I used to be a top shot executive earning more than 50 lacs per annum. Lived a lavish life, travelling to exotic locations, living in suites of 5 star hotels, eating and drinking to no limits.Life was full of joy and happiness, corporate sponsored with no strings attached. I used to show off my achievements which i reached in a short span of a decade with utter hard work and dedication. Then on January 2020, i was all of a sudden laid off from my company without notice without severance. All my stock options were forfeited and i was let gone in half a day. Like many corporate executives i had a very thin savings and most of my salary was EMI dependent on the various luxuries i had purchased in the last few years.Fully confident that i will get another chance in some other organizations, i felt nervous but not shattered. I cooled off and started applying for various job opportunities across job portals. The D Day came with Corona getting wild and the death nail came with the infamous lockdown. Many organizations stopped hiring and people were being laid off right, left and center.Being a management graduate, i wanted to create an opportunity in crisis and started my own venture. I dealt with various COVID related products. Came with one product after another, but somehow couldnot capture market as i would have expected. Every product, investment and capital started making losses eating big into my savings, then my mutual funds and provident fund.Everyday started becoming difficult. The respect i had in my circle started diminishing. First my office colleagues, then friends and slowly then my family. Today its almost 8 months i am jobless, eating from my savings. My ventures have started failing and everything seems topsy turvy. There is no respect, no money in savings and lastly people who used to have an awe for me started ignoring me.Life teaches you a lot and this is just the beginning of my failure. I dont know how long will it be before i get a chance to get back to the corporate world. Will i ever be able to reach the pinnacles of success again? Time will tell what life has in store for me. But the big question is have i quit? The answer is a big no and a small yes. No, because i know something is there in the universe which will be made available for me. I believe i have given opportunity to so many people. I have helped many people and that my Karma should balance the output.But there is a small Yes. Yes i feel God is over burdened with requests coming from all corners and may be there are people who deserve a chance better than me. Yes, i feel somewhere that nothing will become alright again and all that i have earned in last 12 years has gone waste. All my savings vanished and now its just end of times.Future is unknown, trust in the almighty and self believe is all i have.
