It was a walk along the country side, and the scenes was picturesque, but one thing caught my lens and that was a kid tied to his waist with a rope to a window sill.
Something just seemed out of order, there was even a comment later, "the child is tied and the dog is let loose."
The families of old had a string of offspring , the elder child always baby sitting the younger ones, may be this child is the first in the family and the next is on the way .
I have even heard of workers giving a dot of opium to the kids and sending them off to a blissful sleep while they worked, but this sure caught me .
Recalling i have heard stories that i was an infant vagabond loafing the neighborhood
What ever, the children of now are so quick and hyper active that they cannot be contained in a play pen, or tied by a rope, may they be allowed to roam and bring on their creativity for the benefit of the world and the comfort of us all.
