ON BEING STALKED

Hi Honey,how are you da, I have just reached Narita..I should be reaching Chennai tomorrow night ..said Rajesh

Why tomorrow night da,its been a week already..said Suparna

Not getting the connecting at Changi da,Can you take the trouble of making a room booking in the transit hotel at Changi .You know its eternally under renovation and on arrival I may not get accomodation.I just want to rest for sometime there da.Please..

Come on why dont you ask your pet secretary Anju to do it,I am sure you would be talking to her every halh an hour ,on some pretext or other

Come on honey,ever since she joined the company you have been pulling my legs

Sure da will do the booking.Still, please make a last minute attempt to make it by the earlier flight da..missing you one hell

Same here too da


Suparna and Rajesh,a wonderful couple,both working very hard to achieve what they deserve.Dinks by choice,they were looked upon as ideal couple by all and sundry.Always full of fun and laughter,snatching time for themselves between their busy schedules and endless travel.

Recently Suparna had joined a MNC and was literally drowned in work 20 hours a day and Rajesh busy expanding his business in Japan. Suparna was slightly uncomfortable with the behaviour of her boss Praramb and had mentioned this to Rajesh .Her boss made her uncomfortable by asking many personal questions and sort of acting fresh ,but was well short of what could be called as harrasment..Her saviour was her peer Rohit who understood her problems and often doubled up and completed some of her assignments very subtly.Suparna was grateful to him.She was particularly worried when she was travelling with her boss,but fairly comfortable travelling with Rohit.

Of late she felt she was being stalked but couldnt clearly make out who it was.She started imagining it could be Praramb. She confided in Rajesh about her discomfort.Rajesh assured her that it was purely figment of her imagination arising out of her dislike for her boss,who was much elder to her and wouldnt be doing such a thing ,especially when awareness was on penalty for harrasment was high.

One day Suparna confided this to her best friend in office Renu and good friend Rohit.He adviced her to ignore it and these things would get solved by themselves.
Renu ,said her brother being a senior officer in crime branch of police and it would be best if she took his suggestion.Rohit was uncomfortable with the idea and felt involvement of police would not be advisable.Suparna being a modern girl wanted to hold the bull by its horn and requested Renu to go ahead discussing it with her brother.

The next morning Suparna left for Hydrabad,and as she was returning back to chennai,she again felt she was being stalked but really couldnt pin point who it was.
The next two days in Chennai,she didnt have any respite.

As she was drowned in her work,late in the evening Renu walked in and sat across..

Suparna,my brother called up .

Its like this,its true this guy has been stalking you.They caught hold of him and took a confessional statement from him......

Suparna thought to herself,so it was true and as Renu continued the monolog she was drained off her energy..

Realising her state Renu dropped her home.

Back at home ,lying on the couch ,the entire thing was going in her mind again and again...


WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO ME RAJESH



Rajesh had hired a private detective agency to keep a tab on Suparna..and when the police arrested the shadow man, he let out everything

Thank you for another wonderful story sir!!!!!
These are spices of the modern society....dinks, late works hours, friends/secretary more in touch then parents/spouses, travel and loneliness.....

all ingrediants that create the insecurity....a new phase of understanding this has to be developed....till then I think I will open a detective agency :)

Compassion Unlimitted said...

@ c e e d y
Absolutely true..Insecurity ,the demon in disguise !!
Well,it manifests in different forms and result is the detective agencies..Great business acumen friend !

Sh@s said...

Sad...in today's jet-set life trust goes out of the window. Enjoyed your narration. You should take up writing seriously and get your stories published. Do think about it seriously.

Compassion Unlimitted said...

@Sh@s
Trust.hmm...If only it was available in Supermarket or a Mall one would buy it,perhaps ony during discount season.lol

Thats nice of you Sh@s to share your encouraging views on the writes !
