Sunday afternoon, Pavan is in department. He suddenly shouts “Oh My God!”.
A burst of intense light is seen in the room, and then there somebody appears.
Aatma (Pavan): “Geez, who are you?”
Paramaatma: “Yeah right, is this some kinda joke? Didnt you just call me? or is this wrong address?” *checks His GPS navigator*
A: “Whaaat? Is this really you?”
P: “Nope, its my hologram. Ofcourse, so tell me, you called me?”
A: “OMG, I mean WOW.. I am so surprised.. wait a minute.. I have called you so many times before, but why didnt you meet me earlier?
P: I must have been in out of coverage area. You see.. sometimes signal is weak. *meanwhile, checks His cell for missed calls*
A: heh? what about June ending when I needed you badly?
P: Oh that? was busy watching FIFA.. totally cool wasnt it? ok, could you make that quick, child? I have to catch the LA flight in 20 minutes.
A: uhmm! sure.. I am confused.. about career, life and stuff.. could you help me unravel the mysteries..
P: “Just a minute dude” lifts his cell and talks “hey Krrish.. wassap man? ha.. yeah.. sure.. 9:30 Himalayas? special screening of Krrish-the-movie? he he kidding.. should be there.. cool.. chill.. laters.. ciao”
A: *awestruck* you talk this lingo?
P: totally.. this is in. So, have you made up your mind?
A: ok.. grad school sucks.. could you make it interesting? I am just 2/3 months away from being done, and it is increasingly getting painful..
P: tell me something new.. been there, done that
P: yeah.. I did my higher studies under a Prof who was from Jesus’s school. thats where I picked up English. It sucks in school right now.. just put up with it, have patience and you should be good.. things would be fine. Trust me yaar.
A: and what about job? I am skeptical how the market is..
P: pfft.. you have to work your way up da.. just like I did.. have patience and be confident of yourself.. I could give a reco.. but stand up on your feet..
A: you seem so cool unlike the image I had in mind..
