Change Takes It's Own Time...




Change is the talk of the hour, everyone is talking about it but at the same time, most of us are skeptical about it. "Nothing's gonna happen, it's India boss!" they keep reminding me. They are right in their own might; they are so used to see the same old things happening since such long time that the very idea of change makes them feel uncomfortable! It's hard to convince such people otherwise, until and unless they actually feel the change themselves! But to the believers also, I wanna say that change does not come that easy. It does take some time and effort to shake off that decade old dirt that has settled on your back.

Similar thing happened when my newspaper guy came to take the monthly payment and I asked him to change my newspaper from TOI to the Hindu (because I want to stay ahead of times, of course!) from the next day and he accepted the change full heartedly with smile! But the next day when I opened my door to pick newspaper with lots of hope and excitement, it was still TOI to my great disappointment! Well, I called up the newspaper agency to confirm if the message was delivered and he said it will be surely done form tomorrow.



But the next day as well, it was still TOI! I called up the agency again and this time not to tell but to ask which newspaper is supposed to be delivered at my place. He said, "The Hindu" with smile and told me that the hawker is so used to drop TOI at my doorstep that it's taking time to get the new idea into his head! How true, I thought! 

Every change takes it's own time, however small it might be... and we are talking about changing the Nation here! Keep going for it friends, it'll surely come!
