After a long summer vacation, the schools have opened once again and the children of Ek Koshish have once again started going to the schools after a lull fired by the scorching heat of the sun. I am also feeling a sort of vacuum in my inner self as my hours with these children are cut down due to their schools.
Really it is peace giving to be with them, to teach them, to talk and laugh with them, to share their innocent problems, to know about their little needs and to make efforts to resolve their tiny problems. The smile on their little faces always fills me with immense pleasure and peace. Do not know the reason as to why it happens actually? But I like and love to be with them. I want to see them grow and gain heights in their lives. I too want others to join hands in hand in a similar cause. But the question that often arises in my mind as to how can I change the world? What type of other efforts could I do for this cause?
But I do not find exact answers to these issues. But one thing my heart always throbs is that I can do something very big for these children in my coming future. Heart’s voice I always accept. I too wish God may help me in achieving my goal! Sometimes questions arise if we are part of this universe and nature, then why the disparity exists on this beautiful planet? Why are we not equal? Why there are billions of poor children with no education, no privilege? The mind tries its best to know the answers but is lost in the haze of plenty of thoughts and arguments. Ultimately I just think that I have to make my efforts listening to the voice of my inner self only.
I just remember the beautiful lines of Robert Frost- “Woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have miles to go before I sleep”. How beautifully, Frost has tried to resolve the ongoing conflict in mind and advocates peace in the turbulent and wild inner self of a person mad for attaining goals in life.
