50.indian butler 1

Getting a good job in India had become near to
impossible because of its ever increasing population,
that was now not very far away from that of the most
populous country in ther world, and its neighbor,
China, and especially for a hotel management graduate.
This career choice was still being looked down upon in
many of the small cities and towns in India, and where
it was considered "not bad", there the hotels always
looked for experienced candidates. The common people
considered that on completion of a hotel management
course, the maximum job that you could get was that of
a waiter, which was considered a very degradable job
because one had to serve. The job of a butler was far
more impossible, as it was felt that the butler was a
servant and according to the customs, being a domestic
servant was extremely embarrassing. Although, in the
metropolitan cities, the outlook had changed, and
people had started choosing hospitality management as
a career, but in the rural regions and small towns,
such jobs were far from being good occupations.
Girish was one such Indian, who had an
absolutely different approach to life. He had studied,
from the pre-school years in an all-boys school and
was inclined to a hospitality-based career. His
father, who was a renowned chef at the Hyatt Regency
Hotel, New Delhi, (one of India's best luxury hotels)
also encouraged him to do so. He wanted that his only
son should be happy in whatever he did.
Girish was a 24 -- year old tall, smart Indian
boy from a well -- to -- do family. He had been an
excellent cook when he was young and cooking was also
his hobby, but somehow, he did not want to be a chef,
maybe because his father himself was a renowned chef.
He wanted to do something different, but in the hotel
business only. He was not too much for working as a
waiter, as that wasn't at all well paying to start
with. So, one day, while glancing through a book on
hotel management, his eyes landed on the job of the
domestic butlers, which, when he read, he found out
that they were very well paid and were in great demand
in the many foreign countries around the world,
thought not many were in vogue in India. He also read
about an Indian who was a butler to the Prince of
Wales and was having a very good career. Though many
people considered this job like a "glorified servant",
he did not have any such misconceptions. So, Girish
had a talk with his parents and they agreed to his
choice of future plans. Even he himself considered it
as a good option, seeing his father do so well, in
somewhat the same field and now was determined to go
in for the course of Hotel Management.
When he decided that he would go in for hotel
management, and when the news about the decision of
Girish, spread in the family (Indian families being
rather huge and conservative), many comments and
taunts started coming in. Some said that after being
such a good student what was the need for him to go in
for this profession. A few of them said that it was
very servile to do such a job. Few considered it
against the religion, they being Hindus etc., some
said that it was foolish to get such good education
and end up serving in a hotel and all such
old-fashioned comments. Girish and both his parents
paid no heed to the flurry of comments that increased
as the news of Girish's choice of profession spread in
their large family. All the arrangements for sending
Girish to Australia, his visa, ticketing arrangements,
admission in the hospitality institute, lodging etc.
was made and he left India bidding farewell to his
friends and family.
Girish went to Sydney to pursue his three-year
bachelors degree, and also a specialized course in
being a domestic butler. He was an excellent student
and topped in academics as well as the on-job training
and the exam. He was one of the best in his batch.
When he passed out, fortunately for him the Australian
Tourism was in a boom period and he had a variety of
jobs from which he could choose.
There was a very rich businessman of Australia,
one of the top five of the country to be precise,
whose son, Michael, who till now had been pursuing his
business management degree in the United States, had
returned back home to Sydney. He had been away from
home for a long time now, nearly six years and his
father wanted that he would have his son looked after
by the best people available in the country. During
the six years, Michael had changed a lot, be it his
personality, attitude, attraction towards people and
the like. He had now started having a broader
perspective in life, and as he had not come back to
Australia even once during his course tenure, his
father had no idea about his son and his preferences
and priorities.
As Girish had excelled in his course, he had been
publicized a lot by the university as the best student
of the year, and also one of the best ever. He had his
pictures with a good amount of write-up about him in
the hospitality magazines and also the career
journals. Michael had read this news, while glancing
through one of the dailies. He wanted that the best
should work for him, as he was the best. He found
Girish, the hospitality genius very handsome and
tempting, thereby arousing his bisexual tendencies,
(to say so) as he never much cared for girls and
always looked forward to handsome chocolate boy type
guys. He knew that his father was one of the richest
men of Australia, and also that he loved him dearly
and would be ready to do anything for his dear son.
So, Michael told his father, Mr. Fleming about this
wish of his and his father assigned his managers to
find out about this man and tried to get him employed
as his son's butler, not letting out the real need
that he had and desired. After about a week, they
found their man and contacted him. Girish was more
than delighted when he was approached by one of the
richest business houses in Australia for a job. He
could not believe his luck that he was being offered a
rather prestigious job on a platter. He could have
never imagined this had he been in India, so he
readily accepted the offer for the interview with his
prospective master the following day.
