Merry Childhood

Ever looked back and thought how far have we come ? Not just in development’s perspective , but as a being ? Yes, every being does develop but still remains mostly the same through the core . Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 95 . So i ask myself , does age really matter as to who you are deep inside ?

I’m still a kid , logically as well from deep inside . I remember THE STUFF . The things we used to do when we were small . All those very simple yet enjoyable birthday parties with decorations on the wall and hats even on the eldest person’s head . The running and playing throughout the day , whenever , wherever . Sleeping , eating and then repeating this whenever in want . Eating dust off the walls and the chalks to playing with those plastic toys . I have these beautiful memories deeply engraved in me and i personally never want to let go of them .

There’s this beauty , this innocence ,  honesty , integrity , charisma , energy , kindness and so much more for which to explain i fall short of words . I still love it when i do the very same , get carefree , enjoy , laugh all day , smile , play , etc. and i still ask my parents for one of those remote controlled cars . I don’t think that loosing the child in you is worth anything .

I met this kid who is a communal rag picker , i smiled at him , just as i explained in my previous write up , he smiled back at me and walked towards me . I shook hands with him , sat down for a couple of moments . His name was Jumnam and was from a nearby slum to which they call as ” Basti wala ghar ” . He was very cute and innocent was merely 10 and as skinny as it gets . But he had the child in him alive even after working through the day  in this scotching  heat and miserable conditions , he was happy ! Joyful , smiling , laughing  .

I think that being young , being alive , having that kid in you , those moments , that energy , laughter and smile is all it takes to be happy , maybe ? Being a kid at heart is not to be mistaken with being immature , there’s a fine margin between these two things . All i ask is , can we be children again and live like there’s no tomorrow ?

Close your eyes , but open them too . Calm your mind , but use it too . Save your soul but let it live too !

Smile ∞

It’s funny , it’s sad , it’s amusing . Sometimes a genuine one or maybe a forced one ? Could be friendly , could be wicked , it’s a smile playing with a background music of crickets .

How a smile can change the world , your’s or theirs is not a very different matter . It is the one thing that’s highly underrated , ignored , and not valued . Sometimes mistaken for a different message , sometimes not ?

It’s really a powerful weapon . Smiling for a moment or a couple of them would really make you forget all the worries , all the mayhem that’s right now going on in your mind , all the thinking and processing stops , just for a moment and we indulge completely  in the time  of this happiness and it’s cause . Isn’t that too simple in order to live in the moment ?

Randomly smile , for your own self , because you’re doing great , because after everything you had the courage to smile , because it brings so much into the picture of life .  I sometimes standing in the traffic , randomly smile at others who i accidentally make a contact with , most of them smile back at me and its really a joyous moment . Spreading happiness and joy doesn’t take much ! At this moment the only thing separating us ( the ones who are smiling ) is the medium between us , nothing else . All the differences , even the fact we might not know each other fades away and we connect. For a moment or two we both just smile at each other like there’s nothing else in the world and there’s nothing to worry about .

I think it’s one of the most beautiful things . The most ever ready pill of happiness and joy . Something that’s full of life and emotions .

Look up in the sky , see , feel , pass , indulge , add , live ! Displaying and spreading ; kindness , love , happiness , serenity , beauty and peace could get so simple wouldn’t be sought of.  Do it quite often ? Everyone could get the fruit !

Close your eyes , but open them too . Calm your mind , but use it too . Save your soul , but let it live too !

Nature ? Nature.

We don’t care much , now do we ? Let it all go , let it all flow . But why so unattended ?

How does a day become a good day or a bad one ? Most say it depends on the activity ;  partially yes ! Mostly ? NO.

Everything around us is joy – able ,  is a thing of beauty . The dawn breeze , the chirping of the birds , the haze , the chills , the freshness , the energy ! It all started with the day , i didn’t forcefully include it . Only if one could realize and actually feel the vibes and goosebumps on our body’s , wouldn’t we be more alive ?

This carry’s forward through the day , the smallest of the air and temperature changes , the sounds and noises , the love and harmony , don’t they all sing like a symphony ? The dots all connect ! Through the day , there’s so much to enjoy , so much to embrace , so much to value , but do we ? Yes , I’m still talking about the joy and love given to us by our nature at the mere cost of attention and living in the moment . Only if we could feel !
