List of Complaints & Imagination horses
They pushed everything out during the week, she was like an ostrich with her head buried in the work sand... she avoided going to the showroom through the week,
she met Mr Ranjan at the Daily Perk three times though, around 9 AM... tues, Wed or Thursday, on Thursday he admitted "Its a pleasure to see you Ms Iyer,
so when my 8 O Clock ends I come by to grab a cup of coffee so I can wish you a good morning...
He seemed really impressed unlike the brat of her son. Baldev communicated all the changes, Ranjan in turn promised they
will try and accomplish everything required in order to get on to reliable connectivity as quickly as possible... emails on that started trickling in giving
her hope by Friday.
In fact one had the heading Ms IYER'S LIST OF "Complaints" and it was from R&B!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND HAD COPIED MR BANSAL
RASCAL!! Like she was not being professional, she was not a team player and spent her days coming up with lists on clients
Like she was cooking up the deficiencies at Excelsior
ITS NOT MY BAAP KI COMPANY U JERK
TAKE IT PERSONALLY IF U WANT BUT YOUR OPERATIONS SUCK
MILO MUJHE, I WILL PUSH U OFF THE 20TH
She was too furious at him to respond "TO ALL" she almost threatened Baldev with dire consequences if he didnt handle it "appropriately"
He was beginning to be baffled by her whole behavior
Any way Mr Ranjan ...He was wealthy, he could have the Air Tel CEO parked at the Gurgaon showroom if he wanted to, she cursed mutely
Amma was upset she wasnt spending enough time home... like during the break up with Subbu, she speculated with Appa in the mornings
"What could be wrong with her?"
"She is really busy, the new client, though they are wealthy and its a huge operation, is not as sophisticated as a multi national company Madhu, they are JUST A CAR DEALERSHIP ONLY" Appa said
There seemed to be a visible resentment in his tone since Samyukta's baby shower, like he had HOPED something for a second when he saw II &
R&B stand side by side talking with Mr Bansal and that image had somehow given him SOME HOPE
Though his mind would have never agreed considering the great Punjabi Iyer divide, the class divide the wealth divide, the diet divide
The Senior Bhalla scandal
There were ONLy divides nothing common
Oh! The only common thing was, THEY BOTH LOOKED SO GOOD TOGETHER
Appa had seen that that evening
The reason Appa was so eager about Srikanth (USUALLY AMMA was the one stalking him on II's marriage issues) was because he was in a way trying to erase that image of seeing teh two together
Nobody knew where II was @ in this whole drama... they had no clue what was going through her mind... they ONLY knew she HATED him
Or so she had told them...
So it was a good thing then Srikanth was coming
Vandu Akka also said the same thing to Amma and Appa on Thursday evening, when she viisted II was not home yet
She told Amma how much R&B is mean to her, Vandu hasnt seen him yet... so her protectiveness for her sister was untainted
Amma Appa KNOWS how R&B looks... and Appa had even seen him look at II at Samyukta's
When she was singing... Appa felt there was something more to professional rivalry and work difference of opinions
Amma and Vandu? NO CLUE
II didnt take any care in dressing up, not after that green saree green font fiasco...
She was hoping for the week to be over soon
It was Friday and she was working at her desk, a HUGE bunch of flowers arrived with a box of expensive Belgian chocolates
The guy was wearing a Excelsior uniform... her intestines took the bus out of her mouth...
"Aapke liye" he said
OFCOURSE MERE LIYE HAI, NAHI TO YAHA KYON LAAYEGA? U KNOW WHERE BALDEV SITS, ASHWINI SITS... OFCOURSE ITS FOR ME.. Rakshasan... that familiar slow burning heat enevloped her
"its NOTHING" left her cube like a bunch of bees were attacking it..."its OK EVEN IF ITS ONLY SEX" started unpacking all over her cube... putting pictures on the wall and setting up furniture
BUT... II was FURIOUS
"Kisne bheja?" she asked civilly
"SIR NE" he said
"Ranjan Sir ne?" she asked smiling suddenly calm
"NAHI" "Chhotey SIR NE" he said and FLED the very next second
She wore a green cotton kurta and a yellow chudidaar from Stop... NO DUPATTA... ARGHHH
She stormed out of her office and took the elevator
HOW DARE HE
HOW DARE HE
I JUST CLOBBERED HIM ON MONDAY, HE SENDS ME FLOWERS ON FRIDAY
Rakshasan... what does he think he is...
Like THATS GOING TO HELP...
She stormed into his room
"Your flowers!!!" she said slamming it on the desk
He was on his imac.. on his lap... feet up on the table swinging side to side on his chair like he was hoping he were at an amusement park
CLEAN SHAVEN again... in a coffee corduroy shirt and SHORTS and flip flops...
He looked up from his work like he didnt care she was here
No excitement no joy no anger no REACTION
Pesavum maatan REACT um panna maatan Rakshasan
HE WONT TALK NOR WILL HE REACT...
DO NOT SEND ME FLOWERS, OR CHOCOLATES EVER AGAIN
We have a professional relationship ONLY Mr Bhalla
Dont let your imagination horses run WILD... they might flee the ranch some day" sarcastic
He let her rant for the three minutes... his eyes taking in the untidy tendrils all over her face from her new hair style, her face flushed, her bindi crooked... the plunging neckline of her kurta
The stone on her nose ring matched her kurta, he felt something stir on the inside
But at that very moment she was DONE
she turned and started stomping out...
"It was from Samyukta actually" he said softly, she hadnt bothered to read the card She just decided to jump off the 20th...
