    A day in the life of a Cashier

    Prologue Capitalism , you are ruthless human's value , you know not Capitalism , you are worthless Good virtue , you know not All you can value is money People having hegemony What's the value of human toil What's the value of plough and soil ?? Money is your greatest symbol That values here , relations all A Bank is its repository A place shrouded in mystery Here is the man ! its guardian Its entrustéé- custodian Smithian -- keynesian (but not from prosperous scion ) He who seems arrogant to some He who seems vehement to some He who seems to someone ;; dear He is our mister cashier !!! ----------------- But ...... Sir .... Before deciding , let me have a say Handling cash is not my forte I can handle people on the desk That cash chamber is a place grotesque.... You are non performing .... generate no sale Banking has to run on profitable scale Non performance i cannot bear That's why i force you as cashier ----------------- Alarm rings ! twanging sound from the bell He wakes up as if back from hell The hell he had been in yest'' day He will return there -- o Dismay ! Cash ! Cabin ! Claustrophobia keeps causing him insomnia (( Recession ! , i better not sob its better that i do this job !! )) Petrified glance ! (at the small pouch) that keeps causing him oohs & ouch Assuring its safe custody The cashier becomes ready for his redundant job........ ---------- I am damn sure that boss will shout tis too late already ( fat boss will shout ) Sir , my bike failed , twas not my fault boss :::: ----You bufoon ! go and open the vault That can cause giant companies to crash Neatly bundled ... safely kept is the cash Follow Guidelines and all circular The quantum of cash should be regular Any difference -- You will be liable to your exchequer You are its guardian - care taker --------- S.o.d not done ! but people start queueing For poor cashier there's no releaving Work load ! washed ! tawny face People look at you with frowny face Come on ! we have other jobs to do The cashier smiles with a clowny face Dirty notes -- Smelly notes -- torn notes-- oiled notes Scribbled notes - folded notes - roiled notes - soiled notes Farmer's money - doctor's money - teacher's money White money -- black money -minister's money - Whole day who squabbles and wrangles for money Cant take a single dime -- what an irony ------- Days is progressing -- usual lull (( On this glass should i smash my skull )) Ip messenger ! irksome technology B/m in his usual pedagogy Boss : Rohit ! your approach lacks endurance Business is what i want -- sell insurance Weekend deadline ! Try till you exhaust Bring a policy at whatsoever cost .... (( Although my approach might seem hazy It does not mean that i am lazy )) Cannot confirm also cannot deny Sir ..... but ...... Sir ..... ok ..... I will try ------ Humid room .... A/c whirling at its full speed Pungent smell - as if someone's smoking weed This place is richer than one's belief Cash keeps on coming ! there is no relief --------- Moist eyes ! Lumpy throat ! bombarded heart Managing cash is not that easy art Tally ! come on ! tally ! why's this shortfall Let me check neatly transactions all Debits are ok ..... credits are ok -- they tally Yet why this mismatch -- this anomaly . . . . . . Receipts - payments - transfers - remittance All inspection done -- yet there is difference Another case of shortfall in my docket Ah ! yet another whack on my pocket The cash is bundled - put back into vault I was a victim of someone else's fault ..... Pay the cash or go ....... (to jail) A month's salary i had to forgo -------- each day is furtherance of the past this redundancy will forever last but firmly now - i decide - i swear Never in my life i'll be a cashier ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Notes Pouch denotes vault keys ...... a half of the full keys remain with cashier and half with the superior ops head based on my own experience , working as a cashier ....... sod - start of the day ..... a feature for initialising the branch operations in finnacle banking software by infosys which powers most of indian banking sector bank transactions Generally banking jobs in private sector in india involve cross selling ..... selling of bank's tied up products including life insurance , general insurance , mutual fund subscriptions etc .
