Observation is the best Teacher…!!

And the journey from Malad to Airoli begins…. (I was travelling back to home from office in my office bus..)
Today I preferred to keep my headset and Smartphone inside the bag and felt just to observe the people on the road (observing people is my hobby..) and I swear I really saw two different sides of life today, like two sides of coins, we call Head and Tail. What I saw was RICH vs POOR…!!
Rich people… enjoying the shopping… roaming in their Mercedes, BMW.. Audi…. with those branded clothes and accessories…with every comfort.. but I wonder why tensed faces….. πŸ™‚ They can be known as greedy… !! for something more and more.. and again more..! A guy in Maruti 800 wants Mercedes, Mercedes wants BMW, BMW wants Audi, Audi wants Ferrari.. (I can list other expensive cars here.. but that’s out of topic.. πŸ™‚ )
I saw some middle class crowd enjoying food and tea at TAPRI….. wow.. such a great life…. πŸ™‚ They must be enjoying…!!
It touched my heart when I moved my eyes on other side… where I saw an old, poor man carrying 2-3 sacks containing kg’s of grains on his back….. probably that has more weight than his own body weight…sweating badly….thinking about his past.. thinking about his family… no money to buy a comfort but still a smile and the freshness on the face…. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
Those sweepers, poor ladies… rikshawalas.. all were very happy and satisfied in their life…… smile on the faces.. πŸ™‚

Poor little boys playing with a zest with no knowledge of future, no worries, no tensions….with a smiling faces.. πŸ™‚ afterall that is what childhood is… (said in Marathi : Lahanpan dega deva, Mungi sakhrecha rava..).. !!! (missing my childhood now.. πŸ˜₯ )

Couples were deeply, madly in love…. of course at Powai lake…(I felt jealous, I have no one to pamper.. 😦 Β  :/ Β .).. .they were smiling.. πŸ™‚

I saw some ladies eagerly waiting for customers toΒ buy the roadside vegetables…..
And several more things which touched my heart……… I went into tears…!! πŸ˜₯Β 

I really wonder how all these people hide all their sorrow behind that sweet smile!!!!! Though one has not at all seen that good side of life even once… how can anyone be so happy even only in the darkness of life!!!
My Italian boss always says.. “You Indians are always Happy and with smiling faces”…Today I totally agree with him… β€œSimply Incredible INDIA”…. .. no more words….
(Lastly… Thank you god… I’m really a blessed child… u have always shown me the beauty of life and kept away from those troubles……)
Awesome day it was… very special….. Now, I can unflinchingly say that I have learnt a lot from life today …..
