The CURIOS blog

I am looking for writing my first blog. I am planning since last few months but did not able to come in an any idea. Some told me, write about what you are passionate for, some told me, write something what people enjoy to read. some told me, write something informative. Some told me, Internet is huge, there is google ,you know the use of ctrl C and ctrl V then what’s the problem, go ahead, Dude. Well, every suggestion is good and worthy except the last one which is, as expected, made by my dear friends.

A shining morning, temperament of sun was very high, I guess, around 42…I leave my home for my work place, as usual, with my disturbed facial expression. I reached to metro station and waiting for my train to come. I was usually choose second car of the train which is next to first car reserved for ladies, but after certain time, I realized that no miracle is gonna happen there in the full of rush car. So, I decided to move my eyes and mind from there and go for the last car of the train.

I used to see an Old man, nearly about 65, stand tall and straight on the same last compartment and on the same time matching with my time, almost daily. After few days, we started giving response to each other by smiling like smiley, whenever our eyes encountered with each other.
One day, fortunately, I got a seat and that old person is sitting next to me.
“Hello”, he said. “hello sir”, I replied gently.
What’s your problem…girl???? , he chuckled.
No sir. I said
 Then?? , he said.
Nothing. I am okay. I said.
okay.. sorry, may be my observation went wrong . He said,
Not more than 2 minutes silence between us…
I said while staring on his eyes.
So many..Direction is the major one. I said in a rough voice.
Why you need this??
I have to establish my own enterprise but I am not able to find the starting point or so called execution point.
He said, my father was running a restaurant. He is a Waiter in his early days. He was interested in the food and its recipe he served, and wondered why they were priced so high. During his spare time he went about finding how much the material per dish was worth. He learned what customer wants and demands when they come to restaurant. He thought about methods to low down the prices. In short, he learned all he could about the business from his position.
It is not a matter of weeks. It covered some months or years, but when the opportunity to go into the business arrived for him, he was ready. His ideas on low cost didn’t work but make him a success. He was, then, started hiring peoples and these people would have the same opportunity he had, if they would just have the same CURIOSITY.
                                               I have been seriously listening to him. He continues… Solving problem is not a difficult task. Finding problem is difficult. Once you know, what they are, you can solve it.
I think you find your problem. He said.
I didn’t get any words.
Sir, how could you know, I am disturbed or in any problem?? I asked, politely..
How many switches are there in a switch board of you room?? , He asked to me.
How many compartments/cars in a metro you are traveling?? He asked again, without giving me a chance to say something.
I started recollecting but didn’t get in the definite number.
He said, it doesn’t make any sense but it will increase your observation power and keeps your mind open. See the world with your mind not with your eyes.
I don’t know why, but, I started feeling more confident about myself. His destination reached after ten minutes of our conversation. We shook our hand. Sir, Its nice meeting you, I said. (This is the first time, I said this with the inner core of my heart).
He said, Its your life son, Make It Large. Yes, I will. I said. But not more than 90 ml and he laughs loudly.
My day passed out with full of energy. I came back to home, open my computer and I took hardly 45 minutes to complete my blog contents.
May be I found, what missing in me.
