As all kids, my li'll one who's 5 leaves me ahem ahem wondering many a times. I find myself usually good enough as per her anxiety towards the surroundings and I think I give her satisfactory answers most of the times...thanks to my parents for inculcating this into me...But these innocent minds put up some such questions, which even if I answer spontaneously for her, leave me myself wondering and wandering for the right answer. Today while bathing her, I was just trying to remind her of a mistake she did the last day and was trying to give her valid reason for why do I call it a mistake, because my NOT SO LI'LL one says that she isn't sure most of the times that what she is doing or saying is right or not..then she's deemed to do mistakes and should always be forgiven...smart one haan!! So a one-to-one talk one fine day and a deal between us both that mumma softly reminds you and tells you that this is wrong and you would listen and try to follow WITHOUT CRYING AND TANTRUMS!! So now, back to the bathing....on my reminder, she says mumma daily you have something or the other to tell me...something new for me to know...something old that was wrong as per you...till when will I keeplearning learning learning....I am 5 years and I still don't know...how do I know whether you are right or I was right?! hmmm...Dear...elders are better experienced thats why mumma always asks papa...papa discusses with grandpa and grandma..you see that na...and you are the youngest so we all want you to be the best baby so as all would love you. Mumma are you all still learning?? Yes baby....don't I say sorry to you when I get wrong somewhere, be it having scolded you hard at times...Hmmm....comes her nodding head...with her mind thinking aloud. Mumma, you say God is our Father...our Mother..he made us all..he is the Principal of all Gods...then what are we and why are we....why did he need to make us all?? Sweety, just like you play with your dolls...make them different characters each day, scold them, teach them, love them, dress them ...like mumma does all this to you...so does God , our parent!! Mumma..but you want na that your baby should be best...and God has all the power..why didn't he make all humans best?? This was one that made me go TOIIIING...What do you mean to ask sweety?? Why aren't we born big?? BIG means what baby....?mmmm...BIG means ... mmm... that I would have known what is wrong so as I never go wrong...no one needs to instruct me...no one would scold me..whole world would be my friend....i would not make anyone sad....and you all would not need to keep after me all the time...for all my works!! I hugged her wet....my darling...we all love to do this to you...just like you get bored of a dress...a doll..same toys...just like when you learn an alphabet and you want something new to learn....all mummas love to dress their kids...have fun with them and then see how we sit and recall what we did on some day and rolly polly laugh over it..isn't that fun??!! Yes mumma..comes back a hug!! Mumma...nani also did all this with you? Yes and when you will grow old you too will become someone's nani??sho shweet a question...yes baby I will !! and whoosh came the next - yuhuuu...then there will be a new baby in our house who will callyou nani and I will have a new cousin to play with.... Hmmm....How I learn whats life everyday from my 5 yr old. How she yearns to always be happy and loved, keeping aside all her bad feelings, always willing to be friends with everyone...how she wants not to make anyone sad...whatever may be the true reason...might be wanting to get excused from being corrected for her mistakes....How she managed to challenge the CREATOR, for not making all humans perfect and loving!! Very rightly said Rabindranath Tagore - Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man. God bless all kids , the pure souls.
