You’re Fired, by Sankar Chatterjee

While flying back from overseas, the strongman terminated his top gun via a tweet. On tarmac, he stood alone in torrential rain, being unable to ride with the rest.

Mr. Howard Smith, MD, PhD, was not surprised. As the principal investigator, he had to terminate ongoing studies of a new medicine displaying hints of toxicity, thus affecting future profit-line. Next morning, he was similarly terminated. At noon, two security guards took him to his parked car. He couldn’t even finish saying “Good-bye” to his colleagues of past twenty years.

This country learned how to humiliate and destroy a human soul.
