A week back I visited Shri Raghunathji temple. A lot of people from different parts of our nation visit our city of temples just to visit holiest of the holy Shri Raghunathji Temple. They really surprise me that how one person is different from the other one be it their physical appearances or their expressions or their acts or their way of speaking or their costumes be it what so ever but everyone is different.
I love to observe people around me. As I did the auspicious viewing and took parikramas I sat there for few minutes to relax myself and watch kids who had come there with their parents. I saw this sweet kid with catty eyes. He passed me and I couldn’t stop smiling. He stopped there. He looked at me for few seconds and then he passed a smile. And believe me that was the most innocent and honest smile I have ever seen, not a touch of sagacity. I cud see that twinkle in his eyes. And writing this down reminds me of that smile. And the very next moment he got busy with some other kid. But he left a deep impression on my mind.
Back at home I thought how pure kids are. They are always natural, frivolous and not at all dogmatic. I like how they gel with anyone who is good to them, to the one from whom they get just a little of affection, they don’t keep grudges for anything, live for the moment. They may be angry with you at a moment and there is all possibility that they are laughing with you in the very next. Another quality which makes kids inviolable is that they are not at all diplomatic. As we grow older a little bit of diplomacy creeps into everyone. The reason for this which I think is that they learn whatever the elders teach them and the saddest part is that we adults are too diplomatic we always keep our needs, our relations upfront not bothering about other persons always looking for our profit. There is always something in back of the mind which prohibits us from doing things the correct way instead there are always questions that why should I do this if it causes me a lot of trouble. So although I said that kids are inviolable, incorruptible but still they are like clay and can be mended into the way we elders mend them.
To be true I always try to be true to myself and to my close friends, I hate it when someone tries to be diplomatic to me. I think in a relation as pure as friendship there should be no diplomacy. One should be true enough a friend to stand against you if you are wrong and to be with you shoulder by shoulder if you need their support. I know that whenever I’ll be wrong my best buddy will be the first person to contradict me or would me my biggest support in the other way around. Enough of these philosophies of mine I don’t want you people to get bored of reading my blog post so I’ll stop here.
After all this I thought about my childhood and how good it was. Although I remember it in a nebulous way and I enjoyed remembering those lovely peerless moments of my life.
