Life is a series of incidents. Some surprise you while some are predictable. Many times these incidents
leave you amazed at the power of the universe.
Rashi, a young married woman moved to a new city with her husband Rakesh, a loving man who would
do anything for his family and her small daughter, who was too young to go to school. Moving to a new
city meant adapting to new routines and she was slowly getting used to it but she missed her family and
friends and her old life. She missed working. She has lovely memories of her students and school. She
loved her life and her family but life wasn’t as satisfying.
She had spoken to her parents and siblings to elevate homesickness but she couldn’t talk to them
about this feeling. She didn’t want to seem ungrateful for her many blessings. She just wished that she
had friends close by, even a single friend to spend time with and who would understand her feelings.
This longing grew as Holi approached. Celebrating the festival with just her husband and daughter would
be great but it wouldn’t have the same Masti just the years before when they were surrounded by
friends and family.
Thankfully the universe was hard at work and one day while whiling away her time on social media sites,
she noticed a friend had moved to the same city.
Raman was a childhood friend and neighbor with whom she grew up. They had lost touch due to family
fights. She contacted him through the site and invited him over for Holi fun and lunch. Thankfully, he too
was looking for a familiar face amongst the sea of strangers and agreed to let bygones be bygones and
accepted her invitation.
Holi in a foreign land became a happy time. Raman and Rakesh got along very well and she was happy to
have a friend.
Raman was also overjoyed to have friends in this new place. His status said felt at home with Rashi
Rakesh……I couldn’t have asked for more.
Rashi’s desire for a friend may have been stronger than Ramans but they both enjoyed having a friend to
share and cherish.
Life is bountiful and the universe giving. It waits to create a series of incidents to give your deepest
desires. So, look inside and decide what you really want. I am sure it will you will achieve it.
