As you like it

Sanjeev slowly hung up the phone and contemplated the conversation he had just had.

The voice on the other end seemed to have been distorted as if it was talked through some electronic scrambling device, gravelly and rough, but most of all, urgent. The man had almost pleaded Sanjeev to maintain secrecy with the information. And right now, only Sanjeev needed to know.


It was a mission of the utmost importance he had been charged with, and from the tone of the voice, Sanjeev knew: failure was not an option. Though he had only been working in this office for only one month, he understood how serious this man was. The man needed his help.


The above plot was given as a part of writing competition in my company. We were asked to take the plot further from this point.
Now...lets see how many of you can take it further...and how. Post your version in the comments section.
I will publish my version of this plot on Friday :-)

The man was his manager and he was asking the impossible. Tickets to the movie Sivaji, first day first show!! He had only one ticket with him and it was already a long wait for Sanjeev to see his thalaivar on the big screen.

He had to make a choice and he hated to be in this situation. He fired up Microsoft Word on his computer and started typing his resignation letter.He was not going to part with his ticket. The B.O.S.S meant more to him than his boss.

Sanjeev pondered for a while. It was quite a bane being entrusted on a mission like this. Though it did help his reputation with the big guy of the office, it could also mean eating dust if he fell flat on his face. He wondered why this man was so particular that it should not be known to anyone else. Maybe it was because of the competition .What if the guy in the 15th floor knew what was happening? He has been trying too hard for this too.Sanjeev decided it was best to keep it secret in his interests too. Otherwise he would have to help the 15th floor guy too and it would be too hard on him. He would be caught in between 2 giants who would very easily crush him down like a mosquito.

So he picked up the phone. Dialed the number “Hello amma , its me listen I need a favor, I need to you give an L.K.G seat for my boss’s daughter in your school. Its very important ma… yeah I know it’s very late and everything but you have gotto do it ma…donation would not be a problem too… He knows you are the correspondent and that you can influence the decisions.. Please ma.”

He kept the phone down with a sigh of relief. The job was done. He just hoped he could get hold of someone when he needed an LKG seat for his kid.

He tried to sort the great problem by himself,but then,he could not,it was not his are of expertise.But saying 'I do not know' to the senior would be a shame to his name and fame.He could not even imagine cutting a sorry figure in front of his senior.

He quickly called up his wife and slowly,but deliberately asked,'Rasathukku uluthamparuppu podanuma illa kadalaparuppa??,enga boss kekkarar' he added,just in case his wife mistook it for his own doubt.He even ignored the sound of her clasping the head in irritation. 'Sollu' he shouted,'please', he knew he should not be.
'Paruppe podama rasam vaikkalamnu sollunga.'

The call was cut,the mission on its way to success.
