Special child



She was not beautiful or attractive, neither was she a celebrity but something was there in her face that captivated me. Today evening while ordering burger at Mcdonalds, this girl was behind me with her mother and was trying to come in front of me. She was laughing and trying to say something to me. But before I responded, her mother took her away. She was a special child (which anybody could make out) and was an Indian. What impressed me most, was the thing her mother was looking so confident and not ashamed of her child. At least, the parents are trying to behave normal and allowing there daughter to live a normal life.
I still remember when I was in school my friend's brother was not normal and her mother kept him in a locked room. We were not allowed in her house and while crossing their house. he used to wave hand and scream and laugh - a kind of house arrest.
Why the parents are ashamed of their child? Just because he/she is little different from others. None of us is perfect and are impaired someway or the other. Let us not idolize perfection but compassion and treat each other normal. Life is different and enjoyable because of the diversity it offers. We as humans are bound to be different from each other and not clones. Please be human. Love humans.

Sentiments

Since noon I had this strange feeling of fear and tension as if something bad is going to happen. I tried to keep my self busy, told myself 100 times "No Sneha, No! don't worry ! sab thik hai". I wanted to call home to confirm but thought they must be sleeping, so i waited till evening and as the clock stuck 7, I called home and dad was on the line. Mom and dad ki awaj sunnney key baad, I felt so relaxed. Then I had my lunch & dinner- sab ek saath :). And my roomie stupid female, Miss "S"(very understanding and kind-hearted) got a chance of making fun of me. Even I was laughing with her now. But those 5-6 hours were like hell.
Why are we always worried for our dear and near ones?
Is it because we don't want to lose them ?
Are we insecure?
But i think we love them so much that we don't want to see our self without them? Whether they live with us or not, we want to see them happy. No matter from how much pain we are going through, but we always want to see our loved ones to be tension- free and happy.

Limping Mind - A Nature's Gift

He was imitating her walk(she limps) and making remarks without thinking she still has ears and eyes. He thinks himself to be a quipster. Always tries to be different from others. The so-called Almighty has blessed him with health, wealth, knowledge and a limping mind. So naturally its not his fault, its his God's fault.

When God was creating people and giving mind to everybody, He saw him and thought let me make him different from others by all means, so I should give him a limping mind. So he will be different in all means. And for such 'different people' -

Pascal says: “Why is it that a limping person does not irritate us but a limping mind does, very much? A person who limps sees that the rest of us walk straight. A limping mind, on the other hand, believes it is we who limp.”

So I dedicate this post to all the 'DIFFERENT PEOPLE'.
