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
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, â
“What is this?”
The Son said “Father, I have
just now told you it’s a

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
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 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.

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.
