Morning started a bit hurried for me. Had forgot to put alarm & had slept late in night . So got up late . Rushed to get ready . Somehow managed to do that in time. Cab also booked . Was showing 10 mins waiting which was fine considering I was getting time to have breakfast .
There was traffic & vehicle finally arrived after 35 minutes . The moment I opened the door of vehicle the driver greeted me apologised for delay & expressed his concern that I might have got late. This was a welcome surprise . I was little frustrated & worried . But then it just changed .
The time till I reached my office was a different journey today inspite of traffic on the way .
He enquired about why a particular building I stay in is named that . Then he shared his experience of taking a customer to a particular bungalow & why it was named so.
Then he shared that he started ola/Uber two months back & that his mother also prefers Ola / Uber . The reason why he thinks people / prefer this mode.
He had views on almost everything you could imagine . Today’s generation, we adopting western culture & western culture adopting our things . The politics & the progress & bottlenecks .
I spent 1.5 hours on a trip which normally takes 45 mins. But it was one such day where I was not complaining because of this amazing experience .
These are some of the rare people who are themselves positive & engaging and spread this to people around them .
