Trophy – #AtoZChallenge

“And the award for ‘Best Manager of the year’ goes to someone who has been an inspirational example always. Well, for last ten years for sure. Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, the award goes to our very own Mr. Roy”, MC announced.

It was the tenth consecutive year when he was nominated for ‘Best Manager of the year’ award. He was known for his work-life balance initiatives. Almost everyone in his department wanted him as Manager.

He received the award and made his way back to his cubicle. He sat down on his chair facing the other nine trophies, shining behind the glass mirror. His tenth trophy was on his table. Next to the trophy, was a courier which he received this morning.

The courier had his divorce papers. His wife filed for a divorce. All these years, when Mr. Roy was busy earning the trophies, he almost forgot that he failed to achieve that work-life balance in his own life.


I am participating in A to Z Challenge for the second consecutive year and my theme this year is Flash Fiction.

    Probably there are many Mr Roy’s around us now a days…finding that elusive work life balance is hard to achieve.
    Engaging tale!
