Beggar's ego

On May 28th, i was waiting in the Kollam railway station to board the Mangalore Express. The train was supposed to arrive at 10.00 P.M. On that day, the train was not on time. It was late by 30 minutes. During this period, an interesting conversation took place between a fellow passenger(A middle aged person) and the beggar.
Beggar :"Please give me some alms..."
Passenger(affirmatively):" I will not give you anything."
Beggar: "Please....". He pleaded.
Passenger(authoritatively): "If you are not going away from my sight,i will call the RPF".
Beggar(angrily):"Do you know expansion of the abbreviation RPF. I know them better than you. I just asked you to do some charity. If you can't then say no. But who are you to call the RPF. He went on blabbering...."
The passenger's embarrassment had no bounds.
P.S: Beggar's ego; Non-beggars' embarrassment.

Annus Mirabilis

I was travelling by a flight ;air hostesses were serving the snacks; every thing on the earth were looking like ants;then suddenly i pinched my hand to check that all these were not surreal. Yeah.. It was on 8th April, my dream of flying in an aeroplane materialised. Year 2010 is a memorable and wonderful year to me till date. I visited Mumbai, Ranchi (also MS Dhoni's house from outside), Patna, Bodh Gaya and Kolkata. Also,convocation of my M.Tech is going to be held on May 5,2010 and got promotion in the profession which i pursue. Being a theist, i would like thank my almighty for the wonderful year.

P.S: I dream but don't dream to materialise those dreams. Bad dreamer.. isn't it?
