because I am generally feeling happy today...

I remember reading this in one of the office emails I received one fine morning.

There was another email from the sender saying ' Sweets at my Desk. First come first serve'. Now, I was a new joinee and didn't know if you have to know the person to accept sweets from them to share their joy or would it be a dishonor of the invite to just let the email go unnoticed. When I was still deciding, I saw this message from the same person saying he was generally feeling happy.

I am quite choosy with the sweets I take and generally keep it minimum unless it is my favorite Gulab Jamoon ( yeah, that is for a later reference for the readers.. in case you plan to send me a box of sweets for some reason... if not anything else, the same ' am feeling happy' reason ). The email made me go over to this new friend's desk and share the joy..I really liked the second email message.. that's the only reason I went over. Took a Dhoodh Peda and ate it fully for the first time!! Almost always I would find a reason to avoid this sweet. This time I didn't coz I was super impressed with the reason...

And the words carved in my mind's diary.

Years later, two days ago when I was on my way to the temple, with a feeling of generally ' Nothing in particular', I chanced to see two kids happily hopping with few books in their hands. They were laughing and talking during the hop-run-skip tune 'to' or 'from' their tuition class I assumed. I recalled this ' because am felling generally happy today ' and smiled.. The kids smiled back and I asked them where they were headed and my assumption was right.. but I could not believe the last time I felt so happy to study something in a tuition class... I mean at 5:00 P.M on a working day, NO child can feel so happy to study again right after school... I guess the credit goes to the teacher, who probably makes the children feel generally very happy each day!!! I thought of the phrase I have heard before and I smiled..

When I turned my attention towards the road traffic, I realized that anyone who crossed me that minute would wonder what made me look as happy as I looked.... Did I have an answer?

Was it the email that is the root of this smile or was it the children's faces or was it the teacher I have not met in my life?

Whatever was the cause, I entered the temple feeling generally very happy. For once I know, that it is possible to feel happy for no reason.
