Happy Childrens Day…..yeah!!!

“The essence of childhood, of course, is play,

which my friends and I did endlessly on streets that we reluctantly shared with traffic.”

Running in the race

 

This picture reminds me how fragile childhood can be….like wet soil – it will take the shape you mould it in; which is why we should as adults should be extra careful of what we teach our kids. Today it is a simple running race in the alley, tomorrow it will be a rat race of life…. a race for success,money,position, fame. We need to direct them to run towards happiness, humility and self-esteem rather than mere materialistic stuff.

Nothing says it better than this quote….totally apt:

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves,

allow them to be strong,

allow them to experience life on their own terms,

allow them to take the subway…let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
