A friend of mine has a status message on gtalk …“when u r a little kid u r a little bit of evth…artist,scientist,athlete,scholar. sometimes it feels like growing up is a process of giving all those things up one by one. i think we all have one thing that we regret giving up,one thing we miss that we gave up coz we were too lazy, we cudnt stick it up or coz we were afraid”.
Very beautiful indeed. He told me these lines were from the tv show Wonder Years!! (one more reason to watch WOnder Years but damn nobody has it in our college.. 😦 ).. Well coming to the point of childhood.. Each and everywhere childhood is glorified as something which is above all…
Agreed nothing in this world can match the pure simplicity of a child and his smile but constant cribbing about childhood (mind you I do it on many occassions). We all keep cribbing and wanting to be children many times but to what extent is this correct!!! Were we all happy and gay when we were children ?? Didnt we use to yearn for the freedom and the respect a grown up gets. As children we didnt have all these tensions and crisis we encounter now but somehow the life at this stage is also enjoyable. Why dont we see the half full side of life and enjoy the benefits of our age instead of complaining for ever for the lack of innocence.
Why do we human beings always have to be complaining?? Why is it basic human nature to be nevr satisfied with what you’ve got??
Don’t expect me to defend anything and you are more than welcome to flame me. I wont mind.. I myself keep wanting to be a child again.. but I am just pissed off with this tendency of ours of remembring happy memories of past and trying to be that again. We never recount the sad and terrible things which happend back then and just keep blaming our past. When we are in school we always keep thinking of the times when we were toddlers and had no tensions of studies or anything.
We just keep cribbing.
