Lift Thy Spirit

Strange. If there is a lot of space to move around , there is so much more comfort. Aptly , this can be seen on the streets, when it is not too crowded. Strangers even smile at each other. But, get into a lift, and if it is full of strangers, WOW ! It is totally different. It gives the guy to look at the chick beside or in front, !! It gives the gal the chance to glance at the guy too ! But it is so very uncomfortable, that it is not a gaze but a stare that welcomes people inside a lift. This is from my experience. Either a gang gets into the lift and makes a big noise inside, or it is pin drop silence, when there are only strangers in the lift.It somehow becomes that much more difficult to meet eye to eye in a lift, leave alone smiling at each other.

I guess, it all boils down to the discomfort of being too close for one's own comfort. No manoeuvring space, all crammed, and just a few souls around. Isn't it so that, distances create better bonding ? Well, in the lift though lack of distance doesn't help good bonding !!! But hey, this may not be the case where only a guy and a gal were to be in a lift :P. There is even a malayalam movie, where, guy and gal get stuck in a lift.The guy apparently is a chef from a star hotel, and he prepares Vegetable Fried Rice for the gal and she falls for him !!!!! Now, that's what I call, Love at first LIFT !!!
