Being a bookworm I always have a book in my bag and whenever i travel, if i dont have one to read, the journey simply doesnt happen for me. I always live in a theoretical world of dreams where things can be corrected and where there is always hope for the confirmists.

It was on one such journey, a routine one for that matter - from office to home, that i learnt a very valuble lesson. I am very fond of self help books and the book i was reading that day was highly recommended by my friend

(Kandipa padi..nalla irukumnu color ribbonlam katti..mickey mouse poata bookmarklam vachu..highlighter vachu shadelam poatu..dog ears varama..pudu vasana kuda pogama attai kuda kasangama oru book...atha vida azhaga oru ponnu antha booka recommend panni kudutha..athu telephone directorya irunthalum NewYork Times Bestsellera thana namma kannuku theriyum :))

I dont understand the crowd pattern logic of commuters of 21G bus. Monday morning, whatever the time be and how many ever be the number of buses, all of them would be jampacked. Come tuesday they would be running almost empty. And friday evenings again they would be packed to the core!!! Is it something like people travel once a week to tambaram and return only on weekends?? It was one such free weekday. I was immersed in my book as usual, glancing outside from time to time to check for my stopping. One school going kid, oru pathu vayasu irukumnu nenakren, was sitting next to me. He was trying to read the book along with me. When i read something, especially when its newspaper, if someone tries to peep in or read it along with me, i get really irritated. I first shifted my position and turned the book away. That kid was one vidaakondan and again tried to read the book along with me. I got even more annoyed and closed the book. That kid looked at me and smiled.

"You want to read the book? you can give it to me when i get down" I said.
"No..no..no...i was getting bored. My stop is the last one..i am sorry if i've disturbed you."
It was my turn to feel offended. "Thats ok."
"Whats that book about by the way"
"How to make friends and influence people by Dale carnegie. You've heard about that author?" I asked in a scholarly way.
"No"
"Hmm..the content is bit high for your age now. You may not understand most of the contents."
"Why do you need a book to tell you how to make friends? I just smile. See..i just smiled at you and you've become my friend now." That kid gave me his brightest smile once again.
I buried my face back into the book.

Nice ending Dude. Most of us do not understand that the solution for most of the problems is so simple.
