Strangers...

He didn’t hear the alarm. Got up late. Did his daily routines in a hurry. “Do you need Tiffin?” his mom asked. He heard, but didn’t reply. He took his bike. His sister came running holding the jacket “Take this if you need. You had asked for it yesterday. Its raining.” He didn’t answer. Wore the jacket and raced towards office.

“Good morning, Sir” Genial receptionist greeted him. No, this time also he didn’t react. He went to his cabin. The whole day he was insipid. He returned home early. Then he went to the sunset point that was very nigh to his place. Hw saw the sun dipping down the horizon. He wanted to shout. He wanted to talk. He looked around. Strangers, he found only strangers. The whole world seemed to him full of strangers. Where are my friends? He searched. Or did I have any? He pondered…

He went to meet his friend who had promised to meet. Waited. Waited some more. Friend came. “Sorry, how long have you been here? Actually I am little busy and have to go.” He didn’t answer. Smiled at him. Bid Goodbye. Came back home. “Come and have food.” His father said. He didn’t react. He went inside and covered himself under the blanket. Strangers, the whole world is of strangers

Cruel reality. And it always boils down to one point according to me- we've become too busy to spend a little time for our family and friends. We don't have time to listen to our friends. Its time we stood back and looked and analysed our lives to see what we've prioritised and whether its correct or not.

yupp but that lies in how u see ppl...if u think everyone is literally a 'stranger' then they wud be so...but if u stop becoming a 'stranger' too then perhaps u might find a friend... :)

on the other hand, I know wut u mean Vinu...ppl r strangers no matter wut cos no one can be trusted until they take a dip in the testing waters of difficult times...
