His coach, a large man with dense facial hair, reassures him that there's no need to hurry. "I will wait for you Aryan. Eat slowly.", his voice booms. Aryan nods shyly, rocking his dangling feet, never looking up, never saying a word, thinking thoughts I do not hear. His eyes betray a glint of comfort in his mentor's words, if only for a fraction of a moment.


    My thoughts turn to the coach. What is the source of his compassion? Parental instincts? An abused childhood and therefore perhaps, a desire to give what he did not get? A fortunate childhood and hence no knowledge of the alternatives? I may never know. But I do know this. I will wait for Aryan to finish.

    The best part so far ...
    Originality is the art of hiding your sources...

    Having confidence is like having battle scars. A person knows youre a successful warrior if you have a lot of battle scars, yet are still alive.

    That man in enroute a solo journey to South again (I know the route plan, but I guess theres some reason why he wanted it to be a secret)

    As far as closing this chapter is concerned. Neah! I dont see that happening!
    May be he will write about the new journey!
