The angels

Kids are so amazing to be with. Their carefree life, without any worries or disputes. That pampered living void of any conspiracies, hassles, egos or tension.
I live in an apartment complex that houses a dozen kids, majority of them who are so tall that, the top of their heads reach my knees. So, when the clock strikes 6, all of them rush out and well, its invited chaos.
Of lately, I've been involved in their evening playing activities too. I'm supposed to be "ammya", the one who is supposed to cook up new games for them daily and take them for ramya go round spins or at times a ride on my bike.
Running n catching, Hide n Seek, Red Letter, Spell the word, Tricycle Races and so many other activities. This has become a daily routine for me to think of new games everyday. My evenings are spent with these lovely souls, who make me feel so young! (not that I'm 60 already) Their way of talking, their hoppity hoppity hop walks, their cycles, their squeeking shoes, their toys, their shrieks, their grubby knees and muddy hands, their broken teeth issues and so much more. One really has to be around to capture the moment. Words fail always to describe beautiful things in the world !
