Well I am staying home, doing nothing (as per current social views) though I humbly contradict with them, I may not be earning money, a single rupee but I do work guys, I cook, clean, do all sort of things which home runners do… ha ha!!!! This taunt is for my friends who have bugged me to no end since january, “how could you stay at home doing nothing!!!! Go out and get a job. Or do some tutions from home.. do any thing!!! Get out of home!!!” … I play deaf with them and love it.
How mindsets change with time. When I was approaching my youth my family did not co operated me in my career, because they thought nice ladies don’t work.
Yes, that’s how it is still thought in some of small town reputed famillies. So they acted like anti current to all my career attempts.
As a result I could not make a proper career and started to try for private concern jobs after crossing my thirties. My sole intention behind joining jobs was more passing time than earning money. Soon I found out that the level of sacrifice required to work in these small organisation is not worth the trouble. Actually I wont take the earth in lieu of that much sacrifice.
I preferred utilising my time at home, which consists of only two people (mostly me, because my brother stays out of west bengal mostly). I was actually planning to work as a MT from home this plan was derailed by a failed medical transcription in a fraud institute. I ended up losing twenty thousand rupee, six months and a job (the one I left to join this organisation).
But for the part of staying at home, when I look back I feel content about decision, staying at home instead of working for these small organisations. Which don’t offer the minimum salary or work environment to their employees. These organisations shamelessly encash the unemployment of the country and play with their health and safety. Which can be swallowed by people who dont have enough to eat but not by a person who is educated and have enough qualifications and certainly dignity.
I still remember my last office, which was a perfect nightmare partly due to extreme rudeness of one of the bosses (i will give him 1000 in scale of 100 for rudeness) and atleast half a dozen of other reasons.
They almost succeeded in killing/maiming me by crashing false ceiling on me, it was sheer luck that I shifted my position a few seconds before that ceiling crashed down.
The ceiling was being pulled down and i was instructed to stay in the office, they were away. none of the persons pulling down told me that if that ceiling crashed on my head it will atleast disfigure me. I certainly asked them.
My bosses were certainly safe, far away from office, I was left to guard it.
Wherever I go I will not forget the two years I spent in that organisation and their shameless exploitation of their employees. But they they helped me to finally make up my mind, after ten years of trying my luck in small private concerns...
In place of wasting my toil after these people I prefer staying at home and improving my writing skills… its far better utilisation of time.
This is the beginning of third year of an existence I never imagined I will be living- being financially dependent on someone.
I am absolutely at my patience’s end and am hundred percent sincere about trying any genuine free lance job on writing, that is I write and you pay, I am not keen to hit jackpot, fair payment will be fine enough for me.
I will like to clearly tell the robbers looking for fools to dupe to keep off – this one is too experienced to fall for your traps. I have tried for years to get a genuine, fair paying home-based job; the last time I was duped was in 2008 by a phony medical transcription institute, it gobbled up 30000 rupee and almost an years hard work, left me really sick in guts. Well, I am ready to take chances again but no longer being fooled. So, if any literary agent thinks that my works are worth it, I won’t mind sharing profits with him/ her; the percentage or fees for services will be negotiable. But please, don’t ask me to get a membership first, speak in trustworthy language. Or, any genuine publisher, publishing agency can gladly contact me, I will consider paying the fees if I think the offer isgenuine and reasonable.
