    Photo story contest

    I am attaching a photo of a toy that I saw on the footpath; I liked it, bought it without bargaining and enjoyed it at home with the kids. I bought it from a footpath in Bangalore. It cost Rs.200 only. I feel it is worth for the manufacture of such an excellent toy.

    Life of a Pizza Delivery Boy

    Suresh has joined a famous Pizza manufacturing company situated at Abids in Hyderabad. Though he has the two wheeler for the purpose of door delivery, the company categorically denied giving any extra expenses over and above the fixed salary of just 8000 per month. As he was desperate to have a first time job, he accepted this pizza delivery job much to annoy of his parents and friends by accepting to deliver Pizzas by bycycle. Why he joined this job because he want to self finance his own studies without disturbing or expecting money from the parents. As he is the fourth member of the house and the father was the only earning member, he felt that asking for money now and then would bother the father and he would have to arrange, beg or borrow from others, and thus he made his mind to work for part time delivery boy in the Pizza company. Though initially the company also understood his plight and cooperated with him to do part time job after college hours, later the orders for Pizzas has increased during the lunch time and thus the company asked Suresh to accept the day time full time job and not the part time job during evenings. For Suresh it is a challenging situation as he cannot leave the job as even that pittance salary matters much to him as he can pay the exam fees and other pending fees demanded by the college to certain extent. But when started attending the day time job he obviously lost the attendance in college. the college principal warned him to maintain attendance or face action. So he put a day leave for the Pizza company and stayed in the house. On noticing his absence, the Pizza company owner asked him to come immediately to attend big orders. But Suresh denied the job citing time constrains and loosing college attendance. But one of the customer to whom Suresh was delivering the Pizza regularly has noticed his absence and called the company to send Pizza with Suresh only. That was the turning point for him. Though reluctantly Suresh went there, the customer inquired about his personal problems and why he is working so hard forgoing college. When he said his motive,the customer immediately offered financial help for free till his final studies and he need not even return the money. Suresh was overwhelmed with that offer and that brought tears in his eyes instantly. That day he felt that every job when done with dedication will not only mitigate our urgent problems financially but also bring people closer to reach to us.

    K Mohan,

    Times without number you have been gently advised by both editors and fellow-members to read a thread's text properly. Despite this, you seem to be simply skimming over the title and barely glancing at the text of many threads. Look at your response to this thread. Have you not read the instructions for this contest? Your entry will not be considered for the main prizes for not following instructions.
