Shelly – THE MERMAID "The world is what you perceive "

Today the world around you has a lot to offer you! But it is only how you perceive your circumstances that make all the difference in life. And this is the reason why protecting your children from the vicious environment is not enough, explaining to them how they can make the society a better place for their friends and family is probably equally or more important. 
Keeping the same in mind we are going to frame this sweet little story.

Shelly!  
Wondering who she is? 
Well, she is our storyteller – The little mermaid. She wears painted shells on her ears and spends her evenings sitting on her favourite rock and looking at the mermaid the dolphins\’ dance in the sea. Sometimes, when she is in a rather melancholic mood, she sings out her favourite melodies to the sweetest and youngest daffodils. Though the mermaid enjoys singing, yet it is only the art of story-telling that is capable of stirring her heart the most. Even after being a mermaid Shelly is a little different from her group, for while the other mermaids shied away from any human presence, Shelly, she loved narrating stories to them. 
So here is our Shelly for you,  
\”Hi friends, today, I will tell you the story of the two little girls, vivitha and smithika, who through the common bond of humanity, became the best of the best friends. Vivitha, a second grader, had been just admitted to a new school, where, even after the passage of two weeks, she had remained unsuccessful at making friends. After all, in those times, it wasn’t easy for a second grader to let go off their apprehensions and make new and interesting friends. 
So on this particular day, after quickly finishing her lunch, Vivitha ran straight for a swing in the playground. But while she ran she did not notice a huge rock stuck on her way and unfortunately, tripped over and fell on her face. At a little distance, in groups of four and five, her classmates were sitting and while nobody really cared and blatantly ignored her great fall, Smithika immediately rushed over. She helped her stand on her feet and took her to the first aid room where Vivitha was soundly treated. Soon after, the two girls got into long and winding conversations and as a matter of fact, Smithika even introduced Vivitha to her two other friends.         
When Vivitha came back home that day she told her mom, \”Mother, I thought that in my new school no one was good enough to be friends with me and yet, today, smithika completely changed my perspective on things and people. Thanks to her, I got a good person and a bunch of new friends as well!\” to which her mother replied \”There are a lot of good people in this world, but in order to befriend them you need to be a good person as well. Remember, your small act of kindness can make a great difference in someone’s life. Exactly how your friend’s actions made in yours” 
After that, she kissed Vivitha on her forehead and asked her to go to bed. 
Shelly got up from the rock and waved goodbye. She will now be heading to play sea diving, a sport she enjoyed very much. And that should not surprise our readers for, after all, she is a mermaid. 
Will meet you all with a new story next week. Until then, Thank you.  And a special thanks to one such friend of mine Ackansha Deoli for making this post better and beautiful.
