DAY 1: Work without my Car!



Before beginning with the post I would to like to mention that here the work is “SALES” so when I say work without a car… It means something genuinely uncomfortable!

I guess, I’ll start with how I m struck in this situation… well…. It all happened on a very pleasant day… the day I love the most ‘FRIDAY’…  A Friday afternoon.

As usual, I was driving my car… going for a meeting…. happily singing a song…. On a crowd less road… where I met an accident... It wasn’t just any simple hit it was kinda major…. A bikewala hit my car badly without seeing the indicator due to which he got injured and I ended up losing one door of my car and the other door was damaged…

Anyways, my primary concern was that guy who was bleeding…  As that was not the point to argue on whose fault it was… I took him to the hospital and dropped him back…. After that my concern was my car… It was a major loss so I decided to call up insurance guy to guide me how to go about it… He told me a long process which I decided to follow…

My Saturday went in searching for a workshop where I can give my car and get it repaired at earliest… as well as in fewer outflows of cash…. Finally, my search ended on a workshop in Vasant Kunj where I decided to give my car and the workshop guy ensured me its return in 4 days i.e., by Thursday most probably…

Phewww! Long story it was… Anyways, now I was bothered about my work… Being in sales it’s very difficult to go without a car… Sunday I was mostly sleeping and doing tp… By the end of the day I convinced myself that “It’s gonna be an adventure to be without a car… I’ll explore the city in public transport once again after 2 years… yayy!” :P

Though from inside I was saying “it won’t be that bad... after all people do live without a car”….

Ah… Started Monday… I luckily got lift till office with a colleague of mine who stays in South Delhi… Then comes the meetings part…. I was lucky as I had just one meeting today… that too I managed in metro…

After years, I travelled in Metro…. It was not really a bad experience… Honestly speaking… sometimes it’s required to come out of your comfort zone and work like mostly people do… Well, yes, I lack patience and I hate public transport but it’s all because I always had a choice to avoid it… today, I had no choice so I used it… It wasn’t actually my wish though… :P

I spent around 4 hrs in just one meeting due to this public transport thing… I am sure with car it’s just a matter of 2.5 hrs at max… Life can’t be same every time…

But… God, seriously yaa… Thank You so much for being there for me… Good and bad days do come but it’s all required at times… It only makes us versatile and strong…. And I am happy, Really… So don’t worry.. ;-)

Just take care of my people…. Love you… Muaah! :-))

So sorry about the accident... But you did the right thing of getting that guy to hospital.. KUDOS to that gesture...

Coming out of one's comfort zone is quite difficult but you did that... that shows your will to survive and stand to every situation...

nd God always stays with the people who believe in him.. No surprise that you are his one of the Favorites... :)

Take care

The good thing is that you're alright. Such incidents can become dangerous for car drivers too. Your car could have easily gone out of control and you could have got hurt. Of course that didn't happen and I'm glad that you're safe :)
Take care! :)
