Life that is unpredictable

Uncle George woke up early in the morning and was surprised to see john already dressed up and all set for their yet another boat ride. Morning Uncle! said John. Let’s start moving. This time we are going towards south.

George: Im sorry son you know I won’t; actually I can’t.

John: Uncle I don’t understand why. But this time I have decided and I won’t take no as an answer. Pleaseee let’s go. Just once for me.

George: It’s been 25 years; I don’t remember the route either.

John: That’s alright, I have done my homework.

With this, George and John started their journey. John was super excited to explore this new route. It was something he always wanted and finally managed.

After some hours of ride, they decided to get a break.

John: Let’s quickly grab something to eat.

George: Yes son, a good idea. Let’s go to ‘The Jane’s’. It seems to be a good coffee shop.

The moment they entered the shop, john was struck by a beautiful young lady.

John: Hi Miss. I… we… you… sorry I am lost. Uncle George could you please place the order.

While uncle George was busy eating, john was lost in his own thoughts of living a happily married life with her. After sometime, john managed to approach the girl and exchanged few words. He came out smiling.

George: Shall we move ahead or you have changed your mind?

John: (with a smile) when we will return I am going to propose her. I know she is the one I want to spend my whole life with.

George: Ah, finally.

They both laughed.After spending an eventful day down south; john hand picked some flowers and champagne. As soon as they approached the shop, john became impatient. He rushed towards the shop and was happy seeing her again. Her sparkling eyes were love at first sight. But something has changed. She looks older than her age. Yes, young man what I can get for you? the lady asked. I.. I am looking for Miss Jane. You look so similar. Are you her aunt? No young man, I am Miss Jane.

John: But… I met her in the morning, she was a young girl, we talked to each other and I promised to return.

Miss Jane: Are you john? John from winderland?

John: Yes, that’s right. Now can you please call her. I can’t wait to see her.

Miss Jane broke in tears. Miss Jane: I waited, waited my whole life. How could you do this to me. You promised to return the same day but you are returning after 25 long years.

John was taken aback, he was confused and sad and lost at the same time.

John: What is going around. Is this a joke? Im right here returning after few hours of boat ride. Uncle George did you hear that. How is it possible?Uncle George: Son, I am still trying to solve mystery of my last visit.

John handed over the flowers and champagne to uncle George and left. Left to never look back.

Time passed by…While john was setting boat for the ride, mike asked Uncle john if they could go down south. To which john said Im sorry son you know I won’t; actually I just can’t.

Life is about hope

Once while travelling in an endless road in the midst of night, blustery wind was sending flurries of rain against the window. Silence was such that I could hear my own beats. My eyes wide open looking for one ray of light, one ray of hope.
No wonder, for sailors in deep dark ocean lighthouse is their only ray of hope providing assurance of life and safe entries to harbors.

Life is about challenges

Have you ever imagined a world without difficulties.. What if we all think alike? What if there is no competition what so ever? Undoubtedly life will be wrinkle free. However, this also means no innovation or transformation.
Ship in harbor is safe but that is not what ships are built for.
Let the ship sail!
