This is my bag. When I was buying it, I told the shopkeeper to give me another one similar to this but not “crocodile patterned.”
I didn’t like crocodile patterned things, perhaps because “crocodile pattern” reminds me of the idiom “crocodile tears.”
The shopkeeper had a look around, and then said that it was the only piece available in this model.
I was running out of time, so I bought it.
However, after few months, I realized that it is all about perspective.
Perhaps, I needed a bag with “crocodile pattern” to remind me always to develop a *thick skin* like crocodiles, so that I don’t react on every thing easily, especially when it is not my cup of tea in terms of aakhirah (hereafter).
It is always about perspective. Sometimes, we don’t like a thing very much, but that’s exactly the one needed by us in the long run!
