A funny thing happened on my way to home from college.

  Rain was about to show its hungriness. After the hectic college schedule I was rushing to my home with holding an umbrella. After some distance of walking I heard a footstep behind me. I ignored it at first but a thought came to my mind “may be someone is following me.” It’s a say that once negativity comes to your mind, it’s hard to turn your back on it.

I relaxed myself and increase my speed of walking but the person also increased his speed. My heart started to pound rapidly. I started to run but only to found his footstep matching mine.

Suddenly I stopped in the middle of the road and bashed the edge of my umbrella on the stomach of the anonymous person. “Ouch...” he cried. At that time I felt Kiran Bedi mounted in me.

“Miss, your dropped it near the college gate.” He uttered in pain holding his stomach and slowly handed me the purse. “ purse, ohh thanks.” Calmness rose in my face. “But you already thanked me with your umbrella” he said with a weird expression.

Embarrassment slammed in my face. “Um...sorry....and....thank you for the purse.” I whispered at once, took a half turn and started to rush towards my home.

This is a true story, happened when I was in 12th standard and that was the most awkward moment for me.

    1. It's because now in this world you can't trust anyone i made my mind for that action......

  3. Awe that story has such a sweet ending. I totally agree that when a negative thought enters our mind it is a bit tough get it out of there, especially when his footsteps were matching yours!

    1. Hmm...some actions lead us to negative thought, but thank god I only bashed him once....
