Impact of the place and the individual
People carry a shadow and impact of what they do, think or intend. This shadow moves ahead where ever they go and it affects their surrounding and also the place, where they live, depending upon the intensity and nature of their work.
I am narrating here my own experience, I passed through. I hope you also might have had sometimes such experience or feeling.
In those days I was new to the city I lived in, and used to go to the places or streets new to me to understand the nature of the city and people in general, out of curiosity.
One day, afternoon, I was passing through a busy street with small shops, both sides of the road and people living in small houses.
However, I was not feeling comfortable or natural from within while walking. It gave me a feeling of deadly silence and loneliness around.
In the mean time two huge bodied individuals in banyan and lungi came out from a house and started going ahead of me freely and comfortably talking to each other without paying any attention around. However, their appearance ran a shiver in me and I could not walk ahead.
I was not at all comfortable now and decided to confirm about what was there ahead in the street. I went to a shopkeeper and asked him about. He gave a deep look at me and said -
‘There is a slaughter – house ahead, where big animals are slaughtered.’
Now everything was clear before me. My inner signal had cautioned me strongly.
