Father and Son

A son took his old father to a  restaurant for an evening dinner.  
Father being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on  his shirt and trousers.   
Others diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm.

After he finished eating,  his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him  to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted  his spectacles firmly.  When they came out,  the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that.

The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father.

At that time, an  old man amongst the diners called out to the son and asked him, "Don't you think you have left something behind?".

The son replied, "No sir, I haven't".

The old man retorted, "Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father".

Two Apples

A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile, "My sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?"
The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.
The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said, "Mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one."

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement.  Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.

Value & Carefulness

JRD Tata had a friend who used to say that he misplaces and loses his pen very often. Thus he uses only very cheap pens so that he need not worry about losing them. He was however worried about his carelessness .

JRD suggested to him to buy the costliest pen he could afford and see what happens. 

He did that and purchased a 22 carat gold Cross pen. 

After nearly six months JRD met him and asked him if he continues to misplace his pen. 

His friend said that he was now very careful about his costly pen and he is surprised how he has changed! 

JRD then explained to him that actually it was the value of the pen that made the difference and there was nothing wrong with him as a person!

This is what happens in our life. We are careful with things that we value most.

If we value our health, we will be careful about what and how we eat;
if we value our friends, we will treat them with respect;
if we value money, we will be careful while spending;
if we value our time, we will not waste it.
if we value relationship we will not break it.

Carefulness is a basic trait all of us have,we know when to be careful! 

Carelessness only shows what we don't value
