What's Behind?

What is Behind?...... Have you ever thought of this any time. Every one of us is busy with their own life. We hardly have time to think about others. Everyday while going to office many things are happening around us. We see many people. some of them are happy, some are angry and some are sad. What is Behind them? One day when I spotted some incidents, I came to know that behind every Sadness there is Happiness. Behind every Happiness there lies Hard work. Behind every Hard work there is a Hope. Behind every Hope there is Love. Behind every Love there is Pain. Behind every Pain there lies Hunger. Behind every Hunger we find one answer and that is Life.

One day I started walking to office and on my way I saw a dog walking along the road. She is so lean that she cannot walk steadily. Her face is looking sad and tears are rolling down from her eyes. she is searching for food and failed to succeed. She was returning home sad as she cannot feed her children. On the flip side her six cute babies are waiting for their mother. They are very happy that their mother came home and they can get milk to drink. Hence behind the sadness of that dog there lies Happiness of puppies.

When I was sitting at the bus stop waiting for a bus, I observed many people going by cars with lumps of clothes and loads of gifts along with them. It was Christmas time and there was heavy traffic. Amidst this rush, a man is going happily on a bicycle and he holds a small cover which contains a beautiful sari. This is to gift his wife. He looks like a labor working in some construction company as a daily wager. His face is glowing with happiness. But behind this Happiness there is Hard work. He worked day and night to earn money. At times he struggled with sleep less nights in order to save some extra money. All this is to gift a good sari to his wife who is not having proper clothes to wear. Some days he even skipped his meal to save some more money and hence behind this Happiness there lies Hard work.

Few moments later, my bus came and I boarded the bus. I chose a window seat opposite to the exit door. Two places in front to me, in a corner, I found an old man who is wearing a full sleev kakhi shirt and Dhoti. The color of the dress is light brown by which we can resemble the person as Farmer. He was praying to God by joining his hands and holding them upon the head. He was praying that this year, at least he should get some profit from his crop. Every year he works hard to grow the crops but due to climatic changes his crop gets damaged. He is praying that this year there should not be any negative impact from climate on his crop. He worked hard in the Farm day and night under burning sun which sheds lot of heat and in the dark night which gives cool breeze that make whiskers on the skin stand erect. Whole night will be a sleep less night for him in order to protect the crop. He works hard to plough the field, water it and grow the crop. Behind this Hard work, there is a Hope. A Hope that he can get profit at least this year in spite of getting loss every year. We are living as a result of that Hope. If there is no such Hope, there is no Farmer and no food for us. hence, behind every Hard work there is Hope.

I got down from bus and started walking to the nearest junction. On my way there is a college. Every student is rushing into the college as the class commence within 10 minutes. I spotted a student waiting for someone at the entrance. He is a bit nervous. Few of his friends approached him and said " It's a waste of time to wait for her. We will be happy if you come along with us now". There is no response from him and his friends went inside leaving him behind. He has been waiting for a girl whom he loved a lot. Few minutes later, the girl came and he saw her until she went out of his sight. He is waiting for her daily hoping that she might talk to him one day. He Hopes that she might accept him and love him. Behind this Hope there is Love. The love for her never dies as such his Hope. His love gives him the Hope to wait for her and yes, behind every Hope there lies Love.

I took an auto and stopped at a park near me to have some fresh air. I walked two rounds and sat in the chair near the big banyan tree. Many birds stay in the tree making nests. They make different sounds which are pleasant to ears. If we sit here with these birds under the tree, we will surely fall in love with nature. For 5 min I have been observing a bird carrying some sticks and moving towards the tree and there are 4 babies standing on one of the branch. It seems they are home less and her mother is building nest. So beautiful to see it. But the bird is not flying steadily. It is falling down and flying again. One of its wing is broken.The bird is struggling from pain. It is so painful to fly but the bird is doing this for her children. This is the Love from mother that no one can replace. Behind this Love there is Pain. A Pain from broken wing. Yesterday there was heavy rain and the bird's house is thrown away by large winds. In order to save her children, the bird hurt herself. But if there is no house her children will be homeless. Keeping this in mind it is struggling to build house in such a pain. Hence behind every Love there is Pain.

There is a main junction which is about 500 meters from my house. One of it's roads connect to my house. Many vehicles moves crossing that junction as main places of the city are connected to this junction. I stopped to cross the road. While I was waiting, I observed a woman on the opposite road. she was carrying a baby with her. she is going to each and every vehicle and asking for some money. She is begging in order to feed her child. No one is responding as everyone is busy with their thoughts and works. Some even pushed her a side. It was so painful that no one is responding even on seeing the baby crying. she suffered all the pain and begging the whole day. Behind this Pain there is Hunger. The child is crying because of Hunger. How can a mother leave her child suffering from Hunger. To buy some food to the child, she was doing this and suffering all the Pain and hence behind every Pain we can find Hunger.

I reached home and am taking my shoes off. Mean while my mother came and said "Go and wash your hands. I prepared Dinner for you. You might be so Hungry". I may be feeling hungry but behind this Hunger there is a Life. The Life which I saw on my way from morning till now. The Life which is a mix of all the feelings. Many of us make wrong decisions and face consequences. Starting from dog and ending with the woman, every character has different lives. One which is visible to us and another which can be inferred from behind the visible one. Don't come to any decision on seeing anything from one side. Think of what may be the reason behind.
