LET ME 'LOOSE MYSELF' FOR A WHILE!

"How was your experience in shifting to your new home?"

"Oh! It was a hectic effort all the way to take care of my precious items and move them safely to the new house.. I was physically present on the spot from the time the manpower and the vehicle arrived.. Soon I was following up the activities as the men 

  • Loaded the items into the huge transport truck all tied up,  
  • Carefully unloaded them at the new place and 
  • Positioned them neatly in the respective rooms temporarily.. 
In spite of such a care too, in the process,
  • One man broke an item, 
  • Another spoiled the function of another and 
  • A third carelessly dropped the third..
I never yielded and straight away deducted the respective costs from the money I had to pay them as I clearly remember to this day too, how much I struggled to 

  • Survey and search, 
  • Locate and select and 
  • Pay and move those items home..

Subsequently, I sent the labor away so that I could at leisure open the packages and re arrange my items to my satisfaction without any disturbance.. 

"Okay.. You too shifted to your new home some time back; wasn't it?  How was your experience then?  Was it similar?"

"No.. Not at all.. Mine was totally smooth and care free.. First of all, I didn't have too many items with me.. The people working for me at the old place and the men who helped in my shifting expected something from me.. I gave them away

  • Some of my unused items freely, 
  • Few old useful items for a negotiable price and 
  • One new piece for the Service and Help I got without which I couldn't have completed my job of shifting.. 
 They
  • Asked me to be at my own ease, 
  • Arranged all my essentials and other decorative pieces in the right places, 
  • Wished me all the best in my new house and went away contented.. 
All said and done, I had nothing to do further and retired to my bed early that night with a feeling of
  • Lightness in my actions, 
  • Happiness in my heart and 
  • Contentment with my people who helped me in the job!
