Hi everyone please read this is a very nice article about parents
 
 
A conversation....this was narrated by an IAF pilot to IIT students on Special seminar for HUMAN RELATION.
 
My parents left for our native place on Thursday and we went to the airport to see them off. In fact, my father had never traveled by air before, so I just took this opportunity to make him experience the same. In spite of being asked to book tickets by train, I got them tickets on Jet Airways. The moment I handed over the tickets to him, he was surprised to see that I had booked them by air. The excitement was very apparent on his face, waiting for the time of travel. Just like a school boy, he was preparing himself on that day and we all went to the airport, right from using the trolley for his luggage, the baggage check-in and asking for window seat and waiting restlessly for the security check-in to happen. He was thoroughly enjoying himself and I, too, was overcome with joy watching him experience all these things. As they were about to go in for the security check-in, he walked up to me with tears in his eyes and thanked me. He became very emotional and it ! was not as if I had done something great but the fact that this meant a great deal to him.  When he said thanks, I told him there was no need to thank me. But later, thinking about the entire incident, I looked back at my life. As a child how many dreams our parents have made come true. Without understanding the financial situation, we ask for cricket bats, dresses, toys, outings, etc.
 
Irrespective of their affordability, they have catered to all our needs. Did we ever think about the sacrifices they had to make to accommodate many of our wishes? Did we ever say thanks for all that they have done for us?
Same way, today when it comes to our children, we always think that we should put them in a good school. Regardless of the amount of donation, we will ensure that we will have to give the child the best, theme parks, toys, etc. But we tend to forget that our parents have sacrificed a lot for our sake to see us happy, so it is our responsibility to ensure that their dreams are realized and what they failed to see when they were young, it is our responsibility to ensure that they experience all those and their life  is complete. Many times, when my parents had asked me some questions, I have actually answered back without patience. When my daughter asks me something, I have been very polite in answering. Now I realize how they would have felt at those moments. Let us realize that old age is a second childhood and just as we take care of our children, the same attention and same care need to be given to our parents and elders. Rather than my dad saying thank you to me, I would want to say sorry for making him wait so long for this small dream. I do realize how much he has sacrificed for my sake and I will do my best to give the best possible attention to all their wishes. Just because they are old does not mean that they will have to give up everything and keep sacrificing for their grandchildren also. They have wishes, too.
 
Take care of ur parents.

Wow... Very Beautiful and Thoughtful Reading... =D>

This seems to be a episode from our daily life, where time and again, we tend to forget the sacrifices and gifts of our Parents. We can not really count them, they are in plenty.  And what we give them in Return...:?: That is very minimal in comparison to their sacrifices. How could we forget them and the gratitude we owe to them...

Touchy.... Thanks for sharing this Beautiful thoughts with Us... Usual Smile We were really missing these nice thoughts from your side from long time...


(ps.. : Touchy.. Where have you been from so many months... YoIndia ki yaad nahin aayi kya.. ? Seems someone was really busy with his life Puzzled ! )

Thanks ALL!!!

Meena jee Its not true that aaj ke zamane ke bacche apne parents ka khayal nahi rakhte Infact its all depends on morals and ethics otherwise I have seen all my friends they care so much about their parents and they do everything as their parents did for them... It doesn't depend on generation it depends on Person

dear Touchy..
first of all thanks to you for sharing a very nice and close to heart story...
aur celmira ji ki baat pe mai kuch kahna chahunga....
kyonki jo baat ab mai likhane ja rahaa hun, wo meri khud ki experience hai aur maine bahoot deeply in sab ko face kiya hai.....
dar-asal hum jab bade ho jaate hain to bhi hum apane maa-baap ko dekhane ka nazriya nahi badal paate....
I mean hum ye sochate hain ki unko jo bhi cheese ki zaroorat hogi wo hamse kah denge ya fir hum unse kisi cheese ke liye poochate hain to wo mana kar dete hain.
are beta ab hum falan, falan chese ka kya karenge / hume to is chese ki kabhi zaroorat nahi padati etc...
jabki lag-bhag 80% matters me unki naa me bhi han hoti hai..
aur wo lagbhag ek bachche ki tarah ye chahte hain koi unhe zabardasti kare (pyaar se) theek waise hi jab hum khana khane ke liye sirf isliye mana kar dete the ki ab mummy khud apne haathon se khilayegi...
 
aur chunki aap abhi tak pahle wale impression me hote hain yani is cheese ko lightly le lete hain. aur baat ayi gayi ho jaati hai, lekin in choti - choti baaten unke man me kanhi zagah bana leti hai...
jaise ki story me likha hai ki father ne pahle train se jaane ke liye hi kaha tha aur zabardasti unhe flight ke tickets diye gaye the....

lekin haan yadi aapake maat-pita 60/70 saal ke ho chuke hain to please unse kisi bhi baat par bahas na karen.. chahe wo kitane bhi galat hon....
baad me aap unhe dheere dheere samjha sakte hain.

aur aksar apane papa ki jyadti (jo us waqt lagati hai.. ko maa
mere kahne ka matlab ye ki jaise jab hum padate the tab bhi jyadatar hum bina bataye hi kisi friend ke yahan ruk j
