I came across the below quote today. It resonated with an event that dates back to December 2007 when I made a cool fool of myself!


In December 2007, I drove from Rajkot to Ahmedabad via my classic Honda City Car. While driving, the objects from the glass looked fuzzy.

I thought maybe the glass was unclean, so I cleaned the glass, but still, it looked unclear.

Then I thought the front glass might have become old so I must change it.

I came back to Rajkot, and I got the glass changed for ₹ 7500/-

The other day, I had to drive to Ahmedabad again. Even on that day, the objects looked fuzzy from the front glass!

I was wondering what was wrong. Then I realized if I had got any eye numbers.

I got my eyes examined the next day, and I got -2.25 numbers!

I got my first numbered glasses, and from then on, everything looked clear.

Note to self:

  1. When we face any adverse situation, we tend to believe that it is someone else’s fault, but most of the time, that’s not the case.
  2. When we are quick in execution, we may often pay the price for the lack of depth.
  3. It is better to question our actions (and non-actions) first and then anyone else.
