It takes me 40 mins to reach work everyday
Anytime of the day
The road is a smooth ride – traffic but not enough to stall.
A 30km stretch with no red lights.
But every now and then, someone with a sense of urgency will go berserk
Jeopardize not just their safety but that of others too
And invariably, at the end of the 30kms I have rarely found them to be ahead of me by more than a minute. Two at best!
Makes me wonder – what is it really worth it?
Risking yourself to gain a minute or two?
When you start changing lanes, accelerating, braking, honking – you lose the perspective – what am I eventually going to get out of this?
All you focus on – is that I am doing this now and this is my present
The hare and tortoise wasn’t just a fictional life lesson
It’s an everyday affair
