eing a child is one of the most fun-filled journeys. You agree, you quarrel, you question, you adjust, you compensate, you love, you forgive, you all together do a lot of tasks. A child’s life starts once he steps into this beautiful world, a world full of emotions and laughter, a world of sorrow and pain, a world of hunger and fate. While you pass through all the situations, you tend to become more sensible. You really sense things now! You encourage yourself, you boost your spirit, you enhance your aim. you do a lot of good things.
But a real and rare story goes like the phases of the moon. As the moon gradually increases day by day, becomes larger and larger and at the last phase of its life, the moon becomes splendid. We enjoy watching the full moon, capturing it through some real lens, right? But have you ever thought about why people love the full moon so much? Nah! It’s not about attractiveness, it’s about the growth, the responsibility, the ability to become on it’s own. Similarly, a child too reaches his very age and the child reacts to himself now. The child stands on his feet and no longer needs a holding hand, the child comes out of a dependent world and enters an independent one. The child learns the body language, the mechanism, revisits his colleagues, asks and enquires about their achievements.
Every one, be it a small or a great achievement, proudly chants,” I made it.” It’s not just about getting good degrees and higher levels of education, it’s about the learning phase you have gone through- not just academically, but also socially and emotionally. All those little little pieces of advice, those cute little words, those beautiful moments, those emotional scenes, those happy days, those sorrowful memories and lastly those crazy adventures.

The child now calls himself an adult, capable of handling his own children. And I think this is one of the finest responsibility which indeed is the very first step towards progression. You tend to analyze and explore new ways, new words, new habits, and inculcate them in your children. This way, they too become happy.
And you manage your job along with your kids, you provide ample time to them, you hardly get to rest, no matter if it goes on becoming hard and hard but eventually it’s what makes you a good, understandable person. You provide qualitatively along with quantitativeness and instill a sense of pride in your kids. Same as your parents used to do for you. Look, while you were a kid, you had no clue, no experience about it. Once you stepped into this field, you recall all the sacrifices your parents had gone through just to make you stand what you are today. Being a child is not just a phrase but an emotion attached to every soul.
A child with a lot of memories turns into a man with a lot of responsibilities, a child who used to mess up over non-veg and veg ends over the preference of “ Jo mile ga, wahi kha lenge”, a child who used to quarrel with his siblings turns to become a man of dignity and self- honor, a child who used to play all day long, unfortunately keeps on doing office work till bedtime, a child who used to chill and gather around with his friends has no time left for people to gossip, a child who used to wear new and branded clothes, today roams around in office suit only, a child who used to break the things in his house, tends only to concentrate on making things go right today. And my dear readers, the child who used to express a lot, ends up summarizing words now. Happy childhood love.
