Twist of fate

Twist of fate


At the airport, a stranger offered Jennifer some money to carry a mysterious package onto the plane. The stranger assured her that it’s nothing illegal and pointed out that it had already been through the security check. Jennifer had serious doubts but needed the money and therefore agreed. After all, it was a God given opportunity. Her husband was suffering from kidney failure and today he was going to have a kidney transplant. She was lacking some money and now here it was. By the time she reached India most probably her husband’s surgery might have finished and she would be seeing him healthy again. Her joy knew no bounds.

As she entered the plane, curiosity hit her. She wanted to know what was inside it. She slowly ripped it open from the side and she was shocked beyond words. All this time she had been carrying drugs worth millions of dollars. She decided to dump the package as soon as she landed. She couldn’t afford to get arrested,  at least not today. Today she wanted to start a new life with her husband.

When she reached the airplane, she saw a man with a green bag sitting on a chair, reading a newspaper. She went and sat next to this man and started to talk to him in a casual manner. The man who introduced himself as Mr. John was a manager from Red Cross and had come here for some work. During the conversation, without the man noticing she slowly put the package into his bag.

She couldn’t wait to reach home. Oh! How much she longed for this day to see her husband. When she reached the hospital the doctor told her to come directly to his cabin. When she reached his cabin the doctor said, “Sorry Mrs. Jennifer we couldn’t save your husband. The donor, Mr. John from Red cross couldn’t reach here on time as he was arrested in the airport for carrying illegal drugs. Your husband’s body has been moved to the mortuary. I am extremely sorry.” She was shattered into a million pieces. She knew that she had indirectly killed her own husband……….



Game of Life

Game of Life

Elsa couldn’t be more happier. After 20 years her son was returning home. Her very own son. Elsa was only 17 when she had a son. She was unmarried and had to give up her son for adoption. Later on Elsa faced a lot of hurdles in her life. Her husband died few years after marriage and she had no other kids.

Life was meaningless to her. She felt it was some never ending journey. She had no family members living with her except for a servant boy named Rahul. He did not have a family and was staying with her since many years. He too was around 20, almost the same age as her son.

She tried almost every single way to find her son but all was in vain. Finally after years of searching God finally answered her prayers. A member of an NGO had promised her that he would trace her son and bring him home today. She was 100 per cent sure that her son would come today and now she wanted to live her life with her son alone. She had dismissed the servant boy Rahul yesterday but she was missing him now. There was something really special about hi,. But she was sure that her son would fill this void.

At 12 o’clock sharp, Mr Paul , the NGO member arrived at her home with a rather gloomy face. She got tensed. Paul said :”I am deeply sorry Mrs Elsa but I got bad news. I tried to trace your son but I couldn’t find him. Either he was adopted by someone else but there is no data to prove this or the most probable chance that he ran away when he was a kid. The orphanage he was put in no longer exists , so there aren’t any records available. I am extremely sorry but I really can’t do anything now. I will take your leave now. Bye.”

Elsa was shattered . All those years of waiting meant nothing in just a second. She was dreaming of her son day and night. Infact she even had prepared a room for him with all the best things of the world. She had made lots of food for him with love. But she was all alone now. She had enough. She did what she wanted to do the minute Mr Paul said those words. She jumped from the roof of her house.

Alas! She didn’t know the treasure which she was living with since many years. Rahul was her very own son. He had ran away from the orphanage at the age of ten and was doing all sorts of odd jobs as a way of earning. Under the same roof, neither the mother nor the son truly realized each other. The mother’s heart searched for someone else even though her everything was right beside her.

All Alone

Ok so this was one poem which i had written 4 yrs ago(yess i discovered it after 4 whole years XD). Anyways this was my first ever poem i wrote. I honestly feel my writing has improved ever since. So this aint great or anything. but here it is:



Alone she stands

Broken and torn


No one sees those smiles

That hide so many lies


No one sees the tears

That drown her every night


In the midst of darkness

she cries


Her skin like a paper

She cuts with a razor


She shouts

But no one helps out

download (1)

Alone in this world

She starts to drown

She becomes the darkness

In her world

Till she makes the headline

“Teenage girl commits suicide”



(PS; Dont judge. this was written one century ago xD)

Life above 10000 miles

Well atleast in one point of our lifes we have dreamed of being an airhostess. The first thing that comes to our mind while thinking of them would be pretty, elegant, high salaries, can travel etc etc . Some time ago I wanted to be an air hostess, So I checked out this college which had a few eligibility criteria. I was eligible except for these few points:
1.Had to be beautiful and slim(which I was not)
2.Had to have a minimum height of 5’2’’(oops I revealed my height)
3.Had to be fair(such a racist college xD)


It looked like a very glamorous job to be. This is what one website said:

“If you have dreamed of seeing the world but don’t know where to start, a career as a flight attendant might be just the thing that you are looking for. As an air hostess you get to travel to many different destinations, experience luxury hotels, learn about culture and see the world, and you earn a salary in the process. It is a different ball game when you are a flight attendant in the gulf region as opposed to working as one in your home country so here are some tips on applying for the job, what to expect in the interview, the move to the UAE and life as one of the trolley dollies gracing the isles of an Airbus.”

It all seemed like a dream job to me until one point. I discovered the confessions of many air hostess saying how they had been harassed during flights and how many of them retire by the age of 32 as airlines only want beautiful and youthful air hostess. Here is what one website has to say:

“Once a dream job for women, being an air hostess today is far from wonderful. Especially if you fly shorter distances , female flight attendants have a tough job.
“Sometimes it’s like hell”, says an air hostess for British Airlines. “Babies cry out loud because their ears hurt, children kick the back of seats and run up and down the aisles . Some passengers scream at you if you tell them what they are not allowed to do.
Working in the skies has changed. In the early days of aviation , the job of an air stewardess was prestigious and pay was good. Young women saw the world, flew to exotic places where they could spend a few days at expensive hotels. They showed the passengers to their seats and helped them with their baggage . Everything was calmer and there was time for rest or a cup of coffee in the kitchen. Today the job is more stressful . Flight attendants have three or four flights a day, with only little more than half an hour for the turnaround .
In the 1990s the first budget airlines appeared on the scene and made it possible for everyone to board a plane. Before that travelling by plane was only for higher income classes, but today tickets are so cheap that the airplane has become a means of mass transport . Most people who buy cheap tickets think they get the same service as those who pay ten times as much in business class.
People are behaving worse and aggressiveness is increasing . One reason may be that people are not allowed to smoke any more, thus becoming more nervous. Alcohol is also a major factor . Air hostesses complain that more and more holiday travellers start getting drunk before take-off and continue drinking on the plane.
Female flight attendants complain that they are sexually harassed by passengers more often than before. Experts think that airline advertisements are responsible for this because they almost always show stewardesses.
All in all the fascination of the job has gone. Air stewardesses today are nothing more than waitresses pushing a trolley through the aisles at 10,000 meters.”

I have never seen a gloomy looking air hostess ever in my life. They always have that smile in their faces. Sometimes pictures makes them look so perfect that they honestly look fake. And many at times they r looked down by people for their jobes even though they do a lot.
But whatever being an air hostess is not an easy job. Smiling 24/7 at people you don’t even know are not easy.(I cant even smile for more than 5 mts at people I don’t like).They demand our respect. Hats off to all the air hostess and flight attendants for doing their jobs efficiently and ensuring we have a safe journey. I salute you guys and I really mean it.
And for the rest of us lets do our jobs of being polite to them and create a positive environment for them. Lets all respect them for the jobs they do for us.
And here is what one retired air hostess has to say(


“Confessions of an air hostess: Rude passengers, exhaustion and the temptation of wild parties, former stewardess reveals the reality of life at 30,000ft”
• Hilary, of Singapore, wrote a reflection piece a year after she quit her job
• She said she worked as a stewardess for Singapore Airlines for two years
• The flight attendant quit last year and revealed the hardships of the job
• She said flying from Singapore to Sydney is one of the worst flights
• Hilary hated the rude passengers, long hours, the culture and the vices associated with the job

A former stewardess has given an insight into the not-so-glamorous life her high flying job as a flight attendant for Singapore Airlines.
In a recent blog post, the Singaporean woman, who only gave her name as Hilary, claimed she constantly encountered rude passengers while also dealing with the demands of the physically and emotionally draining job.
She wrote that it was ‘so bad to a point where I used to cry before going on flights’.
Some of the worst parts included flights from Singapore to Sydney as well as the culture and the vices associated with the job. Among them being alcohol-fueled parties with co-workers after touch down.8

A year after farwelling her cabin crew days, Hilary wrote about some of the trials she faced while working in what she described as a ‘toxic environment’ for two years.
‘Once I did this flight to Sydney,’ she wrote.
‘It was a A380, it can take 399 passengers in economy class so you can imagine the chaos. Sydney flights are really, really tough.
There were also the temptations of late night parties with her co-worker after surviving a long-haul flight.
‘I think also another major (reason) why I left was because I hated the culture and the vices associated with this job. Flying can be bad especially if you end up falling into the life of vice,’ Hilary wrote.
‘It’s temptation island – pretty girls, handsome boys, four star hotel rooms.
‘Being surrounded in such a work environment you really really have to keep on guard and watch yourself to make sure you don’t give in to temptations like drinking, smoking, etc. Not ALL crew drink and smoke and party but majority do.’ 88
Although she wrote that she had a ‘love-hate relationship with the job’, for the most part she recalls being miserable.
‘I remember dragging my feet to work,’ she said.
‘The kind of fatigue a crew experiences is unlike normal fatigue. It’s hard to explain, it’s like a combination of physical fatigue, mental fatigue, being on your feet for hours and also the result of being stuck in a metal tube with low oxygen levels and breathing in recycled air filled with millions of germs.’
While she acknowledged the ‘good money, the awesome food from different countries, the people I’ve met and the lessons I’ve learned’, Hilary wrote that overall the job wasn’t rewarding enough.
’30 years ago crew earned $SGD5000 [$AUD4744] a month. 30 years later they earn minimum $SGD3500 [$AUD3321] a month,’ she claimed.
‘On good months $SGD5000 but why is it that 30 years ago and now crew are earning the same? Actually less now.
‘And the company keeps decreasing the allowances, super not worth it to fly now.’
While Hilary hopes to expel some of the misconceptions surrounding the job, she has offered some advice for those who are looking to join the industry.
‘If you really want to survive in this job, the only way is to eat humble pie. There’s no “explaining” yourself because in SIA [sorry I apologise] culture it is deemed as defensive and argumentative… So whatever or whoever corrects you, just say sorry & thank you,’ she wrote.
‘The only thing that people say that really hurts crew a lot is when they look down on us. They think being a stewardess is a lousy job, a job where people who are not smart/can’t study do. Just a high class waitress serving and cleaning up after people.
‘I really want to share these because I know a lot of girls are dying to join the airlines just like I did. And they really don’t know what they’re getting themselves into and it’s too late to quit once they get a rude shock.’
Although the negatives seem to outweigh the positives, Hilary admits she had some good times too.
‘It’s not a BAD job. There are always two sides to something,’ she wrote.
‘Sometimes, passengers are really so sweet. They would buy food for the crew… and this simple thing makes us soooo happy because we feel like we are being appreciated and it’s a good way to score points too.’

Everything in life has a positive as well as negative aspects. We need to realize that air hostess are not merely cute Barbie like dolls. They r humans and do their work efficiently.
