. And I need to rush to get my tickets confirmed. And that’s when it struck me about asking Priya to accompany me. Even though it’s never going to be an easy plan to execute, I don’t want to miss out on asking her.

I got up with a jerk and called her up and explained what was on my mind. I had managed to put up a face which can make melt anyone for sure. I sometimes feel good about pleasing anyone.

Priya took a while to respond and came up with the same answer which is a big “NO”. I felt a bit lost. It’s something that I couldn’t take it so easy.

Jay. I cannot make it. Hope you understand. It’s a matter of 2-3 days. 

How do you think that I can manage things at home?! 1 day is fine. 

But 2-3 is never in the scene.

OMG! During the process of discussion I had completely overlooked the concept of Airlines that was existed in India. It hardly takes an Hour to reach Hyderabad from Chennai and we can be back by evening itself once after the interview. I felt overly excited and narrated the same that I thought about. I always had this poor friend who will always be the only financier of my batch. I promised him that I would pay him back as soon as possible.
