The caring son

mom and son 2Value- Right Conduct

Sub value- Respect, Love


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

After she finished eating, her son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took her to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed her hair and fitted her 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 her mother

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 mother

The restaurant went silent.


Let us not forget our parents when they grow old. We should not be embarrassed about their looks or behaviour as they age. No one can love selflessly like our parents esp our mothers. Always have gratitude for what they have done for us. Show love and respect to them.
