Three - Not Idiots But Software Engineers
Visit my new portal bharaththippireddy.net
In the beautiful garden city of Bangalore live three good friends. Hailing from the same village they are not just friends but best friends from school days who shared the success and cigarettes, punishments and beedis. It took them two years to realize that job search unlike college is a drainage. Recently one after the other they got in to a small software company. Seven thousand rupees is the salary and not a paisa more. On the other hand their monthly expenses are ten thousand rupees and not a paisa less. They can’t ask their parents to help. Not because they are shy or they feel responsible but because of their build up in their village an year ago. As per their parents they work for Oracle, TCS and Microsoft.
If they have to visit home only one of them will go at a time. Not because their presence at work is so important that the projects get delayed. The catch here is - if one of them has to go home the other two should donate their gold chains and rings to the pawn broker. When we say we work for Oracle we need to accommodate the expectations and expenses from friends and family right?
Those three whose names when uttered can terminate the mess accounts.
Those three whose cards when used can crash the ATM machines.
The three when they enter can make the To-let boards fall on the ground are...
Rambabu - Competing with Mohammad Gajini he recently finished his sixteenth wedding invasion/interview. After eating the sweets and talking to the girl he informed his father that he liked the first girl he met a couple of years ago. Telling him that she is a mother of two now, his father requested him not to come back.
Avinash - Enjoying every moment he is not in a hurry for money or marriage. He is the only satellite out of the three which is far from planet Saturn AKA Sani.
Baala - Earthquake or a tsunami he will complete his work whether its kitchen or office.
It is neither a normal Monday nor an auspicious one but a very important end of the month salary day Monday.
Avinash used his 2G Bank ATM card and punched the pin.
Talking 2G Bank ATM:
(Printing the receipt) It’s party time Dude. Your salary has been credited to your account.
Instead of the regular seven thousand the receipt showed fourteen thousand. Surprised the three of them heard the same background score - "Kaj ra rae ... Kaj ra re Kaj Ra rae"
Do you think they have credited my salary twice?
It happened to me once. Excited I have partied with the cashI had in my valet and the money in my account was gone the next day.
How can the banks do that?
As long as they have the money they can do anything. You should withdraw the entire amount.
You mean the entire seven thousand?
No the whole fourteen thousand.
When you got money you should know how to spend it and if you don’t know how to spend it you should not have any money. Looks like girls and money run for those who don't care for them.
He shouts for an Auto.
Where are we going?
What about the work?
The stock markets won't crash if we are off for a day. So let’s enjoy!
That afternoon , under the supervision of Rambabu they watched 'Harry Porter - It All Ends' at PVR Royal Class paying 500 Rs per Ticket .After some expensive shopping at Brigade and other important duties at NASA pub by the time they reached home it was 2 AM in the morning and seven thousand in Avinashs valet.
By the time their hangovers were cured it was 1 PM the next day.Rambabu used his ATM card and punched the pin.
Talking 2G banks ATM:
Why the hell did you put your card in? I think the number zero was invented for people like you. Balance is Zero Babu Rambabu.
Shocked, the three of them hear the same background score -
"Jina Yahaa Marnaa Yahaa.."
(Looking at Avinash) my only doubt is whether they have deposited my salary in your account or did they pull the amount back from mine since they paid you twice?
Dont even think about it.
No i am just saying...
(Even before Rambabu completes his sentence) I will not give you a penny.
(Looking at Rambabu Sarcastically) In spite of all this, your philosophy of life is super mamu.
Looks like girls and money run away from those who care too much.
