I had planned a week off from work and wanted to travel. That plan was blown. Woman proposes and God disposes. QED: God is a man! Anyway, this woman decides to be happy despite God raining on her little plans. So she binge watches more films. This evening it is a beautiful film about a young man who attempts suicide, survives and then is introduced to a school for differently abled children. He enters reluctantly and eventually starts teaching kids there and finds meaning to life there. While watching the film, he plays with the kids, some of them adolescent kids and the smallest, 'silliest' games bring smiles to their faces. Suddenly this adage I had heard in my childhood and younger days popped up in my mind. "Little Things Please Little Minds". Are they really 'little minds"? How does one define 'little things' and 'little minds'? Children with disabilities including genetic abnormalities are not 'less intelligent'. What makes so-called 'normal' people assume they are very intelligent? They are unable to see the ability of these people to enjoy the simple things in life instead of running after material pleasures and ending up perpetually dissatisfied and unhappy. Isn't it time we grew intelligent enough to grow out of hard and fast definitions for every little aspect of life: being active means only physically active. Mentally active people who are not very physically inclined are 'lazy'. Early to bed and early to rise ..... yes, that's right. Leave the night owls out. Everybody must be an early morning bird. Only academic and financial success is defined as such. Well, I guess we as a species have a long way to go before we can really call ourselves 'intelligent' or 'civilized'.
