An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along
with his 45 year’s 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: -

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
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
