There are periods when everything seems to go against you almost as if someone up there was trying to tell you something. The signs are all there all of a sudden. That wonderful phone you bought from your own pay suddenly disappears into thin air. Absolutely no explaining what might’ve happened to it. One minute you’re adoring it and the next it’s gone! All that love and it’s all gone! And then you’re left with the memories… ~sigh~
If that isn’t sign enough, all the teams you support, be it cricket or football end up on the losing side. First time ever that your team reaches the Champions League final and against arch rivals your team loses on penalties…that too because captain dependable slips and misses the mark. Coming back from a losing streak, your team in the IPL comes off on a fabulous winning streak defeating everyone in their path and then fails to make the cut losing the last three matches off the last ball, all of them that could’ve gone either way!
Then battered you wanna come back home and so you decide to leave really early to not miss the train. You reach 3 hours before the scheduled departure and for the first time in your recorded history, there are no vacant seats! None! Cursing, you get to the bus stand and after waiting in line for over an hour, they inform you that the next bus available is after a good couple of hours. Still not one to give up, you quickly switch over to the other bus service. You clamber onto the bus and it breaks down half way! Resigning yourself to fate, you wait a couple of hours for an alternate bus to be arranged.
Well, sometimes nothing can go your way. But I am not one to give up, am I? I hold on and know there is a silver lining to this cloud too. After all, Bikram’s Law does state “Everything that can go wrong, will…only to get better than before!” Well, it stands true. Things did get better (touchwood!)
