A lot can happen over a coffee

Here is what I feel about, People criticizing the system of cafes and coffee shop in India. Its just a a way of spending money, is what they say. Come to see of it, I was feeling a bit low since morning and so wanted to talk to someone and just go and chill out somewhere nothing where there will be loud music or anywhere where it is really quite, but some place where it is just a comfortable place to sit and solve your problem with someone. I went to a nearby café, it is a comfortable place with a couch facing the open ground of shivaji park, I sat there reading a book and waiting for a friend, after 10mins or so after I had settled down the waiter came in with the menu card, I told him that I was expecting someone so is it okay if I order after he comes. The waiter tell me no problem keeps the menu card on the table and leaves, and I continue reading my book and waiting for my friend. This shows how much they care for their customer and you feel relieved there, you are in a problem already and someone acts good to you that brings a instant smile on your face.
After the person I was waiting for came, we started talking and were really engrossed in it, the waiter came after sometime and took the order, I continue talking with my friend trying to solve the problem, and we are left without any disturbance. After we finish the coffee the waiter comes with the bill, we pay and we leave.
Don’t you think that was worth the price we paid there?. You spend a comfortable treatment there, you talk to your friend your heart out you enjoy a really nice coffee, and now you have solved your problems and are happy! I really do think its really worth that 100rupees we paid them. And I now do believe in the tag line “ a lot can happen over a coffee”. 

This is not a topic to support suicides or to glorify people who have already committed suicide. its just my take on suicide. This thought just came to my mind the other day, I was talking to one of my, tanay, friend about people who commit suicide “ I just feel they are coward, and cant face the world”, he said.

Come to thing of it, I don’t really understand how can you call them a coward? A normal guy will start shaking by the thought of death approaching him, imagine just taking a knife and cutting of your vein or standing on top of the building and jumping down.
I don’t guess the people who commit suicide are coward, I mean to say, how can a coward just cut his wrist off, or jump from a building which will mean “hello… I am not coming back” how can a coward look straight in the death’s eyes and still have courage to commit suicide.
I guess the problem is deeper, instead of sitting and cursing those people who committed suicide and call them coward, why don’t we avoid it by just trying to solve their problem. But no! who got time in this bloody world? All we people think of is how to do great in life and make other sulk. Why cant we bring humanity back? Why cant we sit with our friends and just talk the problem out and help them out?
People who are still act good to people and are loyal are taken advantage of by other people.
World is beautiful and no one really wants to die and leave this world, but there are circumstances where they feel they are helpless and no one to listen to them and the only way out is to get rid of the life in a hope they will get peace after they leave this mean world.
