After a long summer vacations, 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 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. 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 wants others to join hands in hand in the 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 disparity exists on this beautiful planet? Why are we not equal? Why there are billions poor children with no education, no privilege? Mind tries its best to know the answers but is lost in the haze of plenty 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.

 Pencil and Eraser- A real Inspiring Story 
 

Some of us have already lost either one or both or all of our “Erasers” But it’s still nice to be reminded of them!
   Pencil: I’m sorry !

Eraser: For what? You didn’t do anything wrong.
Pencil: I’m sorry because you get hurt because of me.
Whenever I made a mistake, you’re always there to erase it.
But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself.
You get smaller and smaller each time.
Eraser: That’s true. But I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this.
I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong.
Even though one day, I know I’ll be gone and you’ll replace me with a new one,
I’m actually happy with my job.
So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad.
Every one can find this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational.
Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil.
They’re always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes.
Sometimes along the way, they get hurt, and become smaller / older, and eventually pass on.
Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse),
But parents are still happy with what they do for their children,
And will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad.
All my life, I’ve been the pencil.
And it pains me to see the eraser that is my parents getting smaller and smaller each day.
For I know that one day,
All that I’m left with would be eraser shavings and memories of what I used to have.
“We never know the love of our parents for us 
Until we have became parents”
  
Let’s do Ek Koshish One Attempt- to make those happy who really sacrificed for us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
