Unexpected Vs Expected

One of the Mom’s mandir friends, she was all excited. Her son’s marriage was fixed. She went to Surat to invite her relatives for marriage.         
And the same day, her husband, got a heart attack while walking on the road. Dead on the spot!!
I can not even imagine what would be state of the house now. Everyone would have been excited, and now, in a moment, it all doesn’t matter anymore. It’s like a sudden eclipse.

It would be so difficult to digest!

Just makes me wonder, if things happen unexpectedly would that wound hurt more?

Sometimes, when you know something is going to happen, the mind would keep going into future. Will keep showing you the flash of the future. After seeing that, the mind will vehemently deny that image. It would tell you it’s impossible. It’s not going to happen at all. Something miraculous will happen and the expected would be avoided. Surely, something will happen. And yet at the back of your mind you know that this is exactly what is going to happen. That repeated image doesn’t stop the blow, nor does it make the wound any less hurtful or any smaller. But some how because u know it is going to happen u r prepared for that wound. Somehow it heals a little faster.
Or does it really? Probably not. Cause you have faced the pain even before u got that wound. And probably due to that the reduction in the healing time later.

So what is preferred? Expected wound or the unexpected one?
Need to say Thank god to life that it doesn’t give a choice. Jo hona hai so to hona hai. But choosing in these two ways would be impossible!

When there is something that happens expectedly, not only u will be prepared but somewhere you will try to live all the remaining moments fully. However, you have to bear the pain of feeling the pain even before the wound. That’s tough.
And something happening unexpectedly, things suddenly change and it’s a big blow. But u don’t have to go through all the pain, and feeling guilty of seeing the future all the time when u don’t want to see it.

Strangely, in the today’s world shouldn’t we be really always be prepared for the unexpected. I guess the simple solution is just live all the moments to the fullest!
Probably, the toughest task to perform by breaking out the monotonous routine.
Well but deserves a chance for sure!


One interesting scene in Harry Potter: Prisoner or Azkaban.

I am a complete fan of this series. I actually read the third one first. i.e. the Prisoner of Azkaban. That too just to check what is all hype about Harry Potter thing. And then after this book ended up, started reading all earlier parts voraciously. And kept waiting for newer ones, picked it up in first week of release and finished it in next. Amazing imagination!! Hat’s of to J K Rowling.

Well that was a tad out of the topic. Back to the topic, Miracle!

In this book Prisoner of Azkaban there is one scene. I am not sure how to explain this complicated scene to non Harry guys. Let me try.

There Harry and his uncle are in a very big danger near a lake. The Dementors (let’s just say villains) would kill them in a minute. Someone from the other shore of the lake creates some magical animal and they get saved. And Harry gets to see a glimpse of his savoir. He is looking like Harry. Harry thinks that savior was his Father. His father, who is dead. Harry thinks somehow he has came back to save him.

And just before that magical animal was cast, on the other shore of the lake Harry is waiting. (Yes that’s correct, Harry is waiting. He has a time turner, so he has turned the time after the lake incident, and has came back on other side of the shore and now at two places! J I tell you if you like imagination you should read this series) He is waiting, with batted breath. He is going to see is father. Anytime now… Now… any time now! He is waiting, no one comes.
In some small fraction of second, he just comes out from behind the tree he was hiding, and casts the spell erupting a magical animal.
In that fraction of the second he has realized that, when he was waiting someone to save him, when he thought he saw image of his father, it was HE HIMSELF!

Miraculous isn’t it!

Ha, I know this can not happen in real world. Oops I mean with us Muggles (Non magical people) :D

But the point is things would start falling in place when we will come to that point of realization like Harry, That ONLY You could save yourself and not anyone else.
