Story of Son and Father:
A son took his aged father to a restaurant for dinner. Father being very old and weak, dropped food on his shirt and trousers while eating. Other diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm.
After father finished eating, his son quietly took him to the washroom with no embarrassment. He wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly. When they came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that. People sitting around were not appreciating the events. The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father.
At that time, an old man among the diners called out to the son and asked him, “Don’t you think you have left something behind?”.
The son replied, “No sir, I haven’t”.
The old man retorted, “Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father”.
The restaurant went silent.
Lesson: “No matter who you are. No matter where you are. You should always love and care for those who made us and nurtured us. !!”
Parents gave their child everything they could or more than they could, without asking anything in return. So don’t show your back when it is your turn !!
To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honours.
