The Secret for happiness..


I was totally engrossed in a book when this man entered the train and sat opposite to me. Within minutes, I could sense a steady gaze on me and it made me feel uncomfortable. When I saw him, I was taken aback. Not just because he was blind. It was the expression on his face. I had thought that its the eyes which makes one expressive. And here he sat, with his headphones on-his smile had such a child-like innocence and his face seemed to effuse bliss. He could teach our models and actresses that plastic surgeries and dental fixes does not make a 'million-dollor-smile'. I was totally hypnotised and it was my turn to stare at him till my stop came. How I wish I knew what he was listening to..

      maybe he was listening to Aerosmith's Blind Man? :) .. btw, reminded me of one of Maupassant short stories, in quite a contrary way though!
