We all smile, but I was not aware of its effect on others. There is a small girl in my neighborhood. Last day she was very happy and excited and when her mother asked her the reason, she said: “aa Afsal ikkaka adhyamayi enne nokki chirichu”(Malayalam), which means for the first time I gave a smile to her. I usually do not notice anything around while walking. I just go like a rocket. But that day my shoelace got untied, so I took a pause. During that time she passed that way and I smiled at her. The next day her mother said this to my mother.
When I heard this I realized the power of a smile, a smile is not just stretching of our lip. The best thing we can do is make other people happy and smiling is the simplest solution. Spread smile.
“A simple smile. That’s the start of opening your heart and being compassionate to others.” — Dalai Lama
