We always feel lucky to see the part of the world that inspires us.
I must say that I am quite grateful to breathe and see the works of David Fincher. Maybe he has captured every situation of our lives.
I happened to rush down four stairs of our office building on the evening of July the 12th. As the memory pushed me to remember my forgotten charger, I have no chance but to climb the stairs. It took another half an hour as my boss insisted on listening to his brilliant idea. As I have an enough comfort to leave the building,
Poets would have described the evening as calm as still water until it went cats and dogs. It came to a halt only to show me that I had no money in my pockets. I walked to the nearest ATM and as it was a late evening, it consists of notes worth two thousand rupees. My eyes left the calm mood and began to find a way to get enough money for bus fare. It found the nearest bookstore midst the soaking weather,
“What do you want, brother..?” A young man asked, only after he removed his headset.
“Uh…That book” directed to the extreme left.
The shopkeeper gave a smile at the two thousand rupee note in my hand for a book worth about fifty rupees.
“You could’ve asked for a change,..” he said to me while I was leaving the store.
That is how I’ve got Rudyard Kipling’s Captain’s Courageous and the currency notes suitable for my bus fare…
Only If I haven’t forgotten the charger,
Only If the ATM had one more hundred currency left,
Only If I haven’t had an impression that no one would give me a change for two thousand rupee note,
Only If I haven’t been kind to offer thirty rupees to a beggar on the morning run,
I wouldn’t have got the book.
It is an exact replica of a scene from the 2008 movie named ‘The curious case of Benjamin Button’ directed by David Fincher.
The book isn’t the greatest read but the process is…
To think of various perceptions and get to know the importance of every moment…
I began to think that it might be how I’ve started to write quarterly stories.
Thank you for reading…
