The way, kids look into a situation or scene is entirely different, from the way we see it. They see everything as a story, filled with characters, imagination and interesting things that can capture their rapt attention. The recently released movie, “Tamasha” also happened to highlight this in quite a beautiful way. We probably imagine things only in a dream, but to a child it’s always a story that’s unraveling in front of them.
My interaction with several of my cousin’s kids and neighbors kids has given me interesting insights and an idea of their imaginations. Immediately after school, they come back with fresh memories, new stories, almost on a daily basis. It may have been a small incident that happened, but to them it was a story that had a beginning, middle and an end.
The story began right from the entrance where he was enchanted by the giant building that hosted the aquarium, which also happened to be in a tunnel form. He referred to this as the underwater castle, which he obtained from the pack, by cutting out neatly along the dotted lines
He began by giving a creative name to all the fishes he had seen in the aquarium. One of them was of course his favourite Nemo which he happened to recollect from the famous movie, Finding Nemo. He began by telling how these fishes and sea horses were all housed inside one giant huge aquarium. He said that the fishes were also part of a big gang and the sharks were the villains.
In particular Nemo was the most favourite among all fishes and was the head of this gang. The sharks were the villains, which kept attacking them and eating them. These fishes began to then swim away quickly before the sharks could swallow them.
At a later stage in time, the sharks were then transferred to a different tank while the fishes were kept separate. This allowed a fearless movement for fishes and they were now much safer, thanks to the true heroes in the form of aquarium guards
