I can’t be this….

August 11, 2010

I was away from blog for various reasons.. but today I just left everything and started writing. May be it shook me!

As usual, I was driving to office and as usual was cribbing about hell lot of traffic and rash driving! I just cant see people so indifferent towards other fellow beings!!  Anyways, I had to reach office on time.  Those who stay in bangalore and commute via Marathahalli will know.. what happens when the light goes green on the signal.

Light went green at that signal and I too rushed! Suddenly in front of my eyes, a motor biker hit a cat on the road and the cat jumped high to land on the middle of the road, screaming and struggling for life! I was just next… by the time, I realized what is happening.. I had crossed the spot! I was moving.. I could see the cat struggling for life and other cars kept on going over it….. !!!!  I did not stop! I did not stop!  I do not care that the person on bike who hit the cat did not stop.. I do not care that the person inside car who again ran over it, did not stop.. I do not care who did not stop..  but I hate myself today that I DID NOT STOP. I didnt help the dying cat.

I cant be this…..!! I can’t be this inhuman! I am sorry.  I could not think of anything else till now. I just left everything and started writing…  And promise myself that this was the last time.. I was so inhuman.  I can’t be this…! I am sorry.

    Lotz of hugs. I know it happens sometimes and the realization comes later.

    In such case, more important is the realisation, which did happen with you.

    this is a bad feeling I know…I’ve been there 😦 But circumstances pull you opposite to what you think you should’ve done !

    HUGS and keep it aside…no point in cribbing now…just relax..

    I agree with Chowlaji the fact that you have realized it is important and you spoke about the event on public blog is what many will not do so its Ok …next time you’ll stop and help …we know….

    Oh dear, it’s ok…don’t worry…as long as you realize it now, if this were to happen again, you will definitely act differently. Hugs.

    Was wondering about your absence.
    That was really a sad thing. It happens to many .Suddenly we are a loss while in situations like you have mentioned.

    Many people do not even realize but they enjoy the seen.

    The bottomline is that you realised and are toady a better person for this lesson. So thats when you should get over the incident and let it slowly imbibe itself in your system rather than make it a haunting memory.
