October end in Sikkim. Time around 6 AM. I feel chillness in the air while walking on the road. The Sun is not warm enough. A wisp of fresh morning air caresses my face.
I see a mother cajoling her kid for something. Then I notice the kid being cranky and refusing to put on his crocs and kicking them away. He wants to run bare foot on the road.
Mom ! Why are you forcing me ?
I stand there smiling….. kids are no different in any part of the world. The mother tries to distract the child pointing towards me. That also gives me a chance of speaking to the kid showing my camera. Mother tells him that I want to click a photo and tries her luck again.
The camera has made the kid curious enough to look straight in my eyes and also to oblige his mother. 😀
Me and the mother smile and thank each other.
See, I am a good boy.
