The meeting went well and Apple and
“One day I’ll become CEO of this company”, Apple exclaimed ambitiously. Then he asked curiously, “How much does the CEO of this company earn?”
“More than 4 crores (40 million) rupees per annum plus stock options plus bungalow plus Mercedes and many other perks”,
“I won’t be happy with only Mercedes. Also I won’t travel in public airplanes. I’ll buy a private jet at company’s expense”, Apple said visualizing himself in the private jet.
“Yeah, we’ll earn big bucks”,
It was time to reach home and both had to catch a local train, at CST station, around three kilometers from Nariman Point.
“We’ll go by cab, but I don’t have money now. Please pay for cab, I’ll pay you later”, Orange requested.
Apple checked his wallet, it was empty.
“We’ll walk to the station. We won’t get time to walk when we’ll have private jet and Mercedes”, Apple started walking.
Both wished for some money, few lakhs if not crores from their future.
