We all are pressed for time, especially when it relates to balancing family and professional life alike.
Take my example being a person employed in a great organization that respects its clients and its employees alike. The only issue (If there is one) is the travelling in Mumbai, specifically between my office and home. To share, I stay at Kandivli, and my office is around 33 kms away from my house.
Travelling to the office is nothing less than an adventure
It involves me to jump on an auto-rickshaw, then to a local train and then to an auto-rickshaw again to reach the office.
Oh, the ordeal here is generally 1.5 hours on an average.
The stop where I board my train for a long journey back home often is jostling with passengers carrying their office bags like a soldier would have done in any action movie. It amazes me the swiftness with which they get onboard, hunt for a seat and by the time I join the chaos, they had already started reading the important chat that they continued before the local train came!
Now can I be as swift as them, probably not because I am not getting any younger these days!
I guess I have gotten used to the routine because I know that's the way life is-until recently I noticed someone do something that made my life a little more, can we say "comforting"!
This is where a woman in her mid-50s taught me the lesson that I needed otherwise as well (for my investing). Become a contrarian while investing in the Indian stock market!
