" End of the Year...A NEW BEGINNING !! "
News India : Year-End Resolve , 2008!, 29th December, 2008, India News !
Children, in our lives always bring in 'new beginnings'of hope and understanding. What we learn in our childhood becomes a way of life tomorrow.
This was years ago. As a child while I could read an English Enid Blyton book in one hour, I could not write a correct Hindi sentence even in two hours ! I tried, my parents tried..but, Hindi seemed beyond me. Then one day, my parents took me for a late night movie show. The next day, while I could not understand anything of the movie, I was to everybody's wonder singing all the songs of the movies correctly and in full tune. My father immediately enrolled me in the music school in Lucknow for Kathak dance and vocal classical singing. I had absolutely no problem in the rendering of the music or understanding the soft naunces of classical music. I improved radically in my Hindi and was no longer afraid of the alphabets. As I grew up, I used this practice with my own children in making them understand and study any tough subjects by using their passion for any hobby. My children love animals and today, are very 'environment conscious' young citizens as at a young age, I taught them to co-relate animals to environment.
All of us have different passions and love for living. What seems difficult for some, might be easy for others. This coming year resolve yourself to understanding and appreciating your child, your friends and your family. Try to build up a better relationship and help people to reach their goals by co-relating their passions with what they find difficult to do. It will go a long way in creating a 'Better World' !
