Raj and Simran loved each other very much and wanted to marry each other. They knew each other since their college days. Raj belonged to a medium class family, while Simran was a pampered child of her parents. Her father was one of the richest people of the town.
Though Simran had said to her parents that she wanted to marry Raj, no one initially supported her decision. However due to Simran's perseverance her parents agreed on the terms that Raj would prove himself to be worthy of Simran and get a decent job.
Raj tried for a year to get a decent job. But always due to some reason or the other he could not succeed. One day while walking down a road he saw one beggar sitting at a corner and asking for alms.
Raj was a generous person. He saw in his pocket but could not get any change. He just had ten rupees. He gave it to the beggar. The beggar thanked Raj and asked that didnot he need it. Raj didnot expect this question. But he answered. He said that the beggar might need it more than himself.
The beggar asked Raj that where he lived and what he did for a living. Raj said that he lived nearby in an apartment named Srinath Towers and was searching for a job.
The next day Raj received an offer letter from the biggest company of the country, Techno India Ltd. He has applied there but they had rejected his application. Then how and why he got this offer letter, Raj could not understand.
However Raj decided to give it a try. He dressed up well and went for the interview . In the office cabin, Raj saw the beggar whom he had met the last day, sitting on the CEO's chair.
The CEO said that his name was Mr. Akash Pathak. It was his hobby to dress up as a beggar and roam in the streets for once in a while. This way he could know the real nature of people.
Raj got appointment in the company with a good, decent package. Now it so happened that Mr. Pathak was a family friend of Simran's family. He recommended Raj to Simran's parents.
