Divine innocence

A child is nearest to god, and in him lies the innocence in its purest form. He can do or  say anything which no grownup would be able to. The other day when my son, Kshitij was four  and daughter, Aparajita was three, the both were having bath while my wife was just having a care-taking look at them. Kshitij happened to urinate during the bath. Aparajita, looking curiously asked, ” Mummi, when will I be able to urinate standing like  Kshitij!” ” When you will be grownup like me,” responded Kshitij as if he little champ had solved the most difficult problem existing in the world.

One response to “Divine innocence

  1. aarkay

    A child because of its innocence is almost divine. As they say, “Bachchey bhagwan ka roop hotey hain “. William Blake in his “Songs of Innorence and Experience ” has explained the contrast between a child and a grown up , beautifully. A very nice write up !
