Mr XXX (..or say a name you like...) is an interesting person whom I met few months ago. He lives a few blocks away from our home and has recently moved to our locality from a different city. He has a family with 4 members and he is an engineer graduate and has worked as a chief engineer in many reputed organizations as he told me. In his early 40’s he took self-retirement and now enjoys his time either in developing some mysterious engineering and scientific tools or by travelling to different places of the world.
It’s pretty tough to say whether he is planning to visit a new country or has recently came from one if someone meets him. He mostly wears outdated clothes and has long beard with a strange look in his eyes. To my surprise, I found my conversation with him very interesting as he likes to talk about his plan to invent something very important to change the world. I am not sure what he is up to but it seems very thought-provoking to learn that he really believes that. He travels to hills and forests mostly to stay close to nature as he describes this habit to be helpful for idea generation. People often look at him very strangely and do some small talks about his attitude but I find him to be an interesting person. To my surprise he is a very devoted and dotting father and husband and has a good flow of money even though he does not have a full time job now.
I met him all of a sudden and that was interesting as well. One day he knocked at my door and I opened it. He came to our house and asked whether I can give him some copper or not. I was pretty perplexed with his sudden appearance and demand for the copper. He told me that he was doing an important experiment and he needs this to carry out his test. I apologized that we do not have any copper to offer him and advised him to visit the nearby shopping complex where he might find it. He returned back after an hour with some bags and thanked me to let him know where he might find the copper he was looking for. He then offered to visit his house and have dinner with him. The whole confrontation took me by surprise and I understood from that very day that he was bit unusual and interesting in nature.
