When the child’s eyes sparkle it makes the whole place brightMany of us would have lighted sparklers in the latest Diwali spraying light and warmth around. I am going to write about a real sparkle which lights human minds around.
Have you ever seen a child's eye sparkle on occasions? You can se stars sparkle in a child's eyes and it simply goes 'viral' and lights up all good adults around. That sparkle is simply 'infectious'. Hose who get to sees such sparkle more are blessed.
Every child is born innocent. With clean and pure mind and body. It has only the finest basic human sentiments like affection, kindness empathy etc. That is why in our Indian tradition we consider and treat children akin to gods and infant Lord Krishna is revered.
Unlike adults who are attracted and enamoured by costly gadgets and possessions, children become happy with small toys, playing friends and touching still smaller infants and fondling baby animals. They want and happy in little little things. As the film song goes 'Chinna chinna Aasai'
Next time just watch and understand when the real sparkle comes in a child's eyes-Is it when they get a candy, a new dress in their birthday, a new pencil, pen, crayon, etc. -it varies from person to person, time to time.
But the most wide eyed sparkle I have seen in a child is when its parents, especially the mother coms back after being away for some time and hugs it. Recall from your own experience.
By our empathy, kindness and good deeds let us bring out real sparklers everyday around us.
