We had hired a senior consultant to audit our operations. The need arose because of the inefficiencies we knew were there in the system, but were unable to attend to. It also helped that the consultant taught me Management Finance during my PGDBA. He is one of the best when it comes to studying balance sheets and pinpointing the problem. The real no nonsense type of man, one of the faculties I admired in college.
So we were discussing things threadbare. He was asking uncomfortable questions, and I was being truthful. He finally came to the core of the issue, that there was interpersoanl issues between the promoter and the manager(me). He asked me what my Janma Rasi was. I was stumped but answered,Kettai (Jyeshta).
His face lit up. He said , "All these problems you are facing are due to the change in your stars. Go to Nanganallur Anjaneyar temple, they sell a red string there. Tie it around your writst and visit the temple for five saturdays continuously. By January 15, your problems would vanish. I too am born in the same star, and faced such problems last month. I went to the temple and now my problems are over". He proudly lifted his right hand and showed me the thread tied around his wrist.
So next time you see me, you know where the red thread around my wrist came from.
