I compare life to a highway……………
The drive can be fantablous, with a smooth road. It’s a pleasure riding here. This very smooth road turns into a drivers nightmare. Abrupt speedbreakers, landslides, potholes are the other side of that once smooth road.
Driving just makes you aware of things around you. You pass through villages, meet new people, help a hitchhiker to the next town (trusting that he won’t rob you ). The ides basically fun.
Then suddenly at this one tiny village what was once a highway, tapers into a crossroad!!!! What crossroad on a highway? Trust me that’s the last thing that you want to encounter. I am sure those travelling on the Mumbai Goa road must have faced this situ (I was asleep behind the wheel, when I faced this. When I did realize it was the wrong route, I had drove a good 10 KM into the village. Lol) sometime.
Life too is something like that. Your faced with crossroads at different stages. But then again we ought to remember that there is what I call the reverse gear in the car. Retrace to where you feel you got lost, and traverse the path that you feel is right, and never on the road that led you to that dreaded crossroad.
