Watch the world in Child's way


This happened few years back. I was travelling by train to my native place with my husband. There was a family consisting of a mother, a father, grandparents and a child of about 1 to 1 1/2 years in the seats in front of us.

The child was awake for a long time. It had a smiling face and looked like it was enjoying its trip in the train which was rocking like a jhoola. The mother slept while making her child go to sleep. But the child was awake. I enjoyed watching for sometime, the child playing in the darkness making some sounds and soon i also fell asleep. 

I was woken up by a sound. Looked at my watch and it was 3.30 am and was dark outside. To my surprise i saw the child awake. (Did it staye awake throughout the night? or woken up early?) It was looking out through the window, happily clapping its hands, making sounds as if it is speaking to someone outside the moving train.

The entire compartment was asleep, no toys to play, no light to see any scenaries outside, parents were asleep, no mates to play. Still the child was happily playing.

How nice life would be, if we have a child’s heart. No egos, no wants, no greeds, no worries… even with nothing, the heart will be content. Yes, life will become pleasant if we have a child’s heart. We will love everyone around us, the known and the unknown. That’s why a child is like a God, who loves everyone, the good and the bad.

I wish I were a child….

Dear Mira,
I remember the old song of Rafi" Hum be agar bache hote naam hamara hota babblu-gaballu aur khane ko milthe laddoo..." Very cute of the child to be a guarding angel to all the people in the compartment.

hi mira,

such a wonderful snippet. watching a baby can help occupy one's hours so pleasantly. watch a baby and all your troubles melt away.

they are complete within themselves. they don't need any outside diversion. they are truly in touch with their own divine nature. that is why they are considered a manifestatiion of god.

very irrational wish, but i always wish babies would remain babies and never grow up beyond 3 years of age. :-)

Yes, that masoom wil vanish when they grow. That's why we can admire & love any baby but not all grown ups. Despite your pains, you have paid a visit and given your comments too. Thanks Satchi.
