Father and Son

Dear Colleagues,

Father’s Day provides us with the opportunity to express gratitude to our fathers for their unconditional love and affection. We must commemorate and acknowledge the role that our fathers play in our lives. Throughout our lives, our fathers work extremely hard to provide us with a better future and father’s day gives us a chance to appreciate the uncountable sacrifices our fathers have made for us.  We hope you find the following short story inspirational and we all take some time out of hectic lives to make this father’s day special for our fathers.

Happy Reading and Have a Great Weekend with your Father!!

Father and Son

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old, highly educated son.

Suddenly a crow perched on their window.

The Father asked his Son, “What is this?”

The Son replied “It is a crow”.

After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the second time, “What is this?”

The Son said “Father, I just told you “It’s a crow”.

After a little while, the old Father asked his son the third time, “What is this?”

At this time some expression of irritation was felt in the Son’s tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. “It’s a crow, a crow”

A little after, the Father again asked his Son the fourth time, “What is this?”

This time the Son shouted at his Father, “Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again, although I have told you so many times ‘IT
IS A CROW’. Are you not able to understand this?”

A little while later the Father went to his room and came back with an old tattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-

“Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and
I replied all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again for 23 times. I
did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child”.

While the little child asked him 23 times “What is this”, the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and when
today the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.

Lesson to learn from This Story:

If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents because you owe them as much.
