Mysterious ways!

It was Friday. I decided to return back home by BEST AC bus (public transport in Mumbai). I reached the main road thinking logically that a bus stop should be nearby. That logical thinking backfired as I had to walk for almost 1/2 an hour to reach the stop. Normally, 1/2 an hour of walking doesn't matter to me. But it was Friday, Friday evening to be precise. It's the day you psychologically feel you have given your everything at work and is about to enter a 2-day break! You don't need an 1/2 hr struggle, now do you?

Anyways, I finally reached the stop. Logically, I knew the bus should be coming soon as I didn't see my bus zooming past me when I was walking. Which means, logically, my bus is due any moment. That moment continued for another 1/2 an hour! I saw people who came after me, happily boarding their buses. I had moments when I was alone in the bus stop! And all this on a damn Friday! Anyone would crib about it - I know I did. In between all the curses in my mind towards anyone I saw and could possibly remember that time (sorry if you were a part of it), my AC bus finally came!

Now you would be thinking, finally this chap will stop cribbing and start dreaming of an ideal weekend (sleep and sports, in my case). Nopes! The bus was crowded. Or at least I thought so when it arrived. I boarded the bus, logically, as I didn't have the patience to wait for another 1/2 an hour hoping for an empty bus! Once inside, I started searching for a seat, illogically, I must admit. But guess what, I found one empty seat! Last row. That makes sense, as sitting in the last row of an AC bus is like sitting in an air-conditioned rick with legs closer to your chest than you think! Literally. As I approached the seat, I felt as if I am the luckiest man alive (for that moment, i.e.). And it has nothing to do with the seat!

Flashback - For the past few months, I was planning with my Engineering friends to have a get-together someday! Albeit unsuccessfully. The idea was to at least plan a lunch together and then move on to bigger things like a weekend trip! Lunch itself seems to be a bigger hurdle to cross.

Guess who I met that day in the bus!

YES! One of my friends was in the bus. Last seat. And the empty seat I got was right adjacent to his. After a long time, man! What a way to end the week!

God surely works in mysterious ways!

And by the way, we ended our discussion by planning a lunch together - Until next time!

PS: Long time no see guys! Apologies from my end. Lots of things happening at my end. Whats up?
