The lost bag

Yesterday Rupesh went shopping. He bought a beautiful pair of shoes.

He was with one of his friend, Aakash. Rupesh narrated me the story that took place with them. 

Rupesh is not so rich. From the starting, he managed anyhow to make his pocket-money work for a month. Recently he had his birthday, therefore his parents gave him 2000 rupees to buy shoes. There he goes, 2250/- for beautiful shoes.

After buying the lovely shoes, he asked Aakash to feed themselves. There was a momo stall. Both agreed to have it. They sat there and enjoyed the momo. 

“Why you fear to go to the rides?” Rupesh and Aakash started the conversation and leaving behind the bag of shoes, both went away from the stall. 

After they left that place, the shopkeeper asked, “Whose bag is this?”

“It’s mine.”, a random vox heard. “I was searching for this bag everywhere. I forgot that I left it here. Thank you so much for keeping it.”

The shopkeeper gave the bag to him. He smiled and took that bag and went off.

Within 10 minutes, there came Rupesh, panting,“I left my shoes here. Did you see it? It was in that particular chair. I forgot to take that.” took a breath.

“I gave that bag to the person who assured that it was his property.”, Shopkeeper explained.

“But that was my pair of shoes. It was branded. A single piece in this town. How can you give it like this…? “ Rupesh cried.

“Leave. Don’t shout at him.”, Aakash said.

Sadly Rupesh came back to the hostel. Sitting on the chair, he was thinking what to explain to his parents. Suddenly, he heard his friend Manish exclaimed,“I have something for you.”

“And what is it?”, Rupesh asked.

“You were waiting for this, last 3 months. The single piece shoes, which you saw online.”, continued Manish,”I bought it for you.”

“Okay…” Rupesh was in shocked.

Manish handed over the same bag to Rupesh, which Rupesh left on the stall. 


Rupesh took that bag and opened the pack. “This is mine. Where you get it?”

“I bought it today. I knew you will love it”, Manish exclaimed.

Rupesh and Aakash started laughing. “Bro, this was lost in the shop. How you find it?”, Aakash asked. Both continued laughing and Manish started scooting from that room. “I took it from the stall. It was unclaimed. I am sorry.” 

“Hahaha… That’s okay”, Rupesh said.

Sometimes it happens that you will get what you want but in a way, you never thought of.

      1. “Sweet dreams can solve the future / Sweet dreams provide the past / Sweet dreams within your makeup / Sweet dreams will always last” — from another old Yes song on _Time and a Word_, 1970. I love that band. Their name is affirmative. I used to listen to this album when under stress. Very nice 😉

      1. I am very grateful and honoured by this, Shreya. Unfortunately I already spend so much time reading all the blogs I follow, and responding to comments on mine that I cannot do justice to the requirements. Congratulations on your award.
