We are amazing people
Never in a hurry to do things
With a wonderful sense of time
We seldom stick or wait for time
Instead it is the time
Which waits for us.

So this national carrier too
Has not been an exception
Till a few years back
It monopolized the Indian skies
Seldom sticking to schedule
But crew always so polite
They will never forget to apologise
For the inconvenience caused.

On one such occasion
As the air-hostess started...
Ladies and gentlemen..!
We sincerely apologize
For the inconvenience caused
Due to this delay...
I smiled at her -
But why?
Today you are on schedule
In fact before time, if I say so
She was taken aback for a while
Blushed and moved away -
I beg your pardon, sir
I'm only following
Our standard operating procedure...!
