Similarities between Life and Road – a perspective
Manish blogs a discussion that he and I had over the similarities between the life and roads – on our return back from the inspection trip to the new office.
Here is an excerpt:
Ashish was at the wheel driving and I was playing navigator. He wasn’t quite sure of the route we had to take to reach the destination, so I was guiding him. At this one instant while we were heading straight I asked Ashish to take a left. As he swerved his steering wheel left he proclaimed, “Life doesn’t seem to be presenting me with a right turn, every turn is a left turn”. “That’s not true Ashish , just before you reach your destination there is a right turn which will take you straight to your destination”, I retorted, picturing the route in my mind and quickly calculating that there was a right turn we had to take to enter our office complex.
“If you get a right turn close to your destination what’s the use, you are already close to your destination, you should get a right turn when you are far away from your destination”, said Ashish, obviously the conversation was moving further away from just the rights and the lefts on the road. Ashish was co-relating the rights and the lefts with life.
If this sounds interesting, go to Manish’s blog to read the entire discussion. A word of caution – you need a bit of concentration – it is easy to get confused with those many lefts and rights!
