What happened yesterday was completely stunning. There were too many co-incidences and it is too much to believe it was not God’s will.
Had to take a 5:50 am flight to Delhi to attend to a case in the Supreme Court – a sticky messy case and we thought it would get extended once again….as always.
So I got up at 3.30am..and decided to take a train (how all I travel to and from the airport is a separate post). It was pouring in Mumbai…and that was an irritation because it would have limited my options.
Just as I was getting out of the house…there was no rain. So here was I in a white shirt, black pant, leather shoe…NO UMBRELLA..walking (well NOt in the rain!!). Suddenly I decided to Jog ..and that increased my speed in my walk to the nearest railway station. Suddenly from the corner of my eye saw the train..and mentally gave up. Then decided to run (OMG all the 83 kg of me..in a leather shoe wet roads ..etc) and got the train.
Got off at Kurla…ran and took an auto. At 4.30 am nice to get an auto who listens to you…and reached the airport. There was such a long queue at the Mumbai airport …(Jairam Ramesh YOU will be the architect of Mumbai’s fall?). Reached the Spice Jet counter…and ha..just checked in. No luggage …44 minutes to go for the flight.
Again a long queue at the Security….ha with a boarding pass, now it was SJ’s problem..but got in no sweat.
NORMALLY I carry ONLY my pan-card as a photo-identity but yesterday decided to carry my election I-card also. The real truth is I was wondering whether to carry my voters I-card instead of my Pancard – just in case..!
However reached the Supreme Court (poor attitude at the Meru pre-paid counter, but decent taxi service) at 9am. For a Supreme Court Identity card they NEEDED a photo I-card WITH ADDRESS – that meant my Voters I-card got used.
Went into the Court…Judge said..let us finish the case..in 10 minutes we were out. WITH A VERDICT, not an admission of SLP.
Amazing – could have missed the train, a breakdown of auto was possible, a slight delay in the train, a longer queue (anywhere) ………any of these things could have ensured that I did not go.
But I went, reached on time, faced the lawyers, sat through the judgment… still cannot believe.
Thank you God, thusi great ho..!
PS: I realize that even if I had not gone the decision would have been the same, in the whole scheme of the things in the world, it would not have mattered..but just it feels good to count your blessings.
