How do we meet people? Is it by our choice or just a coincidence or fate? Maybe some of you might have the thinking, “who cares” ? We have actually met people in different places and situations. While travelling on a train or a bus or while standing in a long queue for example. And many other possible incidents. All of them are for that particular moment only. They will not be in our life forever.
But except for some special one. And this special one never comes often and can’t be found easily. Meeting them is like once in a blue moon. So when we meet a person, we need to make sense of it, try to sort out the reason behind meeting them, when there are millions of people around us. I do not feel it as a coincidence but there must be some good reason.
As my story goes, I have met lots of good people. Out of which quite few of them are only in touch now. I never imagine that one day I will meet them, whom I have never known and never seen before or never in mind have any idea of where they were? These important people were from my college and university, workplace, social media and many more. You might be thinking of meeting them all as normal. But why are some of them only, randomly selected from among the many uncountable numbers we have encountered with?
It is because they were already cast as important characters for our play of life. The life we are going to live with. At some point or other, these characters were to appear and they were waiting for their scene. We cannot complete a story in one go but instead we must follow it chapter by chapter. These special people were waiting for each chapter to begin in our life. Almost every happy or sad moment of our life will surely be related to one or more of these people.
One incident I can narrate, about meeting dozens of people in my life. It was actually from the very addictive and most wanted online Smartphone android game Clash of Clan. Warning, it is so addictive that we can’t quit, but as for me, I have. But it was almost similar with other social media networks. People from different places came together under a single roof of a team, termed as clan. All members played online through their respective Smartphones. They trained troops, attacked other clan’s villages, went to war and celebrated together after winning the war and gaining clan perk points. I was a member of a clan known as Manipur Nongsha. Still I am a member but inactive for the last few months. All the clan members decided to plan for a get together offline. We can’t be online all the time, you know that. What I want to express is that all of us got to know each other very well through the medium of a small application. We never imagined and thought that it was possible. But if we were really destined to meet with them, then any place or anytime is possible.
So I feel that it has already been written in the cards. With the movement of the sun and moon up there, down here these people will start to be introduced in our life. They will surely have an important role in our days to come. Either we can wait or we can find out, if we are very eager to know their roles in our life. For it we do not need to follow any unrelated process but it is a matter of correct and appropriate time.
