Little tale...

Just think, are we celebrating Christmas in the right way? Are we being Santa to the right people?

Small conversation between a poor kid and his mother 

Mom (maa), why do we sell red caps in December ?

The curious kid settles on the footpath 

Who is this Santa?

Santa brings gifts, especially for the poor kids who don't get any.

Then why can't they be my Santa maa ? Why can't the give me gifts?…
