22nd July, 2008.
Blood spluttered all around.The cloth used to wipe it is completely soiled.Everyone is wondering what the hell just happenend! How could the world turn so quickly; in just a minute.
Just a minute back we were soaking up the weather, singing songs and generally having a good time.And now, all i can see is blood.
A drastic turn of events brought up this picture in front of our eyes.The four of us were on our way back home after a 2 day trip out of town.At the time of the fateful accident, i was on the driver's seat, my brother next to me and my parents on the back seat.
Just then destiny decided to twist a few strings and change the scene.A truck decided to change lanes, out of the blue, and wreck havoc all around.Like a chain, cars bumped into each other.One of the cars was ours.
It took me a few moments to realize what just happened and the realization came when i saw my father holding his forehead to stop the oozing blood.
What hit me instantly was guilt as i was on the driver's seat.I was torn between it and deciding what to do next and it happened all too sudden.
We were right in the middle of a highway with no human settlement in sight.We called up the highway helpline numbers but they hung up after hearing there has been an accident on the highway.
A man who with his family was in the series of cars affected by the accident came as our guiding angel.He said he knew the way to a small village a few kilometers away and that he would guide us there to find a doctor.
We found one on reaching the village.my dad was bandaged but fine.
Later when i was replaying the scene in my head it made me wonder is this what destiny and karma is? Destiny and karma got us in the situation and got us out by giving a hope by sending angel disguised as human.
I don't believe in idol worship.I believe in a supreme power but i don't name him or give him a form.My first reaction, after seeing my loved one going through so much pain, was to disregard my belief in the any power.My father of all people tried to make me believe again.
My belief and i are still scarred.And my guilt still existent.
