“The train has started moving. It was packed with people of all ages, mostly with working men and women and young college guys and gals.
Near the window, seated a old man with his 30 year old son. As the train moved by, the son was overwhelmed with joy, as he was thrilled with the scenery outside, ” See dad, the scenery of green trees moving away is very beautiful.”
This behaviour from a 30 year old son made the other people feel strange about him. Every one started murmuring something or another about this son. “This guy seems to be crack.” Anup whispered to his wife.
Suddenly it started raining and the rain drops fell on the travelers through the opened window. The 30 year old son was again filled with joy, and he said to his father ” See dad, how beautiful the rain is.”
Anup’s wife got irritated with the rain drops spoiling her new suit. Anup,” Can not you see it is raining, you old man, if your son is not feeling well, get him soon to a mental asylum. And don’t disturb public henceforth.”
The old man hesitated first and then in a low tone replied, “We are on the way back from hospital, my son got discharged today morning, he was blind by birth, last week only he got his vision, these rain and nature are new to his eyes. Please forgive us for the inconvience caused.”
THINGS DON’T ALWAYS APPEAR AS THEY SEEM, SO BE SLOW TO JUDGE OTHERS AS, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, YOU ARE ALWAYS UNWARE OF THE TRUE SITUATION.”
