Many call me opportunist. Many call me free loader. May be I'm all that as well. Hitchhiking on roads for days has taught me a lot about asking which I could never learn in my school or anywhere during my childhood.
The act of asking puts me out in a place where I have to be open to all judgements, open to all the responses. A few may acknowledge my requests, a few may ignore them, a few may mock me, a few may laugh at me, a few may ridicule me, a few may have no idea what I'm upto.
I'm striving to be equanimous with the all kinds of responses I receive. More to delve and introspect as I go through this whole asking journey.
