My friend and I were traveling back home from college on a bus. A seven year old girl with her mother got into the bus and they sat beside us. The girl seemed to be mentally challenged. She had a charming smile on her face and her eyes had their vocabulary. We noticed a lady sitting beside the girl left her seat and kept standing for no reason. On this act, her mother looked sad and she held her daughter’s hand firmly. But the girl gracefully carried that constant smile on her face. The rest passengers kept on staring at her as if she belonged to some different planet.
I smiled at her and she instantly smiled back. I moved my hand towards her and said “hello”. She looked at my hand, paused for a while and then looked at her mother. Her mother nodded her head in a sign of yes. We shook hands and she replied, “Hello sister”. Her sweet voice just melted my heart and then I eagerly asked her name. She stuttered while speaking. Her mother corrected “Shruti Karmakar”. The small enthusiastic girl asked our name and we replied. It felt like in few seconds we became friends. She felt comfortable. Then she talked about her day in school, her friends, teachers, etc. She had some difficulty while speaking but her enthusiasm just covered it. I saw her mother looking at her daughter while her eyes were numb. Their bus stop arrived and while getting down, the girl whispered something in her mother’s ears and they both laughed. Her mother told us “she is saying that you have become her best friend”. They go hand and waved her hands to say goodbye. Her face depicted how happy she was to have friends.
This short conversation enlightened my mind to think about how we can contribute happiness by just being kind. They don’t expect or demand anything from society and we have to make them realize that these challenged people are not different. We all are god’s gift and we should always be kind, appreciable, friendly and most important “be a human”.
