Fahh.. your SMILE only.!! :)


My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning and yet I am happy. I cant' figure it out. What am I doing right.? huuhh.. Its certainly not my thought, but the state of course. This is by Charles Schulz, an American cartoonist who created a comic "Peanuts" and put millions of smiles on human faces. Most of us knows this. This is how I experienced his thought.

Just 2-3 hours ago, I was on my bike to get my Moms' blood sugar report, its not that normal but regular walks can control that. So I was like chill. Riding a bike, only in the evening, is fav to-do thing on my daily schedule these days. It was as always a cool soothing air and Akons' "Beautiful" was buzzing in my ear phone, its just the fantastic being in such state. Akon, bike, cool winds, no jerky roads and very rare traffic. I just feel like 'The Salvation". Being with myself and pampering like are my nowadays- buzz words.

Cars, bikes, and others were passing by. I was watching them, shooking my head on the rhythm of songs buzzing . It was all going fun as usual. Then in a moment of fraction one Scorpio was passed very rashly, that too overtaking me. It was like a bad stroke which suddenly whirled my epinephrine and then chase began. Overtook in 2 min.

Then again the same thing, overtaking. This time again the same Scorpio. By the time we did a rounds of this overtake-thing 2 to 3 times, I very seriously noticed that someone inside the car was enjoying this with all the heavy laughter. On the careful observation I realized that she was a someone as cute as Angel, around 3 to 4 years of age.

Whenever I overtook, she used to become sad. And whenever her car overtook me, she had all the joys of victory on her face. It was feeling so satisfying to look her smiling that for sometime I thought is it only this small thing that can make her happy, that can make her smile.? Awesomee..!! Of course, the few wonders of the world exist while there are those with the sight to see them.

For some times I won the race and for most of the times I lost. Have you ever witnessed that sweet, innocent and selfless smile.? Anything for that.. The best part comes now. While I was on my winning and losing marathon, she was well aware that I was losing intentionally, and I was shocked to notice this awareness. The time came when I smiled at her and was bidding goodbye gesture "bybye" by shooking my left hand as I had to take turn.

To my surprise, she called me with her small right hand by "come here" gesture. We were in motion, there was hardly a time to think what were her intentions. I didn't think much and went closer by. As soon as I reached near her rear window she handed over me a small folding of papers, many papers and thrown flying kisses, byebyes. I kept those inside my shirt and replied her with the same kisses and byes. Happily departed.

I was like on the top of the world. It was just a feeling of something good was moving inside. I dont know what it was.! infact what it is.. uhh..!! After 5 min, I stopped for fag n tea near my patented tapri. I took one sip and removed those papers from inside my Tee to see what it was. And guess what it was.. "Peanuts" by Charles Schulz.

I am still touched.

Luck. Shan :)
