Recently, I was involved in a project, whose focus was on the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

The stall that I manned was for the recycling and repurposing of old CDs.
Being a movie buff, I had a whole collection of old CDs that I had taken with me for this recycling project. My teammates and I planned to demonstrate how one could use these old CDs to make candle holders, coasters, wall hangings, and the like.
Due to the limited time available, we could only demonstrate our projects, and could not get people to try them out.
People came in batches to the stall. While we were busy, a little boy asked me, “Could I have this CD?”
I was happy to see his keen interest and said, “Sorry, this is only a demo piece and I cannot give this to you, but now that you have seen how it is done, you can try it out at home yourself, hmm?”
He replied, “No, not that CD. I would like that CD.”
He pointed to one of my old movie CDs and said, “Can I have that CD (pointing to a children’s animated film). I haven’t watched that movie yet.”
I smiled. The things kids say….most unexpected too!
