This is one of my stories in Instagram today. I shared it from another account I am following.
It is such a beautiful message and more an intention for this day. A poke in the direction of love.
Among all the running around we do everyday, we just forget these small gestures of acknowledging or reciprocating a good will.
Here I am, actually showcasing art by my nieces in a way of telling them about how proud this aunt is! Its my way of expressing my love for them. When I bring them into my space aka my blog, its a show of my love.
So here it goes:
This picture drawn by my niece blew me! I was stunned at her representation of the sun as a woman. All along the image that comes to my mind is Sun God driving his chariot of seven horses. Here she has celebrated womanhood. The sun rays are like her hair. And those figurines that dance around represent the joy that sunshine gives. Isn’t it amazing!! Sending this little one loads of love from this athai❤
And this beautiful painting of Krishna is by another niece. Am a big fan of her quiet and strong personality. She has her way of doing things and I admire her inquisitiveness and curiosity to learn. Her smile is her biggest asset which gets things done for her! Sending this tall girl who is aiming on becoming the tallest in the family, all the love from this perima ❤
And then there is this cute little bunny rabbit, who is a beautiful girl with the wisdom of sages living amongst us and imparts her knowledge in her own ways!
This is a conversation between her and her father:
We have been giving my daughter, goat leg soup made at home, as prescribed by her doctor. I reguarly go to buy legs from a local butcher. Assuming that she may not like to see animals being butchered, I have never taken her along. Today, due to unavoidable circumstances, she was pulled along. Not being able to stand the smell from the shop, she chose to stand 20 meters away in shade of a tree, waiting for me to collect the legs. I collected, we came home and were lying down, discussing our outing. She started to speak (not that she ever stops 😜 )…
She: Appa, they were killing that chicken in front of my eyes, I could not see that. How can they do that? It is such a poor creature. Killing it is like killing you.
Me: How is that?
She: It is all the same life in everyone.
She: It is the one same big life that is there is small pieces in everyone
Me: (Swallowing my shock of her understanding of this truth) So?
She: came out these words in absolute confidence – “Hence, there is no difference in life, it is all the same. I could be a girl, you could be a boy, it could be a chicken, but life is all one!”
Me: True! If only the world understands it the way you do….
Now, isn’t that wise?! She is a beautiful child filled with love for people around her and am so much in awe of her story telling and creative writing skills. Maybe she will author some amazing book one day! Sending this dear girl lots of love from athai❤
Guess what? Am so happy now. With these small messages and words of appreciation to three little girls, I feel that my intention for today is beautifully done. I hope they get to see this post from me where I have tried to express my love for them.
