It doesn't take plans to clap your hands!!!
I feel majority of our problems around us have their root on our perception of things. No more we think in natural way and all our thoughts are biased with negativity. So pointing our mind towards the natural positivism will certainly enhance our life.

It's an incident that happened few years back. We were standing on the railway station of Cuttack to catch Rajadhani Express (that time we were staying in Delhi) when a little boy came to ask for some money (a usual scene at every railway station).

As I was about to look for some change (coins) in my bag, my son (who was around five years old that time) suddenly gave his Cadburys Celebration Pack to that boy (who seemed to be of the same age) that was gifted to him by his cousins.

Obviously the boy was very happy. But what surprised me more that my son had so many things as gifts from all the relatives in our that trip to Odisha and handed me everything to keep other than that Chocolate Pack as he liked it most. Even when I asked to hold that pack as it was big for him, he didn?t allow me.

What made him to give that pack to that boy is still a mystery to me?

After that I observed both had started playing Hide n Seek as my son was trying to hide himself around me. Both of them were having laughter in their faces.

In the mean time our train came and we boarded it quickly as it halts for few minutes only?my son was throwing tantrums to say Goodbye to that boy. It wasn't possible for us or I may say was not necessary for us.

But when we occupied our berth my son looked from the window glass and started waving his hand to that boy while I observed the boy outside was looking bewilder into the tinted glasses to get a glimpse of my son (it was not possible to see inside from outside).

The bewilder eyes stuck me!!! Is there any difference in his eyes and the eyes of my son??? Not at all...

The difference lies in "my eyes". May be for that reason when I saw him? I saw the rags, the untidy face and the uncared body and felt sympathetic while my son saw his own image (child) in him and felt loving.

That was enough to stir me?

All humans born as child whether die old or not. Childhood is the perfect bliss and everybody is equally given that opportunity by Almighty. It's the source of infinite love, symbol of truth, innocence and simplicity.

With the passage of time we forget the real essence of our humanity?i.e. love. Eventually that cost all our happiness and we get us imprisoned in constant world of conflicts, comparison and stress that develops the bars of differences and hatred. We forget to love which is our natural nature. More or less we live a life of  ?copy and paste? rather than a Natural One.

Then one fine morning we discover ourselves that we forgot to laugh spontaneously.

May be?.. That's the reason why we don't easily clap when we feel nice as that of a child?.who just becomes glad in everything around it.

But it doesn?t take plans to clap our hands?just a brief look into the eyes of a child around us?. will be sufficient to see the image of a child that resides in us?.that will remind our true nature and make us feel love towards the world and towards the mankind.

And that'll automatically make our hands clap?..!!!!!

Isn't it?..!!!

Let a child inspire you and remind you that we are all humans!!!
