THE PHOTO THAT CAPTURED ME IS



BECAUSE

The Little One was just a year old and the child's innocent smile, expressive eye contacts and instant friendly responses used to hold every one’s attention in the neighborhood. Where the child was, there used to be an instant aura and unusual glow all round..

Once, the parents traveled to a place of tourist importance and were at the hotel where they booked their accommodation. It took some time for the previous guest to vacate and so the family along with the Little One was made to wait in the spacious lobby there for an hr or more.

As the room was still not ready, the family moved on for some time with the child in the pram but the mother soon got tired and decided to rest for a while in the corner of the entrance of another hotel next to them in the same premises. As she sat there along with the child in pram, her husband moved away to get few eatables and milk for the child. The cramped hotel lobby of the second hotel was busy with number of guests coming in and moving out.

The second hotel Manger seeing the mom and the child in his area, instantly told the mother with all politeness,
  • “Ma'm, there are only a few seats here and our guests are in great numbers. They are a bit inconvenienced. But still have your seat and take care of your boy!” 
Thus conveying his problem in a diplomatic way. The mother felt very much sorry for troubling them but was equally helpless to move from there.

Soon the booked hotel Manager rang up to the family and said,
  • "Sorry to keep the Little One waiting in the lobby for a longer time and we offer you a 3 day free stay in our Hotel within an year's time!" 
Here alone, both the hotel Managers erred beyond and very much needed brushing up their knowledge in hospitality business as
  • At the first hotel, the child quickly made full use of his waiting by constantly observing the distance hustle and bustle and thus was in his own world of happiness which he could never have done in the limited Hotel Room facing 4 walls.. 
And
  • At the second hotel, he was again no less. He, with his silent expressive communications and a few unexplained sounds made in between quickly attracted many guests moving around thus indirectly promoting the brisk hospitality business in a big way as the guests in no time forgot their travel strains, became quite mused with the child’s innocent communications and responded with all cheerfulness having a unique satisfaction in their hearts! 
WELL DONE BABY!
