We have simply lost our ability to wonder. The reason is, we know everything. They say knowledge is good. Is it really that good? Don’t you think our knowledge has taken away one of the most fundamental rights of ours from us, the right to wonder?

Leave knowledge aside, what we call knowledge is nothing but information. It is worthwhile to loose our wonder for our knowledge; is our wonder so cheap that we loose it just for information?

Look at the babies; they look at the flying birds with wonder, with owe. We know everything about how the birds fly; but the cost is, we lost the wonder. Babies look at rising and setting son so beautifully, filled with wonder. And we, we know that sun is a gas of hydrogen and helium and the mesmerizing light coming out is nothing but some bloody nuclear fusion process which goes on there.

The question is, can we watch a sun-set or a sunrise, or flying birds as totally and as intently as this baby does? I really doubt! I guess, we should start learning from babies, their eyes, their fists and the way they walk. It will certainly make us more human!
