The festival of lights always brings with it a different kind of cheer and blitheness. The art of dressing up, socializing and spreading love is all out in the open. We do not refrain ourselves from spending a few extra dimes to ensure that celebrations happen in full swing,
With the ever-increasing concerns of pollution and quality of breathable air the use of crackers has reduced over the time however it still remains a concern. I wonder if our country will ever be able to follow rituals like other countries where fire crackers are burnt in an open ground, away from residential houses.
There are a lot of developments that as a citizen, I want my country would achieve and build upon. Some of these emotional developments include year long acts of kindness and care.
I wonder why is it that we need special days to show people appreciation or bring them gifts? Why is it that we feel the need to dress up only on special occasions, I definitely do not say that you need to be all dolled up throughout the year however, wouldn’t it be nice if one dressed on a casual weekday and everyone around appreciated them.
Why is it that families can remove time to visit each other only on festivals or unfortunate happening and not otherwise?
Too many whys and too little answers. My 5-year-old opened a pack of chips today which he was too happy to share with his cousins. He didn’t think twice if he was going to eat less or more out of that pack. He even offered some chips to a family member to carry with them in their lunch box.
I often say that it is not us, it is our children who teach us a thing or two. We are always striving to inculcate values in our children either through force or love forgetting that our children teach us the simplest things in the simplest manner.
They say don’t expect in love or any relationship. This holds true when you learn from children, they teach how things in the most unexpected manner and at the most unexpected times.
I wonder if these children will grow up to be the same adults as us or are they out to carve a different world of their own!!
May be a new world awaits them, a new world full of ideas, values, creativity and love!!
