A traveller’s realization: People are divided by borders but united by emotions
How wonderful it would be for us travelaholics if the world was without borders!
Oh! what fun it would be to travel across countries and continents without worrying about visas, passports and stampings.
We would travel like the migratory birds across millions of miles in search of new experiences and adventures.
We would gently drift across international borders like the clouds in the sky.
Maybe one day the world would be one and our children would be able to travel across the world with the freedom of the birds.
Why do these thoughts arise in me?
It is because what I observe about people in my travels. Be it India, Europe, China, Thailand or any other country, if you take out the external trappings and peel out the layers, intrinsically people are the same everywhere.
They all love and hate, laugh and cry, eat and drink, have families and have their daily routines, have beliefs and egos everyone is on the job of earning their livelihood in their own way and all of them are striving for those moments of happiness.
Wherever you go the emotions of Love, Joy, Anger, Compassion, and Fear bind people of all races into one common thread.
And nowhere is this oneness, this universality more evident than in the children of the world.
During our travels though we admire the breathtaking natural sites and the awe inspiring man made wonders, we are equally if not more, fascinated by the people around us.
I present here some photos from my travels which captures children from different parts of the world.
Hope you liked our photos and the emotions associated with them.
We will be back with more photos of people in different moods from around the world in one of our upcoming posts.
