Innocence. Feelings, the most important thing that helps one connect to another human or anIimal. But it has become the most abused and misunderstood of the emotions. Today, while going home I met a child, 'a special child' about six years old while walking past me - who had been observing me for a minute or so when I reached him just stretched his arm to stop me, I smiled and ruffled his hair, said hello to him, his eyes looked at me as if he wanted to say something and yet could not. But he touched my soul, he did not need to say anything, his eyes did all the work. He, at that moment just needed a friend who would make him feel whole again, I reached out, shook his hand asked him a question or two which got no response but yet in his heart he had made a new friend whom he was reluctant to let go and so was I. He waved good bye. That moment - the time stood still -it is so precious it made me feel like a child, a child innocent of heart with such clear eyes - a rare combination you do not find in this age. Feelings and innocence you look everywhere and yet is not easy to find. Modern age is making children lose their feelings and innocence faster than they can say the word delete.
