A Life Less Ordinary

Life In My Mailbox...

Yes, the moment I have been waiting for weeks, just arrived last night. When I went home after work, I had a special package in my mailbox...love and cuddles in the form of a letter...a heart beating to live...longing to love, learn and grow. It was my first ever sponsored child's documents with his pic, and family details (refer to my last post about him here). As my dear friend SMM asked me to introduce this lil boy to all of you too, I'm doing this post especially for SMM, for darling Margie and for anyone else who's interested. I'd like to call him baby Dee cos his name starts with the letter D (sorry I'm not allowed to display his pic or make his personal details all that public). He lives in a wartorn area in Sri Lanka with his parents, he's 4yrs old and comes from a very poor home, he's the only child in the family so far, he doesn't go to school and his hobby is playing Ball games. When I opened the package up, saw his small face, quizzical eyes, that sweet I-don't-like-being-photographed look, very old shirt and read his details too, I was in tears. Not cos of baby Dee's status, but cos of all the trivial things people give so much importance to in life. Even on the net, people just cannot live and let live. And this was a child from an extremely war-stricken area in SL, and he's only asking for a chance to LIVE. Nothing less nothing more. And what do some so called grown-ups do...constantly bicker, hurt each other, whinge about nothing, engage in power struggles, feel sorry about themselves for the slightest thing and think about themselves only. How very immature, stupid and selfish.


A Long Way From Home...
Man life is simple! It's not demanding...it doesn't ask you for anything. It's just there...it's beautiful...it's pure. Why make it so complicated? Why twist it, turn it, bend it, break it, abandon it? Why are we leaving Life behind when all it wants us to do is embrace it? No it's not even about our many Wants, and no I'm not telling you to feel sorry for this kid or praise me for my deeds again. It's about LIFE...it's about how it's just there and how we don't make the most of it. Like Margie said in her post today, we are blessed with the joys of so many ordinary things. Life is in the ordinary things we come across every single day. And children like baby Dee and these 2 kids in the pics don't even have those ordinary things in their lives, such as fresh clothes, shoes, security, sound health, a comfy bed, education, a clean bathroom, 3 meals a day, Internet, telephones, Maccas, movies, ice cream, parks, toys, birthday parties, hugs and kisses, a glass of milk....guys can you see how far away some of us are from the simple LIFE? (pic: a street child in India living off basically nothing)


Staying In Touch With Life...
We have added so many things on top of life. See how far we have gone from Life...how much we have run away from what LIFE really is. Strip off all your worries...remove all your masks...tear off all your disappointments. Just be for a minute. What do you get now? Life staring back at you, not one inch away from you, not one bit different to you. We don't need
much to live...we don't need to run so much or gain so much distance to live. So why have we left Life behind? Where are we going so fast? We are a long way from home.
Baby Dee is an example of LIFE in it's purest forms...a life longing to live...a life breathing...a life that don't want anything else but LIFE. (pic: a starving child in Ethiopia finding it unable to cope)


Some Prayers Are Better Unanswered
Did you miss your coffee today? Perhaps something didn't turn out the way you wanted it to? Is the kitchen tap leaking? Those nice shoes arent on sale anymore? Maybe you forgot to buy your shampoo on the way home last night? Or maybe your friend didn't return your call. Perhaps your electricity bill is higher this time or your phone just died. Or you may be cursing God that he didn't answer your prayers? Don't panic...without all of that, Life still breathes. These children do.

Arunima said...

hey dear Congrats on this new endeavor. well done.
May thruout life u get the strength & means 2 facilitate this decision of urs!
:)
Cheers!

Cяystal said...

Those pics ping me inside, and hurt reaal bad.

Sad. but true

I have no words!

!Teq-uila Del Zapata said...

very touchy indeed, all those pics and all those things make my eyes teary. we had everything still we crib.
and worse enough people r instead of being thankful for life, screwing others life.

Asha said...

That is lovely Keshi, glad that makes you officially a mom, be proud. I wanted to see his face too but I understand that you can't post.
Make sure the money you pay goes only to him and when you visit, make sure you visit him personally. They just showed slumdog M kid actors in Mumbai slums. While most kids benefited by the money they earned by the movie, one boy's parents have spent all his money and he was crying that he is poorer than before!!! I felt so bad, directors who paid him should have invested for his future somehow. His life worse now.
Anyway, we have Shiva Ratri on Monday. Since Arvind isn't going to be Sunday and Monday, I have cook for tomorrow.
Have a great weekend, hugs to you. Enjoy your son. Now we have something in common!!:)

Prakhar said...

Hey Keshi,

Little short on words...but I agree wid you totally...

Luv you and baby Dee :)

Shrav said...

I've soo much and I didn't realise it till now :(

This was an eye opener, esp the pics...

And as far as what you're doing is concerned, just amazing! Amazing, really!

Maybe, one day, I'd have such an opportunity too to adapt a child, when I start earning!

I'll try 2 be truthful said...

the last para was a clincher :)

yes the children of god do live on , and here we are cribbing about small things 0f life.

keep up the great work &love :)

Margie said...

I can just imagine how your heart skipped a beat when you got that special package last night.
Pure joy, I am sure!
I'm so happy for you, Keshi:):):)

And then all you expressed about life and life's meaning is so very true....thank you, Keshi for your awareness and sharing it here.
It was lovely and so meaningful!

My life is just about ordinary days and ordinary moments but I treasure them!
When I think about all those with misfortunes, children who go hungry, I cry for them and I am thankful for what I have!
And, I want to share what I have with others, even if it's only a smile!
Noone has perfect days but there can be perfect moments in our days...if only we took the time to find them, they are there!

As I arise to begin a new day, I feel blessed as I have been given another day to treasure and enjoy all my perfect moments!

May precious little Dee bring you much joy as I know you will bring much joy to his life!

HUGGGGGZ!

Margie

those pics are so very disturbing :((

яノςんム said...

wow mommie!!

congos :)

n keep us updated about our very own baby Dee :)

Jack said...

Keshi,

Let me just say if all think the same way there would be hevean on this very planet itself. Bravo. All you said had been in my way all through. I always say be content with what you have and thank the Almighty for that. You should strive for more but not hanker and achieve it with hard work. When you feel sad about something you donot have, look at those who donot have even what you have. While in Air Force I saw this caption on the desk of our Logistic Officer " I kept cribbing about my shoes till I saw a man with no feet ". How true!

Take care

vishesh said...

I hope these children get back their life...and for that we need to do something,I hope to do whatever I can,in the future(have ideas,hope they materialize)..

La vida Loca said...

oh ya I my "friend" dint return a call..from 1.5 year ago..and lo and behold I am still alive and angry :(

comfortably numb said...

whtever the hardships, whtever the problems...one must always remember that life is one heck of a gift to have!!!

This is wht makes u the person tht u r...and u r simply beautiful!! *Hugs*

krystyna said...

Really Life is simple,
why we people like to complicete it...
My last post (short video) little correlates with your message.

I keep my fingers crossed and pray for you and your sweet baby Dee.
I'm sure you will be lovely and the best mom. Your soul shines.
You have a sweet and truly thoughtful heart.
Good luck, Keshi!

Have a wonderful weekend!

WarmSunshine said...

Keshi i'm in tears... those photos are just.... they shook me... the second one... that starving child... i'm at a loss of words my dear...

we have so much to be thankful for... so very very much! we just don't thank God enough do we??

I'm so happy for baby Dee... hugs to him!

KLC said...

You rock. That is just so great. More people need to reach out and we can all make a true difference. I try to every day!

Talking To My Soul said...

Now, Kesh, this is some answer for all those who bothered you. I bet, they will now take a dip in Ganges.

Baby Dee be blessed. The mom too.

*smilez*

Dawn....सेहर said...

Dear that post with letters and flowers speak a lot!!!! Tears came the moment I stared at that picture!!!
I hope people take some lesson from your post! I hope it inspires others too!
I love you dear...and I have a dream to meet you in person which has now grown even more :)
HUgz and Cheers my dear God bless you all and those whom You love (amen)

Beach Bum said...

Thank you for voicing far better many of the thoughts that have crossed my small mind for years.
I have some idea how you felt when you opened that packet. When the packet for my daughter came in from China I was on another world.

Trinaa said...

speechless.. :'(

AmitL said...

Hi,Keshi-that was so touching!And,a real eye-opener. The last few days, I've been wondering-what makes me feel down/serious/annoyed,etc? If I make a comparison between where I was and where I am,I'm supposedly shades higher.So,why do many emotions not come as easily to me now as they used to,say,in school days?And,the answer is-simplicity.That's what is missing to some extent today.The more the choices,the more complicated life becomes.And,even though I'm one of the last people to get enamoured of these materialistic things,the effects still remain courtesy people around!
---
So,this post,the pics of the two lil guys who are still surviving against all odds,and,your sponsored child's details-made me really sit up and take notice!Thanks and TC!!If you are allowed and do write to the lil guy,add a big hug from me too!!:)

mayz said...

m kinda outta words here...have this huge lump in my throat...

oh n lotsa love to baby dee

SMM said...

Oh Keshi...thanx for satisfying my answers. This is so lovely. S o tell me, will Baby Dee be coming to stay with you family, or will he be in Sri Lanka only? If that's the case, I do hope you get to meet him one day.

I hope Baby Dee knows how lucky he is and maybe once he's a little older can read this post, and the previous one, that you'v written for him and know with how much love you have welcomed him into your life.

Btw what did the family say?

Akshat said...

Hey K!!

Loads of love to Baby Dee...You ae doing a noble thing K....hope I have the strength to do something like this too...yes the pics are very disturbing.....and kinda welled up my eyes!!

It is understandable that you cannot show his photo...but I hope you have seen it and make sure the money is in the right hands...and spent in good deeds!!

Love you sooooooo much!!

Kudos K!!

Take Care

ves21 said...

Great of you to "adopt" the kid. Be nice if someone did it for the many others like the ones in your picks.
Don't have time to read the rest...
Seems you got mad at someone...
cheers

Trevor Penn said...

Neat post, Kesh. Baby Dee will turn out great too. Best wishes. :)

Jeevan said...

Those pictures are heartfelt dear.

The strong as wind, but mild as breeze helps to breath. Life at simplest is best, and when the great vivid is shared with others even those below the simplest can have there fundamentals. I wish this mind and thought to everybody. More than it shows ur kindness, this spreads to encourage others helping mind. Thanks.

you are right life IS simple .. You know what is difficult .. or what is complicated ???
guess .....



No guesses ????


keeping it simple !!!!

:) nice post .. just tdy in middle of a badminton game i happened to see a temple and i dunno what came over me .. i went there stood for 2 mintues and thanked god for what i have ... mind you i am not the religious kinds though am a nbeliever .. just generally parents hv to push me to make go to atemple once every year .... this time i just did it ..
so i guess tdy was the right day to be reading this post as well

Ramya said...

Such things in life are like a slap on the face when you complain of extra calories coz your mum put a teaspoon of extra sugar in your milk!
That's something awesome you are doing! Good going ! :)

George said...

Hi Keshi ... I'm sort of back on a part time basis.
Nothing in the world saddens me like the thought, picture or story of children who have to struggle so hard just to see the next day arrive. they are abused, forgotten, ignored and feared by so many of us. You did an absolutely wonderful thing for a child somewhere in the world. I have done the same and while he may be tens of thousands of kilometers away, I like you know that we have done some good for somebody in the world.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Nice to help others, especially kids.

MARIA said...

I am very happy for you, dear Keshi.
God bless your plan!
Have a happy Sunday!

Hey Kesh... :-) Hows Dee...

yday i was talking abt this to my flat mates.. S declared that she ll adopting a child no matte rhow many she gives birth to.. my other mate was shell-shocked to hear this.. she was exclaiming how cud u do this? u don't know wr he came from, caste religion back ground and stuff.. it was my turn to get shocked.. we still have such specimens.. i had to explain to this lady.. i dunno if i convinced her, but i am gonna keep up this job..

Convey my love to Dee... :-)

starry nights said...

Keshi this post brought tears to my eyes and felt ashamed of myself for complaining about simple things.we take life for granted and do not ever look beyond our four walls.Some one out there is just asking for a chance to live.I feel really bad.Thank you for opening my eyes and making me think.

comfortably numb said...

Keshi...u have been tagged, take a look!!!

Aneesh said...

WOW! what a time to check your post.
Great! I guess, what you did is just special and beautiful. I just watched a movie(oh, yah, that is going fine BTW non-stop), which has the same message. That's quite a coincidence. We too have our own charity works, but I always wanted to do something which is more involving. Nice post, the take away from this post is something I would like to make practical.
Hope you are fine and doing great.
I guess, nothing special happened on Valentine's day? LOL. Will surely check out other posts soon :D

Kartz said...

Who said there is a dearth of good people on planet Earth..?

The goodness is within us.

I wish you and Baby-D the very best... Take care.

(And hey, I swear there was another post! Deleted it, I guess?)

Thought provoking, as ever...

Peace. Be well.

Adisha said...

Another amazing post. Once again, my admiration for you increases. Keep going gurl !!

I hope baby dee and more like him, gets all that they deserve and more ...

Vest said...

IF....If the USA had spent twenty percent of the cost in unecessary warfare on developement and humanitarian aid in under developed areas of our world. there would be thousands less war widows living off the parish and certaily less Fatcat Industrialists salting away their nefarious blood money in dodgy overseas tax havens.

I love you because you are such a softy.

Alone we can do so little: together we can do so much.

Well said Keshi and my hats off to you for embracing Baby Dee :D

Suresh Kumar said...

Nice Post. Life is in the small deeds and not in the big wants.

Hope many such kids find a better future for themselves.

Keshi said...

ty Anwesa!

Baby Dee will receive all ur love and positive vibes, and Im sure he'll be a blessed child.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Arunima!

Im only doing a VERY SMALL grain of help. More has to be done by more ppl. Cos there r so many babies like this around the world!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey Crystal!

yeah these kinda pics used to stab me in my heart for years...and adopting Baby Dee was a result of that pain. I just HAD to DO something to ease atleast 1 child's misery.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Anuz!

**worse enough people r instead of being thankful for life, screwing others life

exactly! I wonder what these ppl r made of.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww ty Asha!

I know..I hv checked all of that before this adoption. Im doing it thru a very trustworthy orgnatisation. And I will receive letters fro Baby Dee and his progress reports too.



**Now we have something in common

awww I so agree...we r both mums now :). ur a real mum...Im just an aid only...but I already feel so close to this lil guy.


*HUGZ*

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey ty Prakar!

:)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Shrav ty!

**I've soo much and I didn't realise it till now

yep we hv to look at pics like this to REALISE how much we HAVE.


Im sure u'll do it some day...I hv a good feeling abt ya :)


Keshi.

Ankur said...

and u know... u have done a gr8 job by adopting... i always wanted to do something like this but am more proud of the fact that now i know 3 ppl like u!! :)

Keshi said...

ty Truthful!


**yes the children of god do live on , and here we are cribbing about small things 0f life.

spot on!

And these children hv done nothing wrong but they suffer in bloody wars, unlawful labor, prostitution etc at the hands of evil ADULTS.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Margie!

As usual ur spot on!


**And, I want to share what I have with others, even if it's only a smile!

Exactly! And some ppl cant even give a smile..its free for goddsakes!


*HUGZ* got ur sweet msg :) TY!


Keshi.

ty Hobo Im still enjoying ur very unique award :) I love it!



**God made men, men made boundaries.

Keshi said...

Hey Sawan!

**those pics are so very disturbing

yep they are. And if we dun look at such pics, we'll never know. Right?


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey ty Richa!

:) ofcourse I will keep u all updated. But I cant reveal too much info abt him...cos thats not the right thing to do by baby Dee. Also, its against the law for me to do that.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Jack!

And ur absolutely right. ppl need to stop cribbing abt basically nothing.


**I kept cribbing about my shoes till I saw a man with no feet "

I've seen that before and it sums this post up so nicely!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey ty Vish!

Im sure u will do something abt it...I hv immense trust in ya.


**I hope these children get back their life...and for that we need to do something

yep...I read on a newspaper yday that India holds position 105 in the global EDUCATION FOR ALL Index. That means so many children in India dun get an education and they are either forced work for a living or they stay at home during their school years. How sad ha!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

hehe Lavida, why dun u give him a call again? 1.5yrs is a long time to wait...who knows if he's ok sweetie?

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Well-said CN!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Ria HUGS!

**nothing can be more satisfying personally than what u r doin right now

thats so true...there's no other joy like giving!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

hey ty Krys!

I read ur latest post and it was absolutely brilliant!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Sunshine girl!

yes I hv cried countless times thinking abt kids like these 2...and its after years of tears that I hv arrived at BABY DEE :)

I cant help the whole world...neither do I hv the power to change the world or stop hunger, war and famine...but I can do something small for atleast 1 child that deserve a LIFE. And thats what Im doing.



**we just don't thank God enough do we??

well said!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

WC KLC n tnxx!

**More people need to reach out and we can all make a true difference

I so agree. Im only helping 1 child out of the millions that suffer on a daily basis!

I guess the Ganges will turn very brown then!


Keshi.

Keshi said...

Dawny I'd love to meet ya too my sis!


**I hope people take some lesson from your post! I hope it inspires others too!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Mayz that lump in my throat made me do this...

Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww SMM it was my pleasure!


**S o tell me, will Baby Dee be coming to stay with you family, or will he be in Sri Lanka only? If

no he's not coming to live with me...he lives in SL with his parents. I send him the money to go to school, health checks, food and other things. Its a very small amount per month. But apparently that helps his whole family and community to have better facilities and live well.


My mum was happy for me. I know she always wanted to do the same thing. She will be doing it when she goes to SL next year for a holiday. :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

And SMM yes I will go see him when I go to SL next! :)

Keshi.

Keshi said...

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Amy!

Im not allowed to post his personal details or pics on a website. I was told so.

It's also to protect his privacy as well as not make that child feel like he's being HELPED. U know, he should never get that vibe some day, even when Im not here.


*HUGZ*

Keshi.

Keshi said...

ty Aiz! :)


Keshi.

Keshi said...

WOW Reclamation u went to the temple? How nice :) Im proud of ya.

Even Im like u...I hardly go to the temple or church...I go only when there's a Calling. I think ur experience was a Calling too.


**keeping it simple !!!!

I so agree..its the hardest to do!

**Such things in life are like a slap on the face when you complain of extra calories coz your mum put a teaspoon of extra sugar in your milk

I so agree :)

Phoso ty!

yes, especially kids, cos they r innocent, helpless, and hv no opinion whatsoever on wars etc...but often then pay the highest price. Sadly!

Hey Keshi...that's great. That's something like what CRY does. However what i do is I give a certain sum of money for a year for a family. We don't adopt the child/ family like your doing.

But then when you get these periodic reports and letters etc. from the child, it just makes it so much more personal.

There are so many of us who talk of doing things like this, but very few of us actually do it. Keshi, I'm sure your mother is really proud of you today and so is your dad whose looking down from the heavens on you and Baby Dee :)

Keshi said...

aww ty darlin Rat for spreading the msg! ur doing a good deed there.


**she was exclaiming how cud u do this? u don't know wr he came from, caste religion back ground and stuff.. it was my turn to get shocked..

Actually I hv nothing to say abt such ppl LOL!


jokes apart, adopting a child is not abt any of that. What she said defeats the whole purpose.


Keshi.

Keshi said...

aww Starry I didnt mean to make anyone feel bad tho. HUGS!

We r all human and we can get carried away in our selfish lil worlds every now n then. Thats ok. but we must always rem to come bak to LIFE.


**we take life for granted and do not ever look beyond our four walls.

so true! I used to be like that...now Im realising wut a short life we hv and wut ALOT we can do in that short time period.

ty Adisha!

:) I hope to do as much as I can before my time ends.

I hv been given a good family, a great childhood, an education, a job, enough money to survive and fun n laughter in my life. I may not be rich but I know that there r so many ppl out there who dun hv even 0.01% of what I hv in my life. So that means, I CAN help such a kid, with whatever I hv been GIVEN.

ty Hiren!

**its so gladdening to see such posts amidst the news of war, terror, politics, destruction, recession everywhere ...

yes...if only all those ppl can stop spending their money, time and energy on useless wars, just imagine how many more kids will be happy right now?

I wanna meet Baby Dee some day...thats my dream now :) Not to tell him that I HELPED him...but I just wanna see the smile on his face when I first see him hehe.

Keshi.

Keshi said...

yes Vesty TOGETHER we can do alot! well-said.


**If the USA had spent twenty percent of the cost in unecessary warfare on developement and humanitarian aid in under developed areas of our world. there would be thousands less war widows living off the parish and certaily less Fatcat Industrialists salting away their nefarious blood money in dodgy overseas tax havens.


I always wished for a DAY like that!

La vida Loca said...

I did quite a few times actually..still no dice. I feel down and rejected when I think of it.
Mostly over it though.

Ani said...

lovely post sweets.. really heart felt.. n it is a big responsibility

Priya said...

Hats off to you Keshi and wonder how I missed this post. If every human being is like you who adopts someone, we do not need an orphanage or children roaming without parents.

Łóòň Ġãĺ said...

You are an angel to have thought of something as good as this. May God bless you ...

Loads of love to you Keshi ... very few people have a heart as big and pure as yours. Hope all your prayers are answered .. wish you nothing but the best! :-)

And I see you've left the blogville ... sorry I haven't been here in a while ... but it was quite a shock to see you leaving the place ...

Hope to see you back sometime .. soon. Until then .. take care and keep in touch!

Mmmmuah and loads and loads of love :-)
