A dream job...The first salary

Finally a DTC night service stops at the bus stand and Rishabh quickly gets into the bus. He finally reaches home at around 1 a.m. in the night and throws himself into the bed without even thinking of changing. The most awaited morning finally comes and they are all into the office at 8:30. No one is interested in sitting on their computer unless and until some words come from the management, and the word does come. Each employee is called one by one and rather than getting cheque, they are given a cash of 2850 rupees as their first installment (!!!) of salary. The reason they are given is that the employees have not yet completed their project and their training development process is below the mark so they need to improve their performance in the next 15 days to get the remaining amount of salary. Everyone is stunned, but still nobody wants to come forward to oppose the management and so they accept the 2850 rupees in hopes that they will get the remaining salary in 15 days, so nothing to worry guys…keep moving. Rishabh is busy calculating how he will survive, giving 1350 as his part of the rent, 1450 to the tiffin service, and the full month ahead with no money and to go to Patna also to attend his cousin’s marriage. He decides to cancel the train ticket so that he will at least get back 250 rupees from the ticket.

To be continued...
