“I want to work and be independent, father,” said Radha.
“With your kind of grades and no experience, you have no future. Just get married and leave my house.” announced her father.
Radha had stomped out on her father. In a sombre mood, she was sitting on the empty bench by water. A tap on shoulder woke Radha up from her deep reverie. A man in early forties announced,
“I am inspector D’Souza, your father’s friend. Deshpande said you are looking for a break? I am looking for a hardworking, outgoing and energetic trainee. If interested, meet me in my office. We shall train you and help you with your college graduation.”
Radha could not believe her ears. World appeared bright and cheerful again. She wanted to rush home, hug her foul tempered father and touch his feet. Her lucky break has just arrived.
