An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with
his 45 year 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 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 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 
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 nott all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent 
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.So.. 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 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
Thanks for spending ur time on reading this mail

to all ur friends...
