What happens if I quit my job in two days?

I had just started working in a big MNC
but after two days I realised this is
not the place for me.So I sent a mail
to my HR saying that I resign. There
was no bond requiring me to work for a
specified period.Can the company take
legal action against me? What is the
worst that can happen?

If you have no employment contract or union agreement governing your resignation, then as an "at will" employee you are free to leave your employer at any time that you choose, even after just 2 days.
