  4. Mother’s Practical Advice

    Narayana, a tiny farmer lives in his small house in Atreyapuram village. He has a wife Rangamma and a two year old son. His mother Gangamma also lives with him in the house. Recent cyclonic rains have played havoc with his house and left many holes on the roof.

    As he has been busy with his farm work, the house repair has been getting postponed. His mother and wife have persuaded him to finish the work as his infant boy is being exposed to sun and rain.

    One fine morning, Narayana brought the required material to repair his tached roof.
    Himself assisted by his wife have started the work. Time passed and it was getting hot by the noon. Gangamma requested them to stop their work and resume after lunch and by that time the sun may also not be that severe. But, they continued with the work. His son has already chidded her for her advice. Gangamma was getting restless although, she was taking care of the kid inside.

    Half an hour later, Gangamma came out of the house carraying his grandson and was standing in the hot sun. His son got angry and said ” Amma , what happned, why you have brought the infant kid and exposing him to sun unnecessarily” . Ganagamma replied “ Look son, I am also having the same problem, my son is also working in the hot sun for quite some time. But, he is not listening to me, so far.”.

    Her mother’s statement now worked on him and came down quickly and apologized to her mother. They had a good lunch and resumed the work in the afternoon.

    Friends: 1) Mother’s Love is so great. 2) you can empathize with others if you can genuinely feel their concern.
