PARENTS ARE PRECIOUS!!

PARENTS ARE PRECIOUS!!

This was narrated by an IAF pilot at
a Seminar recently on Human Relations
:

Venkatesh Balasubramaniam (who works for IIT) describes how his gesture of booking an air ticket for his father, his maiden
flight, brought forth a rush of emotions and made him (Venkatesh) realize that how much we all take for granted when it comes to our
parents.


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 a 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 t 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 needs to be given to our parents and elders. Rather than my dad saying thank you to me, I woul 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 your parents. THEY ARE PRECIOUS.

Handphone Awareness

March 10, 2008 at 11:18 pm | Posted in Friends, General, Interest, Medical, Public, Statements | 3 Comments

At the rate at which we are going, we might have to live life like in the Stone Age to survive all the ills of modern technology. Pls read!

MUST READ! THIS IS TRUE!

Where do you keep your Handphone normally?

This morning I heard a true and sad story from a colleague of mine. She told me one of her friends is always having miscarriages. When the baby gets to be 2-3 months old she loses it. This happened several times over. The couple went to check with many doctors and at last one of the doctors examined the dead baby and found that the baby’s body cells kept
dying as the baby was growing in the womb until he/she could not survive.

This was because her uterus was affected by HANDPHONE RADIATION. The doctor told her she now has no chance to give birth to a healthy baby because the radiation has affected her uterus so that the major portion of the cells in her uterus have already died.

This happened because she has been
keeping her handphone in her working jacket so that the phone rested
against just on the right spot of the uterus. She had been wearing it like this for a few years.

Please beware of this and take note if you don’t want what has happened to this woman to happen to you.

Dearest friends & family members

Please do not ignore handphone radiation which will damage our health or body organs. Please put away your handphone when ever you don’t need it much.

Guys please do not keep your handphone near to the kidney position and pants pocket as this will damage your genital area and affect your ability to father a baby.
The other doctor also advised another friend to keep her handphone away from her new born baby to avoid radiation damage to the baby’s brain cells. Do not let the baby or toddler play with the handphone. This is because the small young baby or toddler is still very fragile and growing, so he/she is much more vulnerable to radiation damage.

Please remember not to sleep together with your handphone or put it next to your bed. Keep any other electronic goods (such as tvs) which also give off radiation away from your bedroom to reduce risk as we have to
sleep a few hours every day in our bedroom at night.

Further, do not imagine that if you switch off the TV there will be no radiation.
Actually it is still around in your room. It is not advisable to have even a small digital alarm clock close to your head while sleeping.

Take Care of yourself and your loved ones and forward to your beloved ones.

A Touching Story…..

A Touching Story

    My wife called, ‘How long will you be with that newspaper? Will you come here and make your darling daughter eat her food?’.

    I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene. My only daughter Sindu looked frightened.

 

    Tears were welling up in her eyes. In front of her was a bowl filled to its brim with Curd Rice. Sindu is a nice child, quite intelligent for her age.She has just turned eight. She particularly detested Curd Rice. My mother and my wife are orthodox, and believe firmly in the ‘cooling effects’ of Curd Rice! I cleared my throat, and picked up the bowl. ‘Sindu, darling,why don’t you take a few mouthful of this Curd Rice?Just for Dad’s sake, dear.

 

    Sindu softened a bit, and wiped her tears with the back of her hands. ‘OK, Dad. I will eat – not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this. But, you should…’ Sindu  hesitated.

 

    ‘Dad, if I eat this entire curd Rice, will you give me whatever I ask for?’……. ….Oh sure, darling’…. ‘Promise? ‘…….. ………

 

    ‘Promise’. I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with mine, and clinched the deal.

 

    ‘Ask Mom also to give a similar promise’, my daughter insisted.

 

    My wife put her hand on Sindu’s, muttering ‘Promise’.

 

    Now I became a bit anxious. ‘Sindu dear, you shouldn’t insist on getting a computer or any such expensive items.Dad does not have that kind of money right now. OK?’

 

    ‘No, Dad. I do not want anything expensive’.Slowly and painfully, she finished eating the whole quantity.

 

    I was silently angry with my wife and my mother for forcing my child eat something that she detested. After the ordeal was through, Sindu came to me with her eyes wide     with expectation. All our attention was on her……… ….’Dad, I want to have my head shaved off, this Sunday!’ was her demand.

 

    ‘Atrocious!’ shouted my wife, ‘A girl child having her head shaved off? Impossible!’ ‘Never in our family!’ my mother rasped.’She has been watching too much of television. Our culture is getting totally spoiled with these TV programs!’

 

    Sindu darling, why don’t you ask for something else? We will be sad seeing you with a clean-shaven head.’

 

    ‘No, Dad. I do not want anything else’, Sindu said with finality.

 

    ‘Please, Sindu, why don’t you try to understand our feelings?’ I tried to plead with her.

 

    ‘Dad, you saw how difficult it was for me to eat that Curd Rice’. Sindu was in tears. ‘And you promised to grant me whatever I ask for.Now, you are going back on your words. Was it not you who told me the story of King Harishchandra, and its moral that we should honor our promises no matter what?’

 

    It was time for me to call the shots. ‘Our promise must be kept.’

 

    ‘Are you out your mind?’ chorused my mother and wife.

 

    ‘No. If we go back on our promises, she will never learn to honor her own. Sindu, your wish will be fulfilled.’

 

    With her head clean-shaven, Sindu had a round-face, and her eyes looked big and beautiful.

    On Monday morning, I dropped her at her school. It was a sight to watch my hairless Sindu walking towards her classroom. She turned around and waved. I waved back with a smile.

 

    Just then, a boy alighted from a car, and shouted, ‘Sinduja, please wait for me!’

 

    What struck me was the hairless head of that boy. ‘May be, that is the in-stuff’, I thought.

 

    ‘Sir, your daughter Sinduja is great indeed!’ Without introducing herself, a lady got out of the car, and continued,’ That boy who is walking along with your daughter is my son Harish. He is suffering from… … leukemia.’ She paused to muffle her sobs. Harish could not attend the school for the whole of the last month. He lost all his hair due to the side effects of the chemotherapy. He refused to come back to school fearing the unintentional but cruel teasing of the schoolmates. ‘Sinduja’ visited him last week, and promised him   that she will take care of the teasing issue. But, I never imagined she would sacrifice her lovely hair for the sake of my son!

 

    Sir, you and your wife are blessed to have such a noble soul as your daughter.

 

    I stood transfixed. And then, I wept. ‘My little Angel, you are teaching me how self-less real love is!’

 

    *The happiest people on this planet are not those who live on their own terms but are those who change their terms for the ones whom they love..*
