THE VICTORIOUS (MARCH) GO-AHEAD!

He was the child who a year back knew only one meaning to the two-word concept which his Mom had taught him.... "Say 'MUMMY UP' when you want to be carried!" and as on that day when his Mom squarely refused to carry him saying that he should walk, the Little One looked at his Grand Pa by the side and asked him...."MUMMY UP!"

And at that age when the Little boy on a day, walked ahead a bit and as the Mom said, "Dear! Come back!" smartly started stepping back on his tiny feet....

And it was the same age when playing the Traffic Police Game on his Tri-cycle with his Grand Mom, as the elderly Lady questioned her Grand Child with all sweetness why he jumped the signal, he looked at her for a sec and with a broad smile started jumping up and down on the Tri-cycle seat....





Such a naughty Little Kid growing up fast in the land far away from Mother Land on a day had to re-position himself on the newly purchased front facing car seat as his age permitted that 180 deg turn....

The cute Little One with a smile quickly entered the car as his Mom guided him and made him sit in the new seat…. She in a short time familiarized herself with the Fastening Mechanism, put on the belt over her kid and secured it firmly….

The car moved on…. The family was silent.... The Dad's thoughts were on how make up the extra expenditure incurred in buying the new seat while the Mom was busy observing the child by bending a few times forward and checking that all was well with him....

But the happening was totally different for the Little One…. From the monotonous earlier backward position having no reference to the movement of traffic and surroundings, it was simply turning half round facing the front….

The straight on-coming vehicles passing fast by the side of the car, the zooming road in front moving up towards the vehicle, a stream of flashing lights coming on eternally, big buildings and huge trees on the road side rushing past the vehicle and seen going over the windows on both sides and the traffic signals changing alternately with beautiful colors.... Red, Yellow and Green…. An entirely different World in front!

The Kid was highly excited…. And it was really a 'Sea of change' to his 'Freedom of Observation!' There was an instant inexplicable smile on the Little One's face…. He quickly understood, when his car would stop and move as the Signals coming up on the way changed in sequence….

Soon, the vehicle was at a Red Signal and all were silent including the Boy in his car seat…. And the count down started…. 4,3,2,1…..Yes…. The Red changed to Green and the Dad began pedaling the accelerator....

“Faster!” yelled the Little One so happily to the astonishment of both the parents, the only single word he knew at that point of time whenever he had to say, “Come on! Go!” with the explicit joy so clearly seen on his face as if a 'lost Kingdom' was got back!
