Professionals around the world were asked to start working from home as the coronavirus pandemic shut down offices last year. Now, with the roll-out of the Covid vaccine, some offices have started to call the employees back to the office. And many are not happy about saying goodbye to lazy mornings and working from the comfort of their beds.
A video of a woman ranting about returning to the office has created a buzz online. The video was posted on Instagram by Harjas Sethi.
She says, “Kaafi dil dehlaane vali ghatna hui hai mere sath. Abhi tin pehle office se ek email aaya with the subject line – Return to work. Toh kya matlab hua iska? Matlab ab razai se nikalkar, nahakar, taiyaar hokar office jaana padega. Logon ki shakalein dekhni padengi.“
Sethi goes on to say that she has not been asked to come back to the office yet. She has just been asked how safe she feels about coming back to the office. “Meri rooh kaanp gayi hai,” Sethi exclaims.

She asks the employer, “Karna hi kyun hai? Sabki zindagiyaan thik chal rahi hain. Tumhaar revenue badh raha hai. Tumhara transport aur facility ka paisa bach raha hai. Kyun bechare gareeb ke pet pe laat maar rahe ho.“
She goes on to share how she has packed up her jeans and become comfortable living in her pyjamas. “Ho na paayega,” she adds.
The clip ends with Sethi requesting her employer to not fire her after watching the video.
The video was shared on Instagram on February 11, however, it went viral after it made its way to Twitter. It has garnered more than 1.13 lakh views and over 4,400 likes. Netizens found Sethi’s rant relatable.
One user said, “Sahi bol rhi ladki… Ye Sawal koi mazak me bhi Puch le to rooh kanp jati hai…” Another wrote, “Wo dark circles and packing wala mast tha.“
A third user commented, “Wo last line me HR ka darr saaf saaf dikh rha hau.” Yet another added, “The zoya factor in the last moment.”
