Angels do exist!

This one's dedicated to 2 little darlings I met. This incident happened a few days back. In order to calm my brooding mind I set our for a walk all by myself. The long and lonely walk did nothing but dampen my already dimishing spirits and so I decided to walk back home.. maybe a lil bit of browsing might help.

I decided to turn around and walk back... 15 minutes later as I passed by 2 little girls. They called out to me "Akka.. Akka.." Looking at their shabby clothes I thought they must be one of those roadside kids who pester you for money. Thinking about the bad experiece I had with one of those kids I decided to walk fast and not stop. I could hear them running behind me and calling out for me.. as they drew loser I started digging my bag for change. Just as they reached me the 2 of them said with a happy smile "Hi Akka". Now that was something that I didn't expect. I smiled back and said "Hi!!" .

As the kids slowed down and started walking alongside me I felt a sudden tide of relief swept through my mind, clearing all sad thoughts within me. All of a sudden I started feeling happy, feeling good... as though the sadness in me was just sucked out .. I felt as though they were my guardian angels :)  

Li’l Angels : “Meeru ekkadakki velthunaru akka??” (where are you heading to)
Me           : Shilpa park nana (Shilpa park baby)

They told me they were heading for somewhere close by to my place and they were happy that we’re going to walk together for some more time. Then they started talking.. they spoke about school, dance, fun, PT, holidays…. Like a new found friend from school even I was totally enjoying the conversation as I told them how even I used to hate homework’s and how good I feel about those one day off’s we get in between school owing to bandh/hartal (these days I guess Kerala students get more of those holidays than what we ever had).

As we went on a on about things little did we realize we’re reached that turning point of this beautiful journey where we had to part ways. The older of the two pointed towards a cute little house and said “Ade ma illu” Daz our home. They younger one was in no mood to stop her non-stop chattering. We stood there and spoke for a few more minutes until the older one reminded the little angel that she shouldn’t forget that they’d gone to the market to get rice. Their Mom must be waiting for them to start cooking.

At that note she looked at me smiled and said I need to go now. I smiled and said yes I know. Since I had the habit of carrying chocolates in my bag, I took out 2 and gave it to those kids. The kids were overjoyed. Little did they know that this was nothing compared to the joy they gave me in the lonely road that I walked carrying the heavy burden of sorrow in my mind. I was just looking for a little bit of happiness and they gave me a shower that drenched me in happiness.

I do not know their names, neither do they know mine. Yet they managed to carve a special place in my heart. Each time I think of them I feel good about myself. Somehow they managed to make me feel special at a time when I was feeling completely low, lost in life. I haven’t met them after that day, but am looking forward to see more of the lilttle angels. God bless them!!

Well Ms/Mr anonymous... you need to keep your eyes wide open, do no search for something that you need.. cuz in that process you fail to notice better things around you.. follow this and am sure even you would soon be meeting your guardian angels too :-)
