The park where I go for morning routine has got joggers track, walking track and an open Gymnasium. So, my routine starts with walking track and closes at open Gymnasium. Yesterday, I closed up my routine and started getting ready to go home. I found a senior citizen sitting after doing his gym routine, sweating and getting some fresh air.
“Gupta Saheb, why are you sitting now, have you completed your routine?”
“No, two rounds of walking are remaining, I am just waiting for my wife, she is coming in. If I do that now, she will come and I will be forced to go for two more rounds with her, so I am just waiting for her to come, just relaxing.”
“Why do you bother, just finish your routing otherwise your body will cool down and you will not feel like walking, once she comes.”
So, Gupta jee went for two more rounds or till Mrs Gupta Joins him for walk.
I walked out of gate after 10 minutes and met Mrs Gupta there.
“Madam, you are late today. Gupta jee was waiting for you.”
“Where is he now?”
“He has just gone for two rounds of walk.”
“It means I am on the right time.”
I gave a surprised look.
“You see, I wanted to come when he finishes his exercise routine and then I want him to accompany me for two extra rounds of park, he needs four rounds of this park as per doctor’s recommendation but does only two rounds which is no good. Gupta jee started waiting for me, holding two rounds of walk for me. So, I started coming late by 10 minutes so that he gets some extra walk with me and four rounds of park are completed.
“But you need to do some exercise as well?”
“Yes, Gupta jee does some stretching with me as well.”
“Cooling down is also required.”
“You see, I have my company and I go for two rounds of park in the evening with my friends.”
“You can bring Gupta Jee in the evening as well. Why You wish to stress him in the morning only at one go?”
“Problem is that he commits but does not come in the evening on the regular basis ...sometimes IPL is there, otherwise he is keen to watch news. So, I do not wish to take any chance with him so let the good things be finished in the morning only. He has to earn his Parathas also”
No argument from my side.
I could feel the plight of Gupta jee…but than it is good for him.
What do you think?
Can you outsmart your superior half?
Hope Mrs Gupta gave you the answer.
