When you become familiar to the stranger's eye!The other day I was sitting inside a railway station and looking around the things nearby. Suddenly, a frail man, not very old, came to me and asked me how my poultry business is going and how is Dilip, my associate? I smiled at him and understood that it's a case of mistaken identity because neither I was associated in any poultry business nor I know anybody named Dilip, but I said it's going well and Dilip is at home. He also told me that I remained same even after so many years, since according to him he met me after 7 years, and wished me a good luck.
Occasionally these things do happen with all of us. Some of us ignore, some politely say the truth and some enjoy the situation. It's always enjoyable to see the other's reaction to such things. When this unknown person was talking to me I noticed the gleam on his face and he was certainly very happy to meet me. At times it becomes interesting to talk to a stranger on a phone line too. Few months ago, a person called me and started to tell me how long he has not seen me. I tried many a times to convince him that I am not the one he is looking for, but he never listened to me. I understood from the conversation that he had an argument with his nephew long ago and after that the nephew stopped talking to his uncle. He thought that I am his nephew and still holding the grudge against him, so I am refusing to talk to him by playing the trick of not knowing him. After disconnecting the phone I laughed at the whole thing for quite sometime. Strange things do happen.
