“Those were the best days of my life“. How indeed! Now that we are grown up, seeing photographs of our childhood can evoke lot of fond memories – memories that will always be etched in all the cells of our life. Though you can live your childhood only once, you can always relive seeing your own child grow up. Or, it can be any child with its cute little gestures and smiles. Nostalgia sets in, isn’t it?
It is often said that when you grow old, you tend to be living your childhood once again. I do not know how that is true. But i guess, after having lived all these years of one’s worldly life, having attained all the wisdom and enlightenment of how death is the ultimate truth of life, people go back to their fondest memories of their life – childhood. Else, why would we be told that our life is a full cycle?
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you gonna get”. But when you are a child, most of us are sure to get few candies. And as adults, those memories will sweeten your life. But remember, there are many children in this world, whose childhood is not so privileged like ours. Should we not fill their lives also with few ‘candies and chocolates’? Read one such story here.
Aashayein Foundation is one such non-profit organization in India trying to give back dreams to children, kindle hope in their lives, through the medium of education. Show your concern because sharing is caring.
