Little Things...

T
oday I want to ask you something...

Do you feel attached to little things in life? I mean do you hold strong emotions towards certain things and because of which you are still treasuring them... Unmindful of the passage of time... Regardless of how old you are now...

Why I am asking this, I don’t know...
What prompted me to ask this, I really don’t know...

But I just wish to know...

Do you still cherish that uniform you wore to your school... That first pencil box gifted by parents... That first doll... That first gift from your loved one... That li’l keychain... The mobile phone that you bought after saving for what seemed like an eternity... That anklet and bangle that you wore as a child... That old sketchbook... All those diaries holding your immature scribbling... That pen with which you wrote that exam which changed your life and identity forever...

That wristwatch... That black metal chain... That silver ring... That green colored hair ribbon we wore to school... That pair of sunglasses we wore as a child... That tiny little pink shoes which makes noise when we started walking for the first time... That first poem dedicated to our parents... That rakhi from our sister...

Yes... I really want to know; rather I persuade you think...
Do you still hold something like this... Something very special... Something so special that though it is ragged and rusted remains as the most cherished possession...

Strain your brows and put on your thinking cap... The more you think the more things will come in mind...

Alas!
There might also be some objects that mommy threw away as a part of cleaning home... That you misplaced something... That you angrily threw away... Something that broke or got damaged...

There may be many such items... Things that were a part of our daily lives once... Things that was a part of us... Things without which we never used to leave house... Without which we seemed to be incomplete...

Oh! The list seems endless...
The joy seems boundless...

Little things these are... Yet hold so immeasurable value...

Cherish them...
Celebrate life!

PS: Wishing you all a very happy Republic Day… Praying that we all stay united in spite of diversity and that sooner or later emerge as a Super-power!
Jai Hind!
