Searching Eyes!

28 07 2016

I became a good boy today. I decided to use public transport instead of my vehicle.

With grey overcast conditions, there was a stormy build up to the evening. With the intermittent raindrop playing traunt with the already chaotic Mumbai traffic, here I was waiting patiently for my turn.
Watching the vehicles slowly trudge past dodging the potholes, realised our country had indeed come a long way. Many miles away from the fiats and the ambassadors that we had not so long ago on the roads.

Patience was never my virtue at the bus stop, I realised there was something else that glued me to this venue. How the traffic literally turns deaf even to the ambulance and blind to the old man who wants to reach his abode.

Completely helpless waiting, I realised I had couple of women alongside host others waiting to get in the desired bus. All along sitting silently, I observed they were waiting for a rick to share, a vehicle to stop by them asking them “kahin chhod doon”? (Shall I drop you somewhere)? With drenched clothes braving the rains and with the purse bulging with the tiffin box inside itself is a challenge, wonder what keeps these ladies motivated everyday?

Every vehicle were scrutinised, every public bus checked for its route number, every private car for its familiarity face inside. But this wasn’t the case, there eyes were waiting, they were searching for something. Searching for the glimmer of hope that they too could have been behind one of those vehicles. Drive back home in the back seat of comfort. Eyes that were asking, where did we go wrong?

Feeling of miserability hit me while the lightning struck behind the already dark clouds behind me. Why didn’t the ladies families not inculcate the habit of investments? Doesn’t the lady of the house deserve better comfort? Does it get so difficult for a family to save couple of thousands every month to see comforting days? Does our monthly budget go haywire by investing rather than fall for mediocrity? Questions galore and answers not so easy to come by.

Delighted at having my bus storm towards me, with my eyes glued in still daze, I saw SEARCHING EYES. I am still wondering, how to provide them with drops of prosperity relief.

Hopefully, I will be able to get them aboard on the prosperity vehicle soon.

Till then, sayonara.
