Scary Speed

“Zoom! Here we go Ravi ahead of everyone on earth”,  shouted Sam driving a fiery red sports car.

Speeding could be toxic; it is insane you are putting your life under threat, why don’t you overcome your notorious act,” said Ravi little worried about his friend; when the car went BOOM!

“You killed my child, why on earth you did Sam; was he not special to you?” said Ravi’s father deeply hurt by seeing Ravi lying unmoved.

Omen of his friend's death shattered Sam; “It was my stupidity, I should have been punished for this silly act".

“It took me long to realize that most people give a lot away if you listen and observe profoundly”, Sam thought that Ravi’s flight to a new world had taught him a lesson that "A moment's fun can turn dangerous for life term".

  1. You certainly covered a lot of link in your post! Unintentional rash act leads to tragedy. A very common theme in life. I think Ravi's father might have wanted to punch Sam. The saddest tragedies are the ones that could have been avoided.

  5. In Texas Sam would spend from 5 to 20 years in prison for this carelessness.
    Negligent Homicide with a Vehicle. Worse punishment still if he had been drinking alcohol or was under the influence of drugs.

    1. Jim, whatever may be the punishment, important virtue is self realisation.

  6. If only we could get young (and not so young) drivers to take that message to heart. Some decisions just aren't worth the momentary satisfaction.
    You really covered a lot in here - all those prompts to work with! Nice job!

    1. Even Sam could have meet such tragic end; I think it's not selfishness, but an irresponsible behaviour

    1. Yes Roger, what they don't understand is this same hurry could end their plans too.

  10. I know people who will have to live with such regrets from the time they are young and foolish until the end of their lives. A very hard lesson learned. We should never take risks that endanger others. A very good tale!
