One fine day, I reached the metro station with one friend.
We waited for my other friend who is interested to join us in the metro travel.
He was little late to reach the metro stop.
A few minutes later he reached the metro with heavily sweating (as it was summer time) on his face. Seems he ran to reach the metro station.
So I asked him, ‘why don’t you come slowly without running?’
He had given a sensitive response that is ‘If we go slowly, we would take more time reach our goal. The goals won’t wait for us.
If I come slowly I could take the next metro to reach the destination but I can’t reach the destination on time’.
I was on my way to the metro one evening.
I need to travel around 1 hour to reach my destination.
I have some urgent task which needs to be done at my destination.
But I didn’t go by metro because one of my friends had asked me to wait saying that he would drop me by his car.
So, I was waiting for him in the metro station which is near his car parking area.
I too thought I could reach my destination earlier than by traveling metro & free of cost.
But he was plunged in his work & couldn’t communicate the delay.
I waited for 30 to 40 minutes at the metro station.
He called me after 40 minutes and told me that he will not be able to drop me to today.
I was really pissed at him.
Then I went by metro to my destination.
Also, I missed my task which had to be completed within the day itself. As a result of this, I got too angry on my friend again.!
I just realized that I have to prioritize what is important so that it doesn’t stop my important tasks.
After a long time, I met one of my friend(metro friend) in the metro. I have seen him one or two times. There is a story behind our friendship.
One fine day, I was going to office by metro. My commute time approximately 40 minutes(I need to pass 15 stops to reach my office station).
After the 4th stop, the train was ready to leave from the platform. The door was closed automatically & one of the passenger’s finger stuck with the door. The train moved from the station as well. The passenger was not able to get her finger out from the door and cried so much because of pain.
My friend(metro friend) went near to the passenger and tried to help out, but he was failed. Immediately he called the metro police and arranged the ambulance for the passenger.
Next stop, the door was opened and my friend helped the passenger. The passenger’s finger was filled with blood. Meantime, Police & ambulance arrived in that stop and able to give first-aid.
After that incident, I thanked him for that incident/help to that passenger. Also, we introduced each other.
I haven’t seen him many days. Recently I have seen him in the metro but I forget his name. I was just trying to remember his name but I failed. I can able to visualize that incident only.
Likewise, In our real life, We used to forget the name of some heroes but our mind is not programmed to forget their good deeds.
Do the Good Deeds and get the name of good deeds.
Today, Our office applications are down due to annual maintenance. So we didn’t have much work. All of our colleagues are happy that they got a free time in office.
Initially we got a communication that the application would work after 5’o (P.M) clock. But we got an another mail that the maintenance extended to next day (till morning 10’o clock).
We were happy again after seeing that mail.
Likewise, we could face many struggles in our day to day lives. But why don’t we give a break to our lives to explore new places and enjoy( like the annual maintenance for the application in my organization) !
During my travel time, I could see a lot of people in my bus and train. But all the strangers are not my relative. We have very less opportunity to make them as a relation of our life Some relationship will longer for short time and some of the relationships will continue until the end of life. Sometimes I used to think that how can I make all these people as my friends in life.
Is it possible? No, It’s not possible. you can make them as a friend of your life. But they want to accept as a friend of their life.
That is LIFE..!
