I packed my stuff & was getting ready for the seminar in Mumbai. Earlier I was so happy that finally meeting was fixed with Mr Jadeja from Pearson Group & he was open for the discussion about the business contract extension with new terms also I got best deals on hotel booking & flight booking through The kangaroo travels. My happiness didn’t last long because of my short tempered nature. I often hurt people for no reason and for no fault of their own. Just like I today.
Monty was playing with his dog Tiger & accidently the dog jumped on my documents & it got ruined. Obviously, it was neither Monty’s fault nor tiger’s but I scolded Monty as I was little hyper at that time. This has become the usual trail, and somewhere I know that it's not right but I can’t help it, I think I need a break but am lacking the time. In everything, I have some goals and targets to achieve. After all, I am doing all this for his future only. He didn’t look at me whilst I was leaving. So I couldn’t make it whether he was angry or hurt, whatever it is I was responsible for his reaction. My wife tried to console him but he did not listen to her he just ran from there & we heard the bang of his bedroom door.
Swati came to the see my off & said, “you know, it wasn’t his fault right? You need to give some of your time to us as well. Every day he stays up for late so that he can at least see you and he was playing in your study so that he can be around you for some time. Please think about it.” I didn’t utter a word; I just nodded as I knew she was right. And also I didn’t have any words.
The meeting was successful but it didn’t bring any genuine smile on my saddened face. I was packing my stuff and suddenly a paper slipped through my clothes, it was a drawing of a plane with a message “Happy Journey.” The sudden wave of emotions passed through my chest. The human nature is mesmerizing, 1 simple gesture is enough to melt any tough ice-berg. That moment was life-changing for me, I packed my stuff hurriedly & rushed to the airport. The flight was delayed due to some weather problem. Each passing moment was making me anxious & restless. I wanted to see my baby boy. I wanted to hug him & suddenly an idea popped into my thick skull.
I took my phone out & opened the kangaroo travel’s app. I knew my next move. A tour plan. I didn’t have much time to look specifically at the details of a hotel, flight and all that stuff so I directly specified my budget & booked a Singapore tour for my family. I Called Swati immediately and told her everything about the tour and told her to keep it a surprise for Monty. The flight announced the final call for me.
It was the final call indeed…
