2 minutes

Yesterday evening I left office at around 6:45p.m. At the same time I saw many others leaving for the day. One of those guys from my office, decide to take a short cut to reach a petrol pump which is on the road to the office. Infact he took the wrong lane, was hit by a truck and lost his life. He is survived by his family and a small kid.
Today morning when I read this through a mail, I felt very sad for the guy and his family.

Many times we see people taking a short cut to save 2 minutes or even 2 drops of fuel. We fail to realize these 2 minutes could be the last 2 minutes of ones life as was with my office colleague.
While driving or taking such shortcuts we should keep in mind that this life is not only ours but a life of all the people around us, the people whom with we spend our lives.
