We have all this beauty around us and yet we, who are grown-ups, often forget about it and lose ourselves in our offices and imagine that we are doing very important work. I hope you will be more sensible and open your eyes and ears to this beauty and life that surround you. Can you recognize the flowers by their names and the birds by their singing? How easy it is to make friends with them and everything in nature if you go to them affectionately and with friendship. You must have read many fairy stories of long ago. But the world itself is the greatest fairy tale and story of adventure that has ever been written only, we must have eyes to see and ears to hear and a mind that opens out to the life and beauty of the world. Grown-ups have a strange way of putting themselves in compartments and groups. They build up barriers and then they think that those outside their particular barrier are strangers whom they must dislike. There are barriers of religion, caste, of color, of party, of nation, of province, of language, of custom and of wealth and poverty. Thus, they live in prisions of their own making. Fortunately, children do not know much about these barriers which separate. They play or work with one another and it is only when they grow up that they begin to learn about these barriers from their elders. I hope you will take a long time growing up.
