Do you believe in Stars?

A few weeks back some of us from office were on the way to Mumbai to attend a day long summit organized by Microsoft on their latest cloud offerings. Since we had left early in the morning, we took our customary stop at Lonavala for a quick bite. A colleague bought a newspaper and immediately skipped to the section on day's future.

We all asked if she really believed in stars/future and she said that she didn't, but what's the harm in checking out and if she could prevent something from happening, why not? We had a bit of back and forth on could or could you not prevent something from happening, if you really knew it would happen. Anyway her future for the day said something like be careful of where you tread and don't wear coloured glasses. I guess it meant something like don't see the world from coloured glasses.

Anyway, post the summit, we walked towards the sea shore. It was like our mannat come true, that we were next to Mannat (yes, that's SRK's home) (the seminar was at Taj, Lands End, in Bandara west). The colleague of ours hadn't seen sea before and was all excited to see it this close. As we walked towards the sea, we realized that the stones were covered with moss, making it very slippery and hence we didn't go further. But this colleague of ours would not listen. She felt shocked at the idea that she is this close to the sea, but hasn't touched it. So, inspite of our warnings, she went on, alone, and within seconds.....

It reminded me of humpty dumpty had a great fall :-). So her attempts to touch the sea ended with bruised elbows and back and we managed to pull her back without any more of us falling off. Surprisingly, her stars for the day had warned her, but she didn't believe in them now, did she :-).
