Little things..

The more i grow old :( the more i learn about life.
sometimes some small things can be so nice...i just experienced two such things in the last two days.
incident 1:i am in a lift with some other ppl in my office...there was this guy..who is some senior manager in some team in our office..we were wearing the same tshirt that day(which i din't notice).I dont know him personally as well..but then suddenly he said to me.. 'hey its the same ' pointing at the tshirt...and then left saying 'cya'
..that was really refreshing.. such a friendly comment really makes me feel at home :)
[pls let me know if u think i am strange..i will take that as a compliment :) ]

incident 2: i am in a super market kind of a shop..a family is buying a few things near the cash counter..a married lady with her daughter,her father and mother..they were speaking in Bengali with each other and din't know that i was also a Bengali..
suddenly, i was in a feel-good mood..and asked that person(the lady's father) 'r u from Kolkata?' ( in Bengali ) He said 'Yes ,,and u?'. I nodded.
I could see the sheer joy of finding someone from his own city on that old man's face.
I think they liked this small hi-hello incident.
I liked it too :)

Its good that these little things are still refreshing at least to you. Yes this is right that not all of us even remember these in our daily life, but to my opinion the more we grow up the more we get the power to consume everything, both the joys and the miseries. So after a few years its more likely that we won't enjoy such events either because we come across these more frequently or because we grew up (another way to say became harder to get affected).
But anyway, I still feel these the same way you do. So again from my side this is not strange behavior.

Coming across any Bengali is far from a matter of surprize for me given the abundance of bengalis around in my place. But the incident in the lift depicted is thoroughly rejuvinating :) :)
