I couldn’t resist the urge of popping those air-filled bubble wrappers of the new oven, so did my mom. With a mighty effort the cover was pulled out from underneath the oven and the heavenly pop sounds those bubbles made when you pressed it; Aha! Mom did it with so much enthusiasm that I almost thought she wouldn’t cook me dinner.

“I’m hungry.” I half murmured to myself. “Go take the food, it’s right on the gas top” she said still thoroughly engrossed on the air-bubbles.

“Can you please go take it? I will help you popping those.” I said snatching it from her. “Wait.” She said, “Inky pinkie ponkey father had a donkey, donkey died father cried inky pinkie ponkey. Yes! That’s you!” and she took it back.

Bah! It was a trick up my sleeve that I used on some urgent instances like this. If I took my turn to tot up I knew right where the count would stop, so I always won the best place.

On the walk to the kitchen, I tallied up my views and decided that adults are no better than kids.

On our children’s day at school, teachers performed completely like children that I made up my mind never to judge anyone by their looks. Just because they are tall and have lines of mustache growing, it doesn’t mean they are so grown-up.

I couldn’t help asking myself the same question that raise upon millions of young minds……. Why do they scold us, if this small part of child does exist in them?

It’s simply that they cannot see the funny part of everything that we children can. Sometime they forget that this world has no complications if you look to its humorous part. That’s where kids come into action.

Some things that makes children special-

  • Kids are completely nuts
  • They are too busy to butt into others matters.
  • They are too innocent to take anything seriously.


If we are too busy to even enjoy the small aspects that come and go, then life is useless. “Learn to live, live to learn” I add a small part to this quote, “Learn to live LIKE KIDS, live to learn LIKE KIDS.”

Unleash that naughty little part in you and enjoy life to its fullest.


BELATED HAPPY CHILDREN’S DAY n sorry for the delay.

എല്ലാവരിലും ഒരു കുട്ടി ഉറങ്ങിക്കിടക്കുന്നുണ്ട്. അത് അവരറിയാതെ ചില സന്ദർഭങ്ങളിൽ പുറത്തേക്കു വരുന്നു. A good write up shreya.


Even if we grow up the child is still in us. Actually at some stage we think why we grew up. The child stage is best one in life. So all children should enjoy each and every moment. Happy children’s Day dear
