The Alchemist

You were born no immortal
Yet you outstrip we mortal
Heaven gifted you, virtue to serve
Men, women, children those that deserve
Your help, by and by walking in
Hope against hope; you will bring
All bliss in their mind
Folk knew it rest in your hand. 

I heard once from my cousin
Whilst he did call on. Neither heard nor seen
Ere such adventurous tale
You took no ale
To make your wayward Solomon’s mine
In eve you forgot to dine
Hunting for the mysterious treasure
You did but for others pleasure.

Herculean task; you  tried time and again
But all in vain.
Through rocky cliff and amidst wood
Home ward returned you in grave mood.
In your dream you cooked up alchemy
Lead to gold you change by
Your own wit but, in full sound
You cried in your sleep on the ground.


My wife, Me and Resignation.

You may wonder why I relate above three, I must admit, it shocked me more as it would surprise you. Of course, the former two is legally related but in no way any relates to RESIGNATION.
It wasn’t easy for my wife to decide to quit her job or to anyone either. But, what can one do? If his/ her charm to work is snatched away, when one is forcibly sent to the lesser importance workplace, when one have to bear the penalty of other’s mistake, when one’s entitlement are barred. Still she stayed firm against all odds. The idea to study (further) and quitting might not have generated in my wife’s head. If she was allowed work where she was, if she was given her concession what she deserves and not made to beg.

Now she quit. I don’t have a problem nor should other have. I am happy for she would be free – free from harassment, free from insult, free from mental torment, moreover free from the work where she wasn’t meant. Should anyone feel that I have to quit, I would like to know which rule book states, “If both husband and wife are employed in the same organization, when one resigns, others too have to quit”. I am asked to do same. A day or night won’t be enough for someone to decide whether to quit or not.        
It’s too early for me to comment on my retirement. I will let you know when I decide to do. And please do note I can’t make my lifetime decision over a night. I have a wife and a daughter to feed, father, mother, sisters and brothers to look after. Regarding my wife’s resignation, call her and ask, for her reason to quit. She might explain you very well than me.
As of now, I have not yet decided. Nor I want someone to decide for me.
