I was born in a society where Doctor and Engineers are only considered the most prestigious job than any other. With the same mindset, I joined an engineering college and became an Electrical engineer even I truly didn’t enjoy it. Working two and half years in a telecommunication company, I realized that engineering is not my stuff. So, I was looking for a change, a change that will find the purpose of my life. I truly believe that travelling will help to explore the purpose of life. So, I decided to apply for the abroad study and joined one of the University in Sydney.Continue reading
Yesterday, there was someone looking for me in my workplace. I wondered who it was. As soon as I saw, it was him………
Last week, I was returning back to my room on Sydney Train. I was about to sit on the middle of the upper compartment where I usually but today it was different scenario. There was a wallet on it and there was no one on that compartment.
I was in Dilemma. Couple of thoughts rose on my mind.
Should I take the wallet with me?
Why should I care?
What about giving it back to the respective person?
What if I will be suspected for the wrong doing?
What about being ethical?
What if it was your wallet?
Well, those questions were hard to tackle at that moment but I said to myself that I need to return this wallet to the respective person.
I picked up the wallet, put it in a side and wait for a moment to cool down myself.
After a minute, I just checked the wallet to figure out if there could be any contact address so that I could return it to its owner.
There was couple of bank cards, small notes, some cash, opal card, photo ID but none of them have any contact number. Well, I did found his living address. So, I was thinking about posting the wallet to that address.
In the next station, an old man came and started searching here and there. I watched him for some minutes and I felt like he was searching for that wallet.
Are you looking for your wallet? – I asked him.
‘‘Oh….. Thank you very much. I was so worried that I thought I almost lost it.”, he replied.
Further, he kept on saying,” I have so many important stuffs over here which would take me long time to recover hadn’t I not found it.”
”Thank you for your Honesty. Now, my faith on human being has been raised.”
” No worries.” I replied.
”Could you please provide me your address so that I could send you some thank you as an appreciation.” – he
”Thank you very much for that but I am OK. Just make sure that everything is fine with your wallet.” – I
As he insisted, I just gave him the address of my work place and he went away.
He just gave me a warm hug. It felt like I have done so much for him. He took out a thank you card, wrote my name on it and gave me with deep sense of fulfillment.
And it made my day……….
One of the best day of my life.
Time is continuous. It never stops even if we feel like that everything is as usual.
Let me Congratulate first…… My first year in Australia
It’s been a year in Australia and I feel like how fast the time passed away here in Australia. It feels like I was here a day before but the reality is it’s a year ago.
Wow, isn’t it amazing?
As time passed away, we keep on changing and so as the life changes. At this moment, I believe that I have really improved my life one step further in the sense like communication, public speaking, critical thinking, team work, networking, academic, leadership, time management, self awareness and so on. It’s not a one day change or effect. It’s continuous process and I have really worked hard to improve my interpersonal skills by involving in the Uni Activities.
Life is a journey – a journey where we keep on learning and improving ourselves better than before. Travelling to Australia and studying here has really given me a new vision in my life. As the culture between Australia and my country Nepal is completely different and it’s how we learn intercultural skills.
From Friends to Mate,
From How are you to Ha wa ya?
From all right to No worries
It’s how we get connected with Australian culture.
Well, it is really one of the productive year of my life. Hope this year will be more productive.
This weekend I got chance to visit Palm Beach which was in my bucket list. More than an hour drive on car, swimming on the beach and fifteen minutes walk to lighthouse made my day. Here are the some glimpse of the day.
It has been two weeks in Australia and I am still searching for Job. Got calls and interviews from some but results are still pending. I am sure everything will be fine and good in the coming days.
