The story raises the moral issue that there is a sharp contrast between an adult’s perspective of life and the worldview of a little child. The adult’s perspective on life is different from that of a child because of the difference in their experience of life. A child’s thought, actions and reactions are natural and are from his heart in accordance with what is right in his quite narrow perspective. On the other hand, an adult who has seen many things in life has to consider before speaking or reacting by thinking of the society. For the children, everything has a happy ending but the adults know that this is not possible. Hope it helps!
