Kuzhandhaiyum Deivamum

There is an age old proverb in tamil...that babies and god are alike...faced an incident sometime back which made me to revisit that proverb .....banglore vantha pudhusula friends kooda ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness) koviluku poi irunthen...its in a place called Yashwantpur..which is around 2 hrs journey from where i stay in blore...got up early morning to avoid the hot afternoon sun and boarded the 6 AM bus...reached there at around 8.30...wow..it WAS a sight to behold...onnu cleara therinjuthu...it was definitely not a temple built with rupee but with dollars and dinars....very richly done and beautifully decorated...pity we couldnt catch it in its glory at night as we left midday...well..its built like a hill...atleast u'll get the feeling of climbing one....Tirupathi venkya ingaiyum paakalam...thoonilayum thurumbilayum irukavaraukkaga..oru sannadhi iruku...looked cute, as he is always :)... ( konjam friendlya ipdi thaan naanga pesikuvoam...athellam kandukapdathu ;))..after crossing few more sannadhis reached the main hall....its a huge one..sorry HUGE HALL....seriously big...it had three murthis..of radha krishna and ..hmm..rest i forgot...(refresh panikavachum thirumba poanum)...prayer halla..so sathama moochu vitta kooda muraichi paapaanga....there i saw something which was the trigger for the blog... (eppadi...atlast matteruku vanten:))...rendu family...onnu local kannadiga...and other one..guess some marwaris...they had come for darshan..with their kids...the kids wud've been hardly an year or two old....they were playing and disturbing their parents who were trying to medidate...soon those kids started playing together...ennamo pesikuthunga...saami padatha paathu onnu innonuthuku kathailaam solluthu...ithu sirikuthu....they gelled well....and were chattering like anything..as if some long lost friends where meeting...soon their parents finished their prayers..and were all smiles at their kids playing....funny part was...they cudnt understand each other..as neither of the family members spoke english or hindi....strange it was....grown ups, we are called and we couldnt understand each other...with all the language skills at our disposal..but those kuttis...who i seriously doubt can say anything other than Amma appa...were "conversing" freely among themselves......just like god...we pray to him in kannada..english..hindi..ennalaam lanugage irukko...athila ennalaam prayers iruko....ellathilaiyum pray panroam...does tht mean...greek god doesnt know spanish...or kannada god wont understand punjabi...pesa mudiyathavanga appo pray panna mudiyatha...wont god bless them...it was simple...LOVE has no language..and GOD is nothing but LOVE...anbey sivamnu summava solraanga.....it was a revelation for me...blore vanthu 3 years aguthu..i am yet to learn kannada...but tht is hardly a hinderance here..(still no excuse for not learning kannada though)...well...guess went bit over head... but it was really an amazing experience...

Well, jokes apart, it truly is amazing how kids can communicate so easily and cross the language barriers. But on reflection, I felt unlike adults, kids have a common language - mazhalai. That is not dependent on the mother tongue at all. I see that everyday in the way my son communicates with his friends here. They are all two year olds and they play happily with each other, talk with each other, while we adults struggle to communicate in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi etc....

Kannadasan was right when he said :
Eerezhu mozhigalile yenna mozhi pillai mozhi
kallamatra vellai mozhi
devan thandha deivamozhi
