It was Saturday.  I was on the bus stop waiting for a bus to board, to attend an interview in a software company. I was very nervous and curious as no bus was coming. I was roaming here and there. Many thoughts were coming in my mind.

“Will I reach on time? No bus is coming. I also don’t know the exact location. I would get late.”

 Then I heard a sweet voice. There was a beautiful girl behind me. She had worn a Blue jeans, and a t-shirt and a jacket. She also had a bag.  She had long hair which was not tied.

The girl: Has the bus to Kalyaninagar gone?

Me: No, the bus has still not arrived. I am also waiting for that bus.

 Me: Are you also going to Cybage to attend the interview?

Cybage is a multinational software company in Pune, which is located in Vadgaonsheri. This company recruits software professional.

The girl: No, I work there.

I was mute for some time. A thought came to my mind that half of my problem is solved. May be this could be my lucky day because behind every successful man there is a woman. Continuous thoughts were coming to my mind.

The girl: I would tell you how you would go to the interview location.

Suddenly a bus arrived. She told me that this bus would also go to that location. Both of us got on the bus. The bus started moving. She sat 2nd from the front and I sat 2nd last. She waved her hand and called me to sit next to her. I sat next to her. After some time the bus conductor came. She took out the fare from her bag which was Rs. Six and gave it to the conductor. She told me that I should also s give Rs. 6 and take the ticket. The conductor gave both of us our tickets and went away. It was morning time. She felt very hot. She tried opening the window but it didn’t open. I should have opened to impress her but I didn’t.

The girl: What is your name?

Me: My name is Navin.

I didn’t had the courage to ask her name. I felt shy. It takes time for me to get used to people.

Me: What do you do in this company?

The girl: I am software developer.

Me: On which technology do you work on?

The girl : I work on Java Technology.

 From a long time Java is a very promising language. If you are a Java developer, you have a great demand in the market.

Me:That’s great.

The girl:For which post you are going for the interview?

Me: Software tester.

The girl: Whose reference are you giving?

It was a referral interview. You had to write the detail of employee you know in this company. The employee could be in nay department.

Me : Her name is Swati. She is QA Engineer. I don’t know here personally. I am connected with her on ‘LinkedIn’.

LinkedIn is a social networking site where you would find a lot of persons working round the globe in different domains.

I had taken a book so that I could read something on the way. I had written referral details in it. I showed her.  In that I had kept two resumes. Then I took out a resume and showed it to her. She started going through it. She finished going through it.

The girl:It is a good resume but it does not contain the current projects or the projects you are working on.

Then I took out the second resume and gave it to her. She gave it a look. She finished going through it and started talking.

The girl:You should give this resume as it contains the projects. There are many questions made from the projects. Many questions would be asked from the projects.

I agreed with her. I changed my plans and decided to give the second resume.

Me:Could you please give me your e-mail id so that I could e-mail you.

I gave her my pen. She wrote her e-mail id in my book without hesitation. I read her e-mail id. Her name was Nidhi Patel. I didn’t asked where she belonged to. Her last name was Patel so I guessed that she could be from Gujrat, India. Then there was silence for a moment. After sometime the bus reached kalyaninagar.

Nidhi :  Cybage is also in kalyaninagar. When I first came to attend the interview, I misunderstood the place and came here but as I was early I reached the correct location at the right time.

Nidhi :  Please don’t  worry. I would show you the way.

She was very polite. I was happy. This time God has sent an angel in the form of a girl. God’s ways are really mysterious. After some time the bus reached the destination. I should have shown her some respect. She got up but I didn’t move from my seat as if I had frozen. Both of us got off the bus. We crossed the road.

Nidhi : We should go from the left. Both of us started walking.

Nidhi : You could go to the company by the auto also. You know when the auto wallah finds that the customer is new they overcharge the customer. As we have the time as you are early we can take a walk. It is not far away.

We started moving forward. I was silent. She didn’t like that we were not taking.

Me : How do you know that you have to develop this software?

Nidhi : We get the requirement and sometimes we have to do a research on that thing. Once I did a one month research on the project.

Nidhi : I also want to migrate to software testing field. It is a very good field.

Most of the taking was done by her. I was just listening.

Me : I don’t know automation testing.

Nidhi : Be confident and tell them once you are in this company you would also learn automation testing.

Me: I am confident because I have thought that I had got the job and I have started working there.

Nidhi : Don’t be overconfident.

Me : I am not overconfident.

Nidhi : If you need a reference please note my employee id.

 She took out her pen and tried giving it to me. I took out my pen.  It was my habit to always take the pen with me. She told me her employee id. I wrote here employee id in my book and that was the second last sentence spoken by here.

Me : Could you please give me your visiting card?

She hesitated in giving her visiting card. I don’t know why. May be she does not had it at that moment. I didn’t force her to give it to me. Now she has to take a turn.

Nidhi : Now look. As you see ‘Adlabs’ theatre is here. You think of this as the milestone. Now you have to take a left turn and go straight until you see the board of the company.

We had a handshake and she went away. As she was going I looked at her until she disappeared. That was one of the memorable moments of my life. Whenever I see her employee id and e-mail id in my book I remember that great time I spent with her. The time spent with her was a little but I was the one of the best moments of my life. God bless her.
