My darling angel, 

You know why I chose to write these letters to you and no one else in this universe? That’s because I love you, the children, the most. You are precious innocent souls sent to us by God to give us serene happiness with your selfless giggles and cuddles. 

No wonder people say they witness God in little kids. No one can give us as much pure love as them. It is undoubtedly a blessing to have little children around. I am an automobile engineer then why did I choose to start a communication skills academy? It was undoubtedly my extreme love for the tiny tots and a great desire to contribute in shaping up their future. The hours I spent with them were the best hours of my days where their innocent smiles wiped all my stress.

Similarly, you are extremely precious for me and I possess a secret desire to groom you personally, who knows I live to that day but I know you will at least know something about your granny from these letters and I will get to feel your love in heaven if I don’t survive. 

In my today’s letter I wish to write to you about how during these troublesome #COVID19 pandemic times, our little bundles of joy too are acting as real little heroes. They haven’t gone out to school and play for so many weeks and must be feeling so claustrophobic at home but they can’t even express their feelings. They have been such epitomes of patience that I feel like taking a bow to them. 
Of course, they have a craving to play in the garden or meet a friend and how their young innocent hearts are controlling it. A little boy called Shlok is our neighbor. He comes out every day and I see in his eyes how he yearns any of the neighborhood kids come out too and they play like before. He is your dad’s only friend here and it breaks my heart to see how these little ones have to suppress their desires and trust me they are doing more than a perfect job beta. My today’s letter is a tribute to these rocking superstars. 

The fact is they possess a lot of internal strength and adaptability to do as their parents say. I am also extremely grateful to their schools to have begun virtual classes so that they are gaining the desired education every day. Parenting too has evolved in these times, we have to ensure that the kids don’t lose heart and feel lonely and try to be their constant companion. I am glad the little ones are learning a lot of life skills and are engaging with their parents to have some family fun doing yoga, making crafts, dancing, reading, etc. kudos to them as well as their parents. It takes a lot of effort on both their parts.

Of all the things that I would like to see when the corona threat subsides down, the first probably shall be to see these excited innocent souls go out and play to their heart’s content and then walk in a tiptoed march to their school smiling and giggling with their classmates, share their tiffins and play a little naughty. These are an integral part of their childhood and they indeed must get back to normal as early as possible.

The lesson learned my kid, is value the freedom you possess, enjoy your life and independence as no one has seen tomorrow, and ensure you make it worthwhile. After all, you are the best creation of God, cherish it, sweetheart.

Smearing your cheeks with infinite kisses
Your granny
Roma
