a change for the better

As time passes, there are some changes in us, our environment. Some changes are of the preconcievable type, while the others are not.

Most times, i am trapped to think that a present situation will continue forever. Be it that which brings a smile on our face. Or something which induces tears in our eyes. I often forget that we live in a very dynamic world. That which changes quite rapidly.

It's quite stagnant, that way. We crave for things to differ a little. For the better. With regard to the oh so wonderful! things that fascinate us.

On the other hand, it's fine for variety to be present. It helps us in becoming flexible, to learn new tricks. To face and survive a wide range of conditions that poses before us, every other day. To let things happen, to gain joy from it.

B had come home the other day. I was quite strict with her. 'B, don't touch my pencil, my books.' She quite respond to my demands. I, later, told her the same things, with a smile on my face. The response was instantaneous. How i regretted my sternness.

I still love the infant B. Her laughs, her confused words. Those days are past me. But, i look forward into the future, trying to imagine her in the coming days. Again, innovations occur, both in me and in her. For the better, of course. Modifications takes place. I should get used to them. I would like look forward to them.

All the best for the approaching New Year! May pleasant modulations take beautiful shapes!

Inshallah!

hi mouna, wish you a happy new year. yes, Most of the times we think of a rapid change in the society to occur. but, sometimes even when that ball of change comes to our court we fail to recognise & at a later time we repent ourself for not being a part of that change. I strongly believe in the Mahatma gandhi's statement 'Be the change that you wish to see in the world'. I feel like, if at all there is anything like constant in the world, then that is change.

u r lucky u got infant B who is a lovable child but all infants are not alike. some are very mischievous and we can't blame them we must take care of our belongings in such cases to ensure we don't loose something precious being broken. parents of such mischievous child can also give hint to their hosts about the nature of the child and to be cautious. at the same time we should not stop the curiosity of the child who knows on one fine future day may be a great genious.
good thoughs good ideas and let us hope all will lead for childs development and will not harmful to the host it must meet both ends.
what are your views.

prasanna,
happy new year to you too! :)

dinu,
those carefree days *sigh* *sigh*

pranesh sir,
true. by curbing the child, one kills the curiosity of the child. sadenning! i guess, one should help curiosity develop towards a constructive idea. i've seen parents being strict with their kids, the innocent curiosity dies down in the process.
