A child's message to the onlookersThere are onlookers almost everywhere. Whether it's a city bustling with activities or a village, you will find a lot of people crowded around some happenings. The happenings may be an altercation between two, certain mishap, the law enforces chasing a criminal and so on. One interesting thing I remember happened a long ago when I was a child. I was in a relative's place and playing with one of my cousins inside the house. The house was adjacent to a park though the entire park was not visible from the house. We noticed a crowd around a portion of the park and with time the crowd became thicker. We went nearby and witnessed a funny incident. A goat and a dog were fighting heavily inside the park. At that time, there was no smart mobile devices to take a picture of the incident and post it somewhere in social media though a lot of people were seen enjoying and cheering up the fighters. The situation has not changed much now. Even when people need help in public places there are many who will just look at the person without offering any help. It is always important to help someone in distress and we must move forward in such situations. We all know this but when it comes to application, many do hesitate. Even a child is very much aware of the situation which is reflected in the behaviour which was witnessed recently. Two children were cycling in a particular lane where four-wheelers are not allowed. One child fell from the bicycle while the other moved ahead. Realising the fall of his friend the child went back to help his friend. At that moment a man was passing by and asked the child how he is. The child retorted, "What are you looking at? Can't you help my friend who just fell down? How can I help him alone?"
That's an important message for all.
