Three stories

1. The biggest festival Eid-ul-Azha is knocking on the door. People are hurrying to buy cattle. You could see hundreds of happy ‘cowboy’ on the streets. I think people enjoy this part of the eid very much. But there are some other anxieties that might happen. Today on the way to my home I saw a small crowd. I stopped there to see what happened. A bull was lying down on the ground motionlessly and the ‘cowboy’ was very disappointed with the situation. Normally during the eid season the cattle traders bring these cattle from different parts of the country and abroad. Sometime it takes weeks and the cattle starve most of the time.


2. It was my sister’s wedding anniversary and I was thinking to present them something. I am not in a position to give them an expensive present. Flowers came to my mind and I thought it would be great. But suddenly I got busy with some other job and forgot to buy them. Then I got a call from my sister and they offered me a dinner in a restaurant. I went there with bare hands. I was feeling little bad for not being able to present them at least some flowers. It was almost late night when we get back home and most of the shops were closed. But suddenly I saw the only one flowers shop of our area is still open. It made me feel very good. I bought a bunch of flowers and give it to my sister immediately. My nephew was very happy and he told me that he’ll present me such flowers when I’ll throw such a party…


3. Few minutes ago I got a message. This was a good time for getting the message for which I was expecting all through the day. I was on the rickshaw and I couldn’t able to see the message just after the message tone. I was hoping whole heartedly that it’ll be the desired message and I was taking time to see it. I came to my room, turned on the light, took a deep breath, unlock my mobile and then saw the message with a big expectation. It’s a silly slang from one of my friend! Everything turned into blank. I know this friend of mine never realized that his message could affect me so badly. My brain didn’t work for few minutes… then I realized I shouldn’t blame him. It’s my fault. I should be aware properly about what I can expect and what I can’t.
