Every break I take, every sip I take from my cup is with this view across my eyes. Yes, this is a view from my office cafeteria.
Since August, I overlook this site during my breaks and nothing seems to happen, it looks the same. At the outside, it looks like a no work has been done, but its been months since this work is happening.
In a few years, there will be a majestic building which will awe everyone. We love majesty and glory but it needs to be built on strong foundation, if not the glory will fade and fall!
The foundation is being made strong – Sometimes breaking hard huge rocks, sometimes filling the holes, sometimes leaving the accumulated water to dry, sometimes huge trolleys and cranes are used, sometimes a few people are running around setting the things right. The huge uneven land is made level with different tools, different techniques, with different procedures – the reason is simple, stronger the foundation, stronger the building! If the foundation isn’t strong, the building wont last long!
This is how we need to train our little ones, to identify with them – to understand their needs, to break the wrong ones, to give time sometimes to let them understand on their own and sometimes using different tools. Its not a simple solution, it is making the right choices each time to give children a strong foundation.
The problem that faces today’s world is – individuals are built on twisted beliefs, weak fundamentals and the building is already built. This is quite a distress, the building has to fall, it has to burn away and it needs to be rebuilt with strong fundamentals by strengthening the foundation.
The toughest is when we need to demolish the building – some are 35, some 40 and some 60 and 70! How hard to just burn the building we’ve built without a strong foundation…??
And everyday individuals are facing a choice to demolish and rebuild or make superficial short term fixes!
Whats your choice today?
