Whenever we think of comfort it is definitely home, where our parents are. We know that no matter what, our parents love us selflessly and that they will never ever stop loving us. And because we know they will never hurt us, we tend to take them for granted. When we stop getting things from them and when they become old, we believe that they are of no use anymore and we leave them on their own or don’t take care f them and if we ever do we get irritated by their behavior and treat them harshly. Which is not the right thing to do. Our parents lived their lives providing for us and sculpting us, and what do they get in the end? Rejection! That is what that needs to stop!

Father asked son...

Once, an 80-year-old man was sitting on the couch in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son when a crow suddenly rested on their window.

The Father asked his Son…“What is this?” The Son responded…“It is a crow”.

The son was irritated...

After a while, the Father asked his son the same question again, “What is this?” The Son replied, “I have already told you “It’s a crow”.

Again after few minutes, the old man asked his son the 3rd time, "What is this?” At this point, the son was irritated and his tone revealed the same when he replied to his to the old man with a rebuff, “It’s a crow, a crow, a crow”.

But after some time the old man again asked his son, “What is this?”

The son shouted...

The son got so irritated that he shouted at his father “Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again after I told you multiple times that ‘IT IS A CROW’. Can't you understand this?"

Rugged Diary

After some time the old man went to his room and came back with an old, rugged diary, which he had maintained since his son was born. He then opened a page and asked his son to read that page.

The Diary read...

“Today my little son who is 3 years old was sitting with me on the couch when a crow was resting on the window. The little one 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 23 times. I did not feel irritated at all instead I felt affection for my innocent child”.

Son's behaviour

When the little child asked his father 23 times “What is this”, the Father felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and today when the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the son got irritated and annoyed.
