Has it ever happened to you that you meet someone as a stranger, then you get out of touch, then you meet back again!?
I mean, for example, you see someone daily on your way to office, maybe on your bus stop. Neither do you two ever talk, but you know him and he knows you. Then, you get out of touch…you started commuting through car or something. And, then one fine day, you see him again in a totally different place and you come in touch…You cannot avoid but talk since you two are working together or something like that.
It has happened twice to me. With two different people. And, it feels so queer. I don’t know what it means in larger (read philosophical) term. But it is a weird feeling.
There’s one person whom I saw in my company. He was working on some project and used to visit the lab frequently. My seat was on the way to the lab. But, we never talked since there was no link. Then, I saw him again when I had gone to give an exam. Again, of course, we didn’t talk. Then, I came here to US. And, he’s been sent here from our company! Now, we did talk. I mean, please don’t see any romantic side into it, but it’s so weird that I wanted to know if it has ever happened to anyone else. There’s no more significance to the incident than it’s queerness. This had happened to me with someone else before too!
Probably, it just shows, that despite the huge population our world has grown to, world is still a small place. A real small one.
