One man can really make a difference!

The other day I was watching Spider man 3 and one dialogue really stirred me. The dialogue was; ‘One man can really make a difference!’ It sounds quite plain and for some people kind of cheesy but if you come to think of it this is the most frequently asked social question. You hear people getting mugged and you decide in your head that you won’t resist either as one man can make no difference. You see corruption every where and decides comfortably to be the part of it because one man can make no difference.

But there are people in the world who step up and make a difference not just because they need fame, money or chicks; but they just can’t stand any shit. These people are not comic book heroes they are real people like you and me who smoke, curse, who stand in the line to pay bills, who wait for the bus on the stop. The other day some guy I know surprised me with his little act of courage.

This was about a few weeks back when he was walking on the street under the scorching heat of the sun. He was tired, thirsty, and a little unsure about the project he was working on as his future degree is based on it. He was heading to the bus stop, to release some pressure off his head he took out a cigarette, lit it and exhaled a light gray smoke cloud in the air. He knew that a smoke won’t help him in anyway but what the hell; he took a deep puff and filled the air with another smoke cloud.

In the mean time, he passed a girl on the bus stop and two guys coming from the apposite direction. After a few steps he halted and started waiting for his bus. He realized that the street was kind a deserted and God forbid there is a possibility of getting mugged. Ten more minutes passed and there was no sign of the bus. The girl was glued to her position as well. To add to his displeasure he saw a guy on motor bike (Honda 125 ) approaching towards him. The speed kept on lessening; Bye Bye!! Cell phone he told himself. But surprisingly the bike passed him and stopped where the young girl was standing. He realized that the guy who was in his mid thirties was as stranger to the girl as he was to him. The girl was in immense displeasure as the guy was probably harassing her.

Enough! He told himself and walked up to the guy and barked; ‘Do you have a problem mister!’ the guy was surprised on this question. The guy replied ‘No!’ On this answer he took a more aggressive tone and told him to get hell out of there. The guy kicked his bike and disappeared in few seconds. He took a look at the girl who was a bit relieved. He said nothing to her and walked to the spot where he was waiting for the bus.

    Couldn’t agree more-// one man can really make a difference//. You mentioned a positive difference. George Bush alone has created such mayhem in the world.
    The story was motivating.

    but i dont agree with you about bush being 1 bad guy making this world a horrible place for all of us. Every super power needs to act like this in order to maintain its position in the world. example Blair n many eouropeon countries abiding by Bushes war against terror policies .

    I don’t agree. Blair joined Bush but has accepted his mistake on a couple of occasions(intelligence failure). France and Germany opposed the Iraq war and that is why there was no security council resolution. We have to differentiate between rulers and the people of different countries. If you remember the only protest rallies worth mentioning against the Iraq war were held in London and New York. If Bush’s succesor is anywhere like Bush America would cease to be a super power in the coming decade.

    People of America n ENgland Re elected Bush and his partner in crime. Those so called worth mentioning protests have little or no value when it comes to the policies adopted by their respective Govt.

    France n Germany might have apposed the war jst verbally but how many sanctions do we see against a country like Israel which has continued killling innocent civilians for so many decades. If Iran or any other Muslim state will attack an xyz country in Pluto even these eouropeon countries will bycott that Muslim country and will help USA attacking her.

    iam sure the new USA Govt. republican or not will continue Bush’s foreign policy.

    Err..whats guaran??

    As far as the story is concerned, once it happened that i was waiting for my friends to show up outside uni, since their bags were lying around me, i couldn’t very well go back to my uni. Now the thing is, my uni is situated a bit outside karachi and not exactly the safest place on earth. Anyhow, i was standing there all alone when a car aproached and the drived stopped beside me and asked me to sit in the car. I usually claim to be bold person who don’t need a man’s help but there i got a bit scared, just than a classfellow of mine approached, saw me there ans stood beside me. That driver quitely went away. Than i didn’t know that classfellow of mine that well, but he still opted to stand with me instead of catching his desired bus. He remained there until all my friends showedup along with our ride. Thats how i came to know Om. And let me tell you this, sometimes little things really matters in a BIG way!!!

    Its not about to be a man or woman, all you have to do is to take a risk and just hit something on the head of that stupid man. I know it would require some courage but its for 1 time only then you would be ok with it.
