Hopeful for a better tomorrow

A kid with a book under a lantern in the dark
There could be only one thing for this little girl that gives her energy and enthusiasm to work and study hard; that is the hope for a better tomorrow.

Perhaps she has understood that she has to be educated if her dreams has to be realized.
May be her father or forefathers have told her that she has get education to be able to lighten her dark nights which is because of unjust treatment the officials of her time.

Or may be, her eyes are full of hopes because she sees something with here childish sincere innocence that we are not able to see, thus she grows hopes and optimism in her mind and heart that tomorrow definitely would be a better day therefore she doesn’t sleep until late in the dark under a lantern light and study and work hard.
That is what we have to learn from her.
