She was nervous as she stepped into the drab office for the meeting. At least there were flowers to look at among the piles of stacked boxes while she waited. Rajan entered cheerfully and shook her hand.

“Lovely day isn’t it? Hope you could find our office easily.”

“Oh yes! No problem.”

“Please, how can I help you Mrs. Karthik”.

“Actually” she hesitated. “How do I say this? As you know, you owe the bank more than 10 lakhs. I have come to tell you that if this situation continues, we would need to confiscate your assets. Hope you understand.”

    1. Thank you! Yes. She doesn’t like this job at all. She tries her best to be gentle. But that is far too difficult and actually against her job. You caught that right! They both are in a difficult situation.

    1. Thanks Penny! Every job is tough in its own way. And everybody has a side that might not be immediately apparent. That is what I wanted to bring out here. Just because someone is in a position of power, does not mean they enjoy it.

  1. Such politeness – a debt collect who really enjoys their job, maybe, or maybe it was false humour – I felt sorry for them both. And all those people’s lives in those cardboard boxes. Nice that we are not moving (relocating) in this one. Well done.
