A day’s start…

Standard

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!

  1. It felt like being on the roads of Chennai during peak hours on a typical working day. You are right about the thoughts being more chaotic than the seemingly chaotic rhythms of life.

  2. You said it Priya … the hustle and bustle of city life. Ironically most of this is unnoticed as we the noise around us has become a tune so common.
