The word was "serendipity". Though you may know what it means, let me still tell you. Dictionary says serendipity is “good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries “
I couldn’t help feeling amazed that there are so many moments that I cherish; that are the best things to happen to me & all of them are but serendipity or ‘nature’s controversy in my favor’
Two of my ‘best friends’ (I was a hard-core believer of the ‘we-must-have-a-best-friend’ concept till quite sometime back) in school were not even friends till I and a friend of mine, happened to spend a night with them (Ahem!) in a night camp. Our beds were next to each others. While all other girls in the hall had slept, we four notorious creatures were far from sleeping. And so, we couldn’t help talking to each other. And voila! We clicked instantly & became the best of friends... We were together by chance in the camp & we decided to remain so by will.
& my dearest-of-dear, my soul mate… Again I met him randomly, purely by chance on orkut. Though we didn’t became the best-of-friends on orkut or yahoo (we became close, thanks to a common friend :)-- but that’s how I met him…Purely by chance!
Okay, I am not here intending to narrate my autobiography, but, the whole point that I am trying to put across is that almost all the great things that happen to us are chance events… Miracles of nature… Isn’t it?
