Why should I go bumping against people who were jogging?

10 Jul

I am once again thrilled to present LB/RB readers with something from Tito Rajarshi Mukhopadhyay.

Born in India, Tito is a non-verbal autistic person with a considerable talent for writing. His first book is (as I understand it) soon to be followed by a second. Enjoy.

Why should I go bumping against people who were jogging?

“Tito, don’t go that way. You are interrupting the people who are jogging.” I could hear my aide’s voice – loud and clear coming from a very fragile part of the world that I was trying to save at that moment.

I had a responsibility of saving a very scared and fragile world from the load of the sky that was threatening to drop any moment on it, if not for me and my responsible shoulders on which the sky had settled down, while I was walking around the trail.

Since I was feeling very responsible I did have my reasons for not obeying petty commands like, “Tito you need to walk this side of the trail,” or “Tito you need not run into any one jogging across from the other direction!”

The load of sky made me drift to the other side towards them who were coming towards my direction. Balancing the sky is never easy!!!

Since my aide did not see how I was saving the planet, he suspected that I was deliberately trying to block the passage of those serious-body-workers who have goals of sweating profusely so that they can mark the trail with distinguished vapours that evaporate from their individual biological fluids with independent chemical compositions.

Carrying the load of sky is not an easy and anybody’s work. And if people with whom I constantly bumped into had a problem comprehending it, that is not my problem.

    I think Tito now has three books published? I bought his latest, “How can I talk if my lips don’t move”. I’m reading it. It’s fantastic.

    Damn, sorry Tito. Wikipedia is out of date!

    Awesome stuff Tito! Always a pleasure. Thanks for balancing the sky.

    I’ve requested that the library buy everything that was available through Chapters.

    Their “Autism” section gets bigger daily and I am enjoying the recommendations.
