Decorations hold part of the Valentine’s Day celebrations. It all depends on to who is decoration and for whom we are doing it. Our Division also wanted to have a bash on that day. And Decoration was not part of the celebration but it was the main course itself. The sorry people were the office boys working in our division.
They were asked to tie “Heart-Shaped” Red Balloons in all the desks, pathways, corridors, doors and entrance. They have to blow, tie and also need to show some creativity to make decoration more attractive. And a supervisor is assigned for this purpose.
These guys were very busy for that whole week because of continuous client visits and would have spent more than 12 hours in office. After that, they have to blow these balloons, everyone were sorry for them.
A supervisor made a comment, ”Sir, ponna masam republic daykkuda etha mathiri kodi yetha sollale, atha sonnavathu konjam santhoshma pannuvom, ellati indepencence daykkuda paravalla. Ethukku poi eppadi pannraga” (If they asked to do for republic day, we would have happily done this, even for independence day too, but for this day). I know he is not a complaining man.
We can only acknowledge his question but wasn’t able to answer. Just went and helped him blowing 8 – 10 balloons for my cabin and around. J could not help much.
