A Dog That Made Me Smile Today

A Dog That Made Me Smile Today

Today, I was having a lecture at 8:00 a.m. and therefore, I reached at University at around 7:24 a.m. While I was walking towards Business Block 14, I noticed a dog at the back side of the hospital, sitting in peace and enjoying a calmness of nature. For a second. I felt jealous of it but suddenly I said to myself, “Why be jealous, rather just sit down with it for a while.”

Hence, I sat there for around 1-2 minutes. I simply smiled as soon as I stood up from there.

Later, I decided to take selfie with it and clicked many pictures but could not get any satisfactory picture. While I was in that euphoria moment with it, I saw a person coming upstairs. He smiled at me and I smiled back, requesting him to take one picture of me with a dog.

As soon as I was about to stand up, he said, “Keep sitting, let me click some more images so that you can choose best out of them.”

I was really amazed to see his level of courtesy and asked his name. “Pavan”, he replied.
“Thank You, Pavan.”, I spoke and smiled again.

Few minutes later, when I continued my journey towards 14 Block, I started wondering, “What could be the reason of that dog for sitting so patiently?”

One side of my brain spoke, “It teaches us that sometimes, we must stop for a while in our busy life, to have some relaxation from all worries and tensions.” I smiled at its answer.

In contrast, other side of my brain, in its mocking behavior, replied, “Oh Please!! Look at the broader side of the situation. The direction, in which that dog was looking or should I say Staring for so long, is same as the one in which the Girls Hostel is situated.”
Listening to their debates, I simply Laughed Out Loud and spoke, ”Crazy Minds”

I hope that reading this experience made you smile as well.
