So The other day I was walking on the road, and saw one of my neighbours coming opposite to me. As she neared, naturally I smiled at her but she only stared back. I abruptly stopped smiling, looked at her, and made sure that she was my very same neighbour and I was not mistaken. And continued to smile.
But she simply walked way. I was surprised ‘as usual”. “As usual “ because this is not an exceptional incident, there had been a lot of such similar incident and every time I become surprised.
(now if you ask me “oh girl! why should you bother to smile?” I would say “why aren’t they bothering to smile?”)
What will it cost you if you just smile? As far as I know we will not lose anything but on the other hand ,will only be benefited. But you know what? Smiling is becoming a thing of the past.
Today As such, we are already ungenerous and adding to that, we are becoming parsimonious even to smile!
There are this kind of people around us, who would either give you a disgusting look as if you are a freshly released criminal, or stare at you so intensely as if you are an alien from another planet,when you do nothing but just SMILE at them! (no am not exaggerating)
Some times even some of my classmates fall in a dilemma whether to smile or not to and finally they will end up giving something like a “smile” and sometimes they don’t.
At times they even give a “blink-and-you-will-miss it” kinda smile! Oh ya,its a fast world..:)
What is worst is that even small kids hesitate to smile-a proof that they are losing their innocence
I am just wondering.How will it be in future ,when you smile at a tot and it is not able to recognize a smile. it would perhaps ask its mom, ”mommy,look that girl is doing a strange facial gesture…..what’s that???”
Or just think how will it be, few decades from now, when a small kid walks into a studio out of curiosity , and when the photographer shouts “smile please”.
The kid would say “what please??? Sorry I am afraid I don’t have it with me……..”,or probably they will take their ipad and google out “what is smile?”and google in turn would give the answer “ SMILE- a beautiful facial expression, that homo sapiens could do till 2030s by fexing the mucles at the end of our mouth,but lost it during the course of evolution…..”
sad and funny!:P
Smile is an internationally known facial expression.
Everyone, whatever their caste,religion,country or colour may be, identifies it.
smile means positive energy,something that is beautiful and make us more beautiful, a powerful tool that can rekindle our hopes.smile is powerful than words.(if someone yells angrily at you,just smile at him\her and nothing irritates them moreJ)
so friends, if somebody smiles at you, don’t forget to smile back (of course you know the “somebody” am talking about:))
Let the 'infection' spread in this world, in this world where people kill each other for no reason…J
