This one time in mountains, while trekking through a little village, We came across these three kids. They greeted us ‘Namaste’ and kept the hands between their chests in the same position for a while. I did not get that. Then they politely asked, ‘Meetha(Sweets)’. I felt very bad because they were actually requesting us for sweets by saying Namaste and I could not understand that. I could not stop myself for another second and gave them ‘Besan ke laddu & other home made items’ to eat. Those kids left the stamp of their reflection and innocence on me. I was so elated to see them.
