We all have, at some point, made up really ridiculous excuses for missing work, but this government employee from Gujarat will give us all a run for our money, with his out of the universe excuse!
A superintending engineer with the Sardar Sarovar Punarvasvat Agency (SSPA), Rameshchandra Fefar, in response to a show-cause notice sent to him regarding his absence from work, said that he can’t come to work as he is the 10th incarnation of lord Vishnu, and that he is conducting a "penance" to "change the global conscience". Because of this unusual “cause”, the notice and Fefar's reply to it has gone viral.
Yes, people, joy to the world because Kalki has arrived!
"Even if you don't believe, I am indeed the tenth incarnation of Lord Vishnu and I will prove it in coming days. I realised that I am Kalki Avatar when I was in my office in March 2010. Since then, I am having divine powers," Fefar said, speaking to media at his Rajkot house today.
Now, how can we not believe the word of the lord himself!
"I am doing penance at home by entering into fifth dimension to change the global conscience....I can't do such penance sitting in office," the two-page reply said.
Fefar, oh...sorry, Lord Kalki said that our country has been receiving good rainfall for the past 19 years because of his penance!
I guess, now is the time to be grateful to the lord!
He said that the SSPA should decide "whether it's more important for the agency to make me sit in the office and do time pass or do some concrete work to save the country from drought," he said, adding "Just because I am Kalki Avatar, India got good rains."
Fefar was issued the show cause notice because he attended his Vadodara office for only 16 days during the last eight months. I think we should understand the lord keeps busy!
"Such unauthorised absence does not suit a gazetted officer. Work of the agency is getting hampered because of your absence," the notice read.
Let’s hope now that because of this show cause notice, the mere mortals like us don’t face the wrath of lord Kalki!
