It was one more a tiring day for Swapnil in the office and he wanted to return home a bit relaxed. But he also knew the amount of crowd he is going to face at that time, which anyway would not allow him to take that relaxation for him. So he started to think for a trick in which in this crowded situation also he could manage to get one seat in the bus. After thinking for sometime, he also found out one trick and he thought of implementing that that day itself.
He went to the busstop and started waiting for the bus. He had no energy left with him to leave a couple of buses and wait for a comparatively empty bus to come, as he knew that till night 11PM, the buses would all come crowded. He cant avoid that and so its of no use for him to leave the first bus which comes, that goes in his route. So after waiting for sometime he found one bus to come in his way, which would travel in his route.
The bus was quite crowded. Swapnil quickly got up in it and started moving towards the back. Then finding one a bit empty place near one seat he quickly took possession of that and asked the one seating in front of him to hold his bag for him. The person dint refuse him. Then slowly Swapnil without standing just near him moved a bit front towards the driver facing the same direction to which he first stood, so that he is a bit far away from the person whom he gave the bag but also facing him. His only intention to move away from him was to allow himself to pretend that he is unable to hear what the person, holding is bag, is saying, which would be the scenario, he knew as per his plan, after sometime. Also he intelligently gave his bag to a person of young age so that when he would be giving his seat to Swapnil, Swapnil need not repent that he has taken that from a old person and that in turn the old person is facing difficulty and pain to stand the extreme crowd.
Now just after a couple of minutes Swapnil started implementing his plan. What he did was, he intentionally started glaring at the person who was holding his bag. Automatically like any other person, whether has any intention or not, as was able to understand by his sixth sense, that the man whose bag he was holding, was looking at him being in a situation to unable to call, may be to tell him something or not, was in turn looking at Swapnil. And as many times the person looked at Swapnil, Swapnil, as if the person holding his bag is requesting him to take his seat, pretended and signalled,
“Are you telling me? No no, I am ok, I can tolerate the pain of the pressure coming from the crowd towards me, you can continue to sit.”
At last the man holding his bag felt embarrassed thinking that how Swapnil and others is getting a wrong impression of him to be so good offering his seat, while in actual he is not doing so. As because, he thought, that others only seeing Swapnil doing this, would be getting a wrong impression that he in actual only has been asking Swapnil to take his seat but that they might have missed that part. So he stood up and really called Swapnil and asked him to take his seat.
Swapnil then pretending and again signalling said, “O no! See I told you so many times, I dont require, you can sit, still you are so good that you now stood up only and want me to sit. So now how could I break your heart by refusing you any longer. Fine then. Give my bag and I would sit. I would sit and hold it. See also you dont have any bag of yours, so that like you did one favour to me, I could also do the same to you by holding your bag. Anyways thank you very much.”
The person waved his hand and said, “My pleasure Sir, please sit. Not a problem.”
