An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45-year 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 __expression of irritation was felt in the Son'stone 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 notable to understand this?" A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an oldtattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to readthat 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, whena crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time h e asked me the same question againand 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 Fatherhad felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and when today theFather asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.


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.
