Everyone gets a fair share of a bad day; I was facing the
heat too. It was one such day for me in college. It was the time when we were organizing
a departmental fest. We were looking at a complete change of the genre of events from the previous years;
which was causing some doubts and questions in the minds of the professors who
were in charge of the event. I was losing my patience as endless volleys of
questions were being thrown at our team, deliberating over every little detail.
Even though it was a good thing, it felt like our team was in the court and on a
murder trial. My head was throbbing very badly and at the next given opportunity I
slipped out to the canteen. Grabbing a cup of coffee, I sat and was gazing up
at the sky, agitated and frustrated. It was
a breezy afternoon with clouds brushing the horizon. I was always fascinated by clouds. Even as I was looking,
winds were tossing the her, here and there, I could empathize, that thought made
me chuckle to myself. I didn’t realize the next few moments could be so crucial
to my life. I saw the clouds gather into a figure of someone standing with
their hands out-stretched, an epitome of kindness, Jesus Christ. After a few
seconds, they dramatically re-shuffled into a pouncing lion. I smiled and
thanked the moment, Nature was such a powerful force, yet she took time to
attend to individual needs. I learnt a valuable lesson that instant.
“I saw the winds to be the situations that toss and turn us.
If we are like the clouds, dynamic to adapt and willing to mould ourselves then
living becomes easy. However, willing to mould needs to be used with a little
assertion, one needs to be like Jesus Christ, shower kindness on everyone. However
if situations are going to exploit that, then it is good to become a pouncing
lion. They also showed that, resisting change can never be helpful, because
winds takes you to places – places that could make you experienced and wise. Also
lighter the clouds, easier they can be shifted and adapted, heavy clouds,
usually get stagnated and pours down. Similarly, when you are eager to learn and
not a slave to emotions and attachments, there is no end to what you can learn
As I finished my coffee, I felt regenerated and all set to
take up the task. I went back our discussions room, with a grin plastered
across my face and beaming. The fest went ahead smoothly, and it was a grand
success fighting against all the odds.
That is my call for C today
