Comedy of Error

Saturday, January 17, 2009

I was feeling more chilly than usual as I was, only few days back transfered from 'No Winter' Mumbai to chilly National capital New Delhi. It was unpleasantly cold winter noon & being Sunday I was feeling lethargic and finding it hard to come out of quilt, then I got a call from my younger cousin Meghna
Meghna: “How are you? What’s up on Sunday?”
Me: “I am good, how are you doing? “
Meghna: ” I am fine too, I was getting bored nothing much to do to day as it’s a holiday”
Me: ” go out and enjoy with friends”
Meghna: “Most have gone home; can we go for a movie today evening?”
Me: “ok, that sounds a good idea”
Meghna: “ok then see you in evening”
Me: “ok”

I went to see her in the evening and we decided to go for a movie in the vicinity of multiplex, we reached there 30 minutes aforementioned to movie and then took tickets and were just chatting on some topic. Movie was about to initiate and we decided to move in.

We entered the multiplex and saw on one of many doors of multiplex showing the title of movie which we were supposed to see. We entered the hall and there was no one on the gate so we located our seat number and sat there. Movie has already started.

Me:” did we enter late?”
Meghna: "seems like that”

It was barely 5-6 minutes when INTERMISSION was displayed on huge screen.

We were surprised to see that and looked towards each other in taken aback way.

Me: “how come intermission in 5 minutes?” I was almost certainly asking myself than my sister.
Meghna: “no idea”
All of a sudden, within few seconds, a thought came in my mind. I said to Meghna
“have we entered right hall?, lets go out and check on gate and match the hall number with that on out ticket”
Meghna: “ok”

We moved out and saw the number on gate and find that it didn’t matched and instantly we came to know it was our mistake and we entered wrong hall where same movie has reached intermission time. We busted into laughter on our own boo-boo and moved to our proper hall number, still laughing. There movie was about to start and we were still laughing and saw some girls incoming and laughing and discussion that they faced analogous problem.

We couldn’t stop out laugh and just watched half the movie laughing on our error. By the half time I came to deduction and said to meghna
“ since movie wasn’t a hit so it wasn’t packed and no one was occupying the same seat when we entered wrong hall, if that was the case we need not see there even for 5 minutes, and since there was no guard on gate we entered and located our sat if someone was there he could have guided us. But at the end it was our comedy of error as we didn’t matched the hall number with that on our ticket. We laughed and told the story to our friend.

The movie was Eklavya. A super flop but our error made it a laughter riot.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself... 'How did I get through all of that?

When we begin to take our failures non-seriously, it means we are ceasing to be afraid of them. It is immense importance to learn to laugh at ourselves.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Laugh at yourself and at life. Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity, but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain, cure your depression, and help you to put in perspective that seemingly terrible defeat and worry with laughter at your predicaments, thus freeing your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come. Never take yourself too seriously.

It is impossible for you to be angry and laugh at the same time. Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive and you have the poser to choose either.

Dr. Palki Vajpayee said...

If evil be spoken of you and it be true, correct yourself, if it be a lie, laugh at it.
That was nice :-)
