Child is the Father of Man

Children are giggles of our lives and epitomize innocence, love and tenderness. Many of us think and write about how to educate our children the best so that they navigate better future as excellent leaders and persons, but amazingly they have the magical powers to be our best teachers. I experienced the same recently during my Bali excursion.

Advay, walking talking angel of 1 year and ten months  updated my outdated childhood. During the journey to Bali his flawless smile removed all our exertion and his own language of some hinter land bridged his world with our world of communication. His twinkling eyes with that glint brightened our day and made many unwanted and troublesome worries take a back seat. We were his age, oblivion to diplomatic and manipulative world of adults. Moment that I seized to cease all my squirmy struggling thoughts. The impact is still travelling.

His puckish calling " Ma'am...." still echoes in my mind as it has coined his blether as so meaningful that I find a miss with best orators even. His kingly amble legged our curiosity and interest in the world so serene. At the time of lows also he taught me to recuperate quickly and throw smile to the spectators of our voyage of life, after all halts just become past as soon as we leave them and go on with all new of us.

"Child is the Father of Man", rightly said by William Wordsworth. Small child gave me lesson of life to be child like and to be free of all the manacles which stop us to be what we are......The child within us keep taking birth to face the world so hard.

Advay tutored me to child everything which comes as obnoxious  monster in our lives......the best lesson I learnt for my life.
