My job is quite irksome. Any job is irksome, you may say. May be true. But mine is particularly irksome. I am an insurance agent. You have to convince people that it is in their interest to insure themselves. But you have to avoid the words ‘accident’, ‘death’, etc., because no man (or woman for that matter) likes to conceive the idea that one day an accident might befall them or death may overtake them – especially so in a country like India where such words are considered inauspicious. But one has to be convinced to go for insurance precisely for such eventuality. Let alone India, even in the English civilization such inauspicious words are qualified by the mitigating phrase ‘God forbid’. Now, do you accept my job is quite irksome?
