Stand Fan

It was hot. It was humid. I was irritated. I was angry. Suddenly a woman came over and put a stand fan where the patients were waiting for their call from the doctor. As soon as the fan was switched on it started swinging from left to right. I relaxed feeling the air but soon the fan turned away to my locked-jaw chagrin.

A little boy, who was sitting next to me, kept shifting from left to right in accordance to the fan’s face. And I soon surmised he was the happiest and the least sweaty amongst all the visitors. For unlike him we all were only waiting for the fan to turn towards us.

Great...It is what I'm feeling just now... sitting in the college lounge with my girlfriend around two feet away...we had a trivial fight over something two days back and are just waiting for the other fan to turn and face me... no courage to move myself and feel the air...wish I too were that little happy kid who could keep his ego aside...and just move and say 'Hey! Come on, I'm sorry... '
