We will disappoint you. Deeply. And if disappointment is not your cup of tea or plate of kebabs, then we advice you to discontinue reading this. Instead, we recommend you to look at the feautured image above and appreciate the process of taking the next step.
If you are still with us, I’m afraid you will have to be with us for the next few hundred words or so, until we watch you take the next step and move on to another article, while we remain stranded in the yellow grass in which the bird is slowly sinking in. Look again, what do you think? The bird is hesitating to take the next step? Well, nope. It is the photographer who had clicked the image at the right moment, right? Again, nope. It is the grass!
The ones who had discontinued reading, had surely applauded it by now that the grass is infact, quick sand. The bird put a little more pressure on its left leg, and there you go, it started to sink. Look at its eye, you can almost feel the pain. You can almost sink into its mind. Wonder why? Because, its eye is no ordinary one. It is quick sand too. All camouflaged to deceive you. To disappoint you.
You hoped you will learn something new, read something amazing, but alas, you end up being disappointed, despite the dreadful disclaimer. The ones who had quitted had understood everything by now, and are probably onto their next article. But you? Still stuck in this labyrinth of words.
You see, such is life. You are given a disclaimer. But you struggle through. You start to suffer, but you still struggle through. But at the end, you emerge victorious, just like the ones who had already quit after the disclaimer.
But you have been disappointed. They have not. It might seem like they are the winners now, but believe me they are not. Neither are you. Neither am I. Nor the photographer, who by the way is Kingshuk Mukherjee, a world renowned wildlife photographer.
The true winner is the bird, because it is indeed taking the next step. Despite sinking, it still is taking the next step. And to succeed, you too should take your next step. And to make that a little easier, when compared to the aforementioned quitters, we are providing you the link to the next article. Click here and you will jump immediately to that link!
