“At the company’s meeting”


Mr. Henry smith was charged with energy.  It seemed very unusual day.  Was it due to overnight sound sleep or bright sun shine across the sky!  He expected a tough day ahead, as he had a presentation to make for a foreign collaborator’s delegation at the office.  He had been meticulously working for several weeks, on the JV project, worth millions which could bring great prosperity for him, the CEO, and to the corporation he had been working.


Entering office premises, he was all smiles greeting one and all.  He was nodding his head acknowledging every other employee colleague pass by.  In addition to his professional job, as usual, he was also proving himself a PR man.


His secretary Ms Eli looked tense, her eyes expressing it all.  Seeing him she was pleased, quickly greeted him “Good morning Mr. Henry, the delegates are already here and await you at the conference hall”.  Without any further delay he went ahead to the hall across the corridor.


Greeting every one, after introductory remarks about the background and the purpose of day's meeting, he started outlining the project step by step, while every one had their attention focused on his smart video presentation.    


His presentation was very sharp and effective; the counter part delegates were listening to every word he spoke and nodding their head with approval. 


After lunch break, for an hour or so, the meeting continued.  Around 7 p.m. it was question hour and open house discussion session.  Queries raised and explanations were being offered. At that very moment, Ms Eli, again seemed very tense, walked briskly up to dais, whispered softly in to the ears of Mr. Henry.


His face became pale and one could see Mr. Henry in a shocked condition.  He quickly spoke some thing to be excused from the meeting; he rushed towards his car parked near the office entrance.  His mind was racing filled with thoughts.  Hope and pray everything wouild be alright and his family safe.
