He was never a believer of fortune tellers, to speak mildly. Actually, he had only contempt for people that made a living out of fortune telling.
“These people live out of common man’s fealty”, he would tell his friends and family and anyone that cared to listen, “how come they never see their own future?”
Everyone listened Akash Banerjee, a self made man. Went abroad on a scholarship, earned his degree and returned with a high paying job. “Life my friend is ninty five percent hardworkd and five percent luck,” he would proclaim smoking his cigar sorrounded by friends in his living room,”work hard people success will be at your feet.”
Those were days when Akash Banerjee was at his peak, socially and professionally. Then bad luck struck. In quick succession he lost his son and his job. Always followed by success, Mr. Banerjee was clueless to handle his downturn.
