One day while
in my job, I met a person, who was in his late fifties. A dashing man and he
happened to be one of my prestigious client, we earned handsome revenues from
him. I had been in touch since 12-13 years, so there was a personal touch with
him too.
One day, while
discussing my product promotion, I just happened to ask him about his children,
where they were and what they were doing. It was part of our job to know the
client well for further promotion of our products.
He replied
plainly, “Sorry, I don’t have kids.”
The color of
my face changed and I regretted to have delved into the question.
I apologized
him profusely for my question.
Very boldly he
said, “Why you are feeling so sorry? I am happy that I don’t have kids.”
“Sorry Sir, I

from these expectations n anxiety n you will be surprised that we both don’t
have any major complications and I find reason simple that we don’t have any
botheration’s….so, relax Madame, don’t blame yourself for questioning me. Many
people question me and I reply Bindaas n people are amazed at my attitude.” He
explained in simple words.
I was
speechless, no words to say.
Somewhere, he
was right. There are people who have breathed their last in expectation of
their children returning back to them.
When one sees
the pain around then the people’s perception change.
I am thankful
to God that our parents are blessed to have us and I am blessed to have caring
kids else my soul would have been in pain.
So, guys,
don’t let down your parents. Take care of them and envelop yourself with their

day, we all have to pass through this phase and believe in firmly,
“As you sow,
so you reap.”
