Pls take care of 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 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 crow".

A little after, the Father again asked his Son the 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. From today say this aloud, "I

want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me.

They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heat to make me a person presentable in the society today".

Say a prayer to God, "I will serve my old parents in the BEST way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave."

I dare to make a different comment on the story.

A child of 3 years asks the question many times but you like it because the child is beginning to learn to speak and is also trying to know the world around. But if the same question is asked by an old man repeatedly, it would be stupid of him - he is supposed to have learned to speak and also to have known the world around. If he behaves like a child, one cannot but get irritated!

It is true that one must have patience with one's parents and give them due respect. Not because they have brought us up but because all persons need to be treated with respect, specially elders. Parents bring up their children because of the parents' own biological programming and because God has made us do it as part of His plan for the world.

But the parent expecting respect because he/she had brought up the son/daughter is to derate the filial affection - as if it is a business transaction. The respect should not be as a quid-pro-quo but natural. So should it be to any elder, or for that matter, any colleague or any child.

Incidentally, my age is 70+ and I am a grandfather four-times over.
