Be Brave My Love
My love, as you wake up in the morning and reach for the sky... BE EXCITED! What a blessing it is to have a full day to play, learn and make a difference.
My love, as you step into the bathroom to get ready for the day... THINK OF SOMEONE YOU LOVE! Share why you appreciate them, and show them your love.
My love, as you head to school for a day full of fun and learning... DREAM BIG! You can cross the monkey bars or fly to the moon. You can do anything that you set your mind and heart to.
Be Brave my Love

Ajeet Singh: The Invincible Lion
Introducing the story of Ajeet: the Invincible Lion, a story that is also a shabd! Or is it a shabd that is also a story...?
Hi! My name is Ajeet Singh. My name means that I am an invincible lion. Sometimes I'm brave and fearless like a lion, and sometimes I'm not. After all, I'm just a kid. I learn so much every day.
At school there are some kids that bother me so much! It's really hard because there are 5 of them and only 1 of me.
They don't share or take turns. They think they are the best at everything and they get mad when I play with the toys. It's really hard to be around them.
I try to talk to them nicely, but it doesn't help. I try to ignore them, but it's so hard. I try everything, but they won't stop bothering me! I don't know what to do.
I come home and tell Mumma. She tells me to find the happiest kids with the biggest smiles at school and play with them instead. She tells me that everything is going to be okay and reminds me that I am an invincible lion.

The world used two main people to create the drama of ugliness and violence. One was the emperor and one was a person in the emperor’s court. His name was Chandu, ...
