The cutest things...

I hope I never grow too old or too tired to appreciate an infant's toothless grin..

I am crazy about kids and some of my fondest memories are associated with them..

I remember on my birthday last year when I was in Pizza Hut,Sector 18 ,Noida with my friends..
I was dancing on a chair ( abiding by the traditions of Pizza Hut)
a little boy tugged at my jeans when I had undergone the torture..
when I got down-he kissed me on my cheeks and gave me a red rose..
That was probably one of the best birthday gifts I ever had... :)

And another time ..at Mc Donald's ,Sector 15..I had gone for a quick grub after class with a friend..
a little girl dressed in a yellow frilly frock came with her mother..with her hair tied in two ponies..in yellow ribbons.. falling in soft curls..somehow she reminded of me when I was a kid..

She looked so adorable..I couldn't resist her..I asked her mother if I could touch her
Sitting next to her.. as gently as I could ran my fingers on her soft cheeks..
She did the same!!
With her little hands ..
That felt like Heaven!

Another cute kid I saw in a sweet shop..hardly able to walk by herself..she ambled ...out of the shop..to explore the world on her own
Thank God I was looking ..coz her parents lost track where she was ..busy purchasing something..I showed them the way she went..
They thanked me..but I wanted to thank them for having begotted such an angel..
When outside ...I found her showing her Dad..another kid abt her age..or maybe older
She pointed at him and said
Babby!
I just wanted to take her home with me..well..I did ..clicked a pic of hers..N I still have it..

But the best one was probably the time when I was in a party n had just finished singing a song..
Barely 3 years old..he clapped...
The best applause I ever had..

the only unrelated memory that comes to my mind is if a child who was not having his food.. i was walking by..his/her mom pointed her index finger towards me and the next moment the the kid was behaving..

:-(

@Shashi
u had me in splits..lol

somehow tht kid reminded me of a nurshery rhyme

Georgy Porgy, pudding and pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry.
When the boys came out to play,
Georgy Porgy ran away.


Just imagine..he's so charming at this age..what a stud he'll grow up to be..

( I wonder whr he got tht rose from..[:-/])

Shashi Rajasekaran said...

as for the rose..the source was the same as the kiss..

that much i am sure..:-P

I had a number of bitter memories as well which i would like to share. This is not to make you sad but to add another angle. I was in golden temple express on the day prior to Diwali Last Year 2005. I jst settled and i saw a very sweet boy just around 8 years old came to poslish my boot. I put off my shoes and gave him to polish ( I never want any body to touch my feet for polishing my shoe as i feel it as an act of looking down at some one). In the mean time i asked the boy abt his family. He told he has two young brother and sister whom he send to school by fetching some money thhrough this business. His mother was ill. I asked him whether he is celebrating diwali or not as it was very late in the night around 9:30 or so. He told he will if he will able to collect 100 rupees to buy food and medicine for her mother. I was really overwhelmed. he was just a kid of 8-9 years and so much concern abt his siblings and mother. I was touched and no doubt he was among the most beautiful child i had ever seen.
My eyes became really wet..and when he left i cud was feeling shame on me that i live in a society that cann't provide education to thius small kid. I gave him 150 ruppees to help him out but i think this is not the permanent solution. If you really love children come out work for them. I am planning to start something a sort of a small group which will be indulged in providing education to them. Join hands.

@Vijay
U have mine...
something of this sort happened to me whn I went to Faculty of Arts,DU to take my FMS exams..
I had company who was rather rude coz the boy took a liking to me n we started chatting..I felt bad..guilty..
the same guilt I feel when I see children in ragged clothes in front of Mc.d's fighting for a cast away ice cream cone..
But I guess I choose not to see..
n no one can be more blind..
a silent tear..n I forget them ...
n life goes on...

i wholeheartedly agree!!...A child's innocence and cuteness has never ceased to amaze me! I can keep playing all day long with kids and apart from them, pets!! :)
