Her Stern Response...!

If you tolerate it first time,
You are ought to follow it next time!
If you make it clear at the start,
You are all free throughout!


She was the general secretary of the prestigious ‘arts and cultural club’ of their college. The club had been run by students for years, and now this was the first time that a girl got the opportunity to lead the team and that too being the new comer of the college.

She was a beautiful & dynamic lady with attractive eyes and soft black hair. She topped the arts and cultural competitions of that year and could get this royal responsibility on to her shoulders. She was everyone’s favorite as she had been an awesome stage performer, with an apt confidence and winsome skills.

Though there were two rival groups in the college, she always encouraged both of them by giving them equal opportunities and freedom. But of course, at her heart she was bit more close to one of the groups, which consisted a bunch of boys and girls. She was very jovial. They all liked her and tried to be more sincere as she was very strict about the discipline.

Now, a guy from the same group had an unnecessary quarrel with their rival group. So, to escape the punishment, he thought of approaching the higher management through her, without revealing the truth to her. Initially she agreed to go along with him. Fortunately, she could get to know the truth on butterfly effect. Though she had come to know it before a couple of days itself, she did not reveal it as she wanted to cut short the positive chances of that guy to escape the punishment that he deserved.

As she entered their club common room, he said “hey, we need to rush now. The meeting will start with in five minutes”

Rest of her good friends were not interested in allowing her to attend that meeting as that guy had been very rude at his attitude and was completely on the wrong side. But they could not tell her about it as she had never concluded people based on gossips or based on other’s opinions.

“I’ll not be coming to the meeting now” she said strictly.

Everyone out there including this guy got surprised on her answer.

With a high pitched voice he said “Why?”

“I know what you are and how you are going to manage your mistake with my face. And let me tell you clearly… I don’t want to come along with you in this matter. Go ahead and grab your chances alone”

“But why?”

She just smiled at him and walked towards her cabin.

“But…” he tried to add something, and was interrupted by her.

“Look Mr. If I have to reciprocate, every one is equal to me, including you” she said by pointing her finger at him as rest of her team mates stared at her with an unseen and unspoken joy.

If you tolerate it first time,
You are ought to bare it next time!
If you make it clear at the start,
You are all free throughout!

Pramoda,

Very true. I attended a seminar on domestic violance today and one of the speakers said the same words - " If you accept it first time there will be second, third and many many more ".

Take care

Amity Me said...

Hey Prams,

I guess this is not fiction...

the laying down of rules from the beginning and sticking to it is really sound and strict management, which will result in properly handled disputes in the future, if there is any...

nice one...

are you a management graduate? if it's not too much of the asking?

love you dear!

:)

Being Pramoda... said...

Mustaf said...

Hi :)

I have visited your blog before,but commenting for the frst time.

Laying down the ground rules since the beginning is very important. It conveys a clear and transparent communication and also make the expectation from both the side very clear.Lesser the ambiguity, better everything..

Hi! Pramoda,
A wise one,the decisions has to come based on truths,and rules to be laid is easirer said than done and people who do,do succeed.

Dear Prams,
Each time when i reach here,i get a chance to recollect my colourful days.iw as the arts club secretary of little flower college,guruvayoor n i was so enthusiastic in getting the popular personalities!
rightly said,we must learn to say 'no' or protest at the right time!lessons from own life is more valuable!i learnt it that way!
have a great weekend!

Excellent lesson in values... The first time is the right time to take a position and assert our values.. if we falter or succumb to pressures, we will forever be guided by the precedence of the past...

Wonderful post.. Looking forward to more..

cheers
