Here’s an excerpt from Ishani’s winning story “Wedding after 50” that’s now published in Out of My Box
Ananya had separated 15 years ago, breaking all knots, from the abusive relationship. She had moved with her little daughter, Samaira at her parents’ place. Life wasn’t easy but it was still better than before. Her father was a pensioner and day by day with increasing expenses of school and medical, they faced financial crunch so Ananya had decided to resume her career.
One day, it was her birthday and Ananya was in Joggers Park for her morning walk. Her friend had called and so she relaxed on the bench nearby to continue her talk. She was not at all excited about her birthday rather was more tensed about securing a well-paid job. She was discussing her problems. It was then, that a young man, Rohan overheard her. Rohan was doing warm up exercises besides the bench where Ananya was seated.
After her phone disconnected, Rohan approached her, “Hey, Rohan Malhotra. I am sorry to overhear your conversation. Don’t take me wrong, I am actually Co-Founder of a Stock Broking Firm and also in need of a sincere employee. See, if the job profile suits you, it could be of your help.”
He offered his visiting card and asked her to appear for an interview. Ananya was first not convinced but looking at the visiting card, she realized he actually owned the firm.
