Teddy Bear!

I finished my security check. I had two hours time to board my flight. I had a copy of frozen thoughts magazine for company. The book kept me engrossed until a loud hue and cry disturbed me. It belonged to a little kid who was not ready to let go of his teddy bear at the security check point. I could see his father trying to convince him but the child was not giving up that easily. His cry only grew louder. Looking helpless, his father held the little fellow up and kept two of his suitcases in the screening track for the luggages to be scanned. Looking at the suitcase move automatically, the child now stopped crying and his eyes were fixed on the other end of the screening track. The suitcases came out and his mother collected the suitcases. From the distance I saw, I could make out that the child’s father was trying to explain the little fellow that his teddy will also come back to him safely. The parting was just for a few seconds.

The teddy bear went through the screening check and came out. As soon as the teddy came out, the kid ran and picked it up joyously. The smile was back on that innocent face and all of us sitting there in the waiting lounge went back to our work.

I could not read any more. I was just reflecting on the thought that today we are living in a world where even a little kid’s teddy bear has to be screened. Such are the security issues and problems. But the little child did not know why his teddy bear had to be sent through the screening device. In fact the screening device would have looked like another toy to the kid – a toy which takes in objects and gives out objects automatically. His world is devoid of bomb scares, violence and bloodshed.

Will all of us ever have a world like that???!!!!

    Transition was smooth and your thoughts on how the baby would have perceived the Security check was nice.. 🙂

    Let us hope we will have a world like that soon 🙂
