Although not an easy choice to make, Arjun decided to ride the wave along its flow. He thought to himself as capable of finding a way out as always when the need arose, all to cover his foul. He avoided meeting with the human resources department of the firm on several occasions with lies and excuses. If he doesn’t create a business travel for himself in the company’s capacity, he makes up a role he shouldn’t be featuring in. All these to avoid the due diligence and document inspections he presumed would follow the new appointment. He was right anyway, a lot of his colleagues that were blessed with similar recommendations already did the needful. Now Arjun had no hiding.
Thanks to his luck and brilliance, he was able to hide behind a finger for six months. But no one truly gets wiser than the ones that are monitoring his moves. On a cold Monday morning after the weekly manager’s briefing to begin the week, the Human resources team took their investigation to Arjun’s office space. He was literally sweating in cold weather and under the Air Conditioner in his office. The little man is just full of the con that it takes the human resource team up to four hours to spot a leak in his document. He had presented a fake certificate to the company to get the internship job.
With a stretch of the weary and busted con on his bogey face, Arjun pleaded favour of the HR team but they wouldn’t yield. He told the history, sad tales and reasons behind his moves, but who believes a liar twice if not for their own peril. The team recommended to the company that Arjun step down from his position for certificate fraud. His end of the term stipend was also withheld. He developed bogged red eyeballs almost immediately but no one cared. What mattered to all was his busted deceit.
