Presence of mind can be formally explained as the ability to remain calm and take quick, sensible action. It is really interesting how we can use our presence of mind and avoid undesirable circumstances in our lives. I would like to elaborate with an example: Two friends Ram and Shyam were travelling when Ram asked"have you ever been pickpocketed in a bus??" Shyam replied in negative and asked the same to Ram to which Ram also shook his head negatively. Later on the next Stop they could hear a man who was very angry and was heavily cursing someone on his phone. The man got off on the next stop when Ram told Shyam that when he asked him that question about getting pickpocketed, that man(who got off at the stop) was actually reaching into his pocket and upon hearing that question he quickly moved out his hand and distanced himself. Now that i Say is a great example of presence of mind that saved their pockets as well as an ugly confrontation. Please share your thoughts on above and sharing some of your experiences will also be appreciated.

That calm is what is needed even in a bad situation. I think it is something hard to acquire. I admire the two friends
