Lucky or unlucky?

Do I believe in Luck?? Hmm..lets see

Amma :- wow look at K, she has scored centum in 4 subjects !!
Me:- She worked really very hard! 🙂

Friend:- You know J missed medical college seat by just 0.5 mark, Thats so sad 😦
Me:- She worked very hard. But I think sometimes its just bad luck! 😦

In my school days, my idea about luck was very simple. Success = Hardwork, Failure = bad Luck. I would argue with my mom if she praised someone as lucky. I would give her thousand reasons like hope, hardwork,perseverance, good heart etc etc but would never agree that it is just plain good luck!At the same time, I found it cruel to tell someone that he/she didnot succeed because he/she didnot work hard. I used luck’s name to console people.

In college and after college I started changing my mind. I started to believe that success needs some good luck too. Some incidents in office made me believe in luck. But still I trust more in hardwork than luck.

Yesterday I was coming back to home, got down from bus walked towards home.On the way I saw an old lady selling roasted corn.I walked past her and then turned back and bought one from her. When I gave her the money she smiled and told me that I am the first one to buy corn from her today.What does it mean? Her business today depends on my luck isn’t it? I was restless for sometime thinking about her .Will she have a good business today ? Will she blame me if it doesnot go well?  Will she not give me corn next time I ask?. Anyway after sometime I forgot the whole thing and got busy with eating.This is not the first time. I have faced this before when buying flowers from small shops or purchasing goods from small small shops and even some auto wallas have asked for 5 rs more giving this as reason. And I have paid them without any argument!! I smile at them but at the end I get confused and scared. These are the times I totally believe in luck.

So the result is Sometimes Yes!! 🙂

Ho! Ho! Ho! Smiley Merry Christmas my dear friends !! Smiley May this season be filled with Love, Joy and loads of Plum cakes !!! Smiley
