It’s an important day today. Children’s Day, by far, is the most relevant occasion that has been passed on to us. At whatever age or place we are in, two things we all can think of on this day…
— Raising a human life, is it even my cup of tea?
— If I have one in my hands, am I subjecting my child to be me or my idea of perfect?
For the first one, if the answer is no. That’s honesty.
If the answer is yes, definitely you are better than many. So just a thought – how about making someone else’s mistake right. Bringing home who has already come to the world. Obviously, it’s a hard irreversible tabooed choice that can change your life dramatically. Yet, for someone who is confident of raising a human life, may be the next distance that can be thought about being covered is to make such a choice.
So what Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have done ain’t a branding tactic. They have made it big. They can afford raising many children. How many who can afford have the heart to do it! Even if, deep inside, their biological children hold a dearer place, they are giving home care, education, family time, warmth and their wealth. All of this is better than that child having got none of it ever at all. Heartwarming : )
And for the second question, just being able to face that question is enough. Lol.
Thing for the day
Favourite childhood memory is wearing lotsa bangles, chunky chan-chan payals, with a dupatta clad like a sari. Two favourite girls are named Desire and they love bangles. Keeping them in mind, that’s the thing today.
