A son walks the path of respect

This is a story of father, grandfather and son.

Moral(s) of the story: respect

Once there was a village named Singapuram. There lived a carpenter named Kasi. He had a younger son who was five years old. His name was Vasu. Kasi’s father Ramu was too old and he also stayed with them in their house. Kasi began to think that his father is of no use to him since he became too old and was unable to do any work. Kasi always spoke angrily to his father. Ramu was old man and he remained silently whenever Kasi spoke in anger.

One day, Kasi gave food in a clay plate for his father to eat. Being too old, Ramu was not able to hold the clay plate properly. He dropped it and the clay plate broke off. Kasi became very angry and scolded his father. Vasu observed his father’s behaviour towards his grandfather.

The next day , Kasi gave a new clay plate to his father. He went to work. When he came back, he was angry to see the new clay plate broken into pieces. He scolded his father badly and warned him, “Hey old man, if you break the next clay plate, there will be no food for you and you will have to leave the house”. Vasu was listening to his father’s words silently.

Next day, in the evening, when Kasi came back to home after his work, he saw his son Vasu doing some work with his carpentry tools. He was surprised to see this and happily went near him, and asked Vasu “ What are you doing my son?” Vasu replied “Dad, I am making a wooden plate for you. When you grow old, I will give you this wooden plate so that you will not break it and I do not have to send you out of the house”

Kasi realized his mistake on hearing his son’s words. He felt sorry for hurting his aged father. He apologised to his father for his mistakes and his angry words. Kasi, Vasu and his grandfather used to eat dinner together that day onward.


Moral:

Respect your elders. Do not let your parents down; they are the ones to bring you up.
