Whoever said life is easy, life is fun, etc, had perhaps not really looked around, the way I did – yesterday. To give you a background, am the sorts whom one can call as ‘predominantly preoccupied’ for most parts and occasionally, like yesterday, do try to give the zen philosophy of ‘living the moment’ a shot. An inspiring start for the day with an appointment with a noted person, I did not want to be late & yet just about made it on time. Atleast had managed to appear prim & proper, leaving no clue of the devastation at home, this last minute rush had taken.
On my way back after the meeting , now breathing better, I decided to take a look around….and what did I find?
a) Men & women taking serious interest in the colours of light. The Green light meant “CHARrrrrrrgggggge”, Amber light “get ready to charge” and Red “Damn, I missed it”. Surely this bursts the myth in the rhyme “Stop says the red light, Go says the green…..”.
b) Every vehicle seemed to have a bus to catch. Each one competing against the other. It’s truly a battle of skills to test.
c) Our dear autodrivers spending their lifetime fleecing their customers and customers spending their fortune travelling in these autos (me being one of the regulars!) .
d) An accident almost occurred due to carelessness of a biker – what ensued in this near accident scenario was a verbal rampage, with no reported external injuries.
e) My trusted lieutenant, my servant maid , calls up for a favour & cribs to death (my near death i.e) about her alocoholic husband and her financial woes.
f) Finally as i passed by a park, looked forward to a better sight but as far as I could see it was deserted barring a couple of lazy dogs, who had given up looking for a bone & was resignedly enjoying the sun tan.
Nothing new about the chaos. Finally i was left contemplating, if my thoughts in my mind were more chaotic than the everyday chaos of life!
