Childhood Simplicity

December 6 2011

Little Pranav, my friend's son, all of 4 years, attended his first sports day at school, where all the kids participated in various sports activities and regardless of their victory or loss, every child was awarded a medal as an appreciation of their participation. I was amused to know that Pranav refused to take off his medal, proud that he was of his achievement. He wore the medal the entire day and even went to sleep wearing it.

This took me back by about 24-25 years when I, a little boy at that time, had had a similar experience. 

As kids, we valued such simple joys and were proud of our little achievements. Today, we are more materialistic and fail to find happiness in the simple joys of life. I miss those days!!
