A  plea of a Crying Child

As I watch this picture, I was reminded of my childhood, where my parents had to leave   a life of luxury and embrace one of poverty.  Luckily for them their religious upbringing helped them.

I remember as a child of 6 or 7 when coming from the Church to go to school, I met a lady, with a black saree, bent over me and asked me "Are you the son of John Pais baba"?   That one question changed my life.  I had met my aunt who did not exist.  I had known her sister but my parents did not tell us much because of  their own grief.

Later another gentleman used to stand at his compound wall, and watch us kids marching to school, in front of his house, and he too found in my face a reflection of my father, an spontaneously used to say, "Jona Paisana maga Walty Pais !"  which meant, "son of John Pais"  -  I did not understand at that time, what triggered it.  But now I can, how older people know their antecedents but not vice versa.  Their past memories flood their minds.

Thus these experiences have been bouncing back again and again and now I have reached 82 !   I see this child, and want to do what I can.  I know I can not, but I can write this ?   At least there is someone there who can ?   Who has been given more he can share ?

Even if we can not share wealth, we can share our feelings and give a smile to the one suffering ?   That is what happened yesterday as my wife was showing this song, "Change my life O Lord"  -  This urge of helping caught me off guard and, I asked her to bring her phone to the computer and recorded the song on Audacity program, converted it to mp3  went to the internet downloaded the pictures of suffering, praying and homeless people.   I got my data and made this video.   This much God has given me and that I shared, so that someone else who can with the help of God fulfill the dreams of a crying child.

We are passing through a battle of ideas.  Years ago there was Inustrial Revolution, and no one asked how come the West got so much wealth, that they felt the need of mechanization.  But God too put ideas in their head, while some were defrauding people and stealing from them.  James Watt saw his mothers kettle boiling and came the  locomotive !    Another discovered gravity from an apple falling from a tree.  These small inputs from the hidden hand have brought us this technlogy, and we think it is the genius of man, an ordinary mortal..   Whave become proud and forgotten the Giver.    What he has given, he can take it away any time.  This is what we learnt in 1934 !

If you have a lesson here from which you can learn, please do so.

All you need is EMPATHY.
