At times, when you are not doing something so called meaningful, meaningful things happen.
Just noticed, that a kid has kept on crying for more than 10 minutes in a nearby apartment.
Don’t really know the reason, but makes me wonder whether that’s how future is going to be for most of the kids with the kind of education system we have in place.
An education system which kills all curiosity and an ability to question would surely lead our kids and thereby society in that direction.
Not just kids, we adults are often found to be crying over one thing or the other,
Be it the boss screwing us up today with shit load of work,
Simply being unable to handle different challenging situations at different points of time in our lives,
Which takes us back to the crying kid,
The crying kid was catered to in a manner so that he/she would be able to manage his/her state of mind,
Adult stakeholders (parents, relatives, teachers, siblings etc),
Providing him/her the tools to be able to do so,
Giving him/her enough time and attention which was needed to just hear them out,
Being that eternal friend, philosopher and guide that he/she might be craving for,
Most importantly, not imposing our own grown up expectations on the kid,
Would the crying kid grow up to become the crying adult?
Well, chances are less, though one can always argue on the pretext of one’s destiny.
But wasn’t destiny about taking control of our own lives, I wonder!
