Being a child at heart...

There's a child within each one of us, honest to the core, but sometimes we grow too mature to realize the importance of being truthful:::truthfully innocent. What is honesty all about? Can it only be retained when we are far away from the fangs of adulthood, or can we also hold on to it while we grow up towards what we call a mature and responsible future. I am amazed at the fact, that how whenever there is a case of manipulation in the office , there are series of articles that are released through the internal site, especially the ones on integrity, honesty and many more words that have been giving a sane backbone to an ever changing society. But have we forgotten what it was to be truthful, have we learnt the act of turning a deaf ear to the helpless calls of our conscience. Have we forgotten the first phrase of honesty being the best policy, the very first one that we learnt when we were in kindergarten, the scolding that we got when we lied to our parents about our poor scores. Life teaches many lessons but somehow they seep through, without touching our soul, and the ones we imbibe are moulded as per the situations that arise. May be not always but they do get altered with time. It is the lack of stability that makes us face the negative situations in life ……..a firm belief in the positive, whatever the situation might be, gives one a stable future ….A few forgotten lessons make our life what we would never like it to be….a living fa├žade…. Its time for some revision.
