One fine day, while I was travelling from my hometown to the Gateway of South India; okay let me explain a little about myself. I live in Kerala and am a person who loves to travel having keen observing power. Now, let me continue with the incident that happened during my travel. I noticed a small cute girl near my seat and, I was observing her for quite a long time and, to be frank, she was quite different from other kids. The train halted at Thrisur, a city in Kerala and the girl was looking out through the window. All of a sudden, she called out “Uncle”, with a bottle of water in her hand. When everyone else looked out through the window, what we saw actually, surprised us. A man wearing shabby clothes was trying to get water from a tap. His face expressed that he had a tiring day and was badly in need of water and unfortunately, the water flow was slow which made him wait for a long time. The heroine, the cute little girl, of this incident saw this man and showed an act of kindness. This opened the eyes of each of us. We all realized the fact behind the statement “Child is the father of man”. The girl did it because she knew the value of Sharing.
Now, think about how different we are from that little girl. I am pretty sure that if it had been you or me, we would think ‘Why can’t he buy some water’ or we will just leave it hanging in air without taking any steps forward. This shows the quality of life we live when compared to that kid. We never know what is in store for us for the rest of our lives. Life is like a plain thread, we don’t know the length and width of the thread, and also we are the ones who decide the colour of the thread. Once when the thread is cut, none will know about our existence, if we live a normal life. But think about living a life by sharing for each other, you will remain forever a colourful thread in their hearts.
Take a family into consideration where the husband and wife are having two children. Parents who actually think about inculcating values into their children’s life will think differently while buying something for them. One might be given a colouring book as a birthday gift and the other might be gifted with colour pencils. It is the children who have to share that stuff and be happy by taking turns in finishing off the pages of the colouring book. Likewise, in life, we, humans are provided with different circumstances or situations where we might need to share with others in order to obtain a successful outcome for whatever we try out.
The satisfaction you receive when you share with your fellow human beings is something that should be experienced at least once in everyone’s life. Think about the situation where someone is sharing something for you, I am pretty sure that you will be having smile in your face. The same smile can be there is everyone’s face if we all try to live by sharing. So, let’s try bringing smiles to people who live around us, by sharing!
Share and Smile, Souls!
