A blessing in disguise

Mr. and Mrs. David, our neighbour,  planned to visit Kashmir  during Mr. David's annual leave. On the day of the departure there were heavy showers. There was water logging . The airport was  far from their residence. They had to report an hour earlier from the time of  departure of the flight. Due to heavy traffic jam, they reached  the airport very late. Inspite of their pleading, they were not allowed to enter the airport . They returned home disappointed. As luck would have it, the aeroplane,  in which they were to travel, crashed. It proved to be a blessing in disguise.



This true incident has been reported here (names changed) in response to Write Tribe Prompt 100 words on Saturday. The topic, ' Blessing in disguise' suggested by Madam Shilpa Garg ,a  perspicacious blogger.

  1. Their lives were saved due to the delay and indeed it was blessing in disguise. I remember the tsunami that had stuck the Indian shores and my neighbours had planned a vacation to Andamans and had to be cancelled due to some exams of their daughter. It turned to be a blessing in disguise.

  10. Luck or heavenly blessing, no matter what we call it, we forget that whatever happens happens for our own good. We cant always see the big picture but life has its own plan for us.

    1. Correctly said, Reshma. Man proposes, God disposes.

  12. So true, everything happens for the best. It reminds me of 26/11 in Mumbai where I didn't take the train and missed a bus in Mauritius where so many people died in a road accident. I know the feeling.
