I am a clock. My life is a very royal one. I am writing my autobiography to tell people how royal I am. I was a very famous invention. Before me, seeing time was very difficult for people. They had to look at the sky and make out the time which may not be precise. The invention of clock really helped them. I depicted time very precisely. Now, they could plan everything according to me. If I say it is night time, you should sleep, they would sleep and, if I say it’s daytime, you should wake up, they would wake up. I clearly ruled over them and their minds. I felt like a king whose every order is followed and everyone fears his wrath.
At first, I used to come in a huge size and people would carry me on pack animals to their houses. They would then install me in a spacious place from where they could see me easily. There was a big oscillating bell beside me which use to blow when midnight used to happen. They used to plan every event according to me. Before any important meeting, they used to look at me and decide the timings. I really enjoyed that time.
Then, as time progressed, I started coming in more advanced ways. My size got a bit smaller and now, there was no need to carry me on a pack animal and put me in a spacious place. Clocks could easily be hanged on the wall with the support of a bolt. I started coming in different attractive designs and colours. It soothed people to look at me. They would see me before doing everything. I was always in front of their eyes tangibly and, intangibly, I ran in their heads all the time.
Then they further developed me and made me portable. I started coming in a version which could be worn on the wrists. This made me very easily accessible and people used to see me almost every time.
I am writing this autobiography while resting on a man’s wrist. He constantly looks at me, before doing anything. I really enjoy this royalty and I love to be a clock.
