Sarika was well known employee among the staff. While Sheetal remained to be a reserved employee but took up key positions in Finance department. Sarika was friendly to help employees while Sarika was outgoing. Sheetal would also wonder how Sarika can be so famous and well known and loved by all whereas not many knew Sheetal apart from the people from her own department. Sheetal now took an extreme step of putting down her papers. Their manager Mr. Shah was worried when he heard the news. He first contacted Sarika as they were best friends and batchmates. Sarika didn’t even know what drove Sheetal to such harsh steps. Mr. Shah took the matter in his hands and confronted Sheetal in an informal talk in the canteen. Sheetal opened up and discussed how she felt left out and humiliated as Sarika was the popular one even though they both had equal qualification, experience and also had pursued course from the same institute. Even the canteen waiters acknowledged Sarika’s presence offering a quick service when she was with Sheetal. But when Sheetal came alone to canteen no one paid attention to her nor was she given any respect or importance. This hurt Sheetal and led her to resign.
