Inspirational and Heart Touching Story
"The 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 pigeon perched on their window.
The Father asked his Son, "What is this?"
The Son replied "It is a pigeon".

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 pigeon".

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 pigeon, a pigeon"

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 PIGEON'.
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 pigeon was sitting on the window My Son asked me 23 times what it was,
I replied to him all 23 times that it
was a Pigeon. 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

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.
