Taste The Coffee

The clock struck seven, alarm sang I snoozed for 10 min and again and again, but this time alarm song changed to “ Wakeup you idiot” . I opened my eyes slowly as just born baby and noticed bright sun rays sneaking into room through window and my mom standing beside my bed with coffee, her maid with broom stick . They look like warriors who fight with their coffee and broom stick.

“Good Morning, mom” I wished. I took coffee from her and had sip of that.” It’s tasteless, instead of waking me up so early its better you learn to prepare good coffee”, I said to mom.   “Dear, wakeup then you will experience the taste”, mom said and left. My mom words sounded senseless.

I rushed to my work, attended many calls with clients and meeting, kept seeing at clock till 6.00 PM to leave home. Reached home, Got fresh, and grabbed some food while planning a party with friends. mom sat beside me and asked “how was the day dear”. I replied,”its tasteless like your coffee”. “Dear, wakeup then you will experience the taste” she replied. It sounded senseless as usual .

At party we all spoke about everything in the world including my mom’s coffee. One of my friend argued with me that my mom’s coffee is the best coffee he had. He said something wrong with you not with the coffee. He ordered 10 varieties of coffee and asked me to taste and select the best. I did, and told him nothing is great! He replied, You don’t know how to experience. His words took me back to my mom words “ Dear, wakeup then you will experience the taste “.

In my busy life I forgot to experience the things, I’m just doing everything like a machine without any feelings. I wake up , go to work, speak, smile, eat and many without life in it. That minute my mom words made sense.

I reached home, slowly walked to my room and peeping out of window. My mom came next to me and asked “what are you looking at?”  “Today the sky is different than before” I replied. “ Ho is it ! what change in it ?” she asked. “Change is in me not in the sky” I replied and went to bed.

As usual the next morning clock struck seven, alarm sang I snoozed for 10 min and again and again, but this time alarm song changed to “ Wakeup you idiot” . I opened my eyes slowly as just born baby and noticed bright sun rays sneaking into room through window and my mom standing beside my bed with coffee, her maid with broom stick . This time they look like warriors who bring change with their coffee and broom stick.

“Good Morning, mom” I wished. I took coffee from her and had sip of that and said “coffee is very tasty”. Mom asked, “what did I do differently today?”. “I woke up differently today”, I replied. Walked towards my window and said to mom sun is very bright today. Mom replied “ That’s because you are experiencing it. You Idiot it took you these many days to wake up , hugged me and left room”.

“ We can buy coffee but not experience, That you should add up on “
