The child is the father of the man

I had heard of this slogan a long way back, but had no inkling of its meaning till now.
My old man is a child now with that sweet smile, and a laughter in his eyes.

He has lost his power of speech, and hence his try to make us understand with his gestures and babble of words is like an infant.

During a b' fast or a lunch a finger full of food from him is just like getting a treat from a kid, as a present for the care, love, medications and attention.

I had sometimes wondered how the priests in the temple take care of the deity, with concern, the bath, the robes and the flower decorations, i seem to do the same , but with a difference, my deity offers a smile and a vanakkam too.
