It was on june 7th 2012, which i will remember always in my life. It was the day when i lost my phone(SONY Xperia S) which i had gifted to myself on my birthday. The day started with weird things. I got up at around 6.30AM and was in completely different world hurrying things. I was in the state of mind that, i would be late to office as i had meeting to attend at 10AM. I literally decided to take my bike to office that day. Then seeing me, my cousin said “Why are you in so much hurry, its still 7.30AM”. I was like, is it? then when i saw the watch it was 7.30Am and i was assuming it as 8.30AM. After realizing that there is so much time left, i decided not to take bike and go by BMTC bus. I had my breakfast and boarded bus from Vijaynagar to K.B.S. Got down at KBS and boarded 335E in order to reach office soon.
There was some strange feeling that day but i ignored it. While getting down the bus, one of the person stood in the opposite way so that it blocks me from getting down. I shouted on him and got down. As soon i got down, i realized that my phone is missing (within 5 secs) and boarded the bus again. Checked the bus and informed bus conductor about it. It was ringing at first but then switched off. I had a doubt on a person and tried searching him completely but was in vain. I was shell shocked by this incident as i took it with so much love and damned it, it was only 10 days :(. I filed police complaint but of no use. Luckily, there was insurance for the phone which i claimed and submitted.
That day i felt and realized the importance of a gift people give to their friends/parents/near ones. No matter of the size of gift or price of it, its the love behind the gift that matters and nothing else.
