The disaster day

Well, in life, nothing is odd or even, there are moments of joy for every Gwyneth, Sara and Stephen. No two days can be said to be alike and they do not produce the same results at their ends, neither do they bring the same effect on one. Life has its share of twists and turns, can bring equally chills and burns, but if you have the power to be a loaded gun always, you might have a chance to survive with comfort and grace. Do we know what can happen tomorrow or can we change the truth and make it a lie? The answer is no we cannot. One day things happened to me, being not fine, well it was a ‘foul Friday’. I got up to be ready for school but forgot my Maths homework copy and my report card. And I took the routine of Tuesday instead of Friday. When I reached school I was stopped because of not having my badge on but somehow I managed my way in. I though got a heavy scolding for my mistakes. Then after school walking past a pavement I tripped and fell and it hurt as hell. Slowly limping I got to my bus stand. But alas, it had left. I stared and all my spirits went down in drains. Luckily one of my friends was leaving on his scooty and I tagged along. When  I reached home I found a note from mom saying she would be back in the evening. I sat with contempt on the veranda. Now next to my house, lived a mad dog. He by bad luck saw me and now I could sense real danger. Luck seemed strange to me now but how could I escape from the jaws of this monster bow wow! I took refuge in the bushes of a tree and as a gift from mother nature, a bee stung me on my head and a thorn pricked me on my finger. I started to curse everything around me and then I wanted to pee. I peed from top of a tree and felt betrayed by my efforts to remain normal. Now I saw mom return but trying to run past the tree I fell and ended with swells. On entering my room I found it was in a mess thanks to my younger sis Laila now I moved around the room feeling mad to spank her hard. Mom controlled me and send me to take hot water bath and when I settled to watch tv got a call from Vinay saying I had failed in my first semester. All hell broke loose and I blew my fuse. I cried till I got red eyes but seconds later Vinay said he had been mistaken and I had come seventh in grades. Now it started changing shades. This news was a melody ringer after the spate of ugly happenings in the day and I smiled being happy and gay. Mom came and loved me saying no two days are alike in this world. One should not back off seeing trying times. At such times one should muster more energy and fight back to brightly shine. Never should one forget the beauty of this life which rhymes with man and makes him become a better one. So the disaster day ended anyhow and I had to say that I learnt a lesson from it to be strong, patient and composed in such moments only to find joy returning back. And then we would see everything take the right course and direction in life. After all life could not afford to be that bad if it could not be that nice too.
