Hello Everyone !
Today, I’m republishing a story which I had written for ‘Week – 2 Miracle Challenge’ 2 months back, when I was very much new to WordPress. It was for Challenge no.4 and theme was – CRYING BABY.
Before directing to my fictional story, I would like to ask you few questions to think. If possible, share your answers.
1) What do you think, when you look at a crying baby ?
2) Would you go, pick and try to stop that baby’s cries ?
3) Do you still care even if that baby is unknown to you?
4) What will you do (or did) to a stranger baby in order to stop his/her cry?
Okay. Now, here the story goes :
Yesterday, it was a beautiful morning time. I had been to my usual park meant for joggers and fitness freak people. Now-a-days, old people are more interested in keeping themselves fit than youngsters by practising Yoga.
Among them, there was an old and wise man, who guide everyone towards humanity. We call him with respect as Babaji. That day, he pointed his hands towards a slum area opposite to the park and asked us, “What do you see there?”
An old man responded immediately, “It’s a slum where I see Poverty.”
A teenage fitness freak laughed and replied, “It’s a dirty and stinky Slum.
Few others too replied.
But, Babaji smiled hearing to everyone’s answers, nodding his head with No satisfaction.
A 5 years old girl sadly asked, “Babaji ! Why is that small baby crying?”
Babaji raised his eyebrows and appreciated that little and innocent girl, by patting on her back. He immediately questioned everyone,“I had asked you all to see the entire slum. But how this girl saw something different, which you all didn’t or fail to see?”
Now Babaji replied to the girl, making a clown face to pretend for her age, “Umm. That baby may be looking for her mother or may have got bitten by an insect or may be she wants food or may be water. What do you think?”
The girl said quickly, without thinking, “Instead of discussing here, we should go and ask that baby directly.”
Babaji felt very happy hearing to her wise words and happily shared his thoughts to others, “Have you realized what you are missing to see and feel. This little girl has all her innocence, which we gradually lose growing up.”
He concluded that day’s guidance with a great lesson by giving wise thoughts to other fellow beings towards Humanity. And then replied “Yes, Let’s go.” to the little girl and went to the slum, by holding her muddy soft hands.
Hope you gained from that little girl.
Thank you for reading. Your comments are most welcome 🙂
