Previous night my friend (Akshita) fell off the stairs bringing in pain for herself and uncertainty for us. However today was much different than what we had expected. It was indeed a day of ‘Jugaadu adventure’.
I would have never imagined myself lifting a girl down the hills and across beaches. But that happened today. Same is the case with using boats as a means of transport and cartons as a base to slide on.
I was of the belief that Day 2 was a ‘bad’ day and hence expected the whole trip to follow in such a way. But now, looking back, the ‘bad’ day that was expected to follow ended up being a day of fun packed adventure which we would have missed if not for the ‘great fall’.
Life is so much similar. We can easily sit back, cry and crib over our past and worry about the uncertainties of tomorrow. But in the process we lose out on our lovely present. If perception changes, things will change. Innovation, whether frugal or not, when applied over the difficulties faced in life, will ultimately lead to finding an alternative. But it will not happen unless we stop clinging on to our past.
Every day is a new day. Every second is a new life. Things will be under our own control, if we choose to be here and now… and then all will end well!
My Jugaadu Adventure are a series of posts from my travel to Bengaluru, Gokarna and Mangaluru which took place between 23/12/2016 and 29/12/2016
