Sometime back in the week, a thought kept creeping my mind regarding the black balloon. What made the kid ask that to the balloon vendor. What made him feel the things that are black are worthless and cant fly high. Possibly, it was deeply placed in his mind by the elder's actions.This needs to be changed for a better world. It can only be done by telling kids inspiring stories and change their mindset as soon as possible.
Every morning I crossed a school on my way to the office. Each day I would see a balloon vendor early in the morning and stay till evening selling colorful nitrogen balloons. Something struck my mind and caught my attention of a young boy who kept staring at the balloons every day and left after his school bus arrived. I thought that he didnt possess enough money to buy the balloons.
One day back from the office, I went up to the boy and offered him a balloon to buy and let him choose the color of his wish.
He pointed at the black balloon then and asked the vendor Uncle I want to buy this black balloon. But I have a question whether this balloon can fly as high as others.
The vendor was confused at the question raised by the boy, what made you think the black balloon cant fly.
The boy replied, My mom told me black people are low they cant do anything. They are meant to be inferior.
Shocked at his words, I immediately interrupted that,
Kid!! You're wrong . Black is just a color and they are people like us. In fact, they are better than us. Black makes them more beautiful. We should always embrace our differences and not consider them low. Black color signifies, power, fear, mystery, strength, authority, elegance. Black signifies the power to do anything, reach and acquire anything that is possible. Please erase these thoughts from your mind, go home today and tell your mom also the same. The little guy smiled and said, Uncle give me the black balloon it's beautiful .
Be careful before expressing your thoughts in front of youngsters it stays in their heart for a long time. Erasing it takes lots of time and efforts. Think before you talk to youngsters, it may affect the future of our world drastically and lead to a lot of problems. No matter what race, color, dress, rich or poor only thing that matters is a good and kind heart. people differentiate others based on color, caste, religion, job, money but in reality, all are equal and possess the same capacity as others. It is only the air present in the balloon which signifies the hard work and dedication of the individual which helps them raise above others and achieve the goals of life.
