The odd man out.


In this world of utter selfishness and bitterness , some too good men still do exist.

Here comes a story of a guy, just 21, but a whole lot different from most others.
He is perhaps not suitable in this mean world of 21st century..
This not a story, a very true incident, and too good to believe, if you haven't seen him truly.


But I am lucky enough to get such a person as my classmate. He is too good for the world. The character may seem a reel-one but its a real-one.

A true human being he strives to be from every aspect of his life. 
But may be some, after hearing about him ,may say ,that he is not really ' good'.

Well, lets start.The Auto fare from Garia to our remote college stoppage was Rs.5.50 then.
This guy used to travel by auto. And most of us are acquainted with these days' south kolkata's autowalas(no offence intended) who are famous for their movements in the most static traffic, their lingo and their OTT behaviours..This guy pays normal fare everyday.

But one day, somehow an auto wala paid him back Rs.6 as a balance for Rs. 10 ,what my friend paid(originally he was supposed to get Rs.4.50, as d fare was Rs. 5.50) and before he could say anything the auto passed away with high speed..Now, this guy was in problem (as he felt it was not a right thing to give inappropriate amount of money to d autowala..).So what he did???

guess..

guess..

guess..


No, he didn't ran after the auto...
He just dropped a 1 Re.coin and a 50 P. coin on the road....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because according to him~ it was no more his, as the autowala actually deserved IT...

What to say??!!!


Another incident:
He was coming to college on that day by train.The train arrived at the platform , just as he entered the station.So, as he was just on time, couldn't go and buy a ticket, just boarded on the train, without ticket(Which is Strongly against his principles....)..

So what to do???

All day he was in a bad mood as 'strong sin-sense' was working in him.... 
So what he did?
While returning back home by train,he bought TWO tickets and threw one away..!!!!!!

He is not a very regular college-goer. So whenever he goes to college he takes the class-notes from other people for getting it xeroxed. Now by any chance if theres even a slight wrinkle in any of the pages of the notes he would give a new gum stick, a new cellotape to the notes-owner along with his/her notes..we become speechless at his such mannerisms, yet can't protest. Once we took the gum(which he gave one of us along with the notes) back to the college stationary shop and in exchange took a pen and somehow gave it to him, and fortunately he accepted without understanding the real story behind the pen..:)

I ,rather we don't get this man...We all shout at him, crazy, eccentric, lunatic and don't know what else...But he continues in  his strange (morale) ways...
There are many such incidents of his....
But we really can't make out whether he is tooo good a person or just a crazy fool ..!!

Aww...what a Gem...!

He is really a nice guy, i can see so...

Its too odd that he is an odd man out but for the good reasons anyways..

I wish i could find some good souls like that around me :)

He is a person who is taking himself "very seriously". I am a bit like that. It is not a good thing. Definitely his intentions are very noble and his conscience is clean, but he needs to learn to "let go". Letting go is something everyone must learn, especially me or else one can lose the battle of life. The consequences are far too many to be left in a comment here. Perhaps a post on this will do. :-)

Thank you for the lovely comment on my recent article. You've got the picture right and that lightens me up. Cheers.

Sorcerer said...

wow!! untouched by reality
hard to find such persons.

Shafi said...

I think he is normal.. but just too cautious about his activities. May be he was trying to not hurt others feelings.

Rajlakshmi said...

but its because of people like him this world still exists :)

NesQuarX said...

I think he is a simple down to earth guy!!

I like his simplicity, such guys do exist :)

jiths said...

every person has certain principles in life.. but they are very flexible ones.. you may be against bribery and all..but when a big offer is made, we sometimes flexibly change our own rules and accept it wit lots of excuses to support..
i too thought that i'm a person of principles..but later i cud see myself changin accordin to diffrnt situations..
this guy is certainly not like that..a man of principles..a man of words..but a kindaa extreme..
Most of the ppl dont do a think for fearin that what othrs 'll think..this guy is certainly not like that..He is a great soul....

Being Pramoda... said...

he is definetly not a crazy fool i guess. lets appriciate him..what all we cant do, and we think we cant do, are being done by someone..thats good experieces u ppl are gettng by being with him..

good one rimz..:)

Oxymoron said...

i think he is a stubborn idealist.....such kind of people often do stupid(i mean 'eccentric') things to make a point.....but surely they are fun to hang out with...they always present a fresh perspective to things....

anyways i write at http://theoxymoronworld.blogspot.com/
give it a visit sometime....

I wish i knew that person.
A very commendable attitude... Judging people, as most of us would agree, is a bad habit. So.. how far it is fair to call him eccentric is for themselves to asses.
I appreciate your efforts to write about him. The flow of thoughts and words are lucid. Nice posting.

Do take a dekko at my blog when you find time. http://findvikki420.blogspot.com/
Cheers.

Nuts..

sulagna said...

nice nice..i thought god stopped manufacturing these kinda men!

Rahul said...

Simple and stiff way to narrate a person . Liked it.

Heyy I dont find a problem with his character. He is living by his principles, ideas and thoughts. More than that he puts damn good effort to maintain it.

I judge him a stable guy in this really unstable world

gayathri-vishwanathan said...

i have never come across such people before...

but on second thoughts people should learn a lesson or two from ur friend...i mean i do not agree with him when he brought two tickets and threw 1 out or when he dropped the coin on the road...it was weird according 2 me but atleast we should learn to stick to rules and learn to retain our moral values...world would be a great place if we stick to the rules and norms. Nice blog...will keep coming here :-)

This is world of grey people ...shades of black and white come in varying percentage....
I firmly believe that a human by birth and default is good , it is time and circumstances that make them compromise their ideals.Sad that idealism is so covered by practicality these days that honesty , which is an individual attribute that justifies the human existence has become a story.
Thanks for sharing , It might spring a few sleeping minds into actions....
