    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

    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 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 h e 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.


    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. When I am old, I do not want my child to repeat the words when
    the crow perches on my window".

    One kind word can warm three winter months (Japanese proverb)
