Our goals will happen one day
Yesterday evening I went to see my friend Rahul, 6 pm at his home, but he was not there. His house was locked. I called on his mobile, it was switched off. Then I went to beach where we use to sit every evening, I was expecting Rahul to come there .but it turns 10 pm night, then I slowly started to walk towards my home. My mind was fully filled with his (Rahul) thoughts, because we will be together every day. He (Rahul) was trying for a job in IT field for past 4 years, I too never thought about my job. My mom always used to tell us both to try to get any job initially and then try for aimed jobs , but we never took that to our mind. Rahul’s father was a tax consultant in government organization in retiring stage; he was very much worried about his son, because Rahul lost his mom when he was in childhood so his father strained a lot to bring him to that stage.
We did graduation, then what’s lacking with us in getting a job. I was asking this question to myself, by thinking all these , I reached my home , my mother was waiting outside for me , by seeing her eyes, I noticed she was waiting for a long time to tell me something , I went near and asked her , have you finished your dinner . She did not care about the question what I asked her, she interrupted by putting another question immediately, have you seen Rahul? I said no. then I asked what happened? Did he come here? She (my mother) replied me – No, but his (Rahul) father passed away. I was shocked by hearing this. Immediately I started running to his (Rahul) house. Rahul’s neighbors were there but I was not able to find Rahul in his house, I asked one person there how it happened, he said - in his office afternoon his son came there, they were speaking outside of the office, after half-an-hour talk Rahul left the place , he came inside then after an hour in cafeteria he fell down by touching his chest , we carried him , but we found that he left us . We searched for his son, but we could not able to find him. I was totally confused by hearing this. I sat down there, seeing Rahul’s father. After 10 minutes I came out and I started calling all other friends to check about Rahul, but nobody has seen him. Later on , my mother came there and we went inside. Everybody is asking to me about Rahul, because we used to roam together so I left the place, my mind is scolding him, but my eyes were searching for Rahul all the streets. I saw one person approaching towards the street, I found that it’s Rahul, I went near him – he asked me when you came here but i am not in position to answer, I again questioned him where u went we all are searching for you since 6 pm. he asked again why? , I didn’t say anything , he found that people were standing outside his house , he asked me what happened , I told about his father , he ran inside , I followed him . He was totally out of his mind by seeing his father in that view; his tears wet his father’s blanket. I took him up and moved out. In crying eyes he said , I made a mistake, and then he described what conversation he had between him and his father today afternoon at his office. His father’s friend is offering a job for him (Rahul) and his father told him to join that company. But he (Rahul) refused. (His father doesn’t want to break his son’s dream, he doesn’t want to see his son ideal and his interest is to see Rahul employed before his retirement.)
Then the people from Rahul father’s family called us to start the arrangement for funeral. After the funeral, we returned back, my mother told me to stay with Rahul tonight. I to felt the same. Rahul was thinking about his father the whole night. I was thinking about our future, “we were engineering graduates but still we are not in a position to get a job by our own. some companies approached us but we neglected the offers because those jobs are not in our mind, but neighbors and friends used to tell us what my mom use to tell me “Initially sit in job on temporary base and then try for your goal”, we searched for jobs in our own interested area but it did not work . finally it made us to think. Because our parents are more worried by thinking what their kids are going to do in this unemployed situation, whether they can survive without parent support – these type of stressed thoughts lead our parents to danger (like what happened to Rahul’s father). By thinking all these I also slept.
We woke up this morning with glorious mind that we should do something for us, I know for Rahul it will take some time to come out from this situation. I will try to help him to come out from his situation and change his mind to normal anyway life should go on. Due to this incident I got a clear picture in my mind that we should not waste our precious time by waiting idle for our goals to happen, we shall sacrifice little for our parents who worry every day for us, making them satisfied & give them confidence that we are able to stand on our own legs. Our goals will happen one day; we will make it happen one day.
