Fragile, handle with care..


This side up, handle with care.We often see this marked on boxes with fragile items.

Ladies do not want too many glass jars in the kitchen for the fear of breaking the jars, and cleaning up after the job is done.

I often think to myself, glass jars broken can be thrown, replaced, what about a breaking heart of a little child, or a fellow being?

I wonder, would our interaction with other fellow beings been different, had our creator marked us with fragile, handle with care!!!

When we step into this world, our mind – our thoughts are programmed by our creator to be pure, innocent and fragile. It is to be handled with care, and it is, till such time when we start to understand the ways of the people around us, and the ways of the world. We shape the fragile child’s innocence to the hard ways of the world. The raw material, the clean slate of the child starts getting filled up. It is put through the mill. It goes through the grind, the cycles of emotions, the ups and downs of becoming a finished product – getting ready to face the world, preparing to take on any sort of rough and crude handling, for the label of fragile, handle with care is missing …

Not to say, that these emotions, these processes that the child begins to go through could be done with, but,

If only, we could be a little more gentle, loving and caring with our children,

If only, we could treat every human being with compassion …

If only, we could treat every living being on the earth with love and affection..

If only, we could embrace mother earth with peace and prosperity…

If only, we could work with a SMILE..

If only, we could have the tags or labels of FRAGILE, HANDLE WITH CARE…

The world would have been a much better place to live in!!

  1. This one too is beautiful, Deepika.
    Just a few thoughts – it is negativity that compliments positivity, it is the state of being in pain that gets you to appreciate ‘being free of pain’. Should not every positive be balanced with a negative, that is the rule of the world. Is it not?
    Let me know what you think?

    1. Agreed Pranitha. Good points brought out. The point I was trying to convey is that in the current scenario the negatives outweigh the positives. If only, we could add a bit of positivity in the form of love, smile, compassion, it could do wonders. Small steps to make the families and in turn , the world a better place to live in.
