Learning can even be from childrenNowadays children are very shrewd and elders can learn from them.
*One day I took my brother's daughter out. She asked tender coconut. I took her to a roadside vendor and told to cut two numbers. There a college girl was drinking tender coconut and threw that into the cart without asking for the coconut. My brother's daughter without thinking told me,'why periappa, this Akka wasting the coconut as it cannot be eaten by the Cartman or anybody. Is it not just waste?'. By hearing her word the girl got ashamed and ask the vendor to get the coconut cut. She openly asked sorry to her. The vendor also appreciated the child.
Similar to this many of us wasting the nature's gift.
