Misfortune, hard luck, and bad luck strike me…

The recent days were not at all good for me. I had consistent misfortunes these days. On October 6, I lost my wallet and I cannot recall how and where I lost it. I am not sad for the cash lost but I lost many things along with it. I lost my driving licence, identity card, voter card, bankcards, ATM cards, spare key for my car and photos. There was also a very old photo of my parents in the lost wallet. This is the first time that I lost my purse. 

On October 7, I went down to Wangdue to report on my lost licence and ATM and again, trouble struck me. I was giving way to the truck coming from the other way when a Maruti car hit me from behind. It hit my car twice, crushing my rear bumper. I got out and investigated the damage caused and to my little luck, the damage was not extensive.  The accident damaged the Maruti car beyond easy repair; most of the engine parts were affected. He would have to spend a lot to repair and for this reason, I let him go without any hassle. Actually, I was on the right track and he has to bear the cost for my damage if the police get involved but I showed pity on him. I was so frustrated with my luck and was not able to go on for some time.


The snake that I had to kill...
The reporting and replacing of ATMs went smoothly. Yet again, a dreadful thing was in store for me. As I walked out from the police station, a snake was waiting for me. It tried to curl on my leg and if I was not able to shake it off on time, I would have landed in the hospital or maybe a goodbye to my life as the snake was a cobra, which is poisonous. I did not understand the reason for the snake to find my leg. It was an advantage that I do not fear snakes. This reason saved me and made me to murder the reptile. I killed it with my slipper but I regret for the same deed. It was anger that led to the killing of the snake.  With this incident, I cursed myself for having continuous misfortunes and I was very cautious after that. I drove back at minimum speed and my eyes and ears were all active.
Sometimes we face such things in life that we do not welcome at all. I pray to the almighty to save me from this situation.  I am staying grounded for some days to keep away more trouble. God, please help me…
