OMTEX CLASSES: Time and tide wait for none

Time and tide wait for none

Very few people understand the importance of respecting time. Time is elusive, because we think that we will always have time but the reality is that time does not stand still even for a second. A moment lost is lost forever. We delay decisions and then one day realise that it is too late to do something. We must be aware that even the smallest degree of slackness can cost us dearly, because time and tide wait for none. A2. Chintamani was in desperate need of money to pay his son’s school fees. Just when he was on the verge of losing all hope, he found a 500 rupee note outside his tea stall. Without a second thought, he picked up the note and rushed home. He gave the money to his son and asked him to pay his school fees. As his son was on his way to the school, he tripped over and fell, his books and the money scattering around on the ground. A police constable, who saw him walking hurriedly, went to him and started helping him gather his belongings. He then noticed the 500 rupee among his things. He took out a chit from his pocket and matched the series of the note to the one he found with the boy. It belonged to the same series of notes that were robbed from an ATM next to the tea stall that belonged to the boy’s father. The poor boy paid the price of his father’s dishonesty.
