Serendipity has played an important part in my life . I am convinced that most things happen in life by chance rather than design. Because if it is by design, I am definitely not the designer!
Almost everything in my life happened serendipitously : including my birth. Not only was I unplanned but even my actual birth was unexpected. My mother tells me I was born after a heavy tea of batata wada followed by a bumpy rickshaw ride home !
And this was just the beginning.
Thereafter a series of events led me to where I am. My choice of friends for example . I never set out seeking them but friendships just blossomed in the strangest of ways . Today I consider myself blessed with the number of people I know .
And what about my own “career choices” ?Though I was always fond of reading and writing I had never planned on becoming a writer . But after trying my hand at several things , writing seems to be the most enduring.
I discovered my talent for cooking purely accidentally too. So I can go on and on about how my life just happened almost organically. The most recent of these being my inspiration for my great Indian Novel that I will be writing this whole month as part of the NaNoWriMo challenge.
Yes serendipity has played an important part in my life .
And because of the uncertainty, I feel is is all the more enriched. Each day is like a treasure hunt where things unfold themselves magically.
I wonder what today will bring.
