Of compassion and class 3 A

“You didn’t eat ur tiffin today ” I asked my son,back home from school while checking his bag. He blurted out:
"Most of us cdn’t eat.You know…Garvit hurt his leg so badly during the games period.Actually his team had won the football match. Jumping and laughing, he fell down near the staircase. He was bleeding.We cd even see his bone and flesh. He was crying, Mummy….Mummy. And then one by one all the children ,boys and gals, started crying.Not very loudly though.
But what shocked me was, Anubhav was laughing and saying Garvit wd stay in hospital for few days and then….(something very nasty).We all gave him a good thrashing .Sab ne mara . Then he sat quietly”.

May this feeling of compassion and the collective effort to keep the anti-social elements in check, stay with them forever .This is what our society needs most today.

PS: No malice towards Anubhav on my part.He is a sweet, naughty and chubby child.

.... and some school frnd left a testimonial on my account saying that my fav. line in school used to be --> "sabki mummy ek jaisi hoti hai"

Oh and it still is another of my fav. ones :D only that now I have refined it more saying, "saari manju ek jaisi hoti hai" (thats my mom!)

And as Silky Moon says, its a part and parcel of life! We wouldn't have grown up so nicely but for our own manjus!

Where do we loose that little bit of us? What corner do we hide it in? How can these kids, a couple of decades later, be capable form walking away from a motor accident without doing anything?

Somethings... cannot be understood.
