There was an old man named James who lived in the village with his wife. His son lived in the city.
James wanted to see his son so he decided to go to town to see his son. He was very excited to see his son but unfortunately the door was opened by someone else.
James asked about his son and learned that his son had shifted from that house and was now living in a different place. He felt disappointed.
He thought for a while and then went to the neighbors where he got his son’s office address. He thanked the neighbor and went to his son’s office.
James arrives at the office and inquires about his son at the reception. There the receptionist called her son’s office and told him about his father’s arrival. The son was overjoyed at his father’s arrival and asked the receptionist to send his father to his office.
When James entered the office, his son’s eyes filled with tears as he saw his father in front of him. For a while the two had a simple conversation and then James said to his son, “Son.. your mother wants to see you.. can you come home with me?”
The son replied, “Sorry dad, I can’t come home now because I have a load of work and it will be difficult to manage if I leave now.”
James smiled and said, “Okay.. you can do your thing. I’ll go to the village in the evening.”
Grieving, the son begged his father to stay with him for a few days, but James refused, saying, “I didn’t want to bother you or burden you while you were busy with your work.” “
“Hopefully if you ever have time, come to us as your mother and I’ll be very happy to see you.” James said and left.
After some days the son finished his work and thought of his father coming. He was upset and felt guilty for leaving his father alone at that time.
So he took leave from his office and went to his village to meet his parents but he was surprised to see that his parents were not at their house.
When he inquires about it, he is shocked to learn that his parents have left the place and are now moving to another place. The son got the information from the neighbor and reached there.
The son saw that the place looked like a graveyard.. His eyes filled with tears and he slowly walked towards the place.
From a distance he saw a hand waving towards him. He looked closer and saw that it was his father. The son ran and hugged him.
James said, “What’s wrong, why are you crying?” The son said nothing and bowed his head.
James wiped away his tears, “Why are you sad? Did something go wrong?”
The son replied, “No father.. I never thought to see such a situation.. Why do you live here? Why did you leave that house in the village?”
James replied son…I took a loan for your education and when you moved to the city but due to loss in farming I could not repay that loan.
I came to you but you were already worried about your work and I didn’t want to burden you with that worry. So I had to sell my house to pay off this loan.”
The son whispered, “But you could have told me.. I am your son..”
James replied son.. I didn’t want to hurt you.. that’s why I kept quiet.. I just want your happiness..
The son hugged his father tightly and apologized for not being able to help him and let him go that day. He asked for his forgiveness.
James replied, “Don’t be sorry son.. I’m glad to see you and all I want is for you to spend some time with us. We love you so much and will go to town to see you in this old age.” It’s difficult.
Visit us whenever you have time. Your mother and I will see you more, even if only for a short time.
Moral: Parents always work to provide the best for their children. Parents never tell their child about the hardships and difficulties they face.
Make time for parents when they need you in their old age. Don’t leave them behind because they are the real reason for your success.Recommend0 Simily SnapsPublished in
