Sometimes we gape in awe at instincts of little ones. Kids are really the phenomenal driving factors behind merriment that exists behind each face, busy in the monotonous routines. They have their own ways of enjoying the little occasions, which the grownups naturally tend to ignore, if they incur one at all. It must be easy for the audience to recall the incidents when little five to six years old one behave as mature persons, letting us give a broad smile at ease and innocence they find at such tasks.

Learn from the kids, they know the good things

Even small acts of kindness can make a great change.
Even small acts of kindness can make a great change.

We were in a mall in London on a shopping spree. It was customary for the families to leave the kids in the children’s care section while they managed their way through the richly displayed wares. In the meanwhile, the children themselves had their fill rumbling through the toys lying all around to play with. I was about to leave my younger sister, Nitika, there, where suddenly I chanced upon an old friend. In order to catch-up, we decided that I could stay back with him on account of watching over Nikita. She was already playing with a train set in the middle. Everyone got on their ways. We were just talking, when she suddenly got up abruptly in the middle of her play, walked up to a small boy looking at the miniature ship. They both looked at each other. She bent down on her knees, brought her hands forward and skillfully tied the shoe-laces of his that were dangling loose. Having done so, she got up. They both stared at each other for a while. Nobody said a word. He smiled a little. She smiled back and they both parted. We were stood watching this.

Helping other is sign that we love humanity

See these people who help others

“So, she can tie shoe-laces?” my friend asked. He was dumbstruck.
But I had my own reasons for being the same. “She just learned it yesterday!”I whispered to him.
It was really confusing. Isn’t it amazing how these kids help each other with no intention of getting anything back? They have their own ways of silent conversations. But the question is that can the grownups too reach that level of maturity these small ones show quite unknowingly. When they can do this while being least aware of it, why can’t we? Kindness costs us nothing. We can do anything from helping an aged cross the road to giving some alms to the poor and downtrodden. These small acts of kindness can make a big change. These actss can make the world a better place to live it. Let's all pledge today the we all shall try, at least in smmall substantial measures, to help others so that every human could feel that humanity is still alive in our world.

Will you implement this moral of helping others?
