Be considerate to your parents

  • 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 2nd time, "What is
    this?"

    The Son said "Father, I have just now told you "It's a crow".

    After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time,
    What is this?"

    At this time some ex-pression 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 t he 4th 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 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 to him 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.

    So..

    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.
