New beginning of a dead end!

Yesterday, I needed a guy to work at my site urgently, like it was really really urgent for me to have one more guy before the next day's morning otherwise I would have faced a great loss for no good. This one guy who already works with me already had a guy in his contact who was looking for some work lately. So I told my guy to come with me to the city later in the evening and introduce me to him.

Yesterday, I needed a guy to work at my site urgently, like it was really really urgent for me to have one more guy before the next day’s morning otherwise I would have faced a great loss for no good. This one guy who already works with me already had a guy in his contact who was looking for some work lately. So I told my guy to come with me to the city later in the evening and introduce me to him.

Later in the evening at around 6:30PM we reached this guy’s location and I met him for a maximum of 2 minutes. I asked him his name and all and that was all about it. I told him- ‘Pack a bag and be ready in 2 hours, I’ll bring the car and pick you up by 8:30pm sharp!’ And I left his locality that very moment itself.

Now, this guy lives towards the less privileged side of the city. That side of the city is mostly known for rowdies and druggists.. But I needed a guy urgently so I did not let anything bother me.
Later at around 8:30pm I left my motorcycle and brought the car to pick him up along with his baggage.
Here’s the breathtaking moment-
At around 8:30PM when I took the car deep inside their locality… Almost everyone started looking at me.. Because honestly, they aren’t too used to seeing men like me in vehicles like that at that time of the night in their locality. I parked and this guy came out within a minute.. All packed and ready.. And he sat in the rear seat… What was shocking to me was that almost 20 kids surrounded my car and started waving him goodbye!
Very soon another guy came closer to the windshield and did his Namaste to me and told me that If I have some other work coming up soon then he is also ready to come.. I smiled happily and said ‘sure’. Then his mom came up and I told her where I was taking him and stuff and told her not to worry.. She was scared a bit, to be honest. A very polite lady!
Throughout this time I did not step out of the car. I greeted them and spoke with them and everything from inside only. Finally when the entire ‘bye bye’ ceremony was over and I started moving the car ahead. Those kids ran breathlessly and screamed- Bye bye, Jonesh! Bye bye, Jonesh! They ran behind the car until I reached a speed that they couldn’t chase anymore.
I was smiling, looking at this guy’s popularity in his location and I couldn’t stop myself from saying – Jonesh, you are quite popular among your folks.. Hmm..!
To this he gave the best reply-
I dropped out of college and have been in and out of bad stuff.. I got sick of this popularity and that is why I was looking for some work far away..
I chuckled and told him- Welcome on-board, boy!
?
We crossed their locality and then crossed the city lime lights and entered the dark highway and vanished.. Far far away..
Through out the time while I was driving I was only thinking that a guy who wants to run away has finally ended up in hands of a guy who once ran away from himself 🙂
This will be fun..

P.S.- Who am I?

I’m a medical student who ran away and became an engineer and then ran away from himself once more and is now busy going entrepreneurial shit crazy now ?

    This is epic and at the same time related to what is happening nowadays. We tend to forget what we worked hard for a long time and in the end we realize that it’s not our passion. But we should never regret anything in your life. Just be thankful you have that life that God gave us. And take care of it.

    It’s quite a mystyrious yet inspiring anecdote. The story reminds me how I searched for what I really want and how I had hard time working on it. The story tells a lot in a little. I realized that everyone goes through self search, and when you find out what you really want and you finally get to do it, you should be forever greatful because many people don’t like what they are and what they do. Only the brave ones will try to leave their comfort zones, only the brave ones will do everything to leave the poverty they suffer from, only the brave one will risk leaving their hometown and loved ones just to see how big the world is and there are so many opportunity that awaits, only the brave ones will starve for a change and give up their vices. But in this story, it shows that sometimes we need somebody to convince us that we made the right choice and they will be ther for us if we ever need them. The main lesson here, I think is that brave people make up another brave person. If you really have been brave enough to know who you want to be, you will also help and inspire others discover who they want to be.
