“I met my engineering classmate riding pragyia 5 years after graduation”


Hadi and Minna Studied Engineering at a University in the Ashanti region. They were both Classmates and after Five years of Studying hard, they both graduated. After graduation, Fate took them through different paths of life.

Five Years later, Minna after much frustration of securing a job, ended up as a Secretary in a Building firm earning 1,500 cedis monthly.

Meanwhile, Hadi on the other hand, couldn’t Secure a Job and ended up a pragyia rider, He makes At least 100 cedis daily and if he works for only 20 days in a month, He makes 2,000 cedis that month.

One Evening, Minna closed from work and was at the bus stop waiting for taxi when Hadi stopped. She hopped in when she discovered the pragyia was going her way but little did she know it was Hadi. All through the journey, she was lost in her Phone.

She reached her bus Stop and after alighting, just when she was about paying, she took a look at the driver and their eyes met, wow! They were both happy.

“Is this you?” they both asked themselves simultaneously as if they planned it. Minna gave him money but Hadi insisted she keeps it. He was happy to see her and for old time sake, he left the money for her even when she insisted that she wanted to pay. They both exchanged contact and left.

Well, Minna went home that night and was lost in thought. Not as if Hadi was looking bad but Hadi Riding pragyia? She couldn’t wrap her head around it. She Pitied him. Felt Sorry for him. If Hadi had allowed her she would have paid him and beg him to keep the change.

Little did she know that, Hadi actually has another pragyia running for him, He is a Land owner and he is planning on developing it soon. But because he was driving a Taxi, She felt Pity for him.

On the other hand, Hadi felt sorry for himself too. Before he slept that night, he remembered Minna, how neatly she dressed and nice she smells, “She must be earning over 5,000 cedis per month” he said to himself. He felt ashamed, He felt like a failure and he felt she was way ahead of him financially and otherwise.

Little did he know that, If Minna removes the transportation fare and feeding money from her monthly salary, it will take her at least 3 Months to earn what he earns monthly.

Sadly, this could be some of our reality, you measure your progress and success with that of your friends, Classmates and Relatives even with very limited information you have about them.

You think yours is worse because you look dirtier, you think yours is worse because you are not on Corporate wears, you think yours is worse because the other person acts and looks Nicer.

Stay Focused and Face your life. It’s not a competition. Stop Comparing things, you don’t have the full picture. Every one is running on his own lane. Be contented.
