Few days back, I was not feeling well. It was just mild fever and cold…..but was feeling real sick. As I was alone at home, I was feeling low. I decided to visit a doctor at a nearby hospital. I was engrossed with the feeling of self-pity waiting for my turn to see the doctor. I could hear crying sounds of a girl from inside. I enquired from the people outside, who happened to be her family. I was told that their eight year old daughter was bitten by a dog and was bleeding badly. And then she came out crying…the little sweet girl. She was made to sit. Her crying gradually turned into wailing. I could see courage in her eyes. Her mother asked if she wanted anything – biscuit, chocolate. She nodded yes. The few tears in her eyes also vanished. I smiled. I completely forgot why I was there.

The other day as I was stepping towards my home after the hectic day at work, a five year old boy (my little neighbor) crossed. He waived and said ‘Hi’ quite impressively. I smiled.

Amidst the serious work on excel, suddenly the thought of my loving grandfather and his words said years back caught my mind. I smiled.

The child-like stubbornness of a senior colleague in a meeting again made me smile.

Travelling back home, I met two little sisters. As the elder one kissed the younger one, I thought of my childhood with my loving sister and I smiled.

Smile is everywhere… and there it catches me…
It connects me to the people and to myself as well
It makes me feel more alive…
Moreover, it does not require any big thing to happen;
It comes with many little beautiful moments…just that we have to be careful not to miss it.
