Rajni had been noticing that her boss, Jagdish, had seemed preoccupied the past couple of weeks. He was missing important deadlines, and was generally keeping aloof. Not one to meddle in others’ business, Rajni kept out of his way but the sudden change in her boss’s demeanor concerned her.
As Jagdish approached her cubicle that day to enquire on a pending task, she mustered courage and asked him if everything was alright. He laughed off her concern, and then eventually opened up.
Jagdish’s father was an artist, whose rapidly failing eyesight had ultimately led to the diagnosis of a cataract. It pained Jagdish to watch his father struggle with his canvas and easel every day, and he wished he could convince him somehow for the surgery. But his father, keeping into perspective Jagdish’s busy life, didn’t want to burden him with the complexities around his surgery. Helplessness was slowly beginning to set in, and Jagdish didn’t know whom to turn to.
Rajni was fast to react, and let loose a flurry of common knowledge, which, as it turned out, was not so common after all. “Sir, with all due respect, are you aware of MediBuddy?” She saw the hesitation on Jagdish’s face, and didn’t want to put him in a spot. So she went on.

There was pin-drop silence. She looked around. All eyes were on her. She began to say something, but her words drowned in applause! Jagdish looked like he had received the highest form of enlightenment, and clearly, Rajni, in his eyes, was the hero who had saved the day.
An eager colleague pointed his pen and mock-interviewed her, “Anything you’d like to say on your new-found celeb-status?”– “Well”, said Rajni, “MediBuddy is the real star, not I!”
