An important life lesson to be learnt from Kite Flying:
During the season of kite flying that usually takes place in the beginning of the year, a Mother was flying a kite with her son and daughter on the terrace of their bungalow. Her son who was yet small was watching her carefully. After sometime son said, “Mom because of the string that you are holding, the kite is not able to go higher and higher.” Hearing this, the mother smiles and breaks the string. As soon as she breaks the string, the kite goes higher and higher, then shortly after that it comes and falls on the ground. The child is very dejected and sad. He feels why did his mother have to do this and goes and sits in a corner.
The mother then goes and sits next to him and calmly explains in her composed voice, “Son, in life we reach a certain level and then we feel that there are quite a number of things that are not letting us grow any further like home, family, culture etc. We feel we want to be free from those strings which we believe are stopping us from going higher. But, remember son, ‘That our home, family and culture are the real things that will help us stay stable at the higher heights too. If we try to break away from those strings our condition will be similar to the kite and we’ll fall down soon.
Never turn your back from relationships as they help keep us stable while we are flying too high. We must come back to reality. Life is a beautiful journey. Stay connected. Stay Strong. Life never seems to be the way we want it, but we live in the best way we can. There is no perfect life but we can fill it with perfect moments.
Stay safe. All will be good and what has come will soon pass. Let us all pray that our beautiful World blossoms with Love and Joy.
