A Story on National Integration
Hemanth, Kaushik, Jerold and Sukhil are close friends. They’ve been working as a software engineers in United States. They are Indians from different states. One day when they are working, there was a phone call from India. The message was “your mother Sujatha expired” but they didn’t inform whose mother expired because Hemanth and Koushik mother’s name is Sujatha. So they started to cry. Hemanth became unconscious; they don’t know what to do. Immediately they made a call to India and made it sure that it was Koushik’s mother. Therefore right away he asked permission from his MD to go to India. Initially he refused, and then he told if you work continuously for 24 hours you’ll get permission. Hence Sukhil and Koushik shared the work as 12 hours each and started to work. Meanwhile their friends Hemanth and Jerold, “Do you know what they did” they went to Airport and made the arrangements also arranged a cab from company to Airport to drop Koushik. When 12 hours got over Koushik and Sukhil came to meet their boss to get permission. When the boss came to know about the arrangements were made and work shared by their friends. He was surprised and shocked by seeing their co-operation, and told “even though you are from different parts of India after coming here only you’ve met one another”. I don’t know you guys how you’ve done it. Coarsely they replied “yes sir, though we’re from different states, differs in our dressing, food habits, language and etc. etc. we are Indians”. They said proudly.
