Icon11 Its a Damn Small World


Disclaimer - Slightly long story, but do read the complete thing to understand!!!


So I was out with my family last evening celebrating Lohri at a City Club after the necessary rites/rituals at home. My Mamu ( Mom's Brother ), who's come from US of A after maybe 6 years, had to meet some people in Gurgaon, who he had called to the club as well. I happened to meet the family, and the nice gentleman and his wife were talking about what their son did, and inquired about what i was doing. Some techy conversation over cellphones happened, and i happened to chance upon the phone he had in his hand.

Now call it the geek in me or something weird, i just asked my Mami ( Mamu's wife ), that is their surname so and so. She was surprised and asked me, yeah, how do you know. I took it one step further and asked them if they lived in a particular section of Gurgaon, which they got surprised and agreed to as well. And the final nail in the coffin was, when i asked them about a particular date of their return, and they got shocked! And agreed.

I had been looking at buying that particular phone, here, on ERODOV!! And the member had told me that it would be available after that particular date! And he had given me other details as well.

And one thing struck another!! but Damn! What a small world...

It was a surprise to that member, when he called up in the middle and his dad gave the phone to me to answer.. And i was like dude.. This is JD666 from Erodov!! And he must've been like, WTF? i called my dad, who the hell is this!!!

But small world guys, small world!!! Thanks Erodov... Makes you even more special for me!!!

Re: Its a Damn Small World

Small world, definitely. I myself have had some similar encounters, not related through Erodov, but through one thing or another.

And dude, yes it is a small world!

As if the world wasn't already small, E made it smaller. Connecting unknown and unrelated people from all over and turning them into friends for life! Thank You @KiD0M4N
