I had written a long note on my second trip to Maher, but I somehow wasn't contented. I deleted it. Words are too less to describe the feeling one feels after bringing smile on their faces.. So pious, so serene, so calm. Children are really the best gift from God!!
Fearless, innocent, inquisitive, cheerful, lovable.. they truly know how to live and respect life. How to respect what you have. How to believe in yourself and learn the odds of this beautiful world. Maher is a place in shirur- 'mother's home' where I find the missing solace in me.
A day spent with them is a day where you realise the extent of materialism present in the world today and how we all are stuck in it's web. We all have really forgotten how much happiness and pleasure simple things of life can bring. 'A smile to a stranger can make her feel nice about herself' is not what we do. The children knew how to say 'Thank you' with humility. They were so talented and full of energy that it was difficult to believe life can be so simple and enjoyable if we lived it the way it should be.
I am not going to write more since the feeling is inexplicable. I am glad I reunited with my soul and felt peaceful.
