I’m on the return leg of my almost-daily evening walk. The road is congested with people returning back from work or study. Tired, dull and listless, they trudge along slowly, wearily.
It was as if a long day in college or the office has sapped their energy, drained them of all enthusiasm. All they’re looking forward to, it seems, is getting home, relaxing, and going to sleep.
Striding along at a brisk 6 kmph, I realize that I’m walking more than twice as fast as young people half my age!
