Aravind Murali, a resident of Ashok Nagar, was faced with a unique situation last evening, when he was uncertain whether his prospective employer was male or female.
It all began when an HR consultant asked him to visit the offices of a city BPO and meet someone called Prasanna for an interview. Accepting the offer, Murali’s lightning quick mind speedily latched on to the problem – causing him several hours of mental stress.
“Jeepers. I wonder if Prasanna will be a hot babe (Hooray). Or an IIT guy who plays guitar (Damn). Or an intimidating, sarcastic woman ( Shudder ).”, he thought to himself, toying with a mere three of the millions of possibilities.
“I don’t see why people can’t have names which clearly indicate their gender – like Bruce Banner, Faye Dunaway or M.S.Swaminathan. This is irritating” complained Murali.
Murali was last seen being consoled by Wildlife Photographer S.U.Saravanakumar, who has apparently had the same problem with people named ‘Sara’.
