There Is No Limit How Much You Can Know From Life

Like many people I too don’t like to talk with other people in a journey , more so when it is a bus journey . Specially when one need to commute daily in the same root it may sometime create problems . And for girls it may sometime times create severe problem . Yes its true . The problems involved with this may range from mere vulnerability to some like unwanted marriage proposals too !

So I prefer to carry a magazine or a book , rather than to talk with strangers and create problems . Not that all people had some bad or not so good intentions , I need to take care of myself when I am alone . Like we cannot choose our parents , we cannot choose our co-passengers .Sometimes appearance can be deceiving .

Once I was on a short journey , just for two hours . As usual I was carrying a book after trying some pages I just let it lie on my lap . I was unaware who was sitting by my side . After 30 minutes of journey I had heard a voice , it sounded like it was aimed to me . I saw an old man , very nicely dressed . He started conversation and told me he had noticed me since I boarded the bus . This man was fine to talk , because he just wanted a patient listener , not asking many things to my embarrassment . He shared some great stories of his life . He was of the age of grand father and he knew many great people of his age personally . At the end of the conversation , it came out that he even knew my grandfather . I was pleasantly surprised at his revealation , felt more than just gratefulness to him , for starting conversation to me , who appeared to be a nerd to many people who too commute daily in the same root .

Whenver I recollect the incident my mind is filled with happy feelings , my grandfather died when I was just a toddler . In this person , suddenly felt such a nearness as if he was send by my grandfather .

    You are right. I also do not volunteer conversation when I travel in bus or train. If fellow traveller starts it I try to make it brief and to the point. No doubt, there are good people and you like to talk to them. But you can not know it in advance. Sometime I feel a nice fellow traveller in journey is a blessing.
