THE BASIC CONCEPTS OF EMPLOYMENT....


  • If a man has no enough means, he / she many times has to work for some one and receive wages.... In case has enough means he / she will often make some one work for some one, pay wages and take profit.... The Employee and Employer concepts are defined thus....
  • The conflict between the Employer and the Employee at any point of time is dependent on the legality of the issue involved according to the law of land and the Customer's requirements as well.... 
  • Dignity of work is a concept in Nature which changes with time.... The world has defined the dignity of work many times always with deficiencies attached to it and never could define it to perfection.... So no Rule implemented can define it Cent percent.... Philosophies of Capitalist, Socialist or Mixed Economies in vogue often define the dignity of work.... And survival aspects are the basic dictating forces behind all such Rules and Regulations.... 
  • Continuous Improvement is the philosophy of surviving in a rather harsh Competitive Environment.... No short cuts help here... 
  • Most of the jobs in the world are in Buyers’ Market i.e., the Buyer dictates and the Seller confirms.... Only a few jobs of very high Specialized Skills are in the Sellers’ Market i.e., the Seller dictates and the Buyer listens.... 
  • Active work life lies between ages approx 20-60 yrs.... Below 20 is the period of developing Basic Skills.... Above 60 is the period of providing Advices and Consultations.... Between 20 to 60 yrs, the work occupies a major portion of life....
  • In a Work Environment, continuity of job is more important than Salary, Increments and Promotions etc.... 
  • Jobs are always given thru’ References.... At any time, during the Employment period, my Reference forever is the current Employer + all previous Employer/s.... 
  • Career Growth is a must in all spheres of work.... Starting I am at Working Level.... Subsequent to this, I will be doing A Supervisory Role.... Next, I hold The Managerial Role.... The final Role may be rising to a Senior Executive Level or above that.... A halt to Career Growth for a certain time is nothing but a permanent loss of job.... 
  • Every Business has certain limit of operating finances.... That depends on the demand in Market for the Product, the paying capacity of Customers, the number of Customers that consume the Product etc.... Accordingly the Salary Structure and Career Plans are implemented for the Particular Set Up.... If growth of Career beyond these limits is expected, the only option is to leave the existing Set Up and move on to next Business Level....

The 'Only Way' of regaining 'Balance' in Nature....


God originally created man on the Earth and said, “You will live your life in the Lap of Mother Nature through hard work and simple living alone!”

And man sincerely took the Orders and followed the same for a while…. But soon, a wild thought entered his mind.… And, it sure happens to one when one gets fed up with his routine....

The thought said, “It is not that much wrong if you work in your life in the direction of gaining a little 'More' for yourself!” stressing the word 'More'....

Man no doubt, yielded to the thought as it prompted him repeatedly without getting off from his mind ever proving the power of even a single wrong thought with us.... Thus in no time, the 'Gaining for self' had gained momentum and man started making use of his surroundings extensively for that purpose.... And in the process, he quickly forgot that such an activity always alters the very 'Face' of his 'Environment' and it too started happening without an exception and the inevitable 'Suffering' followed….

At this point of time, God appeared to him and said, “You are unsafe now…. Better, you control this down fall in you…. Find out a way of limiting this at any cost!”

Man, through his own pride and prejudice tried his best to find out that which would control the downfall and get back his safety.... He started inventing his own theories of improving in that direction and equally started working towards the implementation of various 'Schemes' in that line….

But soon he noticed that if there were improvements in one direction / field, there were seen equal downfalls / damages in other directions / fields....That is a fact in the world as the world always appears only of that color of the glass through which it is seen with the Truth forever being different.... And the only way here is just to throw away those very 'Glasses' that are with me all the time....

God again appeared to him and reminded, “Unless you start doing part of your works exclusively for the betterment of that man who is in no way related to your ideologies, theories,views, dogmas, concepts and your own Groups except that he is just a Human Being along with you in your life, the situation would never improve.... Better you start this activity at the earliest....”

And further to this, many, many  Revelations and Confusions followed but whatever said and done, where the Caution from Lord was seen in the Right Perspective, the 'Peace' was next to the man and where the 'self' was stressed more, 'It' vanished the very next moment through the same 'Window' he built to communicate with the world!

A 'Deviation' here is a 'Permanent Pain!'


A man all of a sudden got into a problem, not a lesser problem…. And the solution seemed to be complex and not straight forward at all.... He was confused on the immediate course of action with every one around remaining silent for a while…. Suddenly, he firmed up…. “I have one life with me and I am important here…. I do not want to sacrifice my enjoyment whatever may be the problem in front; that's all!”  To his surprise, a few around him too asserted the same saying, “Go ahead with your Plan.... How can you simply 'lose' in your life?  We are with you!”  With such a back up, soon he was into a new life of his own enjoyments….

As the days passed, the man slowly noticed that even though the life he had chosen was great initially, when looked more carefully into distance, it was found to be laced with many unknown issues and complications…. And when he tried to discuss the same with the few who initially okayed his living, they brushed off that in no time saying, “Don’t worry…. We too have done such things earlier…. It is nothing here…. Continue with full vigor and we will be always at your back!”  He instantly felt better and thus continued further....

But soon, the man clearly understood that the very same people who asserted his doings all the while, were shaky by themselves and out of their own instability they were proposing a similar life for him…. And by that time, he could no more go back on his earlier actions and was forced to continue further….

As time passed on, there were more and more tensions in him with more intricacies, problems and other issues surfacing and multiplying too fast…. Soon, even a small change from that 'self chosen life' seemed difficult, looking back was not all allowed and the future appeared totally bleak…. Ultimately, he was left high and dry in his life with the mental Peace totally at stake.... Strangely, the so called his Advisors at his back alone held him tight in that path so that he too was with them….

The man wept within himself…."What a great mistake had I done in my life?  Had I stuck to the Right Path when the first problem struck me, the confusion whatever I was foreseeing would have soon ended with more and more light being thrown in the right direction and more and more strength coming up in me out of fearlessness…. By choosing the wrong path, ultimately I lost a good life full of Happiness, Contentment and the Right Expression!"

Human achievement is 'Great' but is always 'Limited!'


“Now days, the communication is on finger tips.... Our dear loved Ones may be in any corner of the world, we can daily see them and talk to them very easily.... We can follow up with them in no time, know their requirements, give guide lines for any action to be done, if required advise in times of exigencies and keep all information update.... It is as good as they are living with us! How much improvement had taken placein respect of communications? Never did we have such facilities in the olden days....

I don’t know how our forefathers felt when their dear ones were away in own country and for days together they could not have proper communication with them except through letters which used to take time to reach and through telegram/telephone facilities for which they had to walk long distances, wait in queues and pay heavily.... God only knows how much they were inconvenienced with such living and I wonder how they used to attend to their exigencies in their lives?” thus was speaking a man of early thirties in a Group of similar age who were listening to him all the while except for a very elderly Well-wisher who was a little away but all the time listening to what the man was speaking....

The Well-wisher slowly walked up to the man, intervened and said, “My dear! Yes, What all you said is right, we had only those limited facilities with us what you have described and we had to live with the same.... But you may not know one thing here.... At the back of such severe limitations, we had our own Mental Strengths….We depended one hundred percent on the Almighty for the ultimate well being and safety of our Dear Ones and incessantly used to Pray unto Him for their welfare! That was the best job we could do in times of separation with our Dear Ones.... With such a deep Faith in our hearts, our Peace was very much with us even though the problems were more or less the same all the time now or then…. That way we were truly happy and contented in our times…."

While departing, the elderly Well-wisher smiled and said, “Whatever be the development with us, let us appreciate with all sincerity the effort of mankind behind all that, make use of it for our own well being and thus grow but never get off from the fact that ‘It is His Will that prevails ultimately!’ Thus all our achievements refined to whatever level be, are always limited for real usefulness in our lives at some point of time wherein a Firm Faith established in the Lord alone truly comes to rescue and saves us from such turmoils of life!"

A 'Soothing' Customer Care?


A funny part of an Office Life....

In the Boss’ Chambers….

“Yes! My Dear, Manager! You know.... It seems, your that boy Sampath had called our Chief Customer Mr Swaroop on phone last evening.... He should have walked down to his Office to clarify his doubt…. And you should have instructed your man not to do that…. In this Company, our GM and MD alone can call him on phone…. Right now, go the Customer’s Office along with your Supervisor and convey our apologies to the Chief for the same…. Else, our business will sure face many hurdles in the coming days….”

“OK! Sir! Right now, I’ll do that!”

At the Customer’s Office….

“Sir! we apologize on behalf of one of my Assistants for directly talking to you on Phone…. We are sorry about that!”

“Look! My dear! Your man does this and you say sorry even he being not in my presence….I won’t accept…. Do one thing…. This moment call your that Sampath and warn him not to repeat the mistake…. Please do that first!”

“Ok! Sir! we’ll do that….” saying thus, the Manager turned to his Supervisor and said, "Ring up to your boy now and tell him..........."

In the next few minutes, the Supervisor heard talking to his Assistant in a low tone from a corner of the room, “Hi! Swaroop…. What are you thinking about yourself I say?  Why did you call our Customer Chief on his phone? Mr Swaroop! Be careful and listen to me…...... And promise me that you don’t repeat this any more…. You are a small man in our Department to talk to a big man like that on phone….........”

As the advising thus continued, the Manager sheepishly was briefing the Chief in a softer tone.... "Sir! My Supervisor had told his boy what all required.... That boy will never repeat this mistake anymore.... His full name is Sampath Swaroop…. They all call him by his second name many times.... OK! Sir! I take leave now.... Once again sorry for all the trouble we gave to you.... Bye! Sir!"

I should ever avoid yielding to the 'Convenience!'


“I have a problem” the man said.... “Whenever, I want to act in the Right Way, I am afraid of the resistance and confrontation around.... That puts me off taking the Right Path.... Most of the times, it is no action but rarely a wrong action.... I feel a lot for the same.... But don’t you agree that it is better to avoid confrontation than stick to the ‘Right’ one hundred percent? Lesser evil is always better, is it not?”

“You may be correct only in certain situations that too with certain personalities and at places where truly a diplomatic attitude is required....” commented the wise man.... “But not in all our smaller issues.... I should not be afraid of the day to day issues and keep off from my Right Actions.... It's better call 'a Spade a Spade' in all such cases and make known to people around my intentions of sticking to the Right Actions as they are rather than speak less of the same.... 


It is only when the confrontation was expected to cause a major irreparable damage, certain Great Personalities had followed temporarily a yielding path for a moment.... The Great man had exited a Public Office from the back door when an enraged mob threatened the Officer-in-charge that they would burn the Office if He was not produced in front of them.... This was done deliberately to enable the Officer to show to the crowd that He was not inside and thus prevent the damage.... I am never great like those Personalities, am much, much far down in respect of the psychological strengths and hence may not be able to withstand many threats thrown at me.... Yes!  That is a fact with me and I should ever live at that level alone.... So, many threats aimed at me in my life have to be managed diplomatically and there is no go here....

But still, major part of our day to day issues with people around us who are law bound are no problem in general and in such cases too if I am still deviating from the Right Path, it is no excuse to say that I saved the situation.... Instead it is better, I agree that I yielded here to the convenience.... The Right Actions always need a lot of patience from my side to bear the general brunt from the surroundings and steadfastness in me should be ever on forefront in all such instances!”

What appeals to me is always 'Questionable!'


A young man was confused.... The Great Sayings and Great Men a few times spoke of the two opposites as 'Right'…. such as that is often said, 

‘Save enough finances for future as you earn and it is your Primary Duty in this world….’ and the opposite, ‘You should spend reasonable monies on good living and on Charity as this is also a Duty with you!’ too without an exception....  

In the same way, the often spoken Words, 

‘Eat well and thus maintain a good health….’ with the opposite, ‘Eat frugal and fast yourself to purify….’ were very much on the Anvil....

And he heard the repeated Saying; ‘Work hard as it is a Sacred Duty with you....’ but the Advice ‘Do Meditation as much as possible and be at Peace….’ was also next to it.... 

Finally, the young man found that the Ultimate Saying 'Speak Truth forever' too was different with a Great Saint who Himself owned a robbery on Him to protect a robber out of Great Compassion for the man....

His doubt was where to draw the limits for these pairs of opposites as doing one activity definitely confronted with the other…. Is it what appeals to one to be done or is there a yardstick of measure? To his knowledge, he never read about a limit on these doings….

Thus, with this lingering doubt in his mind, he approached the Head of a Monastery and sincerely sought the clarification on his doubt....  The Head smiled and said, “What appeals to you is not That!”

The man was further confused.... The Head continued, “What appeals to you is always out of a self interested thought as that basically protects an individual.... Mother Nature has instilled this protection in all living beings for basic survival.... The animal instinct may Okay it but Human considerations should necessarily rise above this level as the Purpose of Human Birth is entirely different.... Having understood this well, the appealing in you should constantly be checked / questioned and should clearly be distinguished from the need in front.... It is very much possible to do this if you truly firm up in your mind.... And the Clarity that comes thru' in you will itself guide you further and you will surely be knowing at every instant, what to do and what not to do without a single doubt!”

A Service to Humanity....


A young man was very ambitious and was highly principled.... In fact, he was the follower of a Religious Institution and an ordained lover of the Speeches of the Head of the Institution....

Once he happened to attend a Speech made by the Head of the Institution.... He heard the Master say, “A sincere Service done to humanity becomes one of the greatest Assets of our lives!” and was instantly inspired by that.... There, he believed his Master to the core....

He came home and thought thus…."It is always the life of my family and my problems with me and here, I am not really doing something worth what our Great Men all the time advised us to do.... Let me here do something really worth too simultaneously and it is very much possible if we firm up.... I decided, I will devote a minimum of at least an hour daily towards certain Social Service Activities and in that way I will not be equally stopping any other works of mine too….”

Thus he thought, soon located a famous Organization involved in such Social Service Activities and straight away got into that…. After his day's work, he used to go there regularly, give his Services for an hour and return home…. No problem…. "A worthy Service and Gods are truly pleased here!" thus he thought....

Over a period of time, his home jobs which needed attention piled up and the young man thought he could resolve them slowly and sometimes he found that they got resolved by themselves….Best of two was thus possible.... He was very happy....

Life went on thus for sometime but slowly the young man noticed that of late, his spouse was not keeping her health .... He tried to help her out the best but still the problem persisted.... He was thus unhappy.... God was not kind to him....

At length, he took an interview with the Master, explained Him what all had happened and sought His sincere advice.... The Master patiently listened to him, at the end smiled and said, “My dear, I said about the Service to Humanity; no doubt.... But I ask you here.... Have you served the members of your family in the right way first who really needed the best from you? They are the first line Humanity with you all the time.... Instead, you stopped the works which you were supposed to do towards them with your own energies and dedication and involved in a different Social Service....  Thus, your own works got piled up at home and your spouse alone had to do all that.... With her child care, she was forced to work additional, soon got exhausted and thus became sick.... Here, have you really served the Humanity in your great attempt?”

The young man at once understood that one should first serve one's family members in the best way required for their growth and welfare; beyond that alone some of his / her energies whatever available should go to the people around but never the other way!

The never fading 'Frame of Reference'....


A business man’s son finished his Management Degree after graduation and was all set to venture into business field....  As a young Entrepreneur with no strings attached for investment, he opened his own Company to produce a particular Product, appointed a few working staff and simultaneously established a good Marketing Network to sell the Product....

He further thought thus….

“I am going to produce this Product which is in line with my basic skills and which has a good demand in the market and I have to sell this Product.... Here there are people down the line who give out their skills and bring out the Product and another group of people who pay at various levels for the Product to move to the Final User....

It is very important that the chain of people on one side are well motivated and the chain of people the other side are truly benefited....

I decided to adapt a Code of Conduct here....

I would allot 25% of my profit earned for the betterment of all the people involved in the chain on both sides as well as for outsiders as follows:

5% on people, who would be involved in value addition to the Product,
5% on people, who would be beneficiaries of the Product and 

10% on Charity purely to the Outsiders.... 

The remaining 5%, I keep aside to cover the cost of all the returns in respect of use and damage by the Customer....

Further, I will work more than anyone in my Company and allocate 25% of this time exclusively to resolve problems of the individuals working with me....

And finally, I will advertise the Product for the information purpose alone and will never influence the Customer beyond that....

This way done my profits may not be high, and sometimes may be minimum but the Customer Chain thus created never gets off from me and the Business exists for a longer time....

If still fate does not favor running of my Venture successfully, it would be taken without a single murmur from my side simultaneously ensuring that it was never out of laziness, corruption and despondency of any individual in the System!”


The 'Ideal Discipline', the young man thought of.... May not be practicable so easily.... But read between the lines, the Truth forever is seen existing here alone.... I, as a Business Personality better keep these 'Golden Points' in mind while doing my activities and forever be making attempt on how close I can discipline myself to these 'Points'....

Worth 'Framing' the same in my mind as 'True Reference' to my Activities....

Mannerisms sure have a limit!


A young man was constantly thinking of a polite behavior from him beyond whenever he was in a group of people i.e., A politeness beyond the ease of an individual.... Thus he used to put up an almost artificial behavior in groups of people when interacting and that in turn was causing a great stress in him.... He could no longer hold it in himself, at the earliest opportunity discussed the issue with a close elderly Well-wisher and sincerely sought a remedy for the same….

The Well-wisher looked at him, smiled and said, “Look! My dear, politeness, no doubt is a good quality with an individual and it makes many issues resolved instantly.... But what you have told me indicates that you have become a slave to it and thus lost your freedom in that process…. It is a disease with a few individuals and any one suffering from this problem, should soon control their behaviors….

Just remember that over pleasing some one is not your job as no one really gets pleased beyond whatever you may show or give to them.... That is very much natural for any one….In fact, by doing this, you are irritating a genuine individual as he / she may not be in a position to express that…. And, a few of them may sure turn off from you unable bear the nuisance....  In such a scenario, sometimes even the lesser is better, because that definitely soon brings back the required balance in behaviors of both the parties....
” 

While departing the elderly quipped, “Let the attention from us even for a VVIP Guest be simmering a little when we deal with them.... The reason is…. At that very moment, even a VVIP Guest can fill up that small 'Missing Gap' through his / her own effort and social adjustment and that change is very much feasible for every one on the Earth.... And that quickly brings the required balance in the situation and soon the dust settles very nicely.... This is truly a Heroic Act rather than doing extra and thus indirectly surrender to another in the process which is many times below the dignity of any one around us.... But you have to remember forever here that the 'Missing Attention' should be as little as possible and should never go beyond that limit at any time!"

Self Help....


Self help is the Golden Path one has to embrace in life….

Whatever is said or done, one should help himself / herself physically all the time in his / her life according to his / her capacity!

A great Saint was offered many times help by the disciples when He was old and was afflicted with an incurable disease.... He politely used to refuse the offer saying, “As long as my hand can move, let it only help me.... You can help me when this hand can no more do the job!”
....Meaning almost never many times! 

The Message here invariably is an invaluable one for me….

By bargain, we can always buy the 'Physical Help' in the world.... And the payments involved are forever controlled by the Economics and the Prevailing Rules and Regulations.... In such a scenario, it is better the following issues are thoroughly checked before buying such 'Help'….

  1. Am I asking help where if my body can exert reasonably, the work can be completed? 
  2. In my process of buying the physical help, is there human exploitation involved? 
  3. If the individual who helps me grows in his/her profession to my level or above, is it a happy situation for me? 
  4. Am I doing my core business during these times when I buy the physical help? 
  5. Am I truly engaged simultaneously in discharging my bounden duties during the period the help is sought? 
If I only can get reasonable negative answers for the first two questions and positive answers for the last three, the 'Physical Help' can be taken.... Else many times, it is a 'Noble Gesture' on my behalf if I can stop here and look at myself as the true 'Tool of that Help!' 

A few Funny Incidents....


###  The Transportation Agency said, “We positively deliver your items…. If not we return the money worth of the items shipped!” followed by certain exceptions such as…..
  • Earthquakes, Storms, Whirl winds and all such Natural Disasters…..,
  • Riots, Strikes, Protests and all such man made disturbances….,
  • Accidents, Breakdowns, Transport hold ups and all such routine issues….,
  • Leaving the above, all other damages beyond human control….,
  • Political interferences, Geographical problems and the economic turmoils….,
  • All unlawful involvements and disturbances…. and
  • All such instances when the items become untraceable….
The Customer smiled and remarked, “If none of these happen, why at all a guarantee is required in the delivery of the items?”

###  In a far off distant land, a Prominent Food Store along with normal food items used to sell certain Natural Remedies too for the usual day to day ailments.... A particular Sales Boy at the Counter used to entertain the Customers to the Store through high polite behavior by repeatedly using the words while billing…. Hi!  How are you today?  Did you find everything?………. Here you go…. Enjoy!”

Unfortunately by force of habit he repeated the same words, when a Remedial Item was purchased by a Customer suffering from an ailment with him!

###  At the ‘XXXX’ Coffee Shop, I was served the very best Coffee with a Super Cup!”

“Oh! So Great! Why was the Big man with you at the ‘XXXX’ Coffee Shop?”

###  The Classic Joke from our Grandma’s Tales….

In the very olden days, a few old ladies used to run the ‘Wayside Inns’ for en-route Travelers to dine and rest for a night in the middle of their journey….

In one such Inn, once a Traveller was served good food and after the food the traditional betel nut Pawn was offered to him…. When he had bitten the betel nut, the old lady exclaimed, “Oh! My God! At last you did it!”

To a question from the Traveller she said with a beaming face, “Yes! This particular nut could not be cracked by many Travelers who visited my Inn till date and tried it…. I safely preserved it all these days, was waiting to see who can really crack it and today, I can’t believe it…. You have done it at last!”

The Grace of Almighty....


The Great Saint once had said thus….

A brother and sister were playing the ‘Hide and Seek’ game in a Park…. Suddenly the brother had put on a ‘Mask’ and appeared in front of the sister…. The sister got terrified and instantly was paralyzed…. Seeing the Play too much for her, the brother immediately removed his Mask and appeared as usual in front of her with a cheerful smile…. That very moment, the girl was the happiest on earth to see the familiar face of her brother and thus remained totally calm….

The Almighty too has such a Love towards me…. He can never see me suffer even a second and is ever ready to Reveal Himself in front of me which Form is the Original that makes me Eternally Peaceful and Contented….

As long as I am interested in the Play here with its own thrills of worldly interest, the Lord too just Plays along with me according to my requirement…. In between, He gives me a chance to experience the extreme Serenity and Peace in life by posing to me a tough situation…. But as I continue to Play the Game here with the associated problems like all the Lovable Brother, the Almighty Allows me to do that too…. Again in between out of despair, the Moment I Surrender to Him with a feeling of helplessness and restlessness, He is at once by my side to take care of me!


What other True Support and Safeguard is required for me in my life in a helpless situation?

But a small reminder here….

The Master once again confirmed to a disciple thus for a question when he could see God…. He took him to the Sea, dipped him fully in waters for a few seconds, took him out and asked how he felt like for those few moments…. The disciple replied saying that there was no new thought in him other than yearning for a few breaths of air when he was down…. The Master said, “Unless you struggle thus for the Almighty, He will not appear in front of you!” 


So it is equally, a great struggle too to have His Ultimate Grace!  A Sincere Prayer Unto Him with a Total Surrender attitude does truly wonders in this context!

Pitfalls of 'Extra Pleasing'....


One of our old Sayings retold with extra explanations....

A man working for a Master used to get up in the early morning, prepare himself fully to report for duty along with a beautiful Rose specially picked up for the Master, present him the same and start his Work.... And that he made his daily routine in the mornings ....

Slowly over a period of time, he found that his Master was not that much happy with the flower as he used to be in the beginning.... Even though the man started selecting the best flower to give him, the Master stopped paying attention to all that and started pointing out some of his earlier day mistakes at Work....

Soon, the man started spending more attention in selecting the flower, wrap it nicely and give to the Master.... And he used to do all his work too with utmost attention.... For a few days the Master was OK but soon again he started pointing out and scolding him often for certain fictitious lapses....

The man thus was sad....

On one of those days, he happened to meet a friend of him after the Work.... The friend had seen his sad face and enquired him about that.... The man kept quiet for a while but beyond that could not control his feelings.... He thus told him the whole happenings at his Work daily....

The friend heard everything patiently.... He looked at him for some time, smiled and asked him, “What basic tasks are you supposed to do daily at your Master's Premises?” The man explained in brief all the tasks that he had to do daily....

The friend asked, “Is your Master’s day really smooth with the completion of all these tasks?” 


“Yes.... To my knowledge, he has no problem” the man replied....

The friend asserted, “I feel you are doing your job well.... Tell me one thing.... Is it one of your duties to give a flower too to your Master daily when you report for Work?”

The man looked bewildered with the question....

“Yes! My dear! Here, you started doing something extra beyond your duty thinking that you can please your Master more in that way.... Seeing this quite for some time, he had taken you for granted and started showing his anger easily on you.... He assumed that you will not give back easily.... Thus you wanted to please him extra and that worked initially but is not working anymore and in fact is working against you now....  Of course, there is no point in giving back to the Master as you yourself wanted the job and that way you should be careful here not to hurt him.... Had you understood the correct 'Master Servant Relation' in the beginning itself and acted accordingly, this problem would not have come up to you at all in your life!”
