Talking about coincidences, in 1983 I was working for a audit firm and the partner of that firm had asked me to come for a discussion. So, I left the client place and went to meet the partner.

When I went the partner was busy with a client and so I had to wait for him outside in the visitor’s area. There was an almirah nearby and lots of books were stacked there. The partner seemed to be a book lover besides being a good book-keeper.

As I waited, I started browsing the titles in that almirah. One book named “Synchronicity – Incredible coincidence” attracted my attention. I got curious and picked up that book and started reading it. Hardly I would have completed few pages which made me even more interested in that book, the partner called me for discussions.

I kept the book aside and went in to meet him. The meeting completed and as I got late I just left his office, for the moment forgetting that book but subconsciously remembering it.

Few months later I resigned from that firm, moved out of Chennai (where I lived when I first read those few pages) and went to Delhi. I was however, always thinking about that book but was never really making any effort to find that book in any book shop.

Then one day, I had to go to a bank for some discussions late in the evening. By the time the meeting ended, it was about 7.30 pm. I left the bank and as I was on my way just near the bank I saw a bookshop. I was not at all considering buying any books but just decided to go that shop to browse books of my favourite author Jeffrey Archer.

I went into the shop and started looking for the shelf for Jeffrey Archer books. I could not find any in the ground floor. So, I went and asked the store owner who directed me to the first floor. While I started walking for the first floor, a thought came to my mind about the book that I had read many years ago at the audit firm and I was wondering if I should search for that book in this book shop. Thinking about it, I started climbing up the stairs. Right near the stairs, they had kept a turning rack where they had displayed some books. Believe it or not, this book Synchronicity – Incredible Coincidences was hitting me on my face right at the side of that rack which I would have surely missed if I had not gone to that shop. I immediately paid for tht book and rushed back home to read it further.

Isn’t it incredible that I was at the right place at the right time for buying that book?

a) It was my chance entry into that bookshop
b) I was not really thinking of buying anything but having entered started looking for Jeffrey Archer
c) Jeffrey Archer books were not kept in the ground floor
d) Instead of walking out of the shop, I went and enquired the shop owner about Jeffrey Archer books
e) He directed me to the first floor – so I had to go near the stairs
f) And so I could see the book that I actually wanted to buy/ read all those years?

Do you have any such incredible incidents in your life?

    Incredible things do happen sometimes for the good, sometimes not so pleasant.

    Sunder,

    Whatever co-incidence I have experienced so far have only been pleasant. It is something like some divine intervention is there to make us do something at a particular time or be there at a particular place so that something that we are looking for or is needed by us becomes available there.
