While rushing to office or home, you may have sometimes noticed a large gathering of people circled around something on the roads.
If you look closely, you would see that they are not doing it as part of a sacred ritual; rather, all of them are peering down at something. It is amusing how so many people have so much of free time and that too, at the same time!
You may not have the special quality of being a part of this gathering; it requires a lot of time and energy (and strong elbows to push yourself around). I think you actually have to be born with this kind of extreme curiosity.
Let us see how this curious people deal with a certain incident.
Suppose, all of a sudden, a man starts selling some weird looking herbs and liquids in small glass bottles sitting on a tool beside a busy road.
As soon as he starts talking about the magical properties of his products, a crowd automatically begins to gather around him.
They rarely buy anything but keep asking about everything. Some support the salesperson, some express their doubts yet both parties do not leave the place and keep poking their heads into the crowd.
The most curious crowd forms during evictions of small shops from the footpaths.
So many people gather that it becomes hard to distinguish between the officials and the regular people.
Hundreds of people walk at the same pace with the police officers and the magistrate, following them around as if they are spiritual leaders.
Like a group of ants, they move here and there in a rhythm to finish their duties. Some murmur their opinions while others just keep staring. This can go on for hours, as the thrill of these expeditions only increases with time.
The most interesting thing about these people is that they are very fond of multimedia equipment such as cameras and microphones.
When a TV reporter is seen covering a news, immediately a group of people start following him/her around as if they are sniffing out the news like detectives.
With every word that the reporter utters, they bob their heads up and down in unison, like those spring dolls. This increases when any member of their clan is asked by the reporter to speak.
It is indeed a matter of suspense that how these curious cats waste so much of their time just by walking around like a flock of chickens.
Therefore, if you do not belong to any of these groups yet, pick your preference and get the registration done. After all, being part of a gang is always super fun!
