Rural Children

Posted on at

Upon completion of the project whether it is big or small make its designers and workers happy. This routine imaginations is going to be practice since being children up to advance.

I just had a trip from Kabul to Badakhshan province during Eid ul Qurban days to pass my remaining off days there. I faced a group of happy children when they were playing beside the famous river called Kookcha River.

They seemed very busy while building a small tower called Khanagaki Regi means small house made by sand. They were believed that people can finally are successful after working hard. Their team consisted of five children which 3 boys and two girls.

They had just estimated specific time to complete their small tower in 30 minutes. When I asked them why are you going to estimate 30 minutes for completion of your project?

Because we want to estimate each and everything from now and practice estimation and the exact work, and by this we will know our power of planning and estimation; they replied.

Why are you so happy right now? I asked.

Because we have completed our project and still we have 5 minutes remained; they replied.

I took their pictures and though with myself about rural children and their power of talent and estimation.

Most of the children living in the cities are busy with electrical devices, games, mobiles, films and other things. But children living in the rural areas are thinking about projects, time, estimation, completion, success and other valuable things. Because there is no electricity, no games, no mobiles or no TV. Just they think about whatever they read in the school and written in their books.

By writing this article, I have a message to all parents who are living in the cities that they should be careful about their children and keep them away from electrical devices, games, films and other things.
