What is the best advice your mother ever gave you (Story 1)
<Conversation happened in Tamil, in car – I was driving . On our way to home after shopping around 8 30 PM Saturday.>
Maa : So she is from Pune ?
Me : Nope, from Indore maa!
Me: Don’t worry, She already rejected me. And she is thinking about her parents. Also She is leaving tomorrow to Pune. She has got a transfer.
Maa : Hmmm … !
Me: I feel like seeing her and I’m try convincing her one more time. Can I go and meet her now ?
Maa : Okay . . . Drop me at the near by bus stop . Go meet her … I’ll wait for you.
< Stopped the car and looked her at . All confused . And I was like. . is she really telling me this???? > Amazed and Amused.
Me : But she asked me not to come . Not even to Central station tomorrow for her send off.
<In a polite way >
Maa : when a girl says “No” respect it. Understand why she says no. If she wanted, she could have played with you instead she has given you a reason. And she is strong on it. Respect her !! Love should be mutual.
< Started my car. Reached home>
Next day morning …. she knew was I sad.
Maa : Maintain your dignity and self respect. It is ok to be rejected.
<And this epic line . . .>

And as usual she was making fun of me. . . ! We started laughing … 🙂 😀
What is the best advice your mother ever gave you (Story 2)
Me: He (manager) is not responding properly. Unable to use my visa efficiently now ,Maa!! . He has preferred my senior to me because my senior is not married yet.
Maa : what?? Go and talk to your HR.
Me : Maa HR, Manager and my supervisor all in same team . big cheats.
Maa: But this is not fair.
Me : yep, and he told me that I was irritating him. My onsite manager had a talk with him to give me the opportunity. But these offshore cheats are not preferring me. Maa ! Big world of politics here . . This is the 5th time I’m talking to them.
Maa: See you don’t have to beg them. I did not bring you up like this . Be brave and quit your job right now.
<Again all confused and amazed by her talk >
Within next 5 minutes I submitted my resignation.
Now serving my notice period at Cognizant. July 29th is last date . No other opportunities in hand. Not sure what’s gonna happen. But happy though. 🙂
