“When you are walking on the road, you can walk consciously. That’s what Buddha says one should do. You are alert, deep down you are aware that you are walking. You are conscious of each movement. You are conscious of the birds singing in the trees, the early morning sun coming through the trees, the rays touching you, the warmth, the fresh air, the fragrance of newly opening flowers.”
So when you are conscious, you can do better Observation. Before some time I have seen Vantage Point in which president left hotel, reach on stage, someone killed him. They show whole sequence by view of different persons. Similarly observed situation should be observed differently by different observer. So here I am presenting one more observation from my eye of beholdJ.
Characters: Myself, 1 Couple (age around 28-30)
Venue: Sai Chawk, Pashan, Pune
Since last 2 months; I wake up at 6:45 and start my journey from room to office at 8.00 AM. My first stop after leaving the room is “Sai Chawk”. Here I enjoy Idli – Sambhar and Tea at Sai Tea Junction (Right side of Sai Tea Junction is pick-up point for lots of IT companies.). So these 10 minutes of my break gives me lots opportunity to observe people, observer nature and lots more.
Date: 6h April, 2010 –
First time I have seen that couple, very cute couple* (Lets name them Vipul and Vidhya for better resolution) on 6th April, 2010. There is nothing extra-ordinary in their behavior. Vipul (in sleepy mood, without shave and in night dress) was riding Honda Activa and Vidhya (with fresh face and in red Punjabi dress) was seated on back-seat.
They were coming from left side of Sai Tea junction. Vidhya was telling her husband to drop her at same side corner. Vipul replied her, “Why? Are you feeling shame because of my unshaved face or because I m in night dress?” She replied with smile, “No dear… Okay drops me at right side” and Vipul dropped her at right side of Sai Tea junction. In some minutes, her bus came to the pick-up point and she stepped-up into the bus.
Date: 7th April, 2010 – In above observation, there is nothing special. It is same as routine life but I have seen same couple on very next day and same time but little bit on different position and what I saw is exactly opposite to previous observation. So I am writing about this observed sequence. This time Vidhya (of course with fresh face and in blue Punjabi dress) was riding Honda Activa and Vipul (in better condition than yesterday, shaved face and in formal wears) was seated on back-seat.
They were coming from same side (left side of Sai Tea Junction). Vipul told his wife to stop Activa on left side corner. Here Vidhya asked him, “Why?” He replied, “Vidhya, You will be late” (I didn’t understand, How she can be late in 1 minute???) and Vidhya dropped him at left side of Sai Tea Junction (with same smiling face and without any argument) and turned back. Vipul walked to right side Sai Tea Junction and picked-up his bus.
*Observed person names (Vipul and Vidhya) are completely fictitious and have no relationship with any real person or his/her lifestyle.
