2 Accidents in 10 days...

I have always believed in destiny and fate. But never thought I would have to cite examples from my own life in order to illustrate the huge role played in our life by these "saintly devils". Before I begin my tales let me tell you the extent of my belief in destiny. I think that everything that you do and will do is pre-decided at some place. So, it was decided that I will go to IITB, that I will end up in Abhu Dabhi and that I will have some wonderful people as my very good friends. Also it was decided that I will have these really scary accidents but nothing will happen to me.

The first happened when I was on my way to Nainital with Swapnil. We were in a volvo and it was raining cats and dogs. Somewhere in the middle of the night the air conditioning stopped working and I had a feeling that the trip was doomed. Then as if to prove me right, a tree fell in front of the bus while it was going at about 90kmph. The (in)experienced driver swerved sharply and ended up in putting the rear wheels of the bus off the road into wet mud. the front wheels were barely touching the road surface at that moment. All the windows were misted so we had no idea about the vulnerable position of our bus and were at peace. All that changed once we got down in pouring rain and saw it with our eyes. Ditching the bus and thanking our fate, we got another bus and reached Nainital.

I had just about forgotten the volvo incident when I got reminded again about the enormous power of fate. I went to Gurgaon to meet Ramdas who works there and we had planned to enjoy at one of the thousands of malls there. But it was not to be. Just as we stepped out of his apartment and went a 100m, my six year old kinetic Nova slipped on an empty road and sent both of us flying. Luckily we got the most minor of injuries and only the rear view mirrors of the scooter were broken. Ramdas stated the obvious to me when he said "Imagine what would have happened if we were on a main road with traffic..."

A few days ago someone told me that Libra people are very lucky and they need not go to any astrologer to find out about their life and future. These incidents have reinforced my belief into fate and destiny. I wonder if some of you have had some similar experienced and agree/disagree with some of my views. You would wonder why I am writing a blog about all this. That's because I take it positively and treat it like getting some very costly thing at very little price.

No sweetheart..you DO NOT BLAME DESTINY, for your managing to scrape out, maybe. The "accidents" happened out of your innate foolishness. Which doctor prescribed you to go to Nainital during the rainy season? As for today's misadventure, kudos to your shoddy driving. Its downright dumb to say that what has to happen will happen so why take precautions or be responsible (Will probably continue the rest of the lecture offline)

Little discomfort or out of the ordinary should not be allowed to force or change our thinking. Not preaching, but you may as well continue not believing in destiny if you didn't earlier. :)

@ aniket: do u mean to say that only if a person gets paralised or dies, should one start believing in destiny? that's the whole point u see, u never remember fate when something good happens.

@shruti: u just need an occasion to give me lectures. It was not my fault it was my destiny. and FYI ramdas was driving, I am a pretty damn good driver, rem ur own delhi trip :D
