To me Childhood is a stage like “Ignorance is bliss” and where you
aren’t exposed enough to the harsh realities. The world appears to be a
very good place.
When we reach adulthood, like it was said, all this innocence gets lost
and we get to face a harsh and a stern test with reality.
Then you reach a stage of saturation where you get to feel that you can
get the good things out of life and ignore the bad. So this feeling can
again drive us back to childhood days, the difference is that we have
attained an understanding. So we would start to cherish those lighter
moments and ignore the bad ones.
In the old Tamil movie “Babu” there is a song which pictures the
goodness of being a Child. The last stanza of the song goes Thus:-
Poopondra nenginilum Mullirikkum Boomiyada
Pooladha Ulagamada poonnagaiyum Veshamada
Nandri ketta naigalada Naan arintha Padamada
Pillaiyai Irunduvittal Illai oru Thunbamada!!!!!!!.........
Nobody can remain a child throughout his life. I know it’s not possible
to go back into your sweet childhood days again, but you can definitely
cheer your life with those lovely memories. Let us cherish our Childhood
memories and seek the grace of Bhagawan from now on, Love the work we
do, and enjoy doing all our activities for attaining bliss.
