Yesterday I was talking with my nephew who is just 8 years and old lives abroad. I asked him a random question what is life?
Life is when you feel happy you smile and when you feel sorrow you cry.The wise donkey
It’s not a usual question for such young age and he even didn’t understand the question. Then I tried to explain him the question and he told me that he doesn’t know the answer. I told him life is when you feel happy you smile and when you feel sorrow you cry. He just shook his head.
Then I asked him the questions separately. He started counting his finger and answered me without any hesitation.
When do you feel happy?
- when I do something good
- when I come to my home and talk
- when someone plays with me
- when I am near to a sea
When do you feel sorrow?
- if someone beat me
- if someone kick me
- if someone tell me a bad thing
- find myself in a bad place
- find myself in a war
I don’t know when children start building their own universe. Often I found their thought process much better than the adult.
