Love, Care.. Reality Check.
Incident is small but it had a great impact on my Heart and Soul. I was at bank to complete some formalities, waiting for my turn. There was little rush than usual at that hour. Few minutes later, father son duo entered in the bank. Father was too old to even walk, but his son was holding his hand. Carefully he made him sit on a chair besides me. His father sitting on a chair with a cane in one hand was constantly following his son with his eyes. I thought may be it was necessity for some procedure that needed father’s presence. Witnessing such a beautiful bonding between father and son in today’s world, where we hear children abandons their old parents made me happy. His father was rather lucky to have an obidient son, who still looks after him, cares for him and accompanies him leaving his own work aside. What was more beautiful was father still cares for his grownup son that reflects in his eyes. By then his son came near him, carefully he helped him to stand and took him at one counter. Father signed some documents. After completion of signature formalities, Within a second I saw his son asked him to sit signalling at the chair. Father took slow but careful steps towards the chair, while his son was busy enquiring something on the counter, then busy talking on cellular. All this while not even once he cared to glance at his father.
Few minutes later his son came near him and said something like, “I got a call from office, they are waiting for me.. it’s urgent. You hire a cab n reach home.” And left hurriedly not even intrested what his father has to say. I was shocked by this sudden change in his behaviour. I didn’t saw any love or care in his eyes. He asked his father to accompy with him just because he needed his signature on papers as it was unavoidable… DISGUSTING.
A son who seemed so obidient and caring now showed his true colors. His father took nearly a minute to reach at nearby chair, who can’t even stand without support, how can he left him to reach home all alone safely?? Yes he must have reached home safely, coz I believe God take care of Good Souls.
I didn’t knew them except this brief encounter, but then I still saw pain in his father’s eyes with lots of unanswered questions.
How can his son forget his childhood days, the time and money spent by his father for family’s happiness or to fulfill his demands. The hands that must have holded him in rush, the comforting hand that must have pacified him when something scared him and most important the man because of whom he was what he wanted to be, settled and able to earn position in society.
The incident brought tears in my eyes. I came to know the world is not what we think.. All beautiful, filled with love. There are few who still don’t know the real value of Love, Relationship and Parents.
