Siven Wonders of the world, a child's perspective!!

When we think of Seven Wonders of the World, the picture that comes before our eyes is of buildings which are splendid, ornamental and architecteral[y  perfect monuments.Have you ever considered  this aspect from a child's point of view. Some children are very imaginative and sensitive. They deal with some  issues according to their own thoughts,which leave the adults dumb struck.
                              My sister recently told me that she asked her sixth class children to write, what are the seven wonders of the world. Though there were some differences, most of the pupils wrote
1.The Pyramids
2. The Taj Mahal
3.The Grand Canyon
4. The Panama Canal
5. The Empire State Building
6 . St. Peter Basilica
7. The  Great Wall Of  China 

When the note books  were collected, the teacher saw that one girl was still writing. The   child said, ''One minute Ma'am''. When this child gave the notebook,the teacher opened her's first of all.  She  read out  the  seven wonders, written by the  girl.
1. To Touch
2, To See. 
3. To Feel
4.  To Hear
5.  To Taste
6. To Laugh and
7. To  Love.  

The whole Class  was  astounded! There was pin drop silence in the class. We never  bother  to think about the most wondrous things of life. The most precious things in life cannot be sold or bought. God has given us  such wonderful gifts, which no man can ever construct.


  1. Absolutely love this post Ma'am and the beauty cum essence of life is indeed our wonders:)
