The inevitable question surfaced – “Where do people go after dying?”.
Dhruv: Nanu, where do people go after dying?
Nanu: People after dying go to God.
Dhruv (placing his hand over his heart):
But, God lives here in my heart.
He meant how can he hold (so many) people in his heart because he is a small child.
My parents were astonished with his answer. Even I did not know how he got this understanding that God lives in our hearts but then, now, I am not the only one who alone influences his thought process. His interaction in the social space extends beyond his family to his school, school bus, friends and of course television too.
And then I am sure I have to find further explanations to “Who are angels?, Do they stay in the same house? Do they eat food or sleep?” or questions which are, at present, beyond my imagination.
Would you like to share with me how would you handle this question?
