    ........Touching Heart

    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 ex-pression 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.

    Thanks for spending ur time on reading this mail ...
