Father's Love

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 year’s 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 expression of irritation was felt in the Son’s tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. “It’s a crow, a crow, a crow”.

A little after, the Father again asked his Son the 4th time, “What is this?”

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 this?”

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 not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child”.

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.

 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 to make me a person presentable in the society today”.

  1. Many of the stories are highly inspiring. Can we use these stories among children to teach them moral values? Will there be a copy right issue? Please guide.

  2. THis was a nice story.That is how is our Father in heaven.”As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.” Psalms 103:13

  3. My son we to the most prestigious university in America
    If I say some thing he does not like he says your are do stupid.
    Once he told me your are stupid as hell.
    Once my dream was to bring him to America and give him the best of education no matter what it takes. I drove taxi for fifteen years with a chronic back pain just to give my kids the best but today I regret because they got wondeful education from the most prestigious schools but do not have the very basics of life. Love.
    I nevef ate is good restuarant in my life thinking one day my son will take me and I will happily eat what I want but my son never ever ask me how Im doing he hides away from me
    I’m still driving taxi to our living not my living.

  4. Wow, it's incredible story which is so touching….
    Sometimes I ask myself; is there any father like in the story? I mean the one who keeps writing a journal/diary about his son/daughter. It's like the father (in the story) have planned it the plot of the story in order to test his son.
    Then, I ask my self "Do I need to write a journal like that father?"
    I think that's the (other) purpose of a journal. Keep on writing!

  5. Thanks you very much for sharing this lovely story. Really very touching… hope you will share few more..thanks

  6. I love the story. I’m searching everywhere to find who wrote this. Please attach authors to the stories. I am a teacher and want to give proper credit to the author as I use all kinds of stories with my students. If I am teaching them proper citation, it would be nice to see adults follow the same rules.

  7. I’m attempting to undermine the foundation of Christian belief… I am not within just the office environment of offending Those. I uncover the textbooks upholding certain values that I imagine are important, such as existence is enormously profitable and this entire world is an terribly beautiful Room. We must do what we can towards make improvements to the quantity of knowledge inside the world wide.
