Yesterday only, my mother was sitting at the threshold of our house making seviyan from the dough. A man came to her and asked if she has seen any old lady here? My mother replied in negative. He was dressed in grey pants and shirt. He looked tensed and told my mother that the lady didn’t give him the fare. He was an autorickshaw driver and that lady asked him for waiting while she went away to arrange for the change. It was already about half an hour and she hadn’t come yet. What kind of humans are they! These people work all day long in the scorching heat for the sake of money. How can some people run away by taking the money they deserve. Heartless are they. The man cursed her.
The man stood for around five minutes while talking to my mother and then he left.
Few minutes had passed since he gone and an old lady wearing a saree came. Her hairs were greyish and she walked slowly, shifting more of her weight to one side. She was looking for someone. My mother told her that the driver (if whom she is looking for) just left after waiting for her. She looked dejected seeing the money in her hand!!
Now, this whole thing made me think that if our actions are really the proof of our intentions or not. There can be care behind a brutal deed and vice versa. But then, our actions are inspired by the intentions. And still they can be misleading about the same. Argh!! What do you see first, intention behind the action or the action that people do to mean their intentions!?
