Respect your parents. One day, they won’t be here with you. ( A Short Story Must Read )
“After his father passed away, he decided to leave his mother at old age home and visited her on and off.
Once he received a call from old age home….Mom very serious ….. please come to visit.
The man went and saw mom very critical, on her dying bed.
He asked: Mom what can I do for you?
Mom replied… “Please install fans in the old age home, there are none…. Also put a fridge for betterment of food because many times I slept without food”.
He was surprised and asked: mom, while you were here you never complained, now you have few hours left and you are telling me all this, why?
Mom replied…..”it’s OK dear, I’ve managed with the heat, hunger & pain, but when your children will send you here, I am afraid you will not be able to manage!
She warned me vehemently to take care with what I left behind and said that this is why she wants to modernize the old age home because she feared that one day, perhaps, my children would abandon me there and I would experience what she did. Her final words were, “What you give is what you get.”
