It was just another day in my life. Only that I found myself in a new place. Though shocked, I somehow found it easy to adapt there. I was asked to stand in an already longer line, which kept moving slowly, like a conveyor belt in motion.

I did and was wondering where we all were going. Nobody even made an attempt to talk, so, I was talking to myself a bit. We were led to a large room which had so many tiny windows, all on the same side, placed about 1 feet away from each other. As directed by an attendant, we all went and stood before them [one per window]. All of them were open and led to a vision of hundreds of people inflating something on their own.

They all were of the same colour, which I cannot name now. While some inflated their balloons to be much bigger, some of them did stop after theirs were of a moderate size. Some left theirs, when the balloon size was just about a handful. I was curious at first and confused and bored later. "Why am I here?", I was saying to myself. But I also wanted to know the mystery behind the 'balloons'. I asked the attendant, what they all were doing. "Didn't you realize? They are filling up life in to formless bodies!", he said. The world seemed to swirl before me and I leaned on a wall nearby, trying to understand the entire thing.

"Tell me then! Those things that are inflated big, are indicating that people having those will live much longer! Isn't it?", I asked.

"Actually, its the other way around!", he said, smiling.

p.s. 1 - "But why am I here and seeing this strange thing?", I asked. "At the end of the tour, you will either be one of those lifeless bodies to be inflated, or join the ones that blow!", he said.

p.s. 2 - [Added later] I woke up confused, as usual.
Akila Mani, mums and strangerrr like this.

    Nice one. Is this based on South Koreans sending baloons with supplies to North Korea that was published this week?

    This is a great lesson that we could become lifeless not being useful to others and remain also ran or can spread our wings and get inflated to help others and make it purposeful.

    I don't know about the South Korea helping North Korea stuff Viswamitra. But I am very glad to receive a feedback from you, to this post. I know that this is very abstract, though. Thanks. -rgs

    On Monday, there was a news with photographs of South Koreans sending baloons filled with supplies to North Koreans as good will. It got wide publicity as it could lead to another merger of North and South like East and West Germany. I thought that this news triggered you to write this. What a coincidence and timing for you to write this. It looks like all good people all over the world are thinking alike.

    I heard that appreciations are of two kinds Viswamitra. One is for what you have achieved. The other is that which hopes that you will achieve. I hope that your appreciation was of the second kind. Thanks a lot but. -rgs
