The weekend was rocking with a late night DJ party, a bhajan mandali and an excellent card game of bluff. Those of you who do not know how to play it may find it a bit difficult to relate to my experience. but its easy to follow if u read thru the link..
We started this game with about 9-10 players.. All young, enthusiastic, bubbly and on the look out to catch each others bluff.. It was a hard time for the person whose turn it was to play, for he would be coaxed by all others to "call" the bluff of the previous player.. Now let me briefly tell u how it works.. In this game each player has equal number of cards and the person who gets to play can bluff about his cards.. (the cards are kept inverted) N if caught by the next person all the cards come to him n if the bluff call was false the person who called, has to take all the cards. N the winner is the person who finishes off all his/her cards.
My husband was playing it for the first time n he had a tough time deciding whther to call bluff or not when his turn came. n fortunately or not i was the one sitting before him. So he was subject to all the teasing saying he was being partial to me ;) all of course for fun alone.. It was a terrific evening with loads of laughter and a sumptous dinner after tat. But what made me post it in here is the lesson we learnt over this game of bluff..
It was plainly visible that all the other players tried to lure you into playing by wat they say. at times it was to call bluff at other times it was not to call bluff.. but they were all united. sumhow..
N that depended on just pulling each others leg or to confuse the person whohad to play. N in the end watever the result was whether the way you played turned in your favour or not, everybody laughed and you were the sole person affected by the whole thing.. That evening i learnt one small lesson.. the world is like that.. it always tries to lure you towards it.. trying to confuse you and to bestow its wishes upon you. for watever step you take, the world is not affected by it but its your life which changes by it.. It showed us the importance of deciding for one self.. How important it is not to be the football of others opinion..
